Garage in a Cozy Home
This is actually a first for Cozy Home Plans, an attached garage!
One of the first questions people usually ask is “where are the garages?” Well, in all honesty… I have always felt that even a one car garage that’s 12’ x 24’ (288 sq ft) next to a Cozy Home might look a little silly. And still do actually… These floor plan concepts were inspired by a small carriage /coach house that was around 500 sq ft on Alex’s wonderful site http://www.tinyhousetalk.com/. While it was visually appealing and had the basics, it was lacking in other areas in my opinion. Hmmm, I wondered, could we incorporate my 6 must haves without breaking the square footage bank in my own little carriage /coach house. These Cozy Home concepts, that I have affectionately called the 70’s – 585 and the Top Hat – 525 was the result of this challenge. My 6 Must Haves.
#1 Kitchen/Dining… Check!
Some of the smallest eat in kitchens we’ve designed so far, but this one still has an adequate food prep area; 7 & 8 kitchen storage cabinets, a 24” cooking range, full size microwave, large refrigerator and a pantry in both.
#2 A good sized bed… Check!
The bedroom also offers more than enough room for a large dresser plus the bed is accessible from both sides. A comment that I read regularly that people like. By the way, 99% of all Cozy homes are rendered with a queen size bed.
#3 Ample bathroom/s with sufficient storage… Check!
There is not one, but 1 & 1/2 baths in these Cozy Homes. The main bath is large enough for a 5’ tub or shower in one and a spacious 42″ corner unit in the other and 1/2 baths down stairs.
#4 Storage… Check!
We have a kitchen with lots of cabinets; coat closet, stackable W/D closet, under the stairs storage, “step-in” closet in the bed room, home office built-in, and let’s not forget the one car garage for all your stuff!
#5 Enough space for a washer and dryer… Check!
Sorry, it just would not be a cozy home without one.
#6 Room for more than one person… Check!
With its two story design separating bed and living areas; mini home office in the kitchen, large private deck off the bedroom and garage… this Cozy Home floor plan offers co-habitation with the added bonus of separation.

As always, concepts will probably change when the architect stops laughing and starts asking me “what I was thinking”.
