Hi Michelle- That sounds a little difficult. The kinds of spaces in a cottage don't lend themselves to an open floor plan like in the photo of our project you posted. The scale and types of individual rooms, and the shapes of cottages and their roofs, are not similar to typical open-plan modern houses. However, you could open up some rooms to each other, and through design, detailing, furniture, etc. make it more of a hybrid- a kind of contemporary play on the traditional bungalow, brought into the 21st century (where you read both old and new). But to do this it would require more than $100,000 I suspect, especially as structural retrofitting (to get the larger open rooms) would be required. Hope that helps, and good luck. John, Dutton Architects
