Fire Rebuild: Design Development Process

Posted by Hogan Land Services on Nov 9, 2017 9:45:45 AM

Are you going to rebuild the house that was there before, with either limited or no alterations? Or are you going to build a completely new home that doesn’t reflect what was there before? Once you decide what you would like to build and obtain floorplans, you will need to have them stamped by a non-expired California Engineer or Architect.
