States require locally licensed architects to stamp most drawings, especially those that are of public safety concerns. However, there are exemptions from licensure state laws. These exemptions may vary by state, but often include:
“No license as an architect … shall be required … for single and two-family homes, townhouses and multifamily dwellings, excluding electrical and mechanical systems, not exceeding three stories …”
Residential: “Architects licensure Act exempts detached one-family and two-family dwellings not more than three stories in height, and their accessory buildings.”
Residential: “Detached single or 2-family dwellings, including those to be utilized for home occupations, as defined by local ordinances, and sheds, storage buildings and garages incidental to the dwellings.”
