Frank Betz Associates, Inc. plans are created with the highest standards of quality. Each plan goes through a comprehensive checking process to ensure accuracy. Our plans are drawn to meet the 2012 International Residential Code of One & Two Family Dwellings, the 2012 International Building Code with Georgia amendments and 2009 International Energy Conservation Code. As we are a residential design firm, our plans are not stamped by an architect or engineer — but most cities and counties do not require this. Many states and counties amend the codes in their area, so be sure to consult your local building officials to determine the plan, code and site requirements.Search House Plans
The square footage of our home plans is calculated by measuring from outside the exterior frame wall. The square footage does not include decks, porches, garages, basements, attics, fireplaces, and two-story or vaulted areas. Stairs are counted once with the first floor. Balconies and open walkways in two-story and vaulted areas are included with the second floor.
Our plans include all of the drawings typically needed for construction, except for site specific information and heating or cooling requirements. Each building department's requirements for plan submission vary. We recommend that you contact the building official in your area for their specific requirements.
We offer materials workbooks to allow you to estimate the construction costs and provide for easy, organized project management. Set up in Excel format, the quantity of every item needed for construction is itemized. The workbooks are organized to follow a typical construction schedule, to ensure that materials are delivered in the proper sequence. Workbooks are available for most, but not all, plans.
Whether you want to change the elevation or simply add a room, we can easily modify any floor plan to fit your needs.I would like to modify a plan
