Plan Styles
Small Cottage house plan with exceptional charm
A simple and pleasing front facade does not begin to do justice to this pleasing cottage. The true charm is reserved for the owners. Perfect for empty-nexters, a forward-oriented bedroom has easy access to a four-fixture bathroom and laundry room. The main living area is oriented toward the back yard. A pleasing L-shaped configuration helps to define the dining area from the open kitchen with island and the living room benefits from a vaulted ceiling, open to the mezzanine. A dramatic two-sided fireplace can be enjoyed from the living room or from the covered patio.

The mezzanine includes a flex space that can be used as an office, extra social area or easily converted to bedroom 3. The second level also includes a bedroom with generous closet and three-piece bathroom.
Plan description

    We love this house! Do you have a estimate on what this would cost to build in Oneida County NY?

  4. Liesl Schick 16 January 2014

    My husband and I really like this house. We were thinking of building it without the fireplace and screening in the porch area. We also would make a third bedroom instead of the sitting area upstairs. Considering these changes would this home be economical to build?

    • Customer service 16 January 2014

      Good day Ms. Schick and thank you for your interest in this plan.

      Although we can help you with customizing the plan, you will need to inquire from local contractors and materials suppliers for the cost to build the home with the changes.
