Hi All, Just wondering how people have gone about pegging their house site on acreage. We have a 10 acre block and are due to sign with a large volume builder. The salesman has asked for a site location on a map. They have $500 built into quote for survey and pegging, I was going to get a surveyor to peg the site for me and give the drawing to the salesman this is $700. I have heard of people putting on the site plan "site to be pegged by owner, house on broad acreage" As we all know things are all adding up, and the $700 would be better in my pocket at this stage. I am thinking of using a 50 mt rope that I have measured with a tape measure to get a close approximation and pegging where we want it, has any one done this? My thoughts were they will have a surveyor come out for the site location any way for engineering drawings etc so no point having it done twice? Thanks, any input appreciated.
Thanks for the reply guy's. The trouble is we have a lot of large trees, and an existing dwelling we are trying to slot it in against. Trying to keep as many trees as possible but be far enough away to not incur additional costs for footings. I have found nearmap to be very accurate, when I run the rope out. I even used a print out of near map, then traced it onto plan with a glass coffee table and lamp. I guess I don't want an error on my drawing if this is used for exact location, I want to tell them where it will go rather than them turn up and tell me that my pegs are in the wrong place. Thanks again.
