Cottage House Plans and Home Designs by

Simple and Unique Cottage Designs that make you feel “at home”

What is a Cottage House Plan?  Your first image of a Cottage Home might come from a childhood fable - Snow White and the 7 dwarfs for instance.  A dramatically steep roof line with gabled dormers, a covered entry, a thatched roof, windows with shutters, timbered porch columns and a wood front door.  A glowing fire highlighting the warm wood interiors.  On the other hand your idea of a Cottage House Plan might mean a modest beach house with cedar shingle siding, deep porches to enjoy watching the surf and white washed wood interiors.  


For us at Simply Elegant Home Designs we think you could sum up the Cottage as a home that is simply warm, cozy, intimate, inviting and completely unpretentious.  We think that a cottage home design can be modern or traditional, spare or ornate, modestly sized or even a little bit larger as long as it conforms with these characteristics.


At Simply Elegant Home Designs many of our designs might qualify as a Cottage House Plan.  All of our home designs are modestly scaled and they evoke much of the imagery of a Cottage.  But of course all of our Cottage Home Plans are outfitted with our well laid out and functional interiors.  All the benefits of today’s modern house plans wrapped up in a cozy Cottage exterior.


If you are looking for a Cottage House Plan we might suggest you start by checking out the selections shown below.  If you don’t see exactly what you are looking for then contact us.  We are sure we can find a way to help you find the Cottage Home Design of your dreams.
