What is a site plan, exactly? Allow us to explain.

Building a custom home can feel like a gigantic puzzle. Fortunately, it doesn’t always have to be this way. When you work with expert home builders who have proven themselves to be among the best, then you’ll have some definite peace of mind. One step in the process that can be easy to miss is the site planning phase. What is a site plan, exactly? Allow us to explain.

Defining the Site Plan 

Site plans have another designation as plot plans. These diagrams indicate how you intend to change the property you own. Certain features of the landscape could be unusual, and that can cause delays in the project timeline if they are left unaddressed. The current disposition of the parcel (i.e., what’s there already and what you want to add) is included. Likewise, you can expect your site plan to be different from that of your neighbors. Even in the same subdivision, not all lots look alike. Thus, be sure to follow all zoning regulations at both the local and state levels.  

Discovering the Plan’s Purpose 

This document makes confirming the relevant code requirements much easier. Plus, it facilitates aligning your custom home with essential utilities and public services. Some examples include sewers, schools, roads, water lines, and emergency response. Easements complicate the process of custom home building. Still, your custom home builder partner can square them away for you easily enough.

How It Differs from a Floor Plan

At this point, you’re probably wondering what distinguishes a site plan from a conventional floor plan. The floor plan outlines the configuration of the rooms within your home. Think of it this way: it’s the “micro-level management” of the home building experience. The site plan, meanwhile, represents the “macro-level management” or bigger picture. After all, it covers everything that sits on your property – terrain features, landscaping elements, and even hardscaping structures.
