I hope you’ll love seeing these cottage house plans from Architectural Designs as much as I do. I got lost looking at all their styles of house plans.

Cottages are a favorite of mine and are popular with readers too. If I were to build a house, one of the styles I would look at first are cottage house plans.

Architectural Design has plans for any house style you prefer though like a Cape Cod, Beach house, Farmhouse, Southwest style, Georgian and even down to a house plan for a narrow lot. Special features like an elevator, butler walk-in pantry, in-law suite and more are easy to find by checking a box from their list of features available and searching on their site.

Here are the most charming cottage house plans I found to show you that I think you’ll enjoy.

  1. I find aspects of #1 and #2 appealing. I would take pieces from each to make it my dream home. There are two changes to the floor plan that I might have to make for my personal needs. In the master bedroom there is only one master closet and I would need two. One might be able to be added in the back right corner losing that window next to the master bath. My other change would be to enclose the back porch off of the laundry room to make that one large room when I could have dog crates, a feeding dog station and possibly a sink. I know this would mean adding a tiny covered area for rainy days that would be smaller. I think these changes could make it a dream home for me and my husband. I do dream someday of building a dream home with these types of personalized details for us and our fur babies as a forever home.

  2. I think it’s great to have so many resources when designing a home! It’s become a lot easier to keep track of designs with blogs and Pinterest now, as you’ve learned. However, like you said, it can still be fun to find some design magazines and keep some of their ideas as well. Thanks for sharing your sources of inspiration!

  3. My wife and I are thinking about building our own house. We’re in the information gathering stage right now. We’re trying to look at a lot of different arrangements and plans for homes. So, thanks for the list of different home plans. I like the Mountain Retreat Cottage!

  4. Thanks Julie, you always have interesting ideas. I love the thought of a stripped down version of the Victorian cottage with the three windows that keeps some character to the house.

  5. I just love the 3 round windows on that Victorian one. I’m not a fan of a lot of ornate details, but this cottage look is really romantic. I would love one that was “stripped down” 🙂

  6. numbers 2 & 4 are my picks to totally live in!! Now I must go play the power ball so i can get them.

  7. Oh my gosh Sue, I love them all. I think my favorite it the Mountain Retreat Cottage but it was so hard to choose. What a brilliant way to design your home. If I were planning on rebuilding, I would totally use these plans. In love with this post!
