Hawaii Homes

If you are planning on building your own home in Hawaii be sure to check on the building codes. They are quite different than building on the mainland. Hawaiian architecture has a distinctive style developed primarily for the islands. In Downtown Honolulu, you can see Renaissance style houses. The residential homes built on the outskirts of the city are known as Hawaii plantation style with low-profile wood frames as they described it. Houses were designed to blend in easily with their surroundings.The houses on the beachfront has to be at least 40 foot away from the ocean. The roof must have special clips to help hold it in place during a hurricane. Having a property in the city versus waterfront home, it's up to your preference. If you live nearby the beach, soil erosion and tsunami are big factors to think about. In places where you can get private access to the beach, sometimes you pay an annual fee for the use of the beach. There are limits to what kind of structures can be built on the beach too. Not so much so if you built a house in the village. To avoid all these troubles, there are so many Hawaii Homes for Sale and ready to move in. Check the listings and ask your realtor for more information about the house. But, if you really wanted to build a house, make sure you check with the zoning board in the area to make sure you comply with all the regulations.
