*Plans are drafted to meet average conditions and building codes in Nebraska, Ohio, and Texas at the time they are designed (contact us for more information). Because codes and requirements can change and may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, the designers cannot warrant compliance with any specific code or regulation. All plans can be adapted to your local building codes and requirements. It is the responsibility of the purchaser and/or builder of each plan to see that the structure is built in strict compliance with all governing municipal codes (city, county, state, and federal).

This idyllic cottage house plan is a great choice for those building on small urban lots or looking for a vacation home or backyard cottage. Shingles and horizontal lap siding blend to create a charming and eye-catching exterior to the Mylitta Cottage plan.
Slender posts frame the front porch of this small house plan. The porch is a wonderful place for a porch swing or chairs to enjoy sipping on a beverage and watching the world go by. Stepping through the front door you are immediately in the great room. Family room, dining room and kitchen are seamlessly laid out in one room. The great room is naturally bright from windows along two walls. The kitchen is filled with modern appliances and provides plenty of counter work space and cabinet storage.
A cased opening off the family room is the start of the hallway that leads back towards the bedrooms. Washer and dryer are tucked away in a closet off this hallway and the full bathroom is just a few steps away. Two bedrooms fill the back of the floor plan. The first room is the smaller of the two and the larger room can serve as the master bedroom.
If the Mylitta Cottage is used as a guest or in-law cottage and the second bedroom is not needed it can be furnished as a hobby or craft room, library or den.
