What's necessary for plan approvals?

Recommended Posts

What information is necessary for plan approvals re: building permits and info for the tradesmen? A floor plan, elevations for all sides, etc. Where could I find and show the construction details like footings, poured walls, cross section of the walls etc.?

Have a look on your City / County's  website it vary's as to what is needed but they usually specify what is needed for Permit Applications. but usually something along the lines of :


Site Plan ( include site coverage)

Survey Plan  ?

Drainage plan ( maybe on site plan) ? 

Floor Plan ( per Floor)   ( may need existing and proposed)

Roof Plan

Framing Plan


Cross Section

Typical construction Details   (eg section thru wall foundation to roof)

Structural Engineers Drawing  ( you need a Pro for your State for this)
