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.
Although all cottages are similar in feeling, every cottage owner makes unique cottage house plans for him or herself depending upon interests, hobbies, and tastes. In keeping with the earth-friendly lifestyle, much cottage living takes place (at least in summer months) outside, on a back patio or deck. Sitting in a restful chair beneath the blue sky, with an icy drink in hand, listening to the birds singing and the wind whispering in the trees, is a sensation that the wealthiest city dweller never knows.
Furniture and linens are chosen more for comfort than for chic. A living room should invite people to flop down for a spell, rather than look like something out of a resort or hotel ad. A cottage dining room is obviously not the place for sit down dinner parties, so cottage living makes for more intimate socializing.
Castoffs of the sea are under a glass top of a coffee table, set in counter tops in the bathroom and kitchen, and used for pathways around the house. Driftwood can be made into furniture, hung on the wall, or embodied in the basic architectural structure of the house.
