Small Cottage House Plans

Are you looking for small cottage house plans? They are often favorites for year round living as well as the vacation home life style.

A simpler lifestyle...

A cozy cottage with lots of style and detail can be a very inviting space to get away, relax and spend time with family.

A wide selection of plans can be seen at

Small cottages can start at less than 1500 square feet, but with a good floor plan they can feel much larger.

I’ve been in this newly designed small cottage . It was built on sloping land and designed with a finished lower level walkout. A family of 4 could easily live year round in this home...not to mention family vacations.

Architectural features for cottages can include:

  • Steep roofs with roof overhangs

  • Metal roofs

  • Gable roofs

  • Interesting layouts

  • Fireplaces

  • Natural materials to add texture (stone, brick, wood)

  • Irregular foot prints

  • Open beam ceilings

Design details create an appealing atmosphere with architectural interest.
