Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
How can I obtain the original plans for my house?

ANSWER:
State law only requires the County to keep commercial and some multi-family structural plans. The Department therefore only keeps single family residential plans during construction and discards them 90 days after completion of the work. The space required to store all the plans of every house built in the County makes it prohibitive to keep them.
Your best hope to find the as-built plans for any structure is to contact the builder, designer, and/or engineer.
