Coastal style homes

Coastal style home plans reflect a casual resort atmosphere with exteriors that recall the cottage style with pastel colored siding, white trim and standing seam metal roofs, or a Nantucket feel with grayed split shake siding and wood shake roofing, or even a Mediterranean coastal villa with golden hued stucco and terra cotta tile roofing. Most feature informal great rooms that are interconnected with bright spacious kitchens and view oriented dining spaces. Many coastal style house plans feature elevated living spaces over an island style basement that is fitted to coastal site conditions where flooding is a concern. These lower spaces may feature parking, storage and unfinished areas that can be converted into such uses as game rooms, exercise rooms, or flex rooms that can accommodate visiting grandchildren (conditional upon site zoning requirements).
