We love wood houses, they feel so natural, so back to earth. As we’ve amassed a variety of awesome design ideas that are perfect for small wooden homes or cottages we want to share them with you. Maybe you’ll see something you’d like to make your own! If you’re building yourself or working with an architect on your small wood home or cottage project, you need to decide on how much square footage of living space you’ll need depending on your family size and what you can afford. Price considering, building homes with wood is usually more affordable than with other construction materials, and it’s a great choice especially when designing a small cottage. Wood designs allow you to be creative and implement many desirable features with ease.

Small wooden home architecture has been greatly enabled by the latest technological innovations. Today, there are many structural wood types to choose from when building a new home but your final choices will depend on your design and your budget, with local woods being the most affordable.

This home cantilevers over the steep slope. It has an open layout floor plan and a big loft upstairs. Nice and earthy design.




The woodwork in this home is amazing. And the interior is so cozy.



The fireplace is also unordinary, just like the house.
