Important ready-build plan information

The posted ready-build plans are outdated and were originally designed using prior iterations of the state building code. If a local building official chooses to allow the use of an outdated ready-build plan prepared under previously effective codes, they are responsible for verifying that it is in compliance with the currently adopted codes and any site-specific conditions. Accounting for any necessary compliance review time regarding local allowance of the outdated plans is subject to local policies and procedures, as further established by the building official.
