Good points!  The good news is that floor plan is a scan of the floor plan my partner made using some "made for the amateur" design software.  Her errors of omission have been rectified by the professional up in Canada that is doing the final plans for us, based upon her early efforts.    The changes, particularly those you mention, have been minor.
Thanks for taking the time to look at the plan critically!

Subdividing the parcels should be straightforward, and I sincerely doubt a survey is needed.  But that depends on how it was originally platted.

I would check with the county and see what the parameters are for subdividing the access parcel.  It certainly seems wide enough for a driveway to my simple mind.

Good luck moving forward!

That looks nice.  Weird how more piers costs less than fewer piers!

It may just be the default floor layout graphics, but your side-to-side spacing for the toilets looks pretty tight.  If you are subject to a code authority they may want to see 15" from the centerline to adjacent fixtures.

There aren't too many ways to lay out an 8x5 bath and still meet code.  If that's an issue, in the master bath you may need to shift the toilet to the south wall and perhaps have to put the vanity there as well.

You may want more storage in the master bath as well.  You could split the pantry in half and have a linen closet in the bath.

What about putting both of the parcels (your neighbors 3 acres & your new 50' strip of land) for sale together, but not actually doing the legal work until it sells?  Then you could make some money from the future buyer without having to incur any additional costs, while still helping your neighbor. 

Good luck!

Hi Glenn,

I have been researching the possibility of making my own one story elevator and was referred here to your page...all  213 of them!!

Any how, can't find the info but assume it's here. Can you please point me in the right direction?

Thank you,
Jeff Clark

Yeah, we bought 1/2 acre from the same neighbor a few years back. Real estate is going nuts around here, so when a piece comes up for the right price, I'm all over it, especially if it connects to mine. There's another one acre parcel across the street owned by the same broker, for the same price. I'm even thinking about buying that, as it has full road frontage and is a good, buildable lot. Just not sure how much I want to buy. You still have to keep some insurance on it and pay taxes. Taxes on attached land are dirt cheap, as they become agricultural along with mine. A separate piece wouldn't be eligible. Now that I'm under contract, I'll go talk to my neighbor and see how he feels about it.

My thought with the a-frame is simplicity of build and less costs due to decreased interior area to cover with paneling and decreased exterior area to cover with siding. Would also mean less insulation costs due to 2 fewer walls. I really want to have 2 stories, or at least a lofted area.

I think I worked out the cross gable in my head, but you're right Nathan.
