2 OPTIONS OF PDF FILE FORMATS ARE AVAILABLE!
OPTION 1: PDF file format - original plan size: 18"x24" or 24"x36"
The "PDF file format - original plan size" is an electronic document identical as the construction blueprint set and it cannot be opened in design softwares (such as AutoCad) but only through ADOBE ACROBAT.
The house plan is provided on its original size which is either 18" x 24" or 24" x 36", depending on the size of the house. It comes with a license allowing you to modify the chosen house, to build only *one (1) house from it, and to print as much as fifteen (15) copies of your plan for your personnal use!
Please note that the purchase of a PDF file format (original plan size) or CAD file format is necessary before any individual, designer, architect, engineer or agency can make any change to a design from the Drummond House Plans' collection.

OPTION 2: PDF file format - smaller plan size
The PDF file format - smaller plan size is an electronic document identical as the construction blueprint set but it comes in a smaller size in order to facilitate or accelerate your construction bidding process (email to contractors, etc.), and it is provided to scale. The purchase of a full set of blueprints is necessary to acquire the "PDF file format - smaller plan size", since this plan option doesn't allow you to build your home from it. It can only be opened through ADOBE ACROBAT.
CAD File Format
The CAD file format is the electronic version of a house plan that contains all of the same information as a construction blueprint set. It can be opened in most professional design programs such as AutoCad, allowing you to modify the chosen house. It comes with a license allowing you to build only *one (1) house.
