Today we’re going to talk about additions. I know we’ve all been cooped up for the last several months and so the walls feel like they’re caving in and we’re tons of calls about adding space to the house. So, some things to keep in mind when you’re anticipating an addition. First and foremost, you’re going to need a plat of survey. Every architect needs that plat of survey. You should’ve gotten it when you closed on your house and that tells us what your lot line is and what your setbacks are. So, your lot line is your property. The setbacks tell us how close to that property line we can build a structure. There are other things we have to keep in mind when planning the addition. One is called an FAR, floor area ratio. That tells us how much house can fit on your particular lot. The other thing you have to keep in mind and you do need architects for this kind of information is a non-permeable surface calculation and that really refers to your dry ways, your sidewalks and your patios. So, lots to keep in mind. Get your plat of survey ready and understand what your setbacks are. Again, the architect can help with this. There’s something called the FAR, how big of house fits on your lot, how big of an addition can we build on your lot and then that non-permeable surface calculation. So, lots to keep in mind but we’ve got it handled for you.
