How much info do the downloadable Eplans contain? Can I actually build a house from these plans? Or give it to a contractor to build? Or do I have to talk with an architect to get the actual plans drawn? And I'm not just talking blueprints either. I mean, the dimensions so that a DIYer or builder could build it from these plans. Thanks in advance!

I love old houses, so I downloaded a few ebooks, "Cottages", "Examples of American Domestic Architecture" and "A House Plan Book of California Homes", hoping to find some plan to build my house. But all the house plans only have floor plans with one drawing of the exterior. How can I figure out the elevation and scale of the house? Thanks! Sherry
