Cottage House Plans

Cottage house plans offer informal floor plans wrapped in idyllic storybook charm, reminiscent of the English countryside. Exterior features often include adorning the design with vertical batt and board siding, shingles, and stone accents. 

Known for being quaint, cozy, and informal cottage floor plans tend to be small - inviting homeowners to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and to relax in serene natural surroundings. While cottage home designs make great year round residences, they are also a popular choice for vacation homes set next to rivers, lakes, the beach, or in mountain settings. Those looking to blend into their surroundings will want to search The House Plan Company's collection of cottage style designs.

Cottage designs are available in a variety of sizes and floor plan arrangements from one or two story cabin plans to small cottage-style farmhouse or craftsman designs. The selection of a cottage home design is a timeless style and the perfect custom small home to get away from it all.
