Consider specialized lakefront house plans

lakefront house planThinking of building a second home? If you enjoy the prospect of peaceful living by the waterside, consider lakefront house plans from The House Plan Shop. These floor plans have been specifically designed for living near water. They can maximize the ability to enjoy natural beauty from inside and outside the house. In fact, it is not uncommon for the exteriors of lakefront homes to blend in with the natural surroundings. Some features that are often included in lakefront style homes to enhance the enjoyment of the surroundings include:

  • Large windows
  • Floor-to-ceiling windows
  • Large decks
  • Balconies
  • Covered porches
  • Screened porches

Also, many of these designs are available with a walkout basement opening to a sloping yard that leads to the water's edge. Lakefront home plans make the most of their environment, so you can make the most of your vacation.

Lakefront home plans for recreation

lakefront home planHaving a place to get away from common stresses is a privilege, indeed. Those who can vacation in a place of their own often fill much of their time with various recreational activities. Lakefront house plans can be developed into houses that are perfect for vacation and recreation. They share similarities with beach, coastal, and other waterfront blueprints, and as such come fit with features ideal for the lakefront. Home plans in this style, for instance, may provide a comfortable ground-level exit for access the water's edge which allows for easy access to the many recreational activities that the water provides. Whether you are planning to build a dock to shelter a motorboat, or simply wish have a canoe resting along the shore, lakefront house plan options are available that provide easy access to the water's edge. Explore the possibilities for waterfront building, and discover how you can create the ideal destination for your future vacations.
