Designed to make the most of the natural environment around the home, house plans with outdoor living areas often include large patios, decks, lanais, or covered porches.

When building a home, the outdoor space can be just as important as the indoor. If you enjoy outdoor entertaining and spending time outside, we’ve got plans with square footage dedicated to this space.

 

Benefits of House Plans with Outdoor Living Space

Whether it’s lounging by a pool or preparing a summer meal on the grill, these homes make it easy to spend time in your own backyard. Depending on your wants, here are some features common to outdoor living floor plans:

  • Full outdoor kitchens with dedicated cooktops and built-in grills
  • Raised decks, screened porches or covered patios that offer shade and protection during the warmer months
  • Wraparound porches that offer sitting areas on different sides of the home
  • Extra space that can be used to build a pool, a backyard living room, or anything else

One of the key advantages of these homes is the seamless flow between the interior and the exterior areas. These homes frequently include an open floor plan area inside, and use sliding glass doors to extend the flow right into the outdoor space. This setup can make the inside feel significantly larger, as well as make the outside area feel as if it’s an extension of the main living space. This gives a true indoor outdoor living feel.

These plans are available in a wide variety of modern and classic styles as well as a wide range of sizes, so you’re sure to find the best fit for your taste. Whether you’re looking for a vacation home or a forever home, take advantage of your outdoor space by choosing a plan that truly embraces its surroundings.
