Many books, children’s stories and cartoons reference the small quaint bungalow or cottage as a safe place to be, go or even seek out. The very words bungalow and cottage make me immediately shift my train of though to a more restful and relaxed state. It just feels right for me and many other folks as well.
Cottages are usually small so they are relatively less expensive to build, maintain, heat and cool. In a time when people are looking for ways to cut back and save money in all areas of life the cottage lifestyle is becoming more popular.
Cottage homes originated in medieval Europe for farm workers and their families and were typically for peasant families. The term cottage not only referred to the home but also the barn and the garden or yard area that was typically fenced in. They were built of stone or other inexpensive locally found materials.
Coastal Beach Homes – Due to the close proximity of the shoreline, Coastal homes are designed to allow water to flow underneath it freely without causing any damage, which is why the first floor is typically raised up on pier foundations to accommodate any rise in tides. With the first level being raised, you can still opt for a second story that will cater to your desired space and needs. Typically Coastal Beach Homes are built with large windows to allow the scenic views to be enjoyed.
