The Porter Cottage

The Porter cottage makes the most of its unwieldy site. The cottage was sited as close to the water as legally allowed to take advantage of the views and far enough away from the graywater leach field where the soil is deep enough to allow for proper run off. The screen porch was angled to capture direct southern exposure for the solar panels.

    I’d also love to see the plans, by far the most appealing small space. Brilliant.

    I love this house. Wouldn’t mind building it down south real soon. It’s got the room, and the space and the beauty

    I’ve been looking for. Will stay tuned to you.
