Hello,

I wanted to know if there is a plano city law that restricts any builder to construct 2 houses of the same model next to each other?

Any inputs would be appreciated.

Not so much a Plano or City law but would be by the Developer, Builder and HOA restrictions.

Usually you can only build the same plan every 4-6 houses, even then they may require a different front elevation.
Nobody wants a community where every house looks the same.

That is more than likely what they are doing is different elevations.

That sure would be fun to do phase inspections on both homes just to see if the subs are being consistent or not?

escanlan is correct from what I have seen they will do different elevations close together but it depends on developer/builder as previously stated.

For instance where I am building they can't have them directly next to each other no matter elevation and they can be one house away if elevation is different and 4 houses away if same elevation.

In my new neighborhood in Prosper, the house next door is the same but different elevation, and the house 3 down from us is the same elevation but the floor plan is the mirror image of ours.

Same floor plan, different elevation = ACCEPTED for 2 houses next to each other
Same floor plan, same elevation = UNACCEPTED for 2 houses next to each other

In Frisco in our subdivision our neighbor wanted the same elevation as us one house down and the builder wouldnt do it. You cant have the same brick as well. We upgraded our elevation and so the new neighbors had to go with the regular elevation. Same floor plan and all. It was mainly a builder thing than a city thing for us.
