Small Cottage Floor Plans... Compact Designs for Modern Living!
The small cottage floor plans shown here, though traditional in design, include all the amenities
necessary for contemporary lifestyles. They feature everything from spacious family rooms with soaring cathedral ceilings, to upper
level lofts and laundry rooms, to large wraparound porches with cozy stone fireplaces!
Stone Outdoor Fireplace
Pictured above, right, as well as in the image below, is "Cedar Creek Guest House" from Southern Living House
Plans. It features a stone, wood and log exterior with a soaring outdoor fireplace that anchors a substantial
wraparound porch. Though the compact interior floor plan encompasses only 437 square feet, it is very efficiently
arranged and highly functional . . . . . particularly when opened to the sprawling covered porch.
The lovely beach cottage that follows was designed by John Tee Archi- tect. A two story design, it features a
large family room with a fireplace and a soaring cathedral ceiling. Encompassing a total of 1,398 square feet,
the floor plan includes two bedrooms and two full baths. A large wraparound porch and rear deck area provide
ample opportunities to soak in the stunning waterside views!
The cottage pictured below, called "Inlet Retreat," is an exclusive design for Coastal Living by
Allison Ramsey Architects. A charming one and a half story confection, it encompasses 2,188 square feet and
includes three bedrooms and a loft, three full baths, and a den or study. Once again, a large wraparound porch
affords spectacular views of the surrounding land or waterscape!
Arts & Crafts
cottage that follows is from Architectural House Plans. Designed by Christian Gladieux of Gladieux & Associates,
it incorpo- rates 2,333 square feet of living area on two levels. Included in the cottage floor plans are three
bedrooms on the upper level -- one of which is a rather spacious master suite -- and two and a half baths. An
upper level laundry room just outside the bedroom doors lends a great deal of convenience. On the main floor,
the living room features a corner fireplace, while a study at the rear of the home offers plenty of privacy.
The remaining cottage floor plans featured here (that follow) are designed, or have the potential to be used,
as guest cottages. Pictured directly be- low is another structure by architect John Tee -- a charming two car
gar- age design with a 468 square foot upper level that readily lends itself to a nice guest house or mother-in-law
apartment. The steeply pitched gable roof with shed
provides a wonderful, naturally lighted space with a high, open ceiling for drama and excitement! Note the large
stone chimney on the gable end in the photo, as well as the designated area for a fire- place on the upper level
And finally, the exquisite little archi- tectural jewel at right was also de- signed by architect, John Tee, as a
guest cottage. Accessed by an ele- gant pair of shuttered French doors, it features an open floor plan of on- ly
220 square feet, pictured below. Complete with a three quarter bath, the cottage is ideal as a stand- alone home
office or studio, as well as an overnight guest house.
