About our Featured House Plans & Featured Home Floor Plans...
The House Plan Shop is currently featuring a collection of Beach House Plans, Coastal Home Plans and Waterfront House Plans all designed for a comfortable lifestyle by the water’s edge. These home plans are suitable for many types of waterfront living ranging from inland bodies of water such as rivers and lakes to oceanfront property. Beach, coastal and waterfront house plans can be one or more levels and range in size. They are available in a variety of architectural styles including simple fishing cabins and luxury beach homes. Most coastal homes blend well with their natural surroundings and are designed to encourage the enjoyment of nature, surrounding landscape and scenery. Beach house plans and Waterfront homes share some commonalities with Vacation house plans, Cabins and even some Mountain home plans.
Waterfront house plans, beach houses and coastal homes typically include features such as large windows, decks and porches all situated to capture the sights and sounds of nearby bodies of water whether it is waves crashing on the beach or a babbling stream deep in a peaceful valley. There are many types of homes suitable for shorelines and the water’s edge. Many are well adapted for sloping lots and are often designed with a daylight or walkout basement and most offer an array of windows looking out over beautiful waterfront scenery. Coastal house plans, beach houses and stilt homes create another group of waterfront homes. They are built on a pier foundation raising the living areas one level with the parking area usually positioned under the home. This type of design accommodates potential rising waters without risking damage to the home. Whether you are looking for a vacation home, weekend getaways or permanent residence, coastal and shoreline house plans offer something for everyone.
