As we continue in overviewing the new home building process, the next step is to have an engineer create a plot plan that is used to eventually stake the home on the lot. Once the home plan is chosen, the engineer will draw the home dimensions onto the plot plan and also show the lot boundaries and dimensions. This document is very detailed and will show drainage swales, easements and all minimum setback dimensions.
This plot plan document along with the sewer permit will be a part of the application for a building permit from the local city or county codes department.
Below, please see an example plot plan and its features.
