A beach house is one of the greatest escapes you can have. Breathtaking views, cool breezes, and your own little slice of paradise. With a project so big, there are definitely some things that you’ll want to consider before you get started. Check out some worthy considerations in custom beach house building.


Of course location can mean everything when building a new house, and this especially holds true with beach houses. You will absolutely have to consider how close you are to the water, as well as local variances and beach erosion tendencies. This should all play an important part in helping you choose a safe location for your house.

Weather Protection

When you live near the coast, you know that your house will be subjected to severe weather from time to time. Some things that you will want to consider in order to protect your home include building your house up on stilts, and installing storm windows and shutters. Keep in mind that having your house set higher up will also give you better views.

Outdoor Living Space 

When you have a beach house, you will likely be spending a lot of time outside. This is all the more reason to want to create an amazing outdoor living space to take full advantage of the beautiful views and weather. You can achieve this by adding a wraparound deck or porch, and even finishing it off with your own outdoor kitchen.
