Building a New Home

Welcome to Pine Lake, the little city that continues to set a big example.

Our residential building code reflects the standards set by previous builders and the lessons learned from living in such a unique environment.

Pine Lake cares about the lake, the trees, the land, and our neighbors and our ordinances reflect these values.  Our lake is one of the cleanest urban lakes in Georgia and we are the first city in the state to require visitability standards.  In other words, a house constructed in our city becomes a home before the first nail is hammered.

The first steps:

Review the Pine Lake Zoning Code.

Request a courtesy consultation with the ARB during one of its twice-a-month meetings to clarify all questions and concerns.  You can also contact our city manager for further clarification.  We’re here to provide guidance so feel free to ask!
