Sample Plans



Payment is due for all work completed, even if client decides not to build house or requests Designer to stop work prior to plan set completion. Amount due at time of work stoppage will be based on Designer’s estimate of percentage complete applied to total amount remaining due. Client agrees to pay Designer within one week of invoice date, unless mutually agreeable arrangements are made otherwise.

If client elects to do a complete redesign, this is equivalent to a completely new plan set. New plan = new fees. Work begins on new plan when all previously accrued fees are paid current. A new $500.00 base plan fee will also be required in order to schedule new plan into Designer’s current workload. Plans are provided “as-is”. Designer disclaims all other warranties, express or implied, including merchantability or fitness of purpose. Designer not liable for incidental, special, consequential or indirect damages of any kind, including, but not limited to, loss of anticipated profits, business opportunity or other economic loss arising out the use of Designer’s services or plans prepared thereby. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure the accuracy, compliance with applicable statute, regulation or fitness of purpose of any plans received prior to use thereof. While every attempt has been made to ensure accuracy, Designer is not liable for errors, omissions or details not specified, if not brought to Designer’s attention prior to start of cost estimating, financing process and/or construction. in utilization of these plans by any and all parties. Designer solely relies on client’s stated use and purpose of building to be constructed. 

Designer is not, and does not represent himself to be an architect. In most states, including Tennessee, the practice of Residential Design is exempt from the laws governing the practice of architecture. Designer will perform no work outside the exemptions from the practice of architecture listed in Tennessee Code Annotated Section 62-2-102(b). Designer assumes no responsibility for building construction inspection, site suitability, geotechnical or structural conditions. Some localities require architectural stamping for all plans, Designer will advise if that is the case for your particular site. Client is responsible for any structural (such as foundation or retaining wall design), mechanical, surveying, geotechnical or other professional services if required by permitting authorities for complete plan submittal.

Client is also responsible during initial meeting to advise Designer if plan being prepared is intended to be used for overnight rental. If not disclosed and is then determined to be the case by permitting agency, all time and costs associated to rectify permitability are solely the responsibility of Client. As of 2024, new regulations have been implemented by Sevier County and other municipalities which may require additional plan details, higher levels of code compliance (IBC vs. IRC, State Fire Marshall approval, etc.) and/or architectural stamping if over certain habitable space square footage or occupancy thresholds.
