This Yankee Barn Home, dubbed the Charleston Cottage, was designed to look charming while being able to withstand hurricane force winds and heavy coastal flooding. This southern colonial post and beam home was expertly designed by the our in house design team not only to blend with the surrounding architecture of the neighborhood, but to meet/exceed today’s demanding coastal building codes on the South Carolina Intercoastal Waterway. This house could be built on pilings in flood zones to further protect your investment from the storm.
The owners of this home opted to forgo a cathedral ceiling “great room” in order to maximize living space on the second story. As shown, this coastal living house plan provides 2,452 square foot of post and beam living space, 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.
