Low Country and Tidewater Style Home Plans
Find your dream low country house plan on Homeplans.com!*
Built in coastal areas of the South, these homes were designed for hot, humid climates. Tidewater homes have extensive porches sheltered by a broad gable or hipped roof. The main roof may extend over the porches without interruption. A crawlspace foundation allows for air circulation and protects the home from low-level flooding.
- Gable or hip roof, sometimes metal
- Deep, wraparound porches
- Dormer windows
