There is something romantic about the idea of a quaint cottage. Whether it’s a mountain getaway, an oceanside retreat with the sound of crashing waves just outside, or just a special place to come home to every day, a cottage is timeless.

While a cottage can feel like it comes right out of a favorite childhood book, it can also have a modern, sleek design. There are a lot of practical qualities, including that:

  • They’re perfect for rural, suburban, or urban settings.
  • They’re suitable for different family sizes.
  • They can be used as a vacation home, first home, or retirement property. 
  • They can be one or two stories with a smaller upstairs. 

The classic cottage design is gaining in popularity because it fits so many different lifestyles, including those of:

  • First-time homebuyers who want something affordable yet charming.
  • Retirees who want convenient living that’s easy to lock and leave for effortless travel.
  • Weekend warriors who want an affordable vacation home near the mountains or ocean.
  • Families who simply want to downsize their homes.

Fortunately, at Adair Homes, we have clever cottage floor plans that combine classic architectural charm with modern features for a home that feels just right. And like every Adair Homes floor plan, our cottages include an almost unlimited number of ways to personalize your home.

Here are six of our popular cottage plans:

Choosing the Right Siding for Your Dream Home

Choosing from various house siding options is an important step in the design process. Your home’s exterior says a lot about you. Do you want to stand out from the neighbors, blend in with an established aesthetic, or do you have specific features in mind? Materials, styles, and colors all play a role in the overall look and feel of your home.

Different types of siding also require varying levels of maintenance and durability. At Adair Homes, we use low-maintenance, long-lasting materials, such as James Hardie fiber cement siding and weather-resistant cedar shingles, to create the look you desire without the hassle of cracking, bending, rusting, or fading that can occur with other types of siding materials.
