Sunbelt House Plans
About Sunbelt House Plans & Sunbelt Home Floor Plans...
As their name suggests, Sunbelt house plans are designed for warmer climates. They are typically found in America’s Sunbelt region – Florida, California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, but they can be built almost anywhere. Sunbelt home plans are most easily recognized for their stucco exteriors and clay or tile roofs. In most cases, concrete block walls are finished with stucco and painted white or another pastel color. The red clay tile roof delivers a striking contrast to the light colored walls and holds up extremely well under tremendous heat. Additionally, low-pitched roofline and exaggerated overhangs provide much needed shade around the perimeter of Sunbelt house plans. This helps keep the interior cool. Sunbelt house plans can be one or two levels, and they are closely related to Mediterranean home plans and European designs. Most are built on slab foundations.
