House Plan Thursday: A Classy Commune… Coastal Living plan SL 358!

HousePlanTH IslandCottage SL358 sl

Island Cottage (SL-358) is an exclusive design for Southern Living by Historical Concepts, LLC and offered by Our Town Plans, LLC 

Island Cottage (SL-358) would be a gorgeous house nestled amongst mature trees… Somewhere nice and shady, fairly quiet, and if at all possible, near water! As we all grow older and the family dynamics change, this type of house could really make those times much better! If you look at the plan, everyone has their own space, including a screened porch! I love that! Then you have the shared spaces. Can you imagine, outdoor fires, cookouts and shared meals. This gives the younger people an opportunity to help out the older people… it also allows the older people to assist with the kids… It’s a unique plan because everyone truly has their own space to sit and read and be away from the crowd…

The porches are amazing. Some are screened, like the big one off of the Family Room… wow, you could open your door and not let any bugs in by having that screened porch! My only concern is that the kitchen needs to be larger. Especially for this many people… A large pantry would also be a necessity… This plan is 2578 square feet, so it’s not out of control big…What do you think?

Catch you back here tomorrow!

    i agree on the kitchen and one more thing..i love this plan but what does the front of the house look like??? i’ve looked and looked and can’t find the front elevation. i’m pretty sure the picture would be considered the rear elevation. right?


    1. My husband knows this plan very well, it’s one that we’ve loved for a long time. He said this IS THE FRONT elevation. The entrance is via the screened porch off the Family Room (when looking at the plans)… He said that it’s built at Spring Island (near Beaufort). He also said many homes are second and rental homes… so that may be worth checking out… check with the real estate office there and see if this house is available to look at. Friends of ours said they were very nice about it. If I find any other info I will let you know… b
