Small House and Cottage Floor Plans

Many of our clients are interested in building smaller, cozy and sensible homes, but love the qualities of a timberframe. Post and beam construction lends itself to open-concept interiors, offering a sense of spaciousness and gem-like graciousness to even a small area.

Small homes can be the most challenging to design. Working within strict parameters doesn’t allow you to add an extra 2′ here or there to make it work! Our house plans result from years of professional experience in designing, building – and living in! – timberframe houses.

Purchase the blueprints from us to build anywhere, or talk to us about building a frame for your small timber frame house or cottage in Atlantic Canada.

Our thoughts on smaller homes

As many people want to leave a smaller footprint on the earth, we have designed a series of small but liveable timber frame homes.

For empty-nesters and single people, a small home with a loft for visiting grandchildren may be all you need. Or perhaps you want to build a comfortable vacation cottage now that you will retire to later.

We’ve juggled the parameters needed to design living spaces that work.

Houseplans between 1500 and 2000 sq. ft.

Choose from a traditional-looking home, a contemporary design or one that is inspired by the view of your building lot.

We can make modifications to our houseplans which can save you a lot of money compared to having a home custom designed from scratch. Contact us if you would like us to build you a timber frame for a home in Atlantic Canada. Prices shown are for the standard blueprints without modifications, which you can use anywhere.

Houseplans over 2000 sq. ft.

If one of our Timber Frame House Plans comes close to what you want, but not quite, you can have us make modifications. This would save you a lot of money over having a home custom designed from scratch, especially if you can keep to minor changes. Contact us if you would like us to modify the blueprints for you to use anywhere, or if you’re interested in having a timber frame built in Atlantic Canada.
