The Purpose of this Website

This Site provides the Do-It-Yourself Builder with the tools to Permit & Build a Beautiful & Functional Backyard Cottage.   Using our Building Plans, Engineering Documentation and Material Lists the DIY Builder is guided through the often complex permitting and construction process. 

Who We Are

The people behind this Website have been designing, permitting, and building traditional residential structures for well over 40 years.  They have created everything from Victorian Mansions to the Tiniest Caribbean Cottage. 

Their knowledge of modern codes, construction procedures and estimating has been applied to the humble Backyard Cottage exclusively for this Website.  The plans we offer on the site can empower the DIY Builder to create his or her own Guest Cottage, Home Office, Man Cave or whatever use he can imagine.
