Oh, those country house plans! Don't we all (or should we say y'all) just love them? Front porches, back porches, wrap-around porches, screened porches, what do they remind you of? Wicker chairs, rocking chairs, Adirondacks and porch swings come to mind when envisioning Country House Plans. Probably the next most common feature is dormers.

This home design is based upon a few still existing but long abandoned frontier homes of the Deep South. Like most homestead structures built in the Deep South in the 1800's the initial home was a simple one-room structure. The entire family lived in the one room while the main home was being built just steps away. After the main home was completed the original structure was used as a kitchen and was often joined to the main home with a breezeway. As means became available shed porches were added across the front of the main house and as the family grew attic spaces were taken in and dormers added to accommodate the need for more space. These historical steps were retraced in creating the exterior faade of this rustic cottage design but the interior is totally modern. It is a super energy saving design featuring 6 exterior walls and a host of other low cost features designed to save loads of utility cost. The kitchen and the master bath have windows encased with sidewalls to hold glass shelves for displaying your favorite plants. The master suite has built in bookshelves and a private sitting area. The built in pantry and sewing area make the kitchen a dream for the active homemaker. Living room features include a sloped beamed ceiling and a massive stone-faced wood-burning fireplace.
