Hillside House Plans & Sloping Lot Home Plans
Sloping lot house plans are needed for a rockier, or sloping lot landscape. These home plans are also commonly referred to as split-level home designs and are specifically designed for property that is either a sharp, or steady, incline. Sloping lot home designs must often be customized to match the unique features of your lot.
Hillside home floorplans often allow for such features as walkout basements, and a large balcony. The main living area is often on the second floor and because of this we usually see rear home decks and balconies as a common feature to ensure that the occupants have every opportunity to enjoy their mountainside view.
Please note that it is important to check with your local codes enforcement division, as it may be necessary to meet the local conditions that often arise in a mountainous area, such as annual snowfall. Foundation modifications are almost always required to suit your specific terrain.
Here are some common sloping lot home plan features:
- Usually built into hillside or on sloping lots.
- Typically two to two zand a half story homes.
- House plan styles will vary, as these home plans are no particular to a specific style.
- The foundation will usually need to be modified to fit the grade of your lot.
- Walkout basements, daylight basements, and drive under garages are common.
