All of our house plans are designed to conform to the building code in use at the time and place of creation. Most building codes in the United States are similar because they meet industry-standard minimums that are based on three nationally recognized standards.
Building codes set minimum standards. They are established and enforced by your local government, usually through your city or county’s building department.
Most states, counties, and local municipalities have adopted codes from one of the three nationally recognized building codes: UBC (Uniform Building Code), BOCA (Building Officials and Code Administrators), and CABO (Council of American Building Officials). All are very similar in content.
Best wishes in the building of your new home design!
