Number of Sets
Five sets of blueprints are
the usual minimum number required: your contractor, local building department,
financing institution, appropriate government insuring agency, yourself
for future use. An extra set is included to save time and money replacing
lost or damaged blueprints. Subcontractors may also require an additional
set or sets.
If you desire, we will furnish reverse plans. If you find that a particular
house plan would suit you or your lot better if it were reversed, we
will (on request) send the blueprints in reverse of what is shown. There
is an additional $50.00 fee for this service.
A signed and stamped USDA
Certification for code compliance is available for an additional $40.00
fee per home.
Your contractor can make changes in dimensions on your plans, in most
instances with little trouble. However, if you wish to make serious
alterations in the plans, why not look a bit further among our other
plans? You may find exactly what you want in another plan, or you may
find one that can meet your requirements with only minor changes. If
you require changes to meet local requirements or handicap accessability,
contact our office. Our designers will discuss the changes and any fees
If, for example, the house plan calls for frame siding, you can build
it of brick, concrete block or other material. Your contractor can do
this easily--only the width of the exterior walls must be adjusted.

Plans Sold Nationwide
Because our working-drawing blueprints are sold all over the country,
local building standards may vary from area to area and must be understood
to take precedence in actual construction. These blueprints can only
conform to local standards by reference to local building codes, public
utility company regulations, etc. in your area. In addition, certain
elements such as the heating plant must be determined locally, depending
on climate, building practices, and on costs which vary from region
to region, to insure their most efficient and economical utilization.
