Classic Small Rustic Home


Charming classic small rustic home courtesy of the good folks at Architectural Designs What’s especially cool about this rustic home, is that you can get the house plans if you want them. And it’s a good plan too, with 1,240 sq. ft. total. We may do a house plan review on it at a later date because we think it’s an especially good design.

Little House Elevation
Good looking elevation.. If the house wasn’t hanging off the side of a cliff, I’d consider doing the bottom half in stone for less upkeep.

Small Living Room

Small living room (it’s only 15×13) but you have everything you need.  A comfy sofa, lounging chair, and fireplace with TV.  If I had to guess, I’d say those are hickory hardwood floors.

Small Kitchen



Totally modern kitchen with all the latest features.  Notice how they used two different types of wood finishes on the cabinets and bar cabinets?  Personally, I like that look.  Just adds a little interest without being too busy.  I swear I think we had the very same light pendants in our big house.  Seriously, go look!  We got the lights at Lowe’s.

Small Kitchen

Such a great open floor plan.  Plenty of room for a dining table to seat six.  If you build this house, I suggest you give the island an overhang so it will double as a bar.  It’s nice to hang out in the kitchen with the chef.  And when it’s just my husband and I, we sometimes like to eat at the bar.

Tiny Porch

Oh my gosh.. You know how much I’m crazy for a gorgeous view!  Pull up the rocking chair.. give me a good book, and I’m all set.  :)

Tiny Porch - Front View
Uhumm.. speaking of rocking chairs! Beautifully finished out home. Look at the quality.

Another shot of the view. Reminds me of North Carolina. I like how they thought of everything; even a spot for the outdoor grill. And that’s what small house living is all about.. having everything you need, but in an efficient manner.
