16’ X 32’ Kyka Cottage Plans from Small House Catalog

If you’re looking for something just a bit smaller than the Sno cabin we showed you earlier, the Kyka cottage might be just what you want!

The Kyka has a nice open layout, with the living room and kitchen in one “Great Room” and then a bathroom and master bedroom adjacent to it. There is a loft, but it’s for guests so you don’t have to climb up there every night!

Perfect for a couple, “granny pad” or even an Airbnb property — you can buy the plans here!

    This looks very livable, storage in bedroom and bathroom could be added – the loft could be multi use, a dormer would make it even better.

      Just a note, but there’s a closet in the bedroom shown in the plans…

        James… you’ve done it again. I totally overlooked the closet. Go to the top of the class. : )

        There is a closet, just no label. It is adjacent to the loft staircase. It’s actually a really nice closet. My only beef with this design is the height of the wall cabinets. I’m tall (for a woman) and only the bottom shelf would be remotely accessible for me. A giant must live here. It is very well executed and lovely, but the wall cabs just don’t make sense; why have them if you can’t use them without a ladder.

          One reason is design, some people just prefer the look of upper cabinets, the ability they provide to help hide clutter and less used items that would otherwise take up counter top space, and the extra storage they provide, which helps eliminate dead space that just collects dust and has to be eventually cleaned. While not everyone minds using a step ladder every now and then…

          Some upper cabinets, like the one directly above the hood vent for the stove or countertop range, is for hiding functional features and provides a way to hide the vent that goes through the wall or ceiling. So some are just hiding what’s there to give a more consistent and clean look that blends it in with the rest of the kitchen.

          While there are hardware options available to make them more functional. Like whole shelving that can just be pulled down when you need to access it instead of having to climb up to them. Among other options…

    Love the down stairs lay out, would use the loft for storage honestly. I would also have to get a bigger fridge, being out in the country you would have to have a place to store food when the weather got bad.

    I like this one very much! Spacious and efficient while making sure there is plenty of light and vistas to make it beautiful. Of course, we would all add our own personal touches to make it feel more like home. I would make one change to the floor plan. I would eliminate that small entrance door and use the slider by the kitchen as my entry, making that corner more useful and eliminating that awkward wall with looks like might be an eating bar…no photos of that wall but it shows up in the floor plan. That makes room in that corner for a nice big sectional sofa and still have room for a couple of easy chairs…maybe some short bookcases under that big window where the sofa is in this plan. You could put an awning over the slider to protect you from the elements while you open the door with your key. Heck, just put a patio cover over the deck and make it more cozy for entertaining even if it rains. Just my two cents worth. Even without my change, it is a very nice small house that would be easy to live in! Kudos to the designers!
