The Cottage, Small House or Cabin

Cottage house as seen here have been romanticized since the early fairy tales of Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel. They have a way of reminding us gingerbread houses. What is interesting is just how many styles they can come in.

What makes a cottage so distinctive from other some homes at one time was their dark thatched roofs. These homes were traditionally built by a waterfront and made out of logs or other natural materials. Also known as a cabin, they were used as a way of modest country living.
