All Behm Design garage plans offered as paper plans are available as PDF files. Be sure to save the file within 48 hours, as it will vanish after that time. Saving it means you will have it and can use it forever with no copying limits. The paper plans we sell are on 18″ x 24″ bond paper and the architectural scale of 1/4 inch = 1 foot is used on the major views. When printing from the PDF make sure the printer knows it is pre-set to print on the 18″ x 24″ paper size. Businesses like Staples, Fedex-Kinko-Office and blueprinting shops have the larger format printers needed to print on larger paper sheets. The PDF you receive is a multi-page document and will be collated into sets as it prints.
Most home computer printers can automatically reduce to fit the PDF document onto 8.5 x 11 paper. The scale reduction voids the architectural scale and can diminish legibility in some places. However, a smaller-sized plan set is a convenience for easy reference.
The PDFs are also easily emailed to print shops, contractors, suppliers and even the building department, as some prefer that format for permit plan review. The PDF file can also be edited graphically using software such as Adobe Acrobat Pro. It creates a new layer for block-outs, lettering, lines, bubbles, clouds, etc. and in various line weights and colors. Added information then stays with the file to print together with the original.
