Historic Shed Cottages

 Historic Shed CottageThere are many potential uses for a tiny house or cottage including a guest house, spare bedroom, granny flat, vacation home, rental unit, to house and aging parent or a child home from college. And with the Tiny House movement spreading like wild fire, we’ve seen how a small cottage can make a wonderful full time home. Below are some base plans for cottage designs. Each can be modified in a variety of ways to complement your historic property or meet your individual needs, and we have several more under production. The 14’x16′ Historic Shed™ Starlet Cottage starts at around $24,000 for the base building with simple finished interior (electrical, plumbing and kitchenette not included). Most price out in the $170-190 per sf range when complete, although this can vary depending on finishes chosen and site location. Call to discuss options, pricing and other model options. We can also do custom designs for a small fee.

Also be sure to check out our combination garage/ apartment. And a cottage with some interior photos. And another.

Limited financing is available for our cottages, or you can pursue a conventional construction loan through your regular bank. Please let your bank know that the cottage is neither a modular nor manufactured home, as most banks will not finance buildings classified as such.
