Can I purchase more than one parcel to build a larger home?
Yes, you may purchase more than one parcel to build a larger home, as long as the parcels are contiguous (adjoining).

You may use the combined total square footage of all parcels if you purchase multiple parcels in calculating the dwelling size as long as the parcels are contiguous (adjoining). For example, if you purchase three contiguous residential parcels, each having 10,000 square feet, the calculation is as follows:
Parcel 1 - 10,000 square feet
Parcel 2 - 10,000 square feet
Parcel 3 - 10,000 square feet
Total area 30,000 square feet
X .25 (25 percent)...
The maximum total dwelling size permitted is 7,500 square feet.
