Because of copyright laws 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 ensure your selection before ordering.

When you purchase a set of plans, you are purchasing a license to build. This license gives you the right to construct one house from the plan drawings. To build the house more than once and/or modify or copy without express written permission violates this copyright. For more information regarding copyright laws and penalties involved for copyright violations, click here. If you are interested in building a house more than one time, please contact American Gables Home Designs to inquire about our reuse fees.

Our house plans are designed to meet the 2018 International Residential Code for One & Two Family Dwellings. Many states, counties and cities amend the codes for their area. Consult your local building inspection department before purchase or construction begins to determine the requirements for your area. All of American Gables Home Designs, Inc. plans can be adapted to your codes and requirements through our Modifications Department.

American Gables Home Designs, Inc. was established to provide home plans that are clear, accurate, easy and affordable to build with great function and curb appeal. All floor plans, renderings and other media advertised on American Gables Home Designs, Inc. website or other media forms are property of the owner. American Gables Home Designs, Inc. is not liable for plan interpretation, or the structural integrity of buildings built from plans purchased at http://www.americangables.com. We provide home plans for construction purposes but do not oversee the construction and cannot verify that the structure is built to necessary standards. The Customer is responsible to assure that the building meets or exceeds local codes and regulations. It is the responsibility of the Customer to obtain any and all structural analysis, engineering and specifications that may be required in the municipality in which it is to be built. The Customer is to verify all lot conditions and measurements before construction. Because local codes and regulations and even methods of construction vary across the nation and internationally, certain alternative planning may be necessary to adapt the plan to your area. For this reason heating and plumbing are not included with our plans. You should be able to meet with these subcontractors to select and plan the system that is most appropriate for your area. Some municipalities may require plan review by a licensed Architect or Structural Engineer of your area. After plan purchase from http://www.americangables.com the Customer is responsible for additional expenses incurred through meeting municipality requirements or other requirements for construction.
