Our Sugarberry Cottage Slighlty Modified House Plans
The square footage of our house is 2,076. For a family of 5, sometimes 6 (when are oldest visits from college), this may seem small. Oddly as it may sound, I craved an even smaller footprint then this. I wanted to spend my time on activities that I enjoy and not on cleaning and maintaining a large home. This house plan was appealing for many reasons. The upstairs bedrooms were very large. Putting two kids together without being cramped was a win.
Designing your own home means you can make it completely to your liking. Say closet space or pantry size is important to you and you’re willing to sacrifice space in other areas, then you can create that with your architect or designer.
We added a three-car garage attached to the house via an outdoor breezeway. Above the garage is an unfinished area of 860 square feet which can be later converted into a guest house or mother-in-law suite.
