PDF, CAD or Repro House Plan Format
Our house plans are sold in 3 different formats. Each has their own benefits and draw backs. The simplest, and fastest to get is the PDF format. That can be emailed to you, it can be printed easily. And you can open the PDF on your home computer and look at the plans. The CAD format is for people that want to make extensive changes to a plan. It is supplied in DWG file format. You will need CAD software to open and look at the plans. They will require conversion in order for them to be printed. Lastly is the the Reproducible Set. This is just a set of plans printed on bond paper. This option incurs shipping charges. If you need more than one set you will need to get copies made.
All these formats come with a Copyright Release. This allows you to make modifications to the plan. And it allows you to make copies as needed to build a house JUST ONCE. You are not licensed to build more than one house with these licenses. If you wish to build a plan more than once you will need to obtain a re-use license. Please contact us for more information about the re-use fees.
