When you start shopping for your house plan, it’s important to inquire if you need to buy your lot first. Each municipality has its own setback requirements, which is how far your house must be from the street or place that needs protection. Specific neighborhoods have their own requirements to meet too. If you already know the neighborhood you want to live in or the house plan you want to buy, it’s smart to buy the house lot first. If you do find a house plan that doesn’t quite match your desired lot, you can always modify your plan with us to meet the necessary requirements.
