Changing Plans to Local Codes
The house plans of McLeod Home Design are designed to meet codes and conditions of the Columbia Basin for Washington State at the time that they were designed. Design conditions in the area are high winds, soil conditions, and snow loads during winter.
Since requirements and codes can change and may vary from county to county, we cannot guarantee compliance with any specific code or regulation for areas that are not listed on are verified areas. Don’t worry though, your plans may need some quick modifications to comply with local building conditions ( seismic and soil conditions, energy codes, snow loads, zoning regulations and other ordinances or requirements). It is the responsibility of the purchaser and /or builder of each plan to see that the structure is built in strict compliance with the governing building codes and municipal codes (city, county, state and federal). We recommend the use of the services of a local architect or residential design professional to verify compliance with local codes and requirements in your area.
Compensation for Plan Changes Requested by Purchaser
When the Purchaser requests changes to a Standard Stock Plan Package, it is agreed that McLeod Home Designs will be compensated for the time expended by it’s architect and draftsmen to make the changes to the Study Plans for Purchaser review, even if the Purchaser later decides not to proceed with the changes to the Construction Drawings.
Plans are sold as-is
All construction plans ordered through McLeod Home Design are provided as-is and we disclaim all other warranties, express or implied including merchantability or fitness of purpose. Most of the time our drawings are accurate, we take pride in being as accurate as possible, but occasionally we are human and we make some mistakes that are minor. Before building, the purchaser must review the drawings and specifications. Our drawings and specifications may contain errors, omissions, typographical errors, or other inaccuracies. The purchaser and/or his contractor must therefore carefully inspect all notations, dimensions and details in these drawings and assume responsibility for the accuracy of the same. The McLeod Home Design company and its employees, architect or consulting engineers are not liable for incidental, special, consequential, or indirect damages of any kind, including, but not limited to, loss of anticipated profits, business opportunity or other economic loss arising out of the use of services or any construction plans received from us even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damage.
It is the purchaser’s and/or his contractor’s responsibility to ensure the accuracy, compliance with applicable statute or regulation, and fitness of purpose of any plans or construction information received from us prior to use thereof. In the event that any liability is imposed upon us, its liability to you or any third party shall not exceed the price paid for the our house plan product.
