With their romantic charm and character, English cottage house plans (or storybook cottages) and floor plans are sure to catch your eye. Whether you are looking for a lovely vacation retreat, cozy guest house (or in-law unit), or primary residence, English cottage house plans are sure to fit your needs. These whimsical home designs are full of character and smart amenities. English cottage house plans and floor plans are typically on the smaller side and usually boast one or one-and-a-half stories. However, the English cottage home style has inspired larger footprints and more refined home plans, while still sporting the cozy and comfortable charm that we all love. Exterior characteristics of English cottage house plans include: a steeply pitched roof, complex intersecting gables, half timbering, casement windows (with small panes), and a massive dominating chimney. Today’s English cottage house plans and floor plans feature practical and smart layouts without sacrificing their unique character and charm. For example, many of our English cottage house plans offer open concept floor plans that are convenient and cool. Why are open layouts so popular? They make small homes feel larger than they actually are, promote a modern sense of relaxation, and create clear sightlines throughout the main living areas. Our collection of storybook house plans feature home designs in all kinds of sizes. Whether you are looking for a 1 bedroom house plan, 2 bedroom house plan, or 3 bedroom house plan (or another size), we are sure to have it here. If we don’t, our modification department can help you customize most of our plans to fit your needs (like adding an extra bedroom).
