Welcome! And thank you for visiting Tuckaway Cottages! We’re excited about showing you our collection of small cottage plans. We designed these cottages to fit snuggly into your backyard. They have a modest footprint and contain ample, but not excessive, living space for one or two people. They are small enough to be space conscious, but large enough to provide a comfortable living environment. They can be used as a Granny Cottage for a close family member or as an Accessory Dwelling Unit for a little extra income. They could also be used as a second home at your favorite vacation spot. Most are between 400 and 800 sq. ft. but we will have some even smaller. We’re working on those now. We’re also working on some larger models with a second bedroom or hobby/study room. Every small cottage design includes a covered porch at the entry which leads into a living room with a cathedral ceiling. There’s a small but adequate, fully functional kitchen, a full size bathroom with a separate tub (tub can be easily changed to a shower) and a separate bedroom with decent size closet. There typically is another closet for coats or storage. On some plans we have included a utility closet with access from the exterior. We also suggest a location for a combination washer/dryer. If this is not needed, then that space can be easily converted for another use. We have included most of what you would need in a small house plan.
Browse through our current small cottage designs. We’ll be adding more in the future. If you want to contact us to modify one of our existing cottages or to discuss your own small cottage ideas, we’d be glad to hear from you and would be thrilled to work with you on your new backyard cottage. Again, thank you for visiting Tuckaway Cottages!
