Small house floor plans
Alexis is the classic A-frame house, which has been gaining popularity recently. The A-frame shape makes Alexis a lovely cozy little house, which everyone will love at first sight. The basic concept of the absence of interior walls creates a very homely feeling inside the cabin. There will be a space around the bottom parts of the walls/roof sides, which does not have a walking height; however, it provides a great place to be used as a storage space – you can either store things in cupboards or boxes, or you can use it for some furniture, for example for seating, to be put in when it is not being used. Another effective use of interior space is implemented by a sleeping loft, where you can climb up through little stairs at Alexis’s back. Therefore the ground floor reminds you less occupied with things and creates a cozy space for your daytime activities, with a chance to enjoy sunlight and beautiful views thanks to the front façade being entirely made of glass. The covered front porch only adds to Alexis’s exquisite relaxed atmosphere, one of our popular small house designs.

At the back part of the inside is a room that can be used as a bathroom, a little storage place, and doors leading to the back, where you can find another tiny covered porch, which can serve, for example, to store wood for your wood-burning stove.

I built the cottage 3 years ago and I am very happy with how it turned out, especially since I built it on my own.
The total cost was about 15,000 euros, but also including cellulose insulation, the whole interior, the connection to the water network, the pool for wastewater, the 4 photovoltaic panels, the instant hot water … It really was worth the project!
