Provider hereby grants to Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license in the United States to use a selected Home Plan during the Term within accordance of their license type. Home Plan Classic, Home Plan Plus and Home Plan Unlimited customers must have an active license to request a site-solved Builder Plan. Home Plan Unlimited customers may build from the master plan set, if permissible all applicable governing agencies while in license. Home Plan Unlimited customer may not build from the master plan set if their license has expired, terminated, or for any other reason is not in an active state.

  • Copyright Notices. The Customer may print sets of the Home Plan, as needed, to obtain permits and the construction of Customer’s project during the term of the Agreement. However, Customer shall ensure that use of the Home Plans is marked with appropriate copyright notices specified by Provider in a prominent position on such printed plans.

  • Modifications. The Home Plans may be used only in the form and in such manner as Provider specifically approves in writing (email is sufficient) in advance. Therefore, Provider must give written approval to any modifications to the Home Plans. Customer acknowledges that all right, title, and interest in and to the Home Plans, as well as any modifications made to the Home Plans are owned by Provider. If Customer acquires any rights in the Home Plans by operation of law or otherwise, Customer irrevocably assigns such rights to Provider without further action by either party.

  • Reservation of Rights. Provider reserves all rights not expressly granted to Customer under this Agreement. Except for the license granted in this Agreement, Customer acknowledges that all right, title, and interest in and to the Home Plans, as well as any modifications or improvements made by Customer are owned by Provider.

  • Site Specific Requirements. Although the Home Plan is intended to follow International Residential Building Code (IRC) requirements, the local building department or other governing agencies may have special requirements specific to the construction site area. For example, depth of foundation in relation to the frost line, differences in energy codes for building efficiency, wind loads in hurricane/tornado zones, snow loads in regions of the country where there is excessive snow, or local homeowner association requirements for construction. For these requirements, additional documents may be required from the Customer, an engineer, or local governing board and are not the responsibility of the Provider.

  • Seal. By default, the Home Plans are not signed, sealed, or stamped by professional engineers or architects. Local building codes, laws, regulations, or departments may require the Home Plans to be signed and sealed by a local engineer for building department submission.

  • Additional Services. Any other services are not included and are managed through separate Agreements.

 

The Customer is responsible to:

  • Engage any necessary professionals to review and/or adapt the plan for local code and site-specific requirements, including procurement of any necessary building permits. Home Plans have been drawn to meet generally accepted requirements. Plans are not specific to site or local codes, including site specific foundation requirements and design. The layout of electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems can also change details.

  • Check all dimensions and details and verify conformance with governing code requirements for the geographic area in which the structure is to be built, prior to starting construction. All structural, mechanical, and electrical requirements shall also be reviewed with a licensed professional before construction begins. Codes govern over drawings, and dimensions govern over scale.

  • Ensure all work is in accordance with the latest edition of all applicable national, state, and local building codes. Also ensure that all work is conducted in accordance with the latest edition of all applicable construction standards.

  • Ensure all materials, equipment, and components used in construction are new and of good quality and that all manufactured articles, material, and equipment are applied, installed, connected, erected, used, cleaned, adjusted, operated, and conditioned as per manufacturers requirements and as per industry standards. Follow all instructions to sustain and preserve all expressed or implied warranties and guarantees.

  • Check all dimensions and details for overall accuracy appropriate to the local conditions and the final selection of materials such as masonry, floor joists, lumber, structural members, construction panels, roofing, etc., all of which can create variations in dimension and details. For example, if standard lumber joists are used in place of engineered floor joists, the floor-to-floor dimension would vary from the Home Plans and require revised stair dimensions and framing. Customer shall verify all dimensions in field prior to any fabrication.

  • Perform or provide for construction supervision to ensure that construction conforms to the Home Plans. Provider has no responsibility for construction means, methods, techniques, sequences, procedures, or safety precautions in connection with the work.

  • Select and properly install all materials, including, but not limited to proper installation of materials, nailing, gluing, caulking, insulating, flashing, roofing, weatherproofing, and many other small items and details not necessarily indicated on the Home Plans names of materials and manufacturers shown on the Home Plans do not represent an endorsement or recommendation by Provider but rather a guide.

  • Facilitate and coordinate all work performed by all trades i.e., plumbing contractor, electrical contractor, framing contractor, etc.
