Are drawings required and do they need to be drawn by an architect or engineer?
Yes. Drawings are required and must be signed and sealed by an architect or engineer, or you may also use high wind standards (FBC-R 301.1.1). If you choose this method, we suggest you meet with the building official prior to submitting your plans.
