This new home in Carolina Beach NC is called the Aruba Plan, and it has fast become our most popular design. Our first home was an Aruba Plan built on Searay Lane in Carolina Beach in 2015. It’s a great open floor plan that we are gradually making changes to as we build it and get feedback (as of this writing we are making living/dining/kitchen even bigger). See video tour below:

The finishes in this home came out wonderful and we received great feedback on the tile work and floors. The design of this plan is intended to keep the main area and master suite on the main level, with three more large bedrooms and a bath upstairs. Originally it was only two bedrooms upstairs but we added one more. Future versions of this home will have a much larger living/kitchen/dining area, 4br/2.5ba, and an optional garage. We have also switched from vinyl to fiber cement (Hardy) siding.

Below is the photo gallery for this new home in Carolina Beach:
