Cottage style house generally refers to a home that is small in scale with storybook like charm. The exterior design of the cottage house features relaxed, simple details such as exposed rafter tails, square columns, and steeply sloped gable roofs and were made popular by pattern books in the mid 19th century.
Cozy and inviting, with deep porches, allowing expanded outdoor living space is just one of the many features of a small cottage home, making this a perfect house plan choice for entertainers.
Characteristically, small cottage house plans are one to one and a half stories tall with the living spaces central to the ground floor. Similar to the bungalow style, the cottage house plan is designed to have an efficient floor plan where most rooms are connected without the wasted space of hallways. Bedrooms are located on the second floor within the steeply sloped gable roof. These notable details allow the home to "live" larger than its square footage. The cottage style home is comfortable and offers a "lived-in" feel that is often missing in larger, impersonal style homes.
Offering charm both inside and out, small cottage house plans provide ample living space in a small foot print. Built-in cabinets and shelves make-up for smaller size and limited storage space of cottage house plan and enhance the character and appeal. Additionally, cottage styles houses often feature brick, stone, and wood details not only on the exterior, but on the interior as well. Brick hearths and reclaimed wood floors are examples of the interior details of a cottage style house that add charm and coziness to the home.
