Have you been thinking of building the waterfront or hillside home of your dreams? If so, you’ll definitely want to consider incorporating a walkout basement into your custom home design! Keep reading four reasons why.

Design Your Home to the Land

When building a new home on a hillside or waterfront homesite, it’s essential to design the home to fit the homesite. Walkout basements help builders match the home to the slope of the land. Not only does this help with the structural aspects of the home but it also helps it blend better with the existing landscape.

Take Advantage of the View

It goes without saying picturesque views should be enjoyed, especially when those views are of the water! A walkout basement ensures the view can be seen from just about anywhere in your waterfront home.

Elevate Your Lower Floor Design

Adding a walkout basement to your lower level is a great way to give it a little something extra. This is particularly ideal for creating added privacy from the main floor. It’s the perfect way to enhance a great room, game room, or guest suite.

Easily Blend Indoor and Outdoor Living

A requirement of southern living is taking advantage of the weather year round, right? A walkout basement lets you do this with ease! If your lower level is designed for entertaining with a great room and pub-style bar, a walkout basement is an excellent addition. An added benefit? It’s a cost-effective way to maximize your living space! So slide open those glass doors and enjoy your favorite beverage in that fresh Texas air!
