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.
This so called cut and fill procedure does two things. First it provides for a level ground surface area for the house location. Second, it shapes the land to slope water away from the home on all sides of the building.
