If you have ever visited the Louisiana Lowcountry or another Beach or Coastal area, you may have seen house designs that appear to be on "stilts." These home plans are pier built homes. Homes that use pier foundations have a grid system of girders (beams), piers, and footings to elevate the structure of the home above the ground plane or grade. The piers serve as columns for the structure. Lifting the house plan well above the ground in a beach or coastal region or Lowcountry region is wise to prevent possible flood damage. Pier foundations are economical foundations to construct. But, keep in mind, floor insulation is critical when building home designs upon pier foundations.
