In spite of its cozy appeal, the Country Cottage house plan delivers both space and design.

Though cottage home plans may be synonymous with "cozy", today's best cottage designs maintain that feel without skimping on living space. Cottage house plans abound in telling details that make them live larger than their square footage.

The cottage floor plan’s irregular footprint give it an abundance of visual surprise, both in the interior layout and through their unexpected views of the surrounding landscape, making these homes uniquely suited to picturesque lots. Stone, brick, and wood used in both exterior construction and interior detail create organic ambience. Typical cottage house plans offer a lived-in comfort that may be lacking in larger, less personalized homes.

Architectural features:

  • Steep overhanging roofs, often with a combination of hipped and gabled forms
  • Small footprint and irregular layout
