Cottages is a house plan service
offering architect designed houses, cottages, and beach houses for a
gracious informal lifestyle. The plans are a collection of exciting
home designs which blend traditional southern coastal home styling with
more contemporary architectural forms and open plan floor layouts.
house plan has distinctive
architectural features which gives it special character and sets it
apart from the typical standard plan book
offerings. These designs are not commonplace builder's plans or
subdivision house plans.
house plans are not grandiose or pretentious but are practical with
flair for a more informal lifestyle. The "cottage" attribute is evident
in all the designs, even the largest house plan of over 4,400 square
feet. The house plans offer a variety of architectural styles ranging
from whimsical to mainstream.
Some of the designs are quite complex in their structure and roof line,
thereby contributing to their visual interest; however, the floor plan
layouts are designed to be simple, straightforward, and efficient.
Circulation space is minimized or combined with living spaces so you
are not paying for a lot of dark hallways. The proximity of rooms and
service areas are designed for ease of use and convenience. Interior
spatial relationships create dynamic and interesting spaces.
the plans have been designed by Michael R. McLeod, Architect, over a
period of the past 30 years.
Michael R. McLeod is a member of the American Institute of Architects,
registered in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia, and is a
member of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards.
