Maine Land On A Lake, Building On A Waterfront Lot, Shoreland Zoning.

Real Estate Agent with MOOERS REALTY ME Broker License 106759

You are toying with buying Maine land on a lake, building on a waterfront lot so tell me about maine baxter park photoshoreland zoning.


Is the lot build-able means will it pass a soil test, septic system design to accommodate what you have in mind to construct on the lot?

A soil test with a HHE 200 site plan will layout the design, determine if you need a pump to reach a leach field or not.

And the leach field is designed to handle 90 gallons of per day per bedroom.

Many folks think the number of bathrooms determines the size, type of the required state approved leach field and septic system, for sewerage disposal.

No, it's the bedroom count. And while we are at it, what is the minimum lot size for building in Maine?

Without more land being bought for a leach field across the road to make more room.

With the side lines and set back from the roadway.

And the at least 100 feet from the Maine lake all happen in the puzzle piecing together your building lot for new construction?

Find out before you buy the Maine waterfront land and learn about those pesky development rules, regulations, costs.

And when you get the septic system design back outlined on the maine lake kayaker photofour page HHE 200 site plan, why not make you sale contingent upon the cost of this design.

Maine is very protective of their waterfront natural resources and as kids we are taught to be good stewards of the air, land, water, resources.

To pass the property on the water in Maine, our woodlots, any real estate down to the next generation.

In as good or better condition than we received it the Maine land.

And whatever natural features it possesses to protect, preserved, pass on.

Land, it is a privilege, not a right to own and comes with build in respect if you want to fit in to the Maine natural landscape.

Great information Andrew, there is so much involved one needs a true professional like Andrew Mooers. I never knew much about the ins and outs of septic systems.

Lynn ... Protect the resource or you lose it. Simple Maine logic.

Noah ... We try!

L Times Two ... Glad you stopped in. Have another piece of Maine blueberry pie. More coffee?

Regina ... I have an unfair advantage with all this eye candy and low low prices. When you get the word out, it becomes kid in the candy store exciting for out of state, out of country real estate buyers used to sticker shock where they live. It goes the other way, everything you know aboiut prices, divide by three, four!
