Foundations ~ House plans show full basements under living areas. Some
plans also show walk out basements and/ or garage under.
The foundations we show for garages are for a poured concrete frost
wall on footings,
suitable for New England. This can be adjusted by a builder for conditions
and codes in other areas
2. Modifying plans

sizes etc. can be done prior to construction by your builder. You
and your builder should check with your building department for compliance
with all local codes and zoning before construction.
3. Reversed Plans

charge. Just mark your order with the plan number and "REVERSED"
4. Bill of Materials (B.O.M.)
B.O.M.'s are available for some (but not all) of our garage plan collection
for an additional $35 with or without a plan order. We're working
to get them all. Please verify availability before ordering.
5. Building Codes

they were created. They are designed for Southern New Hampshire and
Because codes are subject to frequent change, local requirements and
varying interpretation, we cannot guarantee compliance with any specific
codes or requirements. You and your builder and local building department
must review and adjust the plans for code requirements prior to construction.

shown on the plans if required.

7. Construction Costs
~ Sorry we can't do building cost estimates since materials and labor
vary for different locales and conditions. You should be able to
get free estimates from builders if they know you are serious about building.
That's where a good set of plans can help so you know everyone you're talking
to is bidding the same job. Be sure to allow plenty of time for estimates
and planning. Estimates done with an adequate time allowance
will be more accurate than those which are rushed and include "guess-timate
just in case we forgot something" numbers.
