I am sure most of you if not all of you know what a cottage means an know how one looks like. Our knowledge may be inspired by our thoughts of a cottage in the beach where you used to hire when you have events or when you want to sleep for the night. In other words, it is a small house.
Homedit posted that the word “cottage” is derived from the medieval word “cotter”, meaning a person living in a small home in exchange for working the surrounding farmland for the landlord. By this definition, it often includes not only the house but the barn, outbuildings and anything else enclosed by the fence on the plot.
Then, the meaning of word has changed overtime to mean a petite house that resembles that of a cottage or hut-like house, one that is simple and often with one bedroom. Its use and meaning though vary from one place to another. While the cottages of Europe serve as dwellings, the cottages of America usually refer to a vacation home.
This small house that we are featuring today resembles a cottage though it looks so sophisticated because of its modern house design.
The floor area is only 40 square meters but the house itself is sitting on a 120 square meters lot. It looks so petite but it is actually furnished with all the amenities you need for a livable house.
This is how the inside looks like. To achieve a minimalist design in the interior, you must not put big furniture. Everything should be small and considering the size of the house, there should not be too many stuffs to put.
A sala set is enough in the living room with a TV installed on the wall. The dining table and chairs should also not too bulky to minimize the use of space. This floor design looks neat and great!
Just imagine a 40 square meters house with two bedrooms. You may not be able to put all the stuffs you want but at least you have a place to stay.
