Cottage style is usually asymmetrical with a steep, complex roof line. The floor
plans are filled with individuality. Their asymmetrical plans are based on the belief
that "a beautiful house fully reflects a fine character." Rooms tends to be small
and irregularly shaped and the upper rooms have sloping walls with dormers. This
style became especially popular in the United States during the 1920s and 1930s.
Often referred to as Carpenter Gothic Revival, small Cottage house plans are flexible
and fanciful featuring vertical board and batton walls, charming balconies and expansive
bay windows attributing to their Gothic heritage.
