Tuckaway Cottage Designs

Welcome! And thank you for visiting Tuckaway Cottages!  We’re excited 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 to be a comfortable home for 1 or 2 people.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. If you’re interested in any of these types, contact us at and we can custom design one for you.


Our small cottage designs include a covered porch at the entry which leads into a living room with a cathedral ceiling. There is a kitchen that is fully functional even if small. There is a full-size bathroom with a separate tub or 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; some have  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 tried to include most of what you would need in a small house plan.
