There are many definitions of “green” and “sustainable”; – one of the best is small. Smaller homes consume less energy and take less energy and resources to build. “Small”, however, only refers to the measurements of this house – not to its livability. It’s a true “Not So Big House”.
This home is the quintessential definition of a “cozy cottage”. At only 1606 square feet, it’s the smallest custom home we’ve ever designed. And yet it’s filled with life, with love, and with character.
The site for this home was a challenge that required a zoning variance to make even this tiny home fit. But it’s precisely placed to take advantage of woodland and stream views and to block noise from the nearby road.
It’s a true sanctuary for the homeowner and her love for the natural world around her.
