Plot Plans

Chapter 8

Definition and Purpose

A plot plan is a plan view drawing which show the site and
location of the building on the property.

Definition and Purpose

Plot plan shows:


Property Lines

Property lines define the site boundaries

The length and bearing of each line must be identified on the
plot plan

Measured with an engineers scale to 1/100’

Bearing angles are recorded in degrees and minutes (seconds)

S 63


Property Lines

Property Corners

Identified with a special symbol


Where the property corner begins and ends

Contour Lines

A contour is a line connecting points which have the same

Contour lines help to describe the topography of the site by
depicting shape and elevation of the land.

Survey uses a mean sea level.

Home construction

relative elevations are sufficient.

Footings, Foundations & Concrete

Staking out house location

1. Locate each corner of the house by laying off the
distances indicated on the plot plan.

2. The position of all corners should be checked for
accuracy by diagonal measurement.

3. A control point is needed to determine the depth
of excavation and foundation wall height.


For footings and foundations the top soil is usually
removed and saved for final grading.

Excavation of footings should extend a minimum of 6
inches, into undisturbed earth.

Excavation of footings must also be extend down to a
minimum of 6 inches below the average maximum frost
penetration depth.


Remove the top soil.

Excavation must be below frost line for footing

Excavation must be large enough for work space and
foundation drains.


Increase the support capacity of the foundation wall by
spreading the load over a large area.

Footing thickness is equal to the foundation wall thickness
and footing width is twice the wall thickness.

Foundation Walls


is the most common type of foundation.

Slab foundation is an extension of a slab floor.

Pier and Post foundations serve as an auxiliary foundation to
support long spans.

Basement Walls

Basement walls are controlled by local building codes.

Beams and girders are used to support floor joist.

Lintels are a horizontal structural member that supports the
load over an opening such as a door or a window.


Concrete is a result of combining

cement, sand, aggregate
and water.

Cement is composed of a mixture of lime, silica, alumina,
iron components
