Build of the Month – September: “Cottage on the Canal”

Welcome to our September edition of “Build of the Month,” where we showcase exceptional beach home designs. This month, we are delighted to present the “Cottage on the Canal” plan, a stunning coastal haven perfectly situated on a canal lot near the North Carolina coastline. As a professional building designer specializing in beach homes, we take immense pride in bringing you this exquisite creation that is nearing completion and promises to be nothing short of spectacular.

A Coastal Paradise in the Making

The homeowners, along with their interior designer, have exhibited impeccable taste and foresight in every aspect of this project, from the choice of paint colors to the selection of fixtures. Their vision has given life to a beach home that radiates tranquility and charm.

A Cool Coastal Palette

To capture the essence of beachfront living, the homeowners opted for a cool color palette that harmonizes seamlessly with the coastal surroundings. Hints of soothing blue, adorning the built-in cabinets and gracing the master bedroom’s tray ceiling, serve as delightful accents. The kitchen backsplash,  glistening like ocean waves, and the sparkling light fixtures above the island elevate the space, making it the heart of this coastal retreat.

Perfectly Suited for its Setting

One of the hallmarks of the “Cottage on the Canal” plan is its remarkable synergy with the canal-side location. Large sliding doors and strategically placed windows allow for unhindered views of the serene canal behind the house. Additionally, the master bedroom windows offer tantalizing glimpses of the nearby ocean, just a stone’s throw away.

Elegance in Every Detail

Attention to detail is evident throughout this coastal gem, with ceiling accents serving as a testament to the home’s elegance. The living room boasts 9-foot coffered ceilings, adding a touch of drama and sophistication. The cove crown molding, thoughtfully chosen by the homeowners, lends a polished finish to the kitchen cabinets that extend to the ceiling. Upstairs, tray ceilings adorn the den and master bedrooms, creating cozy and inviting spaces. In the master bathroom, a vaulted ceiling adds an extra dimension of luxury, making it a sanctuary within the home.

In conclusion, the “Cottage on the Canal” plan is a testament to the artistry and expertise that goes into designing beach homes that not only reflect the coastal lifestyle but also seamlessly integrate with their surroundings. Stay tuned for more inspiration in our “Build of the Month” series, where we continue to showcase exceptional beach home designs that exemplify the best of coastal living.
