We took the first draft of the plans to the local Building and Zoning department, in our area it is the Construction Code Authority. They were great! They checked truss and rafter sizes and made suggestions for larger and smaller specs as needed. They also helped simplify the site plan which is necessary for Zoning setbacks, square footage and height requirements. The plans were tweaked, we went back to CCA and submitted everything.
We decided to stub in plumbing for a future bathroom/country canning kitchen.. We also did DIY on the plumbing. The internet is full of info, the local building center was a huge help on the design of the system, as well as the CCA plumbing inspector.
With plans submitted, we are now ready to go! See the submitted blueprint document below.
