Unless otherwise modified or supplemented by a writing signed by both Designer and Licensee, this License Agreement is the complete agreement of the parties concerning the terms and scope of the license. The parties agree that Designer is not and will not be granting any implied licenses to Plans or to the design of the buildings depicted therein.


  1. Limitation of liability:

    In recognition of the relative risks, rewards and benefits of the project to both Licensee and Designer, the risks have been allocated such that Licensee agrees that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, Designer’s total liability to Licensee for any and all injuries, claims, losses, expenses, damages or claim expenses immediately arising out of these Terms from any cause or causes, shall not exceed the amount of Designer’s total compensation paid per these Plans. Such causes include, but are not limited to, Designer’s negligence, errors, omissions, strict liability, breach of contract or breach of warranty.

  2. Severability:

    If any provision of these Terms are held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under present or future laws, such provision shall be fully severable and the Terms shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision is not a party hereof, and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. In lieu of any illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision, there shall be added automatically as a part of these Terms, a provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision as may be possible and be legal, valid and enforceable.

  3. Ownership of plans:

    The Plans and the design of the building depicted in them are the copyrighted intellectual property of Designer, and are instruments of service that are and at all times remain the property of Designer whether or not Plans or services are completed.

    Licensee represents and warrants that neither Licensee nor any party in privity with Licensee has previously made any unauthorized use of any of Designer’s plans or the design of any building depicted therein, including but not limited to creating any derivative works or beginning construction of any building based in any way on the designs depicted in the Plans. The accuracy and veracity of this representation and warranty is a strict condition precedent of the license granted by this License Agreement. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that if Licensee or any party in privity with Licensee has previously made any unauthorized use of any of Designer’s Plans or the design of any building depicted in them, this License Agreement shall be null and void, and Licensee shall has no permission whatsoever to utilize any of Designer’s Plans or other intellectual property.

  5. Scope of license:

    Strictly conditioned on payment for a license of the Plans at the prices shown on Designer’s website or as agreed upon under a separate custom design agreement, on the accuracy and veracity of the representation and warranty set forth above, and on Licensee’s full, complete, and timely performance of the other obligations set forth herein, Designer grants Licensee a nonexclusive license to construct a single dwelling unit of the design depicted in the Plans at a single, specific location (the “Project”).
