We want to make sure the house you choose is perfect for you. Please be certain that the plan you have selected suits your needs prior to purchasing.
Due to the intellectual knowledge shared in our product, all sales are final and cannot be returned or exchanged under any circumstances.
All house plans sold by Archival Designs Inc. have been designed to comply with the International Residential Code (IRC) and to the local codes in the area where the designer resides or where the house was built.
Building Codes: Every city, local municipality, and county throughout the United States has different requirements regarding the construction of a set of plans. Prior to purchasing your set of house plans, we recommend meeting with your local building officials in order to determine the building requirements for your area. Our plans are designed to meet most national building codes at the time they were originally drawn; however, many states and counties amend the codes for their local area. It is, therefore, the responsibility of the purchaser(s) and/or builder to ensure that the structure is constructed to meet the codes of their local area.
Engineering: Some states require that a licensed architect or engineer review and stamp the plans. If this is the case where you will be building, a local professional will be able to assist you. Stock house plans do not come stamped or signed by an architect or engineer, and may not include structural engineering notes/calculations.
