When you think of country style house plans the vision conjured up is of a small cottage with a white picket fence surrounded by climbing ivy and roses. Usually, by the term ”cottage” is meant a dwelling characterized by a rectangular shape between 700 and 900 feet square, simple yet attractive design, simple roof line, and set in a small parcel of land.
If you are unable to meet the need, a great country house plan should allow you to make certain changes in order to reduce expenses. In other words, the country house plan should be flexible. You need to be able to personalize the house and make it your own without damaging the artistry of the architect. This can be a very hard quality to achieve.
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.
The essence of cottage interiors is the blending of the familiar with the fresh – with matching your grandmother’s heritage silverware with your contemporary style plate or an antique chiffonier with up-to-date casements. Mixing the old with the new adds patina and personality to a cottage home and makes a unique statement about the owner.
