Small cottage plans

Sofia is the biggest one of our small cottage plans. It stands out with its typical rustic look with a gambrel roof and wooden shingle cladding on the roof’s walls. You will find a main interior place on the ground floor, which can serve as a living room, dining room, socializing space, play area, study, relaxing space, or anything else you can think of. The room is quite spacious with three windows bringing light in, a small kitchenette, and access to the bathroom and storage room placed side by side on this level. So not only you have everything you need, you can enjoy a cozy atmosphere and, for example, make it even more warm and homey by adding a fireplace. From the ground floor, little wooden steps will lead you to a loft, which is again very spacious and has room for 2 bedrooms. Each of them is quite big, will provide a perfect feeling of privacy and chance to rest properly and has two windows to enjoy nice views.

Construction PDF plans

Wooden tiny house Sofia, named after famous Pin-up girl Sofia Loren, is very popular among our small cottage plans. Even though it is bigger, it is still easy to build timber frame construction, insulated and standing on concrete footings. The floor consists of few layers of wooden planks, OSB boards, insulation, and the gambrel roof, which has metal sheeting on top. OSB boards are also used for wall cladding. The ground floor includes all the important facilities such as a storage room, kitchenette, and bathroom, together with Sofia’s interior’s main central space. It also provides access to the loft, which is divided into 2 big bedrooms. This tiny wooden house’s interior space is well lit through several windows and creates a lovely relaxing atmosphere. Does this sound tempting? But would you prefer to have a look at more of our small cottage plans first?

What is included in your estimated materials cost aside from nails and lumber?

Basically: interior surfaces, exterior sheathing, cladding, openings, wiring, stairs, insulation.

Will this meet building code in Florida

I do not know exact Florida codes, so I can not guarantee them.

Yes was wondering about alterations as well, are they available??

7 years 6 months ago

Yes, they are. Of course you are welcome to do any kind of adjustments you wish to the plans yourself. However I can also prepare the proper plans with alterations for you, if you have in mind more complex changes. You can email us to with details about your ideas and I will let you know what the cost of the altered plans would then be.

the home builders assns really dont want people to know just how cheap it is to build anything

8 years 10 months ago

why would the building materials be 30,000??? insain… i feel like i could build this just as well way cheaper… jus sayin

I suspect that estimated cost is calculating in things other than the basic construction such as appliances and other hardware. It’s a shame the replies here to questions are so few and far between.

Interesting and lovely. Impractical since no cabin or cottage design incorporated insulation of any sort. All these designs are for one or two seasons use only. Seems a shame.

Hi Alan,
It´s no problem to add the additional insulation if needed..the basic construction and the whole concept still remains the same.

Thank you for clarifying. I too am a bit curious about the cost of materials. Lumber for such a small footprint shouldn’t be this high. I love the design though. Very well done. Could I get this altered? I’m not in love with the roof.

Also, could you post a picture of the bathroom?
