Scandinavian Cottage House Plan - Scandia Modern Cottage
Small home plan with front porch and unique modern home design!
Our Scandia Modern Cottage is a small house plan designed to feel large. It was
inspired by a trip to our favorite Scandinavian furniture store, where we were struck
by the spacious feeling they created within their furniture groupings. They really
know how to fully utilize a space. The idea struck us - why not create a house plan
that exhibits these same qualities? A floor plan that is small and large at the
same time. The result is our Scandia Modern Cottage House Plan. A very smart layout
provides for generous living spaces plus two bedrooms within it’s modest 1349 square
feet. This is one small yet simple and unique house plan.
The exterior is simple and clean yet dramatic. The form is organized by a steep
front to back gable that engages with a full width front porch and rear trellis.
The sides are punctuated with more modest shed and gable forms. Modern style window
units and smart crisp detailing give this house plan a distinctively Scandinavian
Modern Cottage aesthetic.
Inside the entry door the entire main floor volume is presented with Kitchen, Dining
and Living / Sitting areas all smartly zoned. The entry and mud room with powder
room are placed along the edge of the main space and the open stair lies on the opposite
side. Upstairs the two bedrooms are positioned on the front and back of the main
gable roof, with laundry and bath areas located conveniently in between.
The Scandia Modern Cottage house plan comes with a full basement foundation. The
basement is unfinished but indicates rough in locations for a future bathroom. The
plan could easily be adapted by your local Architect or Builder to accommodate lookout,
walkout or other lot configurations.
