Beach house plans, like the ones in this collection, are designed to be located on a beach, lakefront, coast, or any area with lots of water views. Beach house plans are typically contemporary or modern with open spaces to capture views. The beach is a beautiful place to relax. There is the sun and the sound of the ocean, but it is even more relaxing when you don’t have to worry about leaving.
Although some beach house plans are raised up on pilings, many are conventional in construction. One common feature you will find in all beach houses is a wall or window facing the water and many rooms sharing that view. Since these homes are leisure homes they are usually informal in design, with the emphasis on rest and relaxation.
