    Q: Do your plans include details for HVAC, Plumbing, and Electrical systems?
    A: Our plans do not include details for HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical systems. HVAC system details such as location of units, type and brand of units used, and duct layout are regulated and determined by your local building codes and your choice of heating and cooling system. Regarding Plumbing and Electrical systems, you must determine the direction the water flow will enter your house and where the electrical feed will enter. Your builder, HVAC contractor, Plumber, and Electrician will detrmine the location, type of system, and calculate the necessary load requirements for your house based on your local building codes. Our Electrical Plan is strictly for suggesting the locations for fixtures, outlets, switches, etc.

    Q: Will your plans be stamped/sealed by an architect or engineer?
    A: Michael Campbell Design house plans are not stamped/sealed by an architect nor engineer. Our plans are designed to conform with the International Residential Code. Most states do not require an architect's or engineer's stamp/seal.  However, building codes vary with location and change from time to time. Consult your builder or local codes official to find out if your plans will need to be engineered by your local licensed engineer or architect.

    Q: What will it cost to build my house?
    A: The best way to determine the cost of building your house plan is to consult a builder in your area that builds houses similar to the one you are interested in.  Keep in mind that costs can vary from builder to builder and your choice of finishes, cabinetry, fixtures, etc. will greatly influence the cost of construction.  If you are getting bids from more than one builder verify that they are allowing for the same items.  You want to make sure you are comparing apples to apples.

    Q: Where can I go to see some built versions of your houses?
