|CUSTOM DESIGNS & MODIFICATIONS|
All house plans are to be used to build only one dwelling and unless you have purchased a vellum or reproducible set, these plans are not to be copied or modified. If you would like to modify your newly purchased design, please refer to the information below:
When purchasing a standard or vellum set of blueprints from our design firm, you have the option to customize your William E. Poole home to meet your special requirements and needs with our in-house design services. However, should you decide to have someone other than our firm modify or redraw these plans, you should know that it is against the law to do so without the purchase from us of a license to modify and construct one house. Upon purchase of a William E. Poole home plan, you receive a complimentary 30-minute consultation with our designer.
If you do not want to purchase the plan prior to consultation, there will be a $150 consultation fee charged to you before the meeting takes place for each hour & $250 for each additional hour. The consultation fee is not prorated and can last for as long as you need. Each appointment time is held by a credit card. If you feel additional time is needed after the first consultation, please set up another consultation appointment.
The consultation can be done via telephone or in-house. During this consultation our designer will assess the changes you would like to make to the house plan and provide an estimate of the charges for the modifications and a time frame in which the work can be accomplished. We believe that with our vast knowledge of each and every William E. Poole house plan we can effectively and efficiently modify your house plan to fit both your site and lifestyle.
For more information regarding our in-house design services for customizing your William E. Poole house plan or to schedule a consultation, please contact our office.
|STANDARD PLAN PURCHASE|
LET US HELP YOU MAKE YOUR PLAN MODIFICATIONS
Standard plan purchases can be made by simply calling 910-251-8980. It is against the law to copy standard sets of house plans, construct more than one dwelling, or make changes to the existing standard plan set. Should you need additional sets or changes, contact our office. If you need to make changes, remember, custom design is our specialty. By choosing the creative team at William E Poole Designs, Inc., you will get the full benefit of our expertise which includes a complete understanding of the total concept as well as the aesthetics of our original design. By having our firm complete your requested changes, a warranty on your final plans will be in effect and — a FULL REFUND— of your house plan purchase will be applied to the cost of modifying your plan.
As stated before, should you decide to have someone other than our firm modify or redraw these plans, you should know that it is against the law to do so without the purchase from us of a license to modify and construct one house. Do not use your plans to build more than one house. You as the original purchaser of the plans are the only one licensed to authorize construction of the home. Anyone who participates in a copyright violation is responsible.This includes purchasers, designers, architects, engineers, drafters, homeowners, builders, contractors, subcontractors, copy shops, blue printers, developers, & real estate agencies. William E Poole Designs, Inc. plans are protected under federal copyright laws. Any reproduction or modification of the plans without the express written consent of William E Poole Designs, Inc. is prohibited.
A reproducible master or PDF set of plans are used when you would like to have an architect or designer in your local area, other than William E Poole Designs, Inc., to make changes to an existing plan. These plans are sold as one set. Reproducible plans are intended for minor changes only. We advise you to consult with your local blueprint shop for advice on how to print copies once the changes have been made. A copyright release, or End User Agreement Form, is included with the reproducible master and or PDF plans so that you may reproduce up to 12 copies of the plans as a one time use for constructing a single dwelling without infringement to copyright laws. It is important that you keep a copy of your license, end-user agreement form, to include with the plans that are taken to the copy shop. If you should need to make more than 12 copies of your vellum plan, please contact our office to obtain an additional license.
