A Country Cottage is our name for a Coach House when it is used as a dwelling, and therefore has to be built to comply with Part L building regulations as opposed to a building used for temporary occupation. The Cottage has developed through popular demand - we heard so many people exclaim "Can I live in that?" when they saw the Coach House, that it seemed an obvious development.
The buildings are designed to provide an attractive, eco friendly and low cost solution for dwellings in rural situations. The design is very flexible and a starter home can be built using as little as two bays, but any number of bays can be used to provide as much space as you wish. The bays are generally 6m deep and 3m wide, but variations are possible, as are L and T shaped etc. units.
The external timber cladding can be used horizontally in a similar way to the traditional barn type structures, or vertically which can create a more contemporary style. The cladding can also be replaced on any number of walls, with brick, stone etc. to fit the local vernacular.
