Return Policy
All sales on house plans and customization/modifications are final. No refunds or exchanges can be given once your order has started the fulfillment process.

Consult your local building official who can tell you if a review of your plan by a licensed architect or engineer is required prior to submission of a building permit. Due to the great differences in geography and climate throughout Africa, each country has its own building regulations. Your plan may need to be modified to comply with local requirements. In addition, you may need to obtain permits or inspections from local governments before and in the course of construction. We authorize the use of the plans on the express condition that you consult a local licensed architect or engineer of your choice prior to beginning construction, and strictly comply with all local building regulations, ordinances, and requirements.

A. Use of the Plans
1. The plans are protected by EU and American Copyright Laws. Any use of the information contained herein beyond the one-time use authorized by a purchase of prints, or any duplication, publication, sale or distribution of any part of these plans without the prior written consent of the Original Designer represents a violation of Federal Laws subject to the prescribed penalties.

2. Any use of the plans, or modifications of the plans, by purchasers, builders or others is done at their own risk. Licensee should have the plans reviewed by a local professional architect or engineer before the start of construction. The information contained within the Construction Prints is to indicate design intent and basic construction detailing. It is the builder's responsibility to provide standard construction details and practices which will result in a structurally sound and weatherproof finished product.

B. Content of the Plans
1. The plans provided by the Designer do not include any electrical, plumbing, or air conditioning drawings due to the wide variety of local codes and climatic conditions. Licensee should have a local electrical engineer, mechanical engineer or builder provide these drawings as may be required for permits and construction. The foundation plan and associated details are provided as a basic guide for a typical foundation system. This typical foundation system is not site or location specific. Licensee should have a local architect or licensed engineer review these plans and provide a site-specific foundation design if found necessary. The plans provided by the Designer are not stamped or signed by an architect, designer, or engineer. Local building codes, laws, regulations, or departments may require the Designer's plans to be signed and stamp by an engineer and/or architect. Revisions to the plans required by local building department or codes are not included as part of the Custom Change Services defined by this contract. Plan revision services may be provided by the designer or by Mudbrix, but will be done at an additional fee.

2. These Plans provide ideas and concepts and are not intended to be complete in all respects and details. Variations in standard sizes of window and door brands and types and use of different materials and thicknesses can change details. Varying local codes, ordinances, regulations, foundation requirements, and the layout of electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems can also change details.

C. Builder's Responsibility
1. It is the responsibility of the builder to assure that all work is in accordance with the latest edition of all applicable Nation, State, and Local Building Codes. It is the builder's responsibility to assure that all work is in accordance with the latest edition of all applicable Construction Standards.
2. It is the responsibility of the builder to assure that all manufactured articles, material, and equipment are applied, installed, connected, erected, used, cleaned, adjusted, operated and conditioned as directed by the manufacturers. Builders shall follow all instructions to sustain and preserve all expressed or implied warranties and guarantees.
3. It is the responsibility of the builder to assure that all materials, equipment and components are new and of good quality.
4. It is the responsibility of the builder to check all dimension and details for overall accuracy appropriate to the local conditions and the final selection of materials such as masonry, floor joists, lumber, structural members, construction panels, roofing, etc., all of which can create variations in dimension and details. For example, if standard lumber joists are used in place of engineered floor joists, the floor-to-floor dimension would vary from the Plans and require revised stair dimension and framing.

D. Disclaimer
1. Names of materials and manufacturers shown on the Plans do not represent an endorsement or recommendation by the Designer. Final selections of materials are the responsibility of the home Client and/or builder, including, but not limited to proper installation of materials, nailing, gluing, caulking, insulating, flashing, roofing, weatherproofing and many other small items and details not necessarily indicated on the Plans, and over which the Designer has no control or responsibility. The Designer shall not be held liable for any errors, omissions, or deficiencies in any form by any party whatsoever.
