Plan Description

This little house makes a dandy studio for artists, novelists, poets, and tuba players. Or a cozy workshop for carving decoys, tying flies, throwing pots, or throwing tantrums. Or it could be the cottage out back for your mother-in-law, for you, when your kid who majored in art history moves back home. It could be your cabin in the woods. Or the starter house for your third marriage. WORKSHOP French doors for moving large items in and out, or for letting in the evening air. 11 feet of work counter space with sink and under counter storage (or maybe even a small fridge to cool your choice of beverage). Plenty of windows for ample daylight to see what you're working on. 16' Wide x 12' Deep Overall Dimension to fit nicely in your backyard. 192 square feet total interior space (not including optional Loft). 13' x 11' (143 square feet) of open floor work space.

A small but useful closet for your weekend jeans and t-shirts. 8 feet of counter space with sink and room for a small microwave, plus under counter storage with room for a small fridge to cool last night's leftover pizza and your choice of beverage.

Meet the Designer - The Homestead Partners

The Homestead Partners - Houseplans.com
House plans for small, big, colonial, modern, and everything in between. You may insist on having more than one.

We're Ron Sakal and Sallie Hood (sakal-hood.com), a husband-and-wife team of architects who've spent decades creating workable townscapes, rescuing city centers from random development, designing beautiful houses, and teaching bright young architecture students how to do the same.

Along the way, we've become experts on the styles of American houses, ideas, designs, and materials that transform small and affordable spaces into wonderful places to live. Now we're offering those great American styles to everyone who yearns for something more interesting and more connected to the American culture.

Look around our collection of houses and see what moves you. After that, our firm is just like that home of yours: small and affordable.

Six gorgeous little 400-square-foot houses, each with full kitchens and bathroom, private bedroom with space for at least a queen-size bed, living/dining/kitchen that opens to an outdoor dining patio or terrace, and plenty of storage. Big enough to have a friend over. Just make sure you're in love with them first.
