While we strive to work with architects that design homes that all meet the IRC at the time that they are designed, architects are unable to take into account the local codes of places where these homes may be built, and some of these plans could therefore potentially not work for your building project.
Different states, counties and municipalities may have different requirements, especially when it comes to either working on 3-storey homes, or other scenarios where there are usually stricter building codes.
Before you start building your home, it is imperative that you ensure the plan lives up to the applicable building codes where you live, which may require a licensed structural engineer reviewing and stamping the plans when you are applying for local building permits.
Should any liability be imposed on Passion Plans, Passion Plans’ liability, whether it is to you or any third party will not be in excess of what you paid for the house plans when you bought them, and Passion Plans cannot be held responsible for any wrongdoing occurred throughout the process of building your home.
