This charming little cottage possesses a captivating roof design, just as captivating from the interior as from a distance. The Cross Gable roof abounds with headroom and is a stylish addition to any property. Imagine this modern design perched among flowers and trees in your garden or catching the sun-shining glimmer off your pool. This design could have any number of uses, from a pool house, to a hot tub enclosure, as a screen room, or even a home office. Customize your building with a number of siding and roofing options, or a hand-blown glass roundel window to add some flair.
Offered as frame only kits, complete pre-cut kits, or step-by-step plans nationwide, our outdoor post and beam cottage and tiny house solutions give you the extra room you need for convenient and orderly storage or a corner garden office. If you live within our Northeast delivery area, consider purchasing a design fully assembled and delivered to your prepared site. Keep your lawn furniture, kids’ toys, and bicycles within easy reach in summer, yet safely tucked away during the winter. Maintain a stockpile of household supplies or a stash of non-perishable foods to cut down on shopping trips or create the perfectly quiet nook to read while enjoying a breeze through the windows.
