This page contains CCHRC plan sets. While we are sharing these plans with the public, please keep in mind they will not necessarily work at your site.
PLEASE NOTE: The information contained in these documents was developed and published for specific climatic and site conditions. These documents are not a substitute for a detailed architectural plan set or site-specific engineering. Any application of this information will need to consider site-specific issues including, but not limited to, applicable codes and structural design considerations for soil type, weather, and wind and snow load conditions. It is essential that a structural engineer review the plans to ensure they meet design criteria appropriate to the site. These homes have many elements that require specialized knowledge. We strongly recommend that skilled tasks, plumbing and electric work be done by professionals.
