What city are your planning to build your home in? I would suggest talking to both the city and the builder.

You need to check with the city in which you plan to build.

It will depends on the sub division you are in.

I would be more than happy to check to see what is the limit of a new built home for you. You can email me at

Much depends on your specifications for a home, builder, and city restrictions

Of course you can. Do you know how big an acre is?

In theory it's easy. Things like topography and deed/pud ristrictions can get in the way of implementing what you might want, though.

As Elizabeth noted, consulting an architect or a builder that has worked in the subdivision/area of interest would be best.

You can build a house on a 20,000 sq ft lot. Have you talked with an architect or builder?

Absolutely! I have a client who just built his 6100 sqft dream home on a 16,000 sqft lot in Preston Hollow and he has tons of room for backyard entertainment, pool, circle driveway etc.
