Lanai is the Hawaiian word for a generous covered porch that's used as an outdoor living room. It allows a house to expand in good weather, when everyone wants to enjoy the open air. Generous living porches -- including some with outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, or built-in grills -- are important features of these plans. All of our plans can be modified to add a lanai or living porch just for you. Click here to search our nearly 40,000 floor plan database to find more great plans with lanais and living porches.
