Talk with your local building or zoning officials to see whether you will be permitted to build on the site you have chosen, and to determine what information they will require for a Building Permit. Ask if there are unusual local conditions such as high snow, wind or seismic loads. We can design for high wind and snow loads, and seismic conditions.
Talk with your local building officials to determine
what technical information or drawings are required. We offer a design service exclusively for our kit buildings and will work with you to create a custom Drawing Package, which will include agreed-upon floor plans and elevation (external side view) drawings of your home, cabin, barn or garage. We can also provide engineer-stamped drawings, specific to your building site, for all 50 states and all Canadian provinces. Engineer-stamped drawings may be ordered when you order your kit, or at a later date. Please contact us by phone or e-mail to discuss your plans and we will provide you with a quote for a Drawing Package and/or engineer-stamped plans. Drawing prices will vary based on the complexity of your building. All of our drawings are copyrighted, and may only be used for the construction of one building, purchased from Shelter-Kit. Our barns meet the requirements of the current International Building Code and local variations of the code.
You may choose an existing plan from one of our Galleries, or contact us for other existing plans. We can work from your sketches, or with plans you have purchased elsewhere. We can also create a custom design for you. Please contact us for more information.
