Home Additions often increase the value of a property, and could also serve as a secondary dwell unit that creates income for the owner. If you are thinking about an addition to your property, the list below can help you prepare the right documentation for your application permit.
STEP 1: Plat Plan/ Survey Plan
All homeowners are provided with a plat plan at the time of acquiring their home. Ask your surveyor company to included the impervious coverage calculations. If you are aware of any additions not shown on your survey plan, ask the surveyor to updated your survey to the latest conditions of your home.
