The Build On Your Lot
Before We Get Started
One of the most important steps before we get started is to procure a full survey that was conducted after February 2022. This will show the most recent update to the proper elevation if located within a flood zone. It should also include property lines, setbacks, tree and TOPO information and any utilities noted in or around the property. Next, we would want to know what utilities are available to the property such as water, sewer or natural gas.
