What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to How to Design a Storybook Cottage
A storybook cottage stresses the vertical while being firmly planted in the ground. A stone base provides a firmness and roots the house to the earth, while the roof pitch, windows, siding and the rest have a distinct lift that carries the eye upward to the sky. While on the one hand we feel at ease, on the other we are just a little bit nervous about floating away.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Cottages: The Comfort Food of Architecture
… and so is half timbering. A cottage has more to do with size and welcome than with a single look.
