Floor plans for very small cottages can be obtained from the Floor Plans website. These floor plans can range anywhere from 140 square feet to 1800 square feet.
Cottages serve a number of purposes, from family homes to single room getaways. The smallest cottage listed on the Floor Plans website includes only a single room on the interior. This room houses an upper cabinet and a workbench for any repair, labor or artistic work. In addition, the cottage includes three windows and two exit doors. There are no other amenities and no fixtures for pipes or water. The exterior does include a covered porch. This size cottage makes it an ideal work space.
Larger cottages can include enough space for vacationing, and stand at a modest size of 876 square feet. This plan includes a 9-by-9-square-foot bedroom, a 12-by-9-square-foot living room, as well as a small bathroom and kitchen. This slightly larger home minimizes the living space by compressing the kitchen and bathroom nearly into a single room. The living room, bedroom, and kitchen/bathroom form a singular column on the east end of the home. In addition, this size house also includes an outdoor patio.
The Floor Plans website maintains a database that can be used to search for additional features, including more bedrooms, greater space for the kitchen or bathroom, as well as the inclusion of other design elements and features.
