Unfortunately no. If any modifications are needed in order for your plan to meet local building code, you will have to work with a local engineer. Typically, these minor changes do not alter the design of the house, and therefore are permissible under copyright, regardless of which plan type you buy.

The contents of each 99HOMEPLANS package is unique, but all contain detailed, high-quality working drawings. You can expect to find the following standard elements in most sets of plans:

1. FRONT PERSPECTIVE
This artist’s sketch of the exterior of the house gives you an idea of how the house will look when built and landscaped.

2. FOUNDATION PLANS
This sheet shows the foundation layout including concrete walls, footings, pads, posts, beams, bearing walls, and foundation

3. DETAILED FLOOR PLANS
These plans show the layout of each floor of the house. Rooms and interior spaces are carefully dimensioned, doors and windows located, and keys are given for cross-section details provided elsewhere in the plans.

4. HOUSE AND DETAIL CROSS-SECTIONS
Large-scale views show sections or cutaways of the foundation, interior walls, exterior walls, floors, stairways, and roof details. Additional cross-sections may show important changes in floor, ceiling, or roof heights, or the relationship of one level to another. These sections show exactly how the various parts of the house fit together and are extremely valuable during construction. Additional sheets may include enlarged wall, floor and roof construction details.

5. FLOOR STRUCTURAL SUPPORTS
The floor framing plans provide detail for these crucial elements of your home. Each includes floor joist, ceiling joist, spacing, direction, span, and specifications. Beam and window headers, along with necessary details for framing connections, stairways, or dormers are also included.

6. ELECTRICAL PLAN
The electrical plan offers suggested locations with notes for all lighting, outlets, switches, and circuits. A layout is provided for each level, as well as basements, garages, or other structures. This plan does not contain diagrams detailing how all wiring should be run, or how circuits should be engineered. These details should be designed by your electrician.

7. EXTERIOR ELEVATIONS
In addition to the front exterior, your blueprint set will include drawings of the rear and sides of your house as well.These drawings give notes on exterior materials and finishes. Particular attention is given to cornice detail, brick and stone accents, or other finish items that make your home unique.

ROOF FRAMING PLANS — Please read
Some plans contain roof framing plans, however because of the wide variation in local requirements, many plans do not. If you buy a plan without a roof framing plan, you will need an engineer familiar with local building codes to create a plan to build your roof. Even if your plan does contain a roof framing plan, we recommend that a local engineer review the plan to verify that it will meet local codes.

WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED IN YOUR PLAN — ARCHITECTURAL AND ENGINEERING SEALS
Some cities and states now require that a licensed architect or engineer review and “seal” a blueprint, or officially approve it, prior to construction. Prior to application for a building permit or the start of actual construction, we strongly advise that you consult your local building official who can tell you if such a review is required.

The average turn-around time is 10-15 business days*, following the receipt of the customer’s approval of any preliminary design modifications, if applicable. *excluding holidays and peak periods.

We, and the designers we work with, have put substantial care and effort into the creation of our blueprints. However, because we cannot provide on-site consultation, supervision, and control over actual construction, and because of the great variance in local building requirements, building practices and soil, seismic, weather and other conditions, WE CANNOT MAKE ANY WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE CONTENT OR USE OF OUR BLUEPRINTS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Yes. You can ask us to amend the design after the First Concept Design is sent to you. It is quite common for a client to realize additional minor requirements after the First Concept Design is created.

We will then allow 3-5 days for you to give your comments in on the design in writing. Once we receive this, it will take us another 7 working days to prepare the Final Concept Design. The total time is taken for the work is therefore a minimum of 15 working days.

No, we do not work like this. We are professional architects with lots of experience in the design of houses, and we prefer to give our full attention to a project once we are appointed. We believe that the best way to select an architect is to look at the quality of his prior work.

Since we have worked on projects in Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Gujarat, West Bengal, Assam, and Delhi..etc, we are familiar with the basic regulations in a number of places across India. We base our designs on the National Building Code of India 2005.However, we do not undertake the process of obtaining building permissions. You will require the help of a local permissions agent for this.

We usually request our clients to share some ideas or images of houses they like and some they do not like. This helps us understand your personal choices and dreams for the house.

The common construction technique used in India is of a reinforced concrete (RCC) frame structure with brick infill walls. Windows are normally made of float glass and either wood or aluminum, and doors are usually wooden flush shutters.
Other than this we also do designs which use engineered earth, or mud. These are in the form of Compressed Stabilised Earth Blocks (CSEB), a brick made of earth that is carefully selected and mixed with a bit of water and cement, and then compressed in a press. These are water cured and not fired like conventional bricks, so they are very environmentally friendly. If properly done, they are as durable as conventional construction. Another technique that makes use of earth is rammed earth construction. To make a wall of rammed earth, one first makes a wooden mold in the correct location of the wall. One then pours a mixture of earth, water, and cement into the mold and uses a rammer to compress the mixture into a 10-cm high layer. Successive layers are added until the desired height is reached These techniques are not yet widely used, but we believe they hold a lot of potential for low-cost environment-friendly construction in India. It is essential that the earth is very carefully selected and tested, as not any earth can be used. These techniques have been developed, tested, and extensively used.

Yes, our designs can beused for places other than the Indian Sub-Continent. We can change drawings to incorporate other construction systems and climates. Many of our designs are on sale (through other gateways) in the USA and Canada.
