Canadian House Plans from Leading Canadian Residential Designers – The House Plan Shop

Canadian House Plan 027H-0047Our customers often ask if we offer Canadian house plans. The answer is YES! The House Plan Shop offers home design collections from two Canadian, residential designers. These collections include single-family homes, multi-family homes, a small group of carriage house plans, and even a log home. Just like the house plans drawn by our US designers, those drawn by our Canadian designers are designed to meet national building codes. We do not guarantee these plans will meet all provincial building codes and they are not engineered. It will be up to you, the homeowner, or your builder, to hire a local design professional to review the plans and add any notes or make any necessary changes to meet specific provincial codes. Likewise, if you are required to have your house plans engineered in order to get building permits, it will be up to you or your builder to hire a local engineer to review the plans and seal or stamp them.
