Top Cottage House Plans & Cottage Floor Plans | Don Gardner

What does the word "cottage" mean to you? For some, the term brings to mind vacation in a rambling home. For others, it reminds them of a cozy home nestled in the woods -- the kind of place where children go to visit grandmother. No matter what you envision, Donald A. Gardner Architects can achieve it with our cottage house plans. We have small cabin plans and spacious estate cottage home plans available with our signature style.

Cabin Floor Plans Bring Rustic Living to Your Home
Our rustic house plans include a number of designs to fit most needs. These designs feature amenities and style in a small footprint in the traditional cottage style home. Ideal for year-round living and vacation homes, these cottage home plans are the ultimate in rustic living.

Consider the cozy Runnymeade as an example. This 1,583-square-foot cottage has an attractive European exterior and ample space inside; including a bonus room and breakfast nook with a bay window, where countless family meals can take place while enjoying the view. We have dozens of similar small cottage house plans for your consideration.

Perhaps you want a little more space while embracing the look and feel of a cabin. Cottage floor plans do not have to be small. We have larger options that embrace the rustic look without sacrificing space, including two-story cottages like the Brielle, a Craftsman cottage with four bedrooms, four baths and over 3,000 square feet of living space.
