The Homeowner’s Building Application Checklist for Constructing a Residential Addition

In order to begin construction on a home addition in Ottawa, there are several types of architectural drawings that will be required. The first is a site plan, which will show the location of the proposed addition in relation to the existing house and property lines. Next, floor plans will be needed to determine the layout of the new space. These should include all dimensions and any changes to the existing floor plan, such as relocating doorways or removing walls. Once the floor plan is approved, elevation drawings will be required to show the exterior appearance of the addition. Finally, details such as electrical and plumbing plans will need to be submitted before construction can begin. By working with a professional architect, you can be sure that all the necessary drawings and approvals will be obtained before work begins on your home addition.
