Home Plan for a Wheelhouse Cottage

If a slightly nautical design is what you want for your weekend escape, take a look at this cottage plan from Discovery Dream Homes. It reminds onlookers of a ship’s wheelhouse, the enclosed area where one would steer a ship. It has 360° views from the observatory, a square shape, and you can even add a ship’s wheel on the balcony to complete the look. The round window on the front of the cottage is a nod to a ship’s wheel and adds a little whimsy to the simple straight lines of the rest of the place.

The Wheelhouse features traditional pine timber-framing that forms the entire structure, walls made of R30 Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), and a R38 SIP roof. A woodstove provides the warmth needed on cold winter nights. On warm summer nights, special features keep the cottage cool like large overhangs on the upper floor, tinted windows and the ability to open every window in the cottage to allow a cross breeze no matter which way the wind is blowing.
