Cottage charmer
Increasingly sought after by baby boomers, this kind of cottage includes all master amenities on the main floor. A cozy front porch dresses up the exterior and a well-designed plan includes many features in an efficient space.

The entry leads directly to an eat-in kitchen and adjacent living room with vaulted ceiling. The alternate covered side entrance is a mudroom with generous closet. The main floor is completed by a master bedroom and full bathroom with bath separate shower and laundry closet.

Two upstairs bedrooms enjoy angled ceilings and a shared bathroom.

An unfinished basement provides space for storage or expanded living.

Questions or Comments on this plan
  1. Ed League 25 September 2014

    I love this plan but don't need two bedrooms upstairs. I'm curious about the option of making the upstairs into a one bedroom with larger bath and walk in closet. Either this plan or something similar of similar sq footage and footprint.

    Thank you,
    Ed League

  2. Denise 17 December 2012

    Are there basement windows on the back sides of this house plan? If I got this plan, I would like to duplicate the first floor in the basement and would want to make sure there is an egress window of the bedroom.

    • Customer service 17 December 2012

      Good day and thank you for taking the time to write.

      The basement window in the back is located (approximately) under the washer/dryer and measures 84" wide x 24" high. Because its larger dimension is on the horizontal, it is not sufficient for an egress window.

      We offer comprehensive modification services for any of our plans and would be happy to provide a free estimate for this or any other changes that you might require.

      Please let me know if I can further assist you.
