Rustic cottage style houses are not as common in the United States as they are in many other countries. The price of wood and stone has risen, so a lot of people can’t afford to build a wooden cottage anymore. I was pleasantly surprised at how much these plans are priced on the Internet.
I downloaded one of these plans and began to make some changes to it, and after a few revisions, I got my first house. I wasn’t going to be an architect, and I wanted a woodworking contractor. All I needed to do was get the plans for free and then contact someone to do the interior designing and construction of the house.
I liked the look of Rustic Cottages. It was just like being in a cabin in the woods. I knew there was a particular kind of house I wanted to have. I used this information to put together a list of the most important things I wanted.
The bedrooms must be cozy. This is the room where you will relax after a long day of work. I wanted to use wood in this room as much as possible. I wanted to include every type of wood I could find, including redwood and hemlock.
The kitchen is where I want to spend a lot of time. It would be the only room that I didn’t want to remodel. My plans called for an island-style kitchen, which means the countertops would be placed on a raised platform.
Antique furniture is a very important part of a Rustic cottage. You need to have it in every room. It will add value to your home.
I wanted to put flooring in all the rooms, but I knew it would take a lot of planning and time, so I settled for the carpet. That way, the room still had character.
Rustic Cottages are not a new concept. You can find thousands of plans for these cottages online, as well as many sites that will help you build your own rustic cottage in no time.
