A great example of a European Cottage.

I recently received this link from a client in Alabama who built our Armand plan (from our Cottages portfolio) and it really turned out wonderful. A great example of how we work long distance with a client to help them achieve the right fit for their property. The homeowners really love that this home feels deceptively small from the outside, and so there’s that element of surprise when you enter into a large space.

    We are in the planning stages of building the Armansd,Ironically I have thought about some of the things this home owner has done i.e. stealing space from guestroom to make laundry room larger, screened in porch,etc.
    Would it be possible to see the floorplan of the first floor? I am thrilled to see the Armand in these pictures.
    One concern I had was the traffic flow through the familyroom making the room difficult to furnish and use.
    In any case your website continues to have practicle information. We likely be building two of your smaller homes.

    Love the exterior finish. What type of stone and accents were used on the alabama stone cottage house?

    Cindi,

    Thank you. We used a rough, tumbled brick that was mortar washed (a mortar, sand and water mixture). The stone was a mix of three types of stones gathered by our stonemasons. Stone above the doors and windows were the same stones, cut on site by the brickmasons.
