The Cottage Series developed from a collaboration between San Juan Islands-based Studio 29  and Seattle prefab manufacturer, Method Homes . Studio 29 was trying to come up with a more sustainable way to build houses for its clients and felt that prefab was the way to go, so they partnered up with Method and designed this craftsman-inspired line. The series features six customizable home plans ranging from 1,436 to 2,265 square feet with anywhere from two to four bedrooms. Each home features generous front porches and decks, loft-style sleeping spaces, balconies, wood stoves, optional master craftsman built-ins and detailing and additional sustainable features like solar panels .
The Doe Bay Cottage is a 1,484 sq ft custom home based on Plan 1  that contains two bedrooms, two sleeping lofts, and two bathrooms. As for add-ons, the home features bamboo flooring, hydronic radiant heating, solar thermal collectors, and a solar PV system on the back roof. In addition, it features a detached ADU, which is used as a boat house. Homes in the Cottage Series start at $222,600 and go up to $498,000 for a two-story, four bedroom custom home. This series is great for those looking for a high-performance and quality-built home, but who aren’t interested in modern lines and floor-to-ceiling glass walls.
