I need advice/help regarding a buildeazy plan or project

I purchased a $5.00 or Buildeazy downloadable plan and have not received it.

After making payment you will automatically be sent an email with a secure download link that will allow 3 download attempts (the limited download attempts is to stop mass distribution of the plans via email forwarding etc).
You will also be sent an email from PayPal with details of the transaction and the receipt number.
In the unlikely event you do not get the email with the download link, simply email here for HELP with your receipt number and details, but please check your spam folder first.
Likewise, email for help if you are unable to get your plans within the 3 download attempts.
Please remember when doing so, there may not necessarily be anyone at the other end to answer immediately. We might even be asleep so do be patient.

A particular plan states somewhere that it is free. So, why does the same plan cost $5.00?

Some of the plans have two versions - A free version and a downloadable pdf version for $5.00.
The free version, apart from being full of ads, cannot be printed out in one single file.
The $5 downloadable option is there simply because readers have requested it in clean, convenient copy.
If we state that there is a particular free plan in the BuildEazy website, there will be one.
For a list of all the free plans click here.
For a list of all the $5 downloadable plans click here.
Remember, there will also be a free version of the $5 downloadable plans. Some people prefer the $5.00 option in order to get a clean (free of ads, menus, etc) copy, especially if they are serious about undertaking the project.

I want some help with site navigation.

The EazyFind page should be able to point you in the right direction.

I cannot print out a particular Buildeazy free plan.

Since conception, BuildEazy has never been print-friendly. That is all about to change, as we are currently re-formatting all the pages to make them print-friendly.

To what extent may I use Buildeazy free plans?

Buildeazy plans can only be used for private and individual use as stated in the Terms of Use and Policies.
No portion is to be copied, downloaded (for any use other than stated below), retransmitted or reproduced in any form, without our express written permission.
You may print a free article or plan for your private and individual use only.

Often asked: Can I sell an item that I build from a BuildEazy plan?
A:   Yes. You can do what you like with any item made from a BuildEazy plan.
It is the plan that is copyright protected - not the item that you build from that plan.

Explain the metric and imperial measurements. The equivalents aren't the same. Why?

In projects that are in both metric and imperial, all measurements are given in feet and/or inches first, followed by millimeters (mm) in brackets (), or vice versa. The imperial sizes are not an exact match to the equivalent metric sizes. For example, a shed built using the imperial (ft and in) measurements will be approximately 1.6% larger than a shed built using the metric measurements. The imperial measurements are more suited to North America. The metric measurements are more suited to Australasia.

Can I post any Buildeazy content in my website?

Short answer, NO.
However, you may use excerpts of paragraphs to promote the buildeazy.com website or to describe links to BuildEazy plans or projects.
Refer to the link to buildeazy plans page, the Policies page and the Terms of Use for more information.

Why do some pages look different than others?

We are currently re-formatting the complete site to make the pages print-friendly and also revise and update the older projects. This is work in progress.

What is print-friendly?

It means that when you print out a page, it should just contain the plan or project data in clear order and not the rest of the irrelevant stuff that you see on the online webpage such as menus etc.
We are currently working on this site to make all project pages print-friendly.
Please note that we have no control over your printer or printer settings.

What is a pdf file

A Portable Document Format (PDF) file is a file (we'll call it a page for easy explanation) that retains it's outlay. In other words, what you see is what you get. The outlay or format of the page will stay the same no matter what printer or setting you have. It doesn't mean that you can't muck it up with overall page size, but the page layout will remain the same in comparison. If you open up a pdf file in your browser, what you see will be what you print.
You do need pdf reader in order to view the page. If it is not already installed in you computer (most computers have it onboard nowadays) you can get it for free here http://get.adobe.com/reader/ .
