Double Porch Cottage w/ Great Room

The front of the home has a beautiful covered porch.

Here’s the side view, with beautiful board and batten siding.

The kitchen has a long island that seats four.

The great room fits the dining space and living room.

I love the brick fireplace. So classy.

One of the doors leads to the hallway, and the other is the closet.

The farmhouse sink has a view out of a double window.

The bathroom is good-sized.

It also includes a tub/shower stall.

This is one of the bedrooms.

And the other one is nearly the same size.

This door leads into the kitchen.

This precious Cottage house plan features a charming front covered porch to entice your family and friends into the home. Measuring the width of the exterior, the front porch offers beautiful aesthetic detailing with its exposed rafters, warm wooden beams, brick staircase and a symmetrical front entrance.

    I love the layout but I would decrease the size of one porch for a small bathroom.

    This is of course very nice. However, I look for tiny homes in less than 500 ft or less. This place is actually bigger than the house I was born in. People got used to 2500 & more feet of wasted space.
    This is nice but not small.
