Before any building can begin, your lot must be cleared. We opted out of the FEMA/Corps of Engineers service, and together with our 2 neighbors hired a private contractor for the job, IMX. They started work Monday, December 18. We finally had our Certificate of Completion and clear soils testing report by January 11. Our lot took the longest to clear, we found out we had an amazingly huge foundation – probably would have survived an earthquake with no problem! I really wanted to sit in the excavator and my wish came true!
