Terms & Conditions

  • License Agreement and Copyright Notice for House Plans 

    All of the house plans presented here are protected under the Federal Copyright Act, Title XVII of the United States Code. John Tee retains title and ownership of the original plan documents and retains the copyright in the plans, which includes the right to control copying and alteration of the plans as well as construction of a house based on the plan. The house plan licensed to you may not be resold or used by any other person. Whether you have the right to copy or modify a house plan or to construct a house based on a plan depends on the type of plan you choose to purchase.


  • Copying and Modification Rights

    To obtain the right to copy or modify a house plan, you must purchase a PDF Plan Set or an electronic CAD File. When you purchase a Planning Set or a Construction Set, you do not have the right to copy or modify the plan.


  • Construction License and Compliance with Codes

    When you purchase a John Tee house plan in the form of a PDF File, CAD File or Construction Set, you, as Licensee, obtain the right to use these documents to construct a single house and for no other purpose. Use of these plans is authorized expressly conditioned upon your obligation and agreement to strictly comply with all local building codes, ordinances, regulations and requirements—including permits and inspections at the time of construction. Due to differences in time and place and continuing changes in national codes, the plan you order may need to be modified to comply with the codes in your area. However, purchase of a Construction Set does not give you the right to modify or copy the plan. To make modifications or copies, you must purchase a PDF Plan Set or CAD File.


  • Product Exchange Policy

    We want you to be happy with your purchase. Each set of house plans is specially printed and shipped to you in response to your specific order. Consequently, requests for refunds cannot be honored. If, however, you ordered a Construction Set of blueprints which, for some reason, cannot be used, we will be pleased to exchange it within 30 days of the purchase date. Please note that a 20% exchange/handling fee will be assessed for all exchanges. For more information, call us toll-free at (888) 362-5517.

  • NOTE:  PDF Plan Sets, CAD files or Planning Sets cannot be returned for any reason.  Contact us to discuss exchanges.
