  • Assignment: Create a Site Plot Plan of where you live. Do the best of your ability.
    Rough estimate on any dimensions and features.

    Tools to use: Pencil, Ruler, Paper

    • Draw a picture of the perimeter of your family's home property.
      Include the following:
      • House
      • Yard
      • Driveway
      • Any additional features: shed, outdoor equipment, fence, etc.
      • Trees, shrubs and other landscaping
      • If possible, plot locations or pathways of utilities. Example RGE, water, etc.


    • Step 1: Determine property boundaries. This would be completed by a licensed surveyor, but you will be guessing and estimating the perimeter. 
    • Step 2: Determine the location of all structures and other physical features to be shown on the plot plan. You will have to estimate/guess the size (not including height) of all buildings on your property as well as other important man-made structures (carport, garden shed, driveways, decks and the like). 
    • Step 3: Draw the plan. Sketch everything first, then redraw a final copy neatly.
