How to Order Ordering from Shelter-Kit® is easy. After you have selected one of our Popular Kit Plans or your custom design has been approved, we will send you a completed order form for your signature. Planning and ordering suggestions
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.
Contact your local building officials to determine what technical information or drawings they will require. We can also provide engineer-stamped drawings, specific to your building site for the lower 48 states. 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 drawings. 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 house kits meet the current International Building Code, and local variations of the code.
