Residential Boathouse Plans and Design Ideas

residential boathouse plans and design ideas

BOATHOUSE PLANS AND DESIGN IDEAS - If you are looking to build a boathouse on your residential property, you will need get permission from your state and county. Marine construction in Florida is strictly regulated by the state and federal law; even a simple wood dock for a rowboat may be reviewed by the Army Corps of engineers, the Department of Environmental protection, the U.S Fish & Wildlife Service…etc. If you build something without a permit, you will be fined by the state and the water structure that you built will most likely be removed. FMCA members can navigate this legal maze to ensure a safe, legal structure that you will enjoy for years to come.

To make the building process easier, Fender Marine Construction offers boathouse plans and design ideas that combines functionality with affordability. These boathouses are especially good if you have a certain budget range in mind. We call the pre designed boathouses the Silver Series and we have built many of them on residential properties around the Central Florida area. Depend on the style that you are looking for, we offer quite a few different designs for the Silver Series. If you have any boathouse design ideas with a budget, please contact us for more details.
