Vermont Cottage A 4-Season Plans
Vermont Cottage A DIY Building Plans
The Vermont Cottage Option A Living is a versatile design with a main living space and a full-length bearing wall porch. It is built with a 4×4 hemlock lumber frame and rough sawn pine siding and trim, using post and beam construction techniques. Our insulated living versions use exterior rigid foam insulation that keeps the rough-cut frame visible in the interior for a unique refined rustic feel. The flor and ceiling are insulated with fiberglass insulation or your choice of alternate insulation options. Plumbing and electric can be incorporated for a year-round tiny cabin. Partition walls can be built as needed to separate the space as needed for things such as a dry toilet. High ceilings give the cabin a airy feel that seems much more than the actual dimensions. The loft provides additional storage or sleeping arrangements, while the loft window allows a ventilating breeze to flow through. There are many siding choices that will further customize the cottage to fit your vision., such as clapboard, log cabin siding, cedar shingles, just to list a few.
Our plans provide easy to follow instructions on assembling your own diy cottage kit, with color coded cutlist that identifies each part and what the lumber species is and dimensions and angles to cut to. Based on our CAD models the plans highlight each part as it is installed in a 3d drawing view. Key dimensions are called out to assist in keeping the build on track. Different foundation options are shown and how to prepare the site for the building. A material shopping list is included to get everything you will need in rough lengths. This design can be built as shown or customized to fit your aesthetic or budget, with extra windows or doors. Another feature of our plans is that they include any help needed from our tech support team to walk you through any questions you may have regarding building the cabin or tiny house.
