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. Most cottages price out in the $190-200 per sf range when complete (including utilities), although this can vary depending on finishes chosen and site location. Call to discuss options, pricing and other model options. All Historic Shed™ cottages are engineered to meet Florida Building Codes. Plans are provided by Historic Shed as part of the building project.

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.
