"..Built the garage this spring and it turned out fantastic. Building codes here are rather strict, but the inspector did not find a single flaw in design or construction. I love the design and my new shop/garage." -Gerald M.
Garage Plans Guarantee
by Jay Behm -Behm Design guarantees your satisfaction with our garage plans and they may be returned for refund according to our RETURN POLICY. Additionally, Behm Design guarantees all garage plans acceptable by your building department for successful building permit review/approval, within the design parameters listed below, for the use intended, within the scope of information provided.
We design our garage plans to be useable in most US locations and not for areas with extreme environmental conditions (except for the Washington state category "D" plans which are IRC compliant ). Note: The International Residential Code is the basis for most US states' building codes. Complying with the IRC is, in most cases, complying with your state's building code.
- International Residential Code (IRC) Compliance
- Assumed maximum 100 mph wind, 3 second gust
(note: a few of the older plans were designed for 85 mph wind)
- Assumed moderate wind exposure "B"
- Most designs prescriptively code compliant
- Assumed basically flat building site
- Assumed stable, durable soil conditions
- Assumed maximum seismic category C risk
- Maximum 30 #/sf snow load
Exceptions: Our Guarantee does not apply in the following circumstance
- Topography, substandard soils, or drainage problems require design modifications
- Snow, wind, seismic conditions require structural and drawing modifications
- If garage plans have been modified in any way
- If state requires compliance with a state-specific energy code (such data may be added as required)
- Where local building authority requires professional stamp or seal of submitted plans (most do not but you should verify)
Behm design will provide immediate clarification or correction, if needed, for the garage plans, within the scope of information presented. The plans may be returned for a full refund if they do not meet our guarantee, as stated, within 1 year of purchase date. Behm Design shall be liable for no more than the original purchase price of the plans provided.
Important Notes for Our CustomersIt is important, before ordering garage plans, to check with your local Building Official and Zoning Dept. for requirements and restrictions regarding permit submittal for your proposed construction. You will need a site plan and, possibly, other information, in addition to the garage plan, for getting a building permit. Some states and localities may require the professional review and stamp of a licensed Engineer or Architect for all work drawings. California, Florida, New York, Washington and other coastal states may have beyond "normal" requirements for wind, seismic and snow conditions. Check with your local Building Official for local requirements.
Call Jay @ 1-800-210-6776 if you have questions regarding this guarantee.
Our garage plans packages and PDF downloads are sold for one (1) construction use only. Repetitive use of the plans is prohibited under current copyright laws unless specific written permission is provided by Behm Design.
Please check all relevant dimensions before ordering Garage Plans. It is also recommended that building permit be obtained before commencing with any construction activities, including foundation.

Hi Jay -
Attached is a photo of my garage (#856-1), which turned out great. The garage plans were thorough and made approval in my city and county (which has a strict set of design standards) much easier....Thank you.... M. C., OH
Jay, I meant to tell you much earlier what a great value your garage plans are. This garage was constructed late fall of '09. I was at the house the other day and it happened to be one of those perfect coastal New England summer days. The garage looked great. .........Thank you, J.W.
Jay, your garage plans were right on the money. I was able to get an accurate quote and was able to check up on the contractor to make sure it was being built by the specs. The low cost spent on the garage plans made whole project go smoother. No potential disagreements. Every time there was a question I would just say, “build it just like the plan says” Thanks again !
