FOOTPRINT OF A HOUSE IN RELATION TO THE BUILDING LOT:

THE TOTAL BUILDABLE AREA OF YOUR LOT is determined by subtracting the easements on all sides of the lot and determining how much space is left in the middle.  This may be a simple subtraction calculation if you have a perfectly square/rectangular lot.  If your lot is NOT square, you may need help to determine the buildable area of the lot so that you can search for the correct size home.  The good news is, the Developer' engineering company can probably answer the "Buildable Area" question in a matter of minutes because the subdivision was probably drawn on an AutoCAD-type program.  Before you spend a lot of money for calculation services, call the Engineering Company who created your PLAT.
