Cottage Style Home Plans
Our Cottage home plan library is not limited to small, comfortable bungalow, and cottage home plans. The library also includes larger informal-looking home plan designs. Cottage home plans are typically traditionally styled, economical to build, smaller floor plans. However, these cottage home plans include many larger home plans. Cottage plans are more often one-story/ranch designs or two-story designs with the owner’s suite on the main level. They are often designed to serve as second homes, although there are many year round cottage plans in this collection.
Picturesque dormers, arched doorways, gables, quaint porches, and steep roof lines are just some of the features encompassing this library of cottage style home designs.
Based on the principles for using traditional materials and handicraft of local workmanship, our Cottage style house plans feature overhanging eaves, a low-slung gabled roof, and wide front porches framed by pedestal-like tapered columns. Materials often include stone, rough-hewn wood, and stucco. Many designs have wide front porches supported by columns.
The elevations of our cottage home plans reflect these time-honored elements, while the floor plans incorporate modern design features designed for the way we live our lives today. Each of our home plans can be customized to your specific needs.
