Starting to Build a New House in the country

My wife and I are lucky enough to have found a 5 acre piece of Agricultural land zoned A-1 and we will be building a new home there this summer. I will make posts as we go to keep you informed of any hick ups along the way. Our first task is to get an approach onto the land off of the municipal road in the area. I had thought that this would require application and approval by the dept. of Highways but not so for this purpose. If the approach is for a single family home, basically a driveway, then no application is required as long as this will be the only access point for the land. So if you already have an approach you cant get a second one without approval. IYou do need approval if you are putting an approach in for a subdivision of commercial ooperation. So now we are sourcing a local company to put the approach in and install a plastic culvert. Then we have to open the fence and install a gate. Ahh the start of a very interesting summer. Looking forward to it,
