What is an Electronic PDF?

Electronic PDF

A PDF file or Portable Document File, is an industry standard digital file template not too different from a word document file. Created by Adobe and coming with a free reader program, it’s a robust file format that can compose both vector and bitmap data that is highly searchable, easy to control and very simple to distribute over email.

What size of garage plans & blueprints will I receive?

Blueprint Sizes

With the exception of our largest garage plans & blueprints sets, all our plotted blueprints are 22″x34″ or ANSI D size sheets. This has the added benefit of printing at 50% scale on 11″x17″ or a Tabloid sheet in the case that you order reduced sets or our electronic PDF file.

Can I make photocopies of the plans myself?


All blueprint purchases come with a limited-use license, giving the plan owner the right to use the included hard-copy blueprint sets for the purposes of permitting and construction but not for reproduction.

How do I go about making some small changes to a plan?

Making Changes

For those of you wanting to make changes to the garage plans or blueprints, purchase the PDF file upgrade. Your CAD file(s) purchase includes a copyright release certificate. This will allow your designer to legally make changes to the copyrighted plans for one single project.

Upon completion of your purchase, our support team will email you your certificate, along with instructions on how to designate your designer, collect their details and forward the licensing agreement. Once we have received the signed agreement, the CAD file(s) will then be emailed to you. If you or your designer has any questions about this process please contact us, we’re always here to help!

What's your return policy?

Satisfaction Guarantee

Due to the nature of the products beings sold and the ability for them to be easily copied or reproduced, we cannot be assured of fairness and as such do not offer returns or refunds directly. We do offer a 30 day satisfaction guarantee, click here for all the details.

Can I buy additional print sets after my original purchase?

Additional Prints

We always recommend checking with your local municipality for their specific requirements before you make your purchase, as they do vary from city to city.

If you require additional sets after your purchase we’re happy to send them to you. Adaptive House Plans & Blueprints will only charge the difference as well as exact shipping costs. Please contact us directly for this order.
