Small Farmhouse Plans...
Country Cottage Charm!

The small farmhouse plans featured here evoke a deep sense of place and unmis- takable connection to this enduring building type.  From a shepherd's cottage rehab in New Zealand to a solar powered prefab in Maine, they captivate our senses and reel us in with charm!

A shepherd's cottage in New Zealand epitomizes the image of an idyllic rural retreat.  Located about two hours southeast of Christchurch on Banks Peninsula, the picturesque dwelling is part of "Annandale," a working sheep farm.  The century old structure recently underwent a complete renovation and is now a vacation rental.

Simple in form, the gabled farmhouse cottage is anchored by a large brick chimney.  A full width porch with a shed roof extends across the front.

The cozy cottage features an open floor plan with approximately 990 square feet of living space on two levels.  Echoing the porch, the sitting or living room stretches the width of the cottage.  An inviting fireplace provides a focal point and gathering area at one end.  The kitchen and 3/4 bath are nestled within a lean-to extending across the back.
