Custom Homebuilding Phase 5: Drafting & Permits
Now that you’ve finished your construction drawings and finalized your financing, it’s almost time to break ground on your custom home. But before you can get started we will need to complete drafting drawings and prepare and submit all necessary permit applications. Over the next few weeks you’ll meet with your construction team multiple times to complete drafting drawings and learn about the necessary permits for your particular plot of land.
Meet With Your Drafting Team
You’ve already finalized your home design, elevation, and have chosen the majority of your finishes. But the drafting drawings contain other information that will be needed to secure your necessary permits. Your drafting drawings will contain much more than the design of your custom home. They will also contain detailed technical information about your structure, and all plumbing and mechanical information. This includes materials used for structural integrity, the placement of your electrical box and water heater, water service location and site plan and grading, HVAC duct system layout, and much more. Your drafting team will complete your home drafting drawings in compliance will all building codes and environmental laws and then you’ll have the opportunity to review, alter as necessary, and sign off on the final drafting drawings. Once you’ve signed off on the final drafting drawings we will begin the process of securing all necessary permits to complete construction.
Permit Preparation & Submission
Certain permits will be needed for site development and the building of your new custom home. Together with our team we will prepare a permit application package for submission to the city. Permit approval can take weeks, so the sooner we submit our applications the sooner we can break ground.
