At Southern Cottages,
we offer distinctive house plans to make your dreams come true.

From the playful, coastal cottage getaway we call the Island Cottage to the stately Grand Gazebo Cottage and everything in between, we know you will find your perfect house plan. We have house plans with special features such as columned front porches, roof decks, windowed cupolas, dormers, wrap-around porches and cascading sheltering roofs all brought together in contemporary design adaptations of coastal architecture and Southern vernacular styles.

We offer small cottage house plans from less than 1500 square feet to larger Southern mansions of over 4200 square feet. We offer “rooms with a view” to take advantage of water views, coastal or mountain vistas, low country or other special vantage points available on your property. We have house plans on pilings for beach or lake environments, house plans with basements for inland properties, house plans suited for hillside usage, “farm house” and “country house” plans. We offer inverted floorplans with elevator (for a view from the top), garage apartments and RV Garage/dwellings among other innovative house plan designs.

At Southern Cottages, our designs embody desirable features of shingle style architecture, plantation style architecture, contemporary architecture, bungalow and craftsman style architecture. Our goal is to provide practical, professionally designed house plans to capture the spirit of casual living and enable you to find the joy of living in a home with unique architectural character.

Client Testimonials

I looked at over 10,000 plans over the course of 5 years. My wife and I could never agree on a plan until we both looked at your plan and said, “that’s it!” in unison.
Hurricane Ike beat up all the homes near our Island Cottage and yet she stood totally unharmed! Proving this house was well-designed! So, when it came time to build again, I could not even consider anyone else’s plans.
We want to thank you for having had the privilege of enjoying your architectural skills.
