Need help calculating lot dimensions

finallyhomeMarch 26, 2012

I've found a small triangle shaped lot that I want to buy. However, I need to determine what size house would fit.

The left side of the triangle is 36.86. The right side 52.8. The bottom of the triangle (front of house) is 75.79.

I don't want a triangle shaped house. What would be the maximum width and depth I could build not taking into count the setbacks?

The size of the lot is 887.359
If that is square feet (you did not specify any unit of measure) it is clearly not a buildable lot.

If the dimensions you provided are the construction lines:
405 square feet (27' wide x 15' deep +/-)if you want a perfect rectangle.
520 square feet if you want a litle bit of a shape (combining two rectangles).
Is this for a one car garage, casita or an tiny cottage?

Well, I was hoping to be able to put a small 2 level home above a 2 car garage. This is an infill lot in an urban area close to downtown. I only want a small 1300 - 1400 sq ft house so I am limited in the available lots. I don't want a condo or a one of the larger townhomes in the area.

Most older houses in the area are being torn down for new builds. But since the lots are going for $150K to $200K, it doesn't make financial sense to put such a small house on these lots, nevermind the fact i'm never cutting grass again. I was hoping this lot would work.
