Order Form Cheat Sheet

You have chosen your custom Site Plan and are ready for the next step. Congratulations! Here is a Step by Step guide to our order forms.

1. Required Information


In order to process your site plan, we will need at least the address for the property.    Don't have an address? Thats ok! We can go off of the parcel number of your property.

2. What is "Add a Non-Existing Structure"


Many projects include the addition of a feature or structure to the existing property. This can be anything from a fence to a shed or deck to a new septic tank. If your plan will need to have any feature drawn in by our drafters, you will need to choose the appropriate number of features and add it to your order. 

3. What are "Topographical lines"?

These are contour lines that will show elevations on your property. We use USGS available topography which is available in 2-5 foot intervals. To learn more about topography, please check out our blog article here What is Topography.

4.Providing Additional Information


      This is a very important section of your order form. From the time you submit your order, you will assigned a designer with whom you will stay in contact with if you need any updates or revisions on your order. It is important that you include as much information about your project in this section so that the designer has as clear of a picture as possible to draft your plan accurately the first time. Don't hesitate to include any drawings, files, existing surveys to your order. It doesn't have to be anything fancy. We don't discriminate!

5.  Size, Rescale Fee & File Type & Vicinity Map



    Size and Rescale- All of our site plans are formatted to be printed on 11"X17" paper. This is the default size of most cities. Home printers generally only print 8 1/2" X 11" which does not leave enough room on the site plan for city stamps and notes.
Occasionally municipalities will request other sizes which fall outside of our standard template. We can format the plan for any size paper but need to scale it appropriately.
You will have the option to rescale to your size at checkout. Just select "Yes" and give us the size you would like. If you would like to know more about scale click here Scale:What it is and Why it is important for your siteplan.


File Type- All site plans are delivered in a PDF format which is the most universally accepted printing format. During checkout you will also have an option to order the DWG file which is the AutoCAD source file. If you select this option we will zip that file and send it to you as well.

Vicinity Map-A vicinity map is a small map in the upper corner of the site plan that shows the subject property relative to the surrounding area.
