You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Site’s account sign-up form and any other form on the Site and/or any Site representative (such information being the “Account Registration Data”) and (b) maintain and promptly update the Account Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete.

Void Where Prohibited

Although the Site is accessible worldwide, not all products or services discussed or referenced in or on the Site are available to all parties or in all geographic locations or jurisdictions. RTB reserves the right to limit the availability of the Site and/or the provision of any Site-related products or services to any party, geographic area or jurisdiction it so desires, in its sole discretion, and to limit the quantities of any such products or services that it provides. Any offer for any products or services made on the Site is void where prohibited.

Building Codes

All house plans purchased from Ready to Build Homes are designed to comply with the International Residential Code (IRC) and to the local codes in the area where the designer resides or where the house was built.

Every state, county or municipality will have its own building and code requirements. It is possible that your plan may need to be modified to comply with these local requirements. This is particularly true in coastal areas and those facing seismic events, extreme winds, steep slopes and heavy snow. If you are building in any of these areas, it is likely that a licensed structural engineer will be needed to provide the necessary calculations and additional drawings. RBT authorizes the use of our plans conditioned on your obligation and agreement to strictly comply with all local building codes, ordinances, regulations and requirements, including permits and inspections at the time of and during construction. We recommend checking with your local building department for the most current requirements.

All pre-drawn plans from Ready to Build Homes do not carry a stamp from a licensed architect. If this is a requirement from your local building department, you will need to hire an architect or engineer to review and stamp the plans.
