Backroad Home: Simple Country Designs of Cottages, Cabins, Barns, Stables, Garages and Garden Sheds with Sources for Blueprints, Kits, Building Accessories, Catalogs and Guide Books

If you're dreaming of moving to the country, retiring to a smaller house or just getting away from big home mortgage and maintenance costs, this is a book that you should take a look at. It's a sourcebook and guide to the best small, simple, inexpensive and easy-to-maintain country homes. Seventeen of America's best country architects and designers contributed 86 plans of vernacular-style cottages, cabins, backyard barns, garages and garden sheds. Home sizes range from just over 2,000 square feet for a traditional New England farmhouse and a gracious Southern cottage with a wrap-around porch, to just 144 square feet for a tiny getaway cabin. Addresses, phone numbers and website information will help you reach any of the designers directly to order construction blueprints or to see additional home designs.
