Some counties require to have a plot plan in order to obtain a building permit. The plot plan shows where the house will be located on your property, so the builder would know where exactly to pour foundations. In order for us to produce a plot plan, you would need to send us your plot topography drawing or write us your plot boundary dimensions with stated setbacks. The plot plan would also show plot size, existing and new structures, set back lines, sewage disposal systems, utilities, power lines, driveway, paving, existing trees, etc.
Each customer knows better where they would like to locate lighting, switches or outlets. After you purchase the house construction drawings, if you would like to make electrical layout changes, send us your comments and we will update electrical plan for Free.
The construction drawing set must be reviewed by a local structural engineer, as of the different structural requirements in each county. Each location has different soil conditions as well as different load requirements for snow, wind, seismic, etc. For this reason structural engineer would need to specify supporting structure including beams, girders, headers, rafters/trusses, columns, etc. Also, most of the building departments require to get a local structural engineer’s stamps to obtain a building permit. After the engineer’s review, if there is a need to update the construction drawing set according to engineer's structural specifications, we will update the drawings for Free and will issue an updated drawing set.
