Small house floor plans: Our thoughts on smaller homes

The Newcomb cottageAre you interested in building a smaller home?

Are you an empty-nester, a retired couple, a single person or a small family?

Perhaps you have vacationed in a cottage and thought, "This is actually big enough to live in!"

Or perhaps you want to build a vacation cottage now that you will retire to later.
