Be sure to check with the municipality that you intend to build your home to see if there are any restrictions on the type of home you can build. Some development sites are subject to specific building schemes. Hire a realtor! They can guide you through the purchasing phase and help you find the best lot for your home. You will also need a lawyer to finalize the transaction.

If you live in a seismic zone you will have to submit your plans to an engineer to be looked over. They will make notes on the plan if any specific areas need extra support or bracing. The design and size of the house can also be a factor as to whether you will require an engineer. Long floor spans and tall walls with lots of windows will likely need approval by an engineer.
