General Notes & Disclaimers
1) These drawings have been prepared to meet generally accepted professional standards and practices, but have been developed without reference to the Licensee’s specific site or geographical location. THESE ARE NOT STAMPED ARCHITECTURAL DRAWINGS. No foundation design has been provided. Local site conditions, such as frost depth, soil bearing capacity, seismic and wind zones, potential natural disasters (floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.), exposure, etc. may vary significantly. Local code requirements for such life-safety requirements as stair width, stair rise and run, egress windows and smoke detectors, etc. may vary from those shown herein. The strength of materials selected and used by Licensee (such as lumber), as well as locally-available hardware and fasteners, also may vary.
Each municipality, county and state in the United States and Canada as well as other countries has its own building codes and regulations, and its own zoning laws and other ordinances. Your plan may need to be modified to comply with local requirements. Licensee may need to obtain permits from, and allow inspections by, local government agencies before and during construction. Soil, climate, along with your local codes and regulations, can affect any foundation and building design.
Some municipalities, cities and states also require you to have a licensed architect or engineer review and affix a "seal" to your plans prior to construction. As stated above, THESE DOCUMENTS ARE NOT STAMPED AND SEALED PLANS and, as is, are NOT suitable for submittal to local code officials for permits in most locations.
