The Secret to the Best Vacation Homes
While many sites and “experts” push you to buy your home plan first and without much research, we actually encourage the opposite. You heard that right… We want you to wait before buying a house plan from us! Why is that? Well, whether you’re looking at the best vacation homes or you want a year-round dwelling, knowing your lot conditions is the most important thing. It is so much easier to fit a home to a lot than it is the other way around!
This rule is especially true when it comes to building a vacation getaway. Many lots in desirable places are limited in size or present unique challenges. It probably goes without saying, but a beachfront build is going to call for different things than a mountainside cabin. Knowing what your lot offers is what makes this process so fun—finding that perfect plan that not only embraces but highlights the special features of your vacation destination makes every day spent there a dream. And finding suitable home plans is easier than you might think!
Don’t be afraid of a sloped or recessed lot. Embrace the challenge of a narrow space. Feel free to explore the possibilities even if you’re building in the middle of rural acreage, because the conditions of the exact place you intend to build make all the difference. No matter your lot’s features, our team and our home plan collections are ready to tackle everything! While others shy away from unique lots or struggle to fit the plans they paid for onto the lots they bought after the fact, you can rest easy knowing that you did things the right way. It will pay off in the long run!

This is the first question you should ask yourself when shopping the best vacation homes. Do you want an oasis for your family to head to every weekend?
