BAUTEX PLAN ROOM

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

For Home Plans by Design Basics, LLC

Bautex has partnered with Design Basics, LLC to develop home plans that have been cus­tomized to make con­struc­tion of your home using the Bautex Wall System simple, fast and efficient. These plans include all of the details you and your builder need to begin the con­struc­tion process. These plans are copy­right­ed by Design Basics and the sale of these home plan and con­struc­tion licenses are subject to the following terms and conditions.

What Is Included in Your Con­struc­tion License

When you purchase a plan, you receive a con­struc­tion license that gives you certain rights in building the home depicted in that plan. The following sheets are included in most plan sets:

  • Cover Page. Each home plan features the front elevation and infor­ma­tive reference sections including, general notes and design criteria, abbre­vi­a­tions, and symbols for your plan.
  • Ele­va­tions. Scaled ele­va­tions for the front, rear, and sides are provided. All ele­va­tions are detailed, and an aerial view of the roof is provided.
  • Foun­da­tions. Basic foun­da­tion designs are provided, however most juris­dic­tions require a sealed set of struc­tur­al engi­neer­ing plans for foun­da­tions. See engi­neer­ing section below.
  • Main Level Floor Plan. The detailed drawings are fully dimen­sioned for ease of framing and account for the depth of the Bautex Wall System where designed.
  • Second Level Floor Plan. Dimen­sioned and drafted to the same degree of detail as the main level floor plan.
  • Elec­tri­cal and Sections. Illus­trat­ed on a separate page for clarity, the elec­tri­cal plan shows suggested elec­tri­cal layout for the main and second level floor plans. Typical wall and stair sections are provided to further explain con­struc­tion of these areas.

Con­struc­tion Print Options 

Plans are available in the following formats:

  • PDF Format: Receive your con­struc­tion drawings via email in PDF format. Print from your plotter or take to your local printer. 
  • CAD Files: Available in AutoCAD DWG & Micro­Sta­tion DGN formats. Sent via email.

Local Building Codes

Plans are drafted to meet the Uniform Building Code or IRC (Inter­na­tion­al Res­i­den­tial Code) at the time they are designed (contact us for more infor­ma­tion). Because codes and require­ments can change and may vary from juris­dic­tion to juris­dic­tion, the designers cannot warrant com­pli­ance with any specific code or reg­u­la­tion. All plans can be adapted to your local building codes and require­ments. It is the respon­si­bil­i­ty of the purchaser and/​or builder of each plan to see that the structure is built in strict com­pli­ance with all governing municipal codes (city, county, state, and federal). 

Engi­neer­ing

No struc­tur­al engi­neer­ing infor­ma­tion is included in the plans. For assis­tance with struc­tur­al engi­neer­ing services for your home, please contact a Bautex rep­re­sen­ta­tive at 855.922.8839 or [email protected]​bautexsystems.​com.

  • You may build the home based upon the home plan purchased. Before you start con­struc­tion, complete the Con­struc­tion License process by reporting the address where the home is to be built; failing to do so inval­i­dates your License and may subject you to legal penalties under federal copyright law.
