Presents twenty-five cottages suited to today's technological lifestyle that showcase the modern take on ten classic design strategies.

The mere thought of "cottage" puts the mind at ease, as a cottage is where life is simple, comforting, and true. Cottages are an informal, often hardy subset of small houses, generally possessing a visceral grab on homeowners' imaginations.

The New Cottage explores how our favorite home is changing to suit living today. Even in the face of technology's expanding scope and speed, and the resulting nearly ubiquitous reach of social media, today's new cottage appeals to our increasing need to balance transience and durability, togetherness and solitude, the high tech and the home spun.

  • Ten design strategies that characterize captivating cottages are introduced.
  • 25 case study examples showcase today's updated take on the classic cottage, with visual icons throughout to serve as a reminder of which strategies are in use where.

"The New Cottage will empower readers to execute classic cottage designs for a modern way of living. Ten design strategies are eloquently supported by 25 inspiring projects that bring architect Katie Hutchison's accessible and informative design insight to life. The homes in this book will undoubtedly have you dreaming of building your very own cottage. Go and do it with confidence with The New Cottage as your guide." --Rob Yagid, Editorial Director "Fine Homebuilding magazine " "If you are a Not So Big House fan, or an admirer of all things right-sized, you will love fellow architect Katie Hutchison's latest book, The New Cottage. It's filled with inspiration for a smaller and simpler but decidedly more delightful way of living than most larger homes allow. Katie explains, via ten simple design characteristics, what it is that makes each of the heart-winning abodes 'sing'. And sing they do! I will be pouring over my own copy for many years to come. I hope you'll join me in adding this delightful book to your library as well." --Sarah Susanka "Architect and author of The Not So Big House series and the Not So Big Life "
