Beach house plans or the waterfront plans are lazy; laid-back houses lying on a beach. They tend to be fused with sunshine and hence a large window suits them amply. The idea is to have a shade of the pastoral where you can lay your worries aside and spend some time in peace. It can have two storeys or a single one. Balconies and porches are a must; stretched balconies with plenty of sunshine increases the aura of watching the oscillating palm trees and horizon at a distance.
You might look for a cottage type plan or a multi-storey executive or corporate suite. People who have yacht make beach houses and people who have a little over moderate income make them too. Sun and sea and sand is still not a private territory.
You have got to understand the floor plan, acreage, construction logistic and other things before deciding on a beach house.
