PREFAB HOME FRAMING KITS and SHELL HOMES

We include Stamped Structural Plans for the framing kit and shell – wall structures and roof.

Does not include foundation as site visit is required by most engineers, you can find a local BCIN  drafts-person that can do a foundation plan for a few hundred dollars.

If you want the following, then we can provide -see charges and recommendations below: 

  1. Foundation (stamped) – you would have to provide all required site information - additional charges $1 per sf.
  2. Electrical layout –we can do one for you – but most often provided by the trade doing the install and it is better for you for future servicing and inspection purposes - additional charges $1 per sf.
  3. Plumbing layout – we can do one for you – but most often provided by the trade doing the install and it is better for you for future servicing and inspection purposes - additional charges $1 per sf.
  4. MECHANICAL HEAT LOSS – we can do so based on your choice of mechanical systems (electric or gas ONLY), but again most often completed by the company that is selling you the furnace and installing it and it is better for servicing and inspection purposes - additional charges $1 per sf.
  5. Geothermal, Solar or in Floor systems all have to be done by your Service provider we do not provide.

 Please note that if you want Green Terra Homes to do any of the additional plans listed 1 -5 above - we would need to know from the beginning of the design process. 

 

 STEEL BUILDINGS AND GARAGES:

The kit just comes with Structural Drawings and details – not stamped.

If you need it stamped by an engineer for your jurisdiction for permitting, we charge $565 – what does that plan include? Framing structure, roof and load calculations for the jurisdiction and Engineering for the Slab

ON CHASSIS PRODUCTS - Mobile Homes and Tiny Homes, and Park Model 

  • THE CSA LABEL IS ALL THAT IS NEEDED AS IT IS A MOBILE PORTABLE ON CHASSIS UNIT NOT A HOUSE
  • IF A MANUFACTURED HOME IS GOING ON A PERMANENT FOUNDATION, YOU WILL DO THE ONSITE PAD PLANS - again because there is the site to consider and often if it is in a park or a lot that has specific requirements better to have you do it locally and communicate a copy to us.
