If you're looking for beautiful ocean-front home plans or rustic lakefront layouts layouts for vacation or retirement, you've come to the right collection! Whether you want to build a small bungalow or a multi-level waterfront cottage, you're sure to discover a beach house plan you love below.
What's the most important factor of beach house floor plans? You guessed it--outdoor living! In the collection below, you'll see many coastal home plans that sport lanais, verandas, porches, and patios which help to create opportunities for indoor-outdoor living and relaxed entertaining. Many of these beach house designs include walkout basements so that you can expand on the lower level. Since building next to water necessitates special materials that can withstand salty air and corrosive conditions, our house plan customization services can help you modify your beach house design to meet any local building regulations or restrictions. Note: some designs in this coastal home plans collection (especially the Low Country or Tidewater styles) include pier foundations.
*This collection may include a variety of plans from designers in the region, designs that have sold there, or ones that simply remind us of the area in their styling. Please note that some locations may require specific engineering and/or local code adoptions. Be sure to check with your contractor or local building authority to see what is required for your area.
