Beach House Plans for sunny coastal living

Beach House PlanIf you're planning to build beach house plans, you want to make sure that you higher a builder or contractor who has a solid reputation and experience in building beachfront homes. This is because costal house plans are often built on waterfront lots, and the building codes that apply to waterfront homes are different than those that apply to homes that are completely surrounded by land.

After you've chosen your beachfront lot, browse through our collection of beach house plans. The House Plan Shop has many designs that are pefect for coastal living. We only place top-selling designs on our Web site, which means you won't have to page through hundreds of plans that aren't great.

Tips for selecting coastal house plans

Coastal House Plan When choosing your coastal house plans, you'll want to first research the lot that you'll be building on because it's important that you understand the dimensions of the lot and any special building requirements that it demands, such as a pier foundation. If you have a particularly narrow lot, then you'll want to view our selection of narrow lot plans. Once you've done your homework you will have a good idea of what plans to purchase, and if need be, modify to your liking.

General features that people desire in waterfront house plans are:

  • wraparound porches
  • main floor master bedrooms
  • decks on the view side of your lot
  • easy-to-open sliding glass doors
  • exterior materials that weather well
  • closet space for water and fishing oriented items
  • A frame roofs for areas that experience snowfall

Seasonal endurance: A frame house plans

If you want to build a waterfront house in an area that sees a lot of snowfall in the winter months, then A frame house plans may be pefect for you. A frame homes are designed to endure all types of seasonal changes. Warm in the summer, heavy snowfall in the winter? No problem. These homes are designed with the thought of enjoying warm summer weather, with features including wrap around decks for sunbathing, yet they are also equipped to withstand heavy snowfall. Known for having a steep roof pitch, A frame's cause snow to fall to the ground in order to keep your roof from seeing water damage.

Because of their weather versatility, you can find A frame house plans on lakefront properties, tucked away in the mountains, and soaking up some rays on the beach.
