Due to regional differences, local availability of materials, methods of installation, local codes and individual preferences, it is not possible to include much detail in regards to heating, plumbing and electrical work on any house. The duct work, venting and other details vary dependant on the type of cooling and heating system employed (hot water, electric, solar, forced air, etc.) as well as the type of energy (Solar, gas, electric, oil, etc.) utilized. These specifications can be readily obtained from your builder/contractor and/or local suppliers.
In some regions, there is another step you will need to take to insure your house plans are in compliance with local codes. Some areas of North America have very strict engineering requirements. Examples of this would be earthquake-prone areas of California and the Pacific Coast, hurricane risk areas of the Florida, Gulf & Carolina Coasts. New York, New Jersey, Nevada, and parts of Illinois require review by a local professional as well. If you are building in these areas, it is most likely you will need to hire a state licensed structural engineer to analyze the design and provide additional drawings and calculations required by your building department. If you aren't sure, building departments typically have a handout they will give you listing all of the items they require to submit for and obtain a building permit.
Additionally, stock plans do not have a professional stamp attached. If your building department requires one, they will likely only accept a stamp from a professional licensed in the state where you plan to build. In this case, you will need to take your house plans to a local engineer or architect for review and stamping.
