This house plan was designed to be minimally affected by rising waters in areas prone to flood.
The open concept floorplan takes advantage of panoramic rear views via abundant windows.
This house is characterized by a ground floor built of concrete walls clad with a stone veneer, providing robust piers for the main structure. Waterproof insulation, concrete walls and a metal staircase would suffer minimal damage in the event of repeat flooding.
A workshop and storage are conveniently located on the main level and a large carport could alternatively be developed as an enclosed garage if desired.
The upper level includes two good-sized bedrooms, a bathroom with soaker tub and 34"x51" independent shower, a laundry area and a mechanical/storage room.
A generous deck creates attractive seasonal recreation space with easy access to the living areas. The overall benefit is a home which is functional, attractive and subject to minimal damage in the event of flooding.
