Well-designed exteriors and  efficient-
ly arranged interiors  with  open  floor
plans make for a winning combination in these lovely little cottages!

Large  covered  porches   and   open
decks  expand  the  living  area   and
bring the outdoors in.   The extensive use  of  natural   materials   such  as
stone and wood shingles lend authen-
ticity -- and quality -- to the  overall designs.

At only 569 square feet, the vacation retreat pictured above is the smallest cottage featured here.     Despite  its small size, the open living area reflect-
ed in the floor plan at right gives it a more spacious look and feel.  The full width front porch also adds to the feeling of openess in this  small cottage house plan.

Quaint Craftsman Style

A curved-shingle roof, massive stone chimney  and  shingled  exterior  add rustic charm to the compact 1,035 square  foot  Craftsman Style  cottage pictured below. The exterior is further enhanced by the covered entryway, where delicate  wood  posts  are  anchored  on  enormous  splayed  stone bases.     In the shed dormer,  Arts and Crafts grills define the three  large windows.    Warmed by a large stone fireplace, the living room is complete with a window seat in the bay window.   The adjacent dining room is sepa-
rated from the country kitchen by a peninsula counter,  as  shown  in  the small cottage house plan below right.   On the second floor, two bedrooms -- the larger one with a walk-in closet -- share a full bath.

East Coast Shingle Style

Inspired  by  19th-century  summer cottages along the East Coast, the 1,442 square foot Shingle Style de-
sign pictured above  is  suitable  as either a year-round residence or a vacation retreat.     Serving as outdoor entertainment areas are a wrap-
around veranda in front and a screened porch in back.   Hardwood  floors, along with nine and ten foot ceilings add beauty and volume to the indoor living spaces.  The front door opens to a two-story foyer adjacent to the spacious and open living room.     Nearby, the dining room is nestled be-
tween two sets of sliding French  doors,  one to the veranda and the other to the porch. Centrally located, the efficient kitchen features a convenient pass-through to the  living  room.     Double doors open to the first floor master suite with its private bath and  access to the porch.  The master bath includes a handy pocket door to the utility room.    Upstairs,  two bedrooms, both with sloped ceilings, share a four-fixture bath.   A built-in seat adds to the appeal of the balcony area.


Compact Country Retreats

A steeply pitched roof,  three pedimented dormers and  a  full-width  porch supported by rugged posts help countrify  the  1,065  square  foot  bucolic cottage pictured below. Batten-board shutters trim both the entryway and the  first-floor  windows,  further  enhancing  the  provincial  flavor  of  the design.   Inside, the compact floor plan is designed for maximum efficiency. The living room is a showpiece,  its vaulted ceiling  soaring  a  breathtaking twenty-six feet.   Towering custom glass set atop casement windows flood the space with light while a hearth fireplace with  an  exposed  flue  warms the space.     The corner kitchen is convenient to both the living room and the dining room.    Its counters are stylishly angled, and a pass-thru makes meal service easy.     A large utility room and the guest half-bath complete the first floor.    Upstairs, a nine-foot ceiling augments the spacious feeling of the master bedroom. Multiple dormers help illuminate the room as well as the large walk-in closet. The bathroom is shared with the sleeping loft that overlooks the living room.

A wide welcoming porch supported
by massive posts greets visitors to
this cozy 910 square foot vacation retreat pictured above. Deep eave overhangs and  scalloped  shingles
in the gable-ends intensify the rustic character of the home, while multiple bay windows and a front door with oval  glass  add  pleasing  architectural accents to the design.     The entry foyer insulates the living areas on the left side of the home from the sleeping quarter on the right.    Vaulted ceil-
ings are featured throughout  the  home.     A  bay  window  in  the  front- facing kitchen creates a cozy breakfast nook  while  helping  to  illuminate
the space. There  is  also  a  pass-through  to  the  living  room  which  is
dressed with a fireplace and sliding doors opening to the rear patio.    Two spacious bedrooms share the full bath that divides them.  The front-facing master bedroom is expanded further by a bay window,  and both bedrooms have been provided with ample closet space.


Gable End Brackets & Window Bay

A spacious wrap-around porch and walk-thru  great  room  make  the  780 square  foot,  two story cottage pictured below feel much larger  than  its modest size would otherwise dictate. This little retreat also contains a fire-
place and a cozy dining nook.  Upstairs is a bedroom and a full bath, along with potential expansion space.

Shed Roof Porch & Dormers

A shed dormer and rustic  exterior  en-
hance the small cottage house plan of 1,053  square  feet  pictured  at  right
and below.  Both a covered porch and large open deck area  warmed  by  an outside stone fireplace extend the  liv-
ing area to the outdoors.    The  living room/dining area  has  two  bays  and another fireplace,  as  well  as access
to the deck.     The U-shaped kitchen features an eating bar,  pantry  closet and  close  proximity   to   a   stacked washer/dryer for convenience.     Two bedrooms share the hall bath with  the master bedroom, which is warmed by a romantic fireplace.   Upstairs, an additional 960 square feet in bonus space can be finished off to add extra bedrooms or a play room.
