When your nest is empty, the family home may feel a bit too large for two people. A smaller place like this guest house could be the answer. Created specifically for the comfort of visiting family and friends, it sits a stone’s throw away from the main residence, surrounded by lush gardens and tall trees. The setting is peaceful and quiet. The house, custom designed by Eric Shephard Architects, is just 600 square feet. But it’s big enough for two and makes such effective use of space, it’s perfect inspiration for anyone thinking about downsizing.
All in all, a darling little house . . . and entirely livable.
Tom McDonald says
We are retiring and really like the 600 square foot guest house for our small lake lot. Can we buy a set of plans that includes the HVAC design?
I wish I could help you, but you would need to contact the architect about house plans.
I fell in love with Shephard Architects “classic farmhouse with Tudor roots.” I would love to build this house, but I don’t know where to find the house plan. Can you help me?
If you’re interested in the “classic farmhouse with Tudor roots,” you should contact Shepard Architects. They would have more information than I do about the house.
