These home designs, sometimes referred to as "English cottages," make perfect living quarters for singles or retirees who do not require much living space. Cottage house plans are built around small but functional rooms that provide the essentials for comfortable living, such as compact kitchens, one or two bedrooms, and a den. Typically, cottage house plans do not include any extravagant amenities since they are designed to be cozy and efficient. These floor plans are excellent for those with simplistic tastes and a desire to live a comfortable and affordable lifestyle. Cottage home plans also make excellent secondary residences for those who are looking to build a home for a cozy weekend retreats.
Since cottage home designs are usually smaller (less than 1200 feet) in size, they are an excellent choice for mother-in-law houses, which rest quietly by the main quarters to accommodate guests (perhaps even a mother-in-law). The small footprint of these homes makes them ideal for lots of varying shapes and sizes, and their charming style adds character to any setting. As mentioned above, the interior usually has a simplistic design, but many of these homes have stylish exteriors with ornate details and trim. These exterior details add the “storybook charm” for which cottage home plans are known. If you have the space and the means to build a secondary home, consider these timeless designs for lasting charm that comes at a reasonable price.
