Building Designers develop site plans in stages. They coordinate this with a civil engineers plat map and topography map. The primary role in the plat is to provide a guide of the property lines and land dimensions. This gives the building designer a frame of reference for the maximum width and depth of the home design.
Whether you use a stock house plan or go with a custom home design, a house site plan is necessary. Your local building department will require it along with your plans to obtain a house plan building permit. With home plans, your builder will likely use the services of the civil engineer to locate the house on the site. However, using a building designer to provide this service is a more desirable option.
