What Your House Plan Should Have (cont., p.6)


House plans can vary greatly in their complexity.  Bigger, more luxurious houses obviously have more complex plans.

But a full set of plans that you can build from needn’t be all that complex.

In addition to the specification sheets already mentioned, you’ll need a set of plans that at least includes floor plan, electrical and plumbing plans (which may be drawn on the same pages as the floor plan) foundation plan, site plan, roof plan, and elevations.  I remind you again to check with your local building inspector’s office for their requirements before purchasing a set of plans.

 

A set of plans may also contain a landscaping plan, trim detail, and a separate door and window schedule.


These, however, are probably not required by your local building office, so you may omit them to save money.


Following are typical examples of what these elements look like.
