Best Custom Home Features for Summer on LBI

Best custom home features

Building a house on LBI may seem like a large undertaking, but thanks to Stonehenge Building & Development’s thirty years of experience in building custom homes on Long Beach Island, our homeowners can draw on our experience, industry knowledge, and community relationships so they can focus on the details that truly matter. From design preference to which of our favorite summer features their families may need most for life on the Island, only your budget can limit what our team can accomplish when making your dream custom home ideas become a reality. With that in mind, here are some of the best custom home features for summer on LBI.

While so much of life here on Long Beach Island focuses on beach life and the shore, there’s something to be said about having your own pool. LBI’s beaches are some of the most picturesque at the Jersey Shore, but maybe you’re looking for some privacy or are hosting friends and family for a cookout and getting everyone to the beach can be a hassle. That’s when having a gunite pool can come in handy. Gunite is a specially formulated material used in making pools of any size or shape, so we can truly customize your pool to the size of your yard and your personal preference. So relax, pull up a lounger, and soak up some sun while laying pool side in the comforts of your very own custom home. Aside from pools, other water features we highly recommend are outdoor showers to help keep the beach where it belongs (ie: not inside your beautiful home) and spas to soak away all your worries.

Another feature we really love to incorporate in our custom homes as long-time builders on LBI is an outdoor seating area. This could include an outdoor kitchen to help make you the “hosts with the most” or show off your BBQ skills, all while keeping you in the thick of things rather than cooped up inside. Another great addition to any outdoor seating area, is a firepit and cozy seating area for all of your friends and family to gather around at the end of the day. Whether you prefer this seating area to be on a porch with remote activated screens or on a patio, is entirely up to you because this is your dream custom home on LBI.

With so many features to consider for your new home on Long Beach Island, our expert team at Stonehenge Building & Development is here to help you navigate every stage of the home building process. Are you ready to get started on your custom home? Contact us today or visit to learn more.
