Product Description

Currently, Sofia is the biggest building we offer. This rustic cottage has a typical gambled roof, which is most often found in the eastern part of the United States and Canada. The break in roof provides plenty head room in the loft space. This cottage is named after one of the most famous pin-up girls, Sophia Loren. Like Sophia, these cottage floor plans are larger than life yet with style and grace. All you have to do is to buy a our small cottage plans and start to build!

At your request I can modify the dimensions of this cottage.

Interesting and lovely. Impractical since no cabin or cottage design incorporated insulation of any sort. All these designs are for one or two seasons use only. Seems a shame.

Hi Alan,
It´s no problem to add the additional insulation if needed..the basic construction and the whole concept still remains the same.

Thank you for clarifying. I too am a bit curious about the cost of materials. Lumber for such a small footprint shouldn’t be this high. I love the design though. Very well done. Could I get this altered? I’m not in love with the roof.

Also, could you post a picture of the bathroom?

I suspect that estimated cost is calculating in things other than the basic construction such as appliances and other hardware. It’s a shame the replies here to questions are so few and far between.
