Southern Cottages
Southern Cottages is a house plan service offering architect designed houses, cottages, and beach houses for a gracious informal lifestyle. The plans are a collection of exciting home designs which blend traditional southern coastal home styling with more contemporary architectural forms and open plan floor layouts. Each house plan has distinctive architectural features which gives it special character and sets it apart from the typical standard plan book offerings. These designs are not commonplace builder's plans or subdivision house plans. Some of the designs are quite complex in their structure and roof line, thereby contributing to their visual interest; however, the floor plan layouts are designed to be simple, straightforward, and efficient. Circulation space is minimized or combined with living spaces so you are not paying for a lot of dark hallways. The proximity of rooms and service areas are designed for ease of use and convenience. Interior volumes and spatial relationships create dynamic and interesting spaces. The house plans are not grandiose or pretentious but are practical with added architectural flair for a more informal lifestyle. The "cottage" attribute is evident in all the designs, even the largest house plan of over 4,400 square feet. The house plans offer a variety of architectural styles ranging from whimsical to mainstream.
