Tiny homes, guest cottages, cabins, and accessory dwelling units (ADUs) make a big impact in a small space. These plans are under 1000 square feet – smaller than a typical single family home – and there are many reasons why modern families are finding ADUs to be the perfect solution for lifestyle flexibility.
ADUs allow you to care for family and create community. Adding a guest cottage to your site provides you and your loved ones with independence and privacy while keeping everyone connected and safe. A carriage house or guest cottage can also be an excellent source of secondary rental income (if your zoning allows), either as a vacation rental or for a longer-term lease.
Good design is critical in small spaces, and a tiny home, cottage, or cabin with an open floor plan and plenty of light offers a fantastic, clutter-free lifestyle that feels cozy and complete.
