7 Things to Know about Beach House Plans – The House Plan Shop

Beach House Plan 017H-0032With summer fast approaching, our minds start drifting to dreams of building a beach house for our summer retreat or maybe as a permanent residence where we can enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean each day. For others, a beach house is a great place to spend long weekends with friends and family, but it can also serve as source of income if used as rental property. Below are seven things to know about beach houses that might help you decide if building a beach home is right for you:

 

  1. Designed for shoreline living with the main living areas typically raised one level above the ground to accommodate rising tides and prevent flooding. This is achieved by building on a pier foundation (or pilings).
  2. Usually, the parking area is located beneath the home and made possible by the pier foundation.
  3. Floor plans feature large, strategically placed windows to maximize the coastal or shoreline view.
  4. Floor plans incorporate large decks and porches for outdoor living space and provide an opportunity to soak up the sights and sounds of coastal living.
  5. Often feature an open floor plan to allow gentle sea breezes to flow throughout the home.
  6. Often incorporate specialized design elements, materials and construction methods to meet building requirements and specifications related to marine/coastal environments, geographic factors and regional climates.
  7. Floor plans range in size and style offering everything from a simple beach vacation bungalow to a luxurious oceanfront home.
