Check out our selection of home designs that offer daylight basements. We use this term to mean walk-out basements that open directly to a lower yard, usually via sliding glass doors. Many lots slope downward, either toward the front (street) side or toward the rear (lake) side. Our daylight basement home plans also give you one or two floor plans that are set up high, affording panoramic views of the surrounding landscape! Imagine relaxing with friends and family in your recreation room, then inviting them to step outside for a dip in the hot tub or an afternoon of fishing! And don't worry! These house plans look really great, too! They come in a wide variety of sizes and styles.
