We can provide custom designs with full blueprints, stamped by a licensed structural engineer, which is required for you to obtain both your building permit and bank financing. Or, we can work with your architect.
Should you contract us for your design, included in our design phase are the plans for the foundation, floor, elevations, sections, details and frame schematic. The engineer’s fee is billed separately, at cost, which is dependent on the engineering required. A design takes about 4 to 6 months, sometimes longer, depending on how thought-out the design is when you come to us. The more information you bring to us, the quicker the process.
It is important to note that copyright laws state that whoever draws up the blueprints owns the design. This means that Legacy cannot create a timber frame using plans drawn by another timber frame company.
