Study sets are marked Not For Construction and without the license necessary to legally build the home. Don't worry though, we allow a 100% upgrade credit towards a buildable licensed construction package within one year of your 1 Set Study Package purchase.
5 and 8 Set Print Packages
These are licensed print packages of the construction documents printed and shipped to you.
PDF Print Package
This PDF package is a non-modifiable, print only PDF file that saves time, gas, money, and paper! Many contractors and building jurisdictions are working with digital formats of the construction documents. The PDF print package allows for you or your contractor to distribute the construction documents to sub-contractors, use electronic submittals to apply for the building permit, and print the sets you need when you need them.
An unlocked modifiable PDF file. Same conveniences as the PDF print package with the added benefit which allows your local professional to make engineering mark-ups or design changes using compatible software.
CAD Electronic Files
By using CAD compatible software that use .dwg or .dxf file formats enables you or a local professional to modify the construction documents and integrate those changes throughout the entire plan. Once the modifications or engineering is incorporated into your design, you can reproduce as many copies of the plan needed to build the structure.
