Tuckaway Cottage Designs

Welcome! And thank you for visiting Tuckaway Cottages!  We’re happy to show 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. They can be a comfortable home for 1 or 2 people. They are known as a backyard cottage, a granny cottage, an in-law cottage, an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit), etc. They can be used as a home for a family member or as a rental unit for a little extra income. They could also be used as a small second home at your favorite vacation spot. Most are between 400 and 800 sq. ft. but we will have some even smaller. We're also working on larger models with a second bedroom or hobby/study room. If you're interested in something specific that is not in our featured plans collection, contact us at  tuckawaycottages@gmail.com and we can custom design one for you.

Our small cottage designs include a covered porch at the entry which leads into a living area which typically has a cathedral ceiling. There is a kitchen, open to the living area, that is fully functional even though sometimes small. Each has a complete bathroom with a full-size tub or shower. Each design has a separate bedroom with a decent size closet(s). There typically is another closet for coats or storage. On most plans we have included a utility closet; some with access from the exterior. We also suggest a location for a combination washer/dryer. If this is not needed, that space can be easily converted for another use. We have tried to include most of what you would need in a small house plan.

Look through our Featured Plans collection and see if there is a design that fits your needs.

Thanks for visiting!
