Licensing Notices

Architectural License

HPA Design, Inc. carries architectural licenses for the following states: Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin

Massachusetts Law, as stated in the The Massachusetts State Building Code, exempts one and two family homes from construction control by the architect and so an architect's 'stamp' is not typically required. Without intimate knowledge of your site, state or local zoning and building codes, and other conditions, HPA Design, Inc. can provide neither construction control nor a licensed architect's stamp on any of our stock plan products. If your city or town requires 'stamped' plans, HPA Design, Inc. can be retained to provide such additional services. Please feel free to contact us for more information.

Construction License.

The purchase of a full set of construction plans from HPA Design, Inc. grants the purchaser a license to build that plan one time at one location. The license also grants the purchase the right to modify that plan, subject to the terms and conditions stated therein, to meet specific site, zoning, code, and/or other design needs. This license is granted solely to the purchaser and may not be transferred, assigned, sold, or leased.

Almost all the plans available for purchase on have been built one or more times and HPA Design, Inc. strives to insure that all of the plans that we sell are 'buildable' on delivery. However, due to individual conditions (i.e. site, zoning, code, etc.) we cannot make such a guarantee. For this reason HPA Design, Inc. highly recommends that the purchases have all plans reviewed by a local architect, structural engineer, and/or certified general contractor prior to commencing construction.
