This Cross Gable small cottage plan has been handcrafted for long life and durability and is built from the finest Vermont lumber. This charming small cottage plan is versatile enough to fulfill any of your outbuilding needs. You might consider using it as a children’s playhouse, a potting shed, or upgrade to the four-season plan for a home office.
This charming small cottage plan was originally designed in 2001 by Domenic Mangano for the Stratton Garden Show that was held in the first week of May. The cross-gable roof on the small cottage abounds with the headroom and is a stylish addition to any vacation property. The small cottage plan has floor, wall, and roof insulation has insulated double pane windows along with an insulated door that turns this small cottage in to a four-season shell. You could install a wood stove, a composting toilet and a solar package for off-grid living, or install modern electrical, plumbing, and heating options. Other possible upgrades to this small cottage plan include pressure-treated flooring, alternative siding choices, shingle roofing (asphalt or cedar), flower boxes, and weathervanes.
When dreaming about a small cottage plan you might imagine tranquil surroundings that bring back memories of a simpler way of life. Small cottage plans are charming structures that simply emanate warmth and comfort. Small cottages can make charming guesthouses or backyard retreats. When the primary purpose of your small cottage plan is a vacation home, the intimate space is ideal for couples who are looking for peaceful weekend getaways or for families who are seeking quality time and bonding. At the Jamaica Cottage Shop, they think that having a cabin building in your backyard can be just as rewarding as having one in the backcountry. If you are in need of a home office or a bunkhouse for guests, you can turn your four-season cabin retreat into a combined guest house and a workspace for hobbies such as gardening, pottery, or jewelry making.
This small cottage plan is offered as a frame only cabin kits, complete pre-cut kits, 3 and 4 season cabin kits, or step-by-step cabin plans nationwide, with outdoor post and beam cottages and tiny house design solutions that give you the extra room you need for visiting guests, a corner garden office, potting shed or a country retreat. If you live within their Northeast delivery area, you can consider purchasing a fully assembled turn-key design.
