Who draws up the plans?

Plans for projects such as room additions can usually be drawn up by a qualified individual such as a draftsman. Other projects may require plans prepared and signed by an architect or engineer licensed by the State of Texas.

In addition, some kit-type projects come with construction plans. Before you buy such kits, call 512-847-0025 to make sure your kit is accepted; then, just submit the instruction sheet or other documentation when you apply for your permit, as it serves as a project plan.
