SCLA has a committee that does building reviews for homeowners.  We have been doing this for about 30 years since the Jackson Company stopped their activities.  

The main things that we review for a new homeowner or builder are building lines (BL) also known as setbacks (generally 50' front and 10' side), size of the residence (It varies by section), masonry construction content (one half thereof), and roofs (if metal, it must be a color other than silver).  

Copies of the plans, and the plat, that is submitted to the SCLA Architectural Review Committee should have statements or notes from the architect or designer/builder as to the square footage of the residence and the percent of masonry construction of the main residence.  The Committee review process is not lengthy.  You will have their comments to let you know if there are any questions or concerns about your plans.

Please send an email to and we will get in touch with you.
