Lowcountry house plans are designed on raised foundations and feature broad hipped roofs that extend over deep covered front porches. The “Low Country” regions include the Carolinas and Georgia. These areas create special architectural challenges due to their swampy environment, high water tables, excessive wet weather, and humidity. Many Lowcountry home designs also feature decorative roof dormers. Although Creole homes may appear to have a slightly formal feel on the exterior due to their use of large windows, French doors, transoms and broad front steps, upon entering one of these homes you will immediately feel the warmth and inviting southern style they emit.
