Most architectural companies have a template of blueprints they reuse for every project.

As an owner-builder, I need to make these blueprints from scratch

On page 1, I have to list all applicable 2020 Residential Building codes for California

Where can I find a summary list of applicable building codes I can put on the first page

Thank you,

The same Building Department that you eventually submit your plans to.

In California other than very small single story additions, you find it more practical to contract a professional.

Any addition to second floor requires a complete structure upgrade.

Any addition in a hillside site requires a complete geology/soils report.

I would start from the planning department, they are trained to walk you through the process.

  • $\begingroup$ Ok that doesn't answer my question, I've built houses before. I know what Im doing. I just need the list summary of applicable building codes to put on paper, because I cannot put them all on paper $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Mich: Welcome to Engineering. One question: if you've built houses before, you should already have access to and knowledge of such codes. What did you do last time? $\endgroup$

Can pick sections from this text document and paste into plans
