November 19, 2014 - During the building process of your new home floor plans, the construction of your new house is certain to run into some minor obstacles to meet with local building codes and zoning laws. Make sure you know how your lot location will affect your home with help from the latest slideshow from Donald A. Gardner Architects, "Understanding Local Building Codes and Zoning."

The key to understanding how these regional regulations will affect your building process is to understand the difference between the two. Zoning codes regulate how a given section of land can be used and the type of structures that can be built. When it comes to house construction, the zoning codes in your town will play a part in where your driveway, garage, backyard fence and more may be placed.

Receiving your zoning permit is often the first step in any property development project. Work with your builder to make sure your home construction project is in compliance with local zoning laws. To learn more about your area's local zoning laws, contact your city or county clerk's office for a copy of your local zoning codes.

After you have clearance from your city or town's local zoning department, the next step in the building process is to obtain a building permit for your new home floor plans. These codes are designed to help ensure the safety and accessibility of your new home according to the International Building Code.

Building Codes help establish a set of quality guidelines for any new building project, making sure that your home is constructed to ensure a high standard of living and safety. During the building process, your builder or architect will rework your home plan to comply with the building codes in your area. When your home blueprint is in compliance with your town's building codes, the construction phase of your home floor plan can begin.

Make sure your new home is safe and a good fit for your new community. Learn more about local building codes and zoning by viewing the slideshow from Donald A. Gardner Architects at
