We are so thankful for this board! It has been a valuable asset to us for a very long time now - since September, 2004. We are very happy to finally get started building.

Does anyone have any good resources for finding land in East King County?

What things should I be looking for in a lot and what are some common pitfalls?

Any resources or books to recommend would be much appreciated

Hi Kevin,

Here are some things you should look out for:

1) Does the property have city water, power and sewer? If no sewer, what kind of septic design is needed?  Remember, every well you dig, every septic system you install...etc. will hit your construction budget.

2) Does the property need a Geotechnical investigation report? Are there wetlands? If so, what is it classified as?  Remember, if you have to "move" wetlands, there is a good chance you have to contact the Army Corps of Engineers and they will take a few years and lots of $$$...

3) What are the impact/mitigation fees for the property? Any easements? What are the setbacks for building on the property? Any height restrictions??

Hope this helps.  Check out my model home under construction (2,300 sq ft house framed and sided within 5 days after foundation) at "My Construction Website".

Thanks! Tod

Hi Kevin,

SpecHomesMadeEasy (spechomesmadeeasy.com) took care of the framing up to the roof fully sheathed.

Did you close on a property, yet?

Tod
