What Building Codes are the plans designed to?

Plans are prepared to meet top professional standards and practices and the "North Carolina Residential Code." Plans are to be used only as a guide in the construction of the designed structure. Since plans represent a design for construction in North Carolina, and because of varying Interpretations among Code Officials as well as the fact that Codes change frequently over time, we cannot warrant compliance with any of the specific building codes and ordinances. Modifications may be necessary for compliance with local building codes, zoning regulations, ordinances and restrictions. Most cottage plans show a relative building height, as measured to the ground at 4" below the ground floor slab, or as indicated on the plan. Building heights must be checked for the location to be built on, in relation to the maximum building heights as allowed by local zoning codes and in relation to current flood elevations for the site. Plans may need to be elevated more than indicated on Coastal Designs plans in order to meet Flood Elevation requirements.

The help of a Design Professional, such as an Architect or Structural Engineer may become necessary to comply with your local site conditions. Coastal Designs will not be responsible for any changes of the plans made by others. It shall be the responsibility of the Owner and/or Builder to comply with local building codes, ordinances, restrictions, regulations and laws that may require revisions to these drawings, specifications and details. All Federal, State, and Local Regulations, Codes & Ordinances shall be considered as part of all plans purchased from Coastal Designs (CD) and shall take preference over anything shown described or implied where same are at variance. Coastal Designs assumes no liability from any home built from their plan designs. All construction plans ordered through CD is provided "as-is" as a Guide only in construction and CD disclaims all other warranties, express or implied, including merchantability or fitness of purpose, unintentional errors & omissions. Owner & Contractor to verify all areas prior to starting. CD is not liable for incidental, special, consequential, or indirect damages of any kind, including, but not limited to, loss of anticipated profits, business opportunity, or other economic loss arising out of the use of services or any construction plans received from CD.
