*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).
Simple and charming, the cottage house plan Mylitta Cottage 2 is a great design choice for those who enjoy minimalistic living or are looking for a vacation retreat.
Slender columns frame the front porch of this tiny home plan. The front porch is large enough for a porch swing or a set of chairs and is an ideal place to watch the world go by or enjoy nature. Stepping inside, the front door opens to the Mylitta Cottage’s great room. Family room, dining room and kitchen blend together in one large room. The family room is filled with natural light from the large picture window along the front wall. The dining room matches the family room in brightness and is separated from the kitchen only by the peninsular eating bar. The C-shaped kitchen is filled with modern appliances and offers counter space and cabinet storage along three sides.
Back at the family room, an opening leads to a hallway. Along this hallway is the laundry room and full bathroom. The back of the floor plan is filled with two bedrooms. The larger bedroom can serve as the master or possibly a bunk room is more sleeping space is needed.
At only 25’ wide, the Mylitta Cottage is designed for a narrow lot. This makes it a great home plan to consider for those building on small city lots or looking at adding an accessory structure to their property. This one story house plan would make an ideal home for aging parents while still providing them with independence or as a rental for those in large cities or college towns.
