This charming little cottage was designed as a simple four season cottage to fit a modest budget. This cottage makes the perfect tiny house. It is designed with aesthetic and space saving exposed Post & Beam framing. The living space and the bedroom are separated by a wall complete with a space-saving pocket door.

The queen sized bedroom has a private bathroom with a shower and a toilet. The living space has plenty of room for a sofa across from the kitchenette. The kitchenette features a beautiful, live edge slab counter, convenient cabinet storage space, and a stainless steel kitchen sink with a greywater system.

This post and beam cabin design incorporate fiberglass and foam foil board insulation covered by pine shiplap sheathing while still exposing the post and beam structure providing the classic rustic aesthetic.

Rugged post and beam techniques passed down through the centuries are used to construct this durable delightful dwelling, reminiscent of old New England. All Jamaica Cottage Shop products are built from finest Vermont lumber and handcrafted for long life and durability and proven to stand the test of time and strength. Click here for more info.
