Farwell 896 & 1126

 896 square foot cottage interior

About the plan

Convenient living on one level with many options including a 2nd floor bonus room, garage, open/enclosed porches, and patios. The house is shown with a conventional gable or hip roof at 5:12 roof pitch, and a steeper 10:12 roof pitch with optional dormers for the attic option. Alternately, you might consider implementing a low-slope green roof for maximum energy efficiency and dramatic vaulted rooms inside. The site orientation works well with the street on either the south side or the west side (east if mirroring the footprint). The one-floor plan is 896 sq.ft, which increases to 1,126 sq.ft. with the second floor bonus room, which is accessed via a space-saving alternating tread staircase. The Flyer and Study Plans include information for both versions. Separate Construction Plans are being developed for the two versions, which require very different attic and roof structures.

Whether you’re building a code-compliant plan or chose to add our Enhanced Efficiency details to create a high performance home, you will start by buying plans from our online store. We are also happy to customize any of our plans, or work with you to develop a unique home design that reflects your individuality and particular wishlist.

Natural Homes

We do not sell pre-designed natural homes on our website--there are just too many variables to make that feasible.
