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 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 granny 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.
