TBH plans can be built as shown in most localities, and yet your local building department might have unique requirements that we cannot know: perhaps particular structural documents, soil reports, energy-efficient calculations, and yet answers to these requirements can be provided at competitive rates.
Typically, sets do not illustrate plumbing, heating, air conditioning, because local codes and climatic conditions vary, dramatically. Most often, specific local details are provided by builder, contractor, and eager, local suppliers.
* TBH house-plans conform to the building codes where originally designed.
