About House Floor Plans Building Codes
Each plan is designed to be consistent with CABO One and Two Family Dwelling Code or the International Residential Code in effect at the time the plan was created (refer to copyright year located on the house floor plans), but Elements does not warrant such conformity. Modifications may be necessary to meet applicable building codes or ordinances. Consult a builder, architect or other construction professional as necessary. Elements specifically disclaims any responsibility for ensuring the plans, and/or any house built using the plans, satisfies local or other applicable building codes. Determining and complying with all applicable codes is your responsibility. Heating/air conditioning layouts are not included. Manufacturer instructions should be followed for all materials, appliances, and systems. Consult a local mechanical contractor for systems suitable for local climate conditions.
Additionally, stock plans and custom house floor plans do not have a professional stamp attached. If your building department requires one, they will only accept a stamp from a professional licensed in the state where you plan to build. In this case, you will need to take your house plans to a local engineer or architect for review and stamping.
