Top Cottage House Plans

What does the word “cottage” mean to you? For some, the term brings to mind a vacation in a rambling home, where the family has plenty of room to spread out while enjoying some rest and relaxation. For others, it reminds them of a cozy home nestled in the woods - the kind of place where children go to visit their grandmother. No matter what you envision, Donald A. Gardner Architects can help you achieve it with our cottage house plans. We have small cottage plans and spacious estate cottage home plans available with our signature style, so you will find exactly what you need to create your dream home.

Cottage Floor Plans Embrace Cozy Living With a Modern Twist

Our cottage-style house plans include a number of designs to fit most needs. These designs feature amenities and style in a smaller footprint that follows the traditional cottage-style home, yet with the modern amenities that today’s homeowners want. Ideal for year-round living and vacation homes, these cottage home plans embrace rustic living with modern features such as more open floor plans, ample storage and spa-inspired bathroom layouts.
Consider the cozy Runnymeade as an example. This 1,583-square-foot cottage has an attractive European exterior and ample space inside. 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 such as the Brielle, a Craftsman cottage with four bedrooms, four baths and more than 3,000 square feet of living space.
