All house plans from Lifetime Design Company are designed to comply with the International Residential Code (IRC) and/or MRC 2015.
Every state, county or municipality will have its own building and code requirements. It is possible that your plan may need to be modified to comply with these local requirements. This is particularly true in coastal areas and those facing seismic events, extreme winds and heavy snow. If you are building in any of these areas, it is likely that a licensed structural engineer will be needed to provide the necessary calculations and additional drawings. We authorize the use of our plans conditioned on your obligation and agreement to strictly comply with all local building codes, ordinances, regulations and requirements, including permits and inspections at the time of and during construction. We recommend checking with your local building department for the most current requirements.
All plans from Lifetime Design Company do not carry a stamp from a licensed architect. If this is a requirement from your local building department, you will need to hire an architect or engineer to review and stamp the plans.
Truss Plans (floor or roof) and Plot Plans (if applicable) are for reference only and will not include engineering.
