Refund Policy & FAQ

Refund Policy

Because of U.S. copyright laws specifically by 17 U.S. Code 102(8) and the possibilities of making illegal copies of the plans you received, our plans may not be returned for credit or refund under any circumstances once the order has been processed. Please contact us with any questions before placing your order.

All house plans on buildmax.com were designed to accommodate the local codes and requirements at the time & location the original house was designed, these may not fall directly in line with your local regulations, and it is your responsibility to follow up with your local building department to ensure compliance is accomplished. All stock, custom or modified plan purchases are final, and we cannot refund or exchange any plan after date of purchase.

Local Codes

In some regions, there are additional steps you will need to take to insure your house plans follow local codes. Some areas of North America have extremely strict structural engineering requirements. Examples of this would be things like areas of California and the Pacific Coast that are on active fault lines and more prone to natural disasters, areas at risk for tropical storms and hurricanes such as the East coast, the Gulf coast & the Carolinas. Tornado Alley in the Midwest will most certainly have interesting structural engineering requirements set in place. Also New York, New Jersey, Nevada, and parts of Illinois require review by a local professional as well. If you are building in these areas, count on having to hire a state licensed structural engineer to look over and approve the designs and potentially provide additional drawings and recalculations required by your building department. Pretty much every region of the United States has some type of specific requirement due to natural elements, you may need to leave room in your budget for the purchase CAD drawings so an engineer or architect can make the appropriate changes needed. Building departments typically have a print-out they will provide you listing all the items they require to obtain a building permit.
Something else to be aware of with stock plans, they do not have a professional stamp attached. If your building department requires one, this means they will only accept a stamp from a professional that is licensed in the state where you plan to build. In this case, you will need to take your house plans to a local engineer or architect for a full review and a stamp showing the plans have been approved by a state licensed architect or engineer. In addition to this, plans which are used to construct homes in the state of Nevada are required to be drawn by a licensed Nevada architect. If you are not fully aware of all the Local regulations just go down and check with your local building department, they will be able to provide you with every code requirement and specification you need for your plans to be 100% compliant with the local regulations in your area.

Building Permits

In addition to the house plans you order; many jurisdictions require a site plan be drawn up that indicates where on the property the structure will be placed. For an additional fee, BuildMax may be able to assist in the design of the site plan if you provide us with the plot plan or deed descriptions. Some areas of the country require specific beam size for roof loads depending upon snowfall in the region. If your lot is not tied to a sanitary sewer system you may also need a septic design to be drawn by a licensed professional. Many areas now have area-specific energy codes that also must be followed to certain specifications. There are several free energy code calculators online that your local building department may accept. Your builder may also be able to help with this.
