Obtaining a building permit typically requires a completed permit application, home plans and

grading plans. Once the home plans are completed, we turn our focus to the grading plans and

positioning the home on the lot.

Grading plan requirements differ according to the municipality or township but the main components are consistent.  The plans are to be designed and sealed by a civil engineer and include but are not limited to the following:

  • Current topography of the property and the proposed grades / contours of the property after construction

  • Orientation of the proposed home and driveway on the property with distances to boundary lines

  • Top of proposed foundation wall elevation

  • Total impervious coverage of property including the house, garage, porches, sidewalks and driveway

  • Water and sewer laterals or on lot septic system and well locations

  • On lot storm water management if required

  • Erosion and sediment control

  • Total area of land disturbance for the entire project


Grading plans don’t require much attention from the customer, we work together with our engineering partner and make this step more economical than most builders. We recommend starting grading plans and the permit process a minimum of 3 months prior to the desired start of construction.
