Chattel House Plans

Coming Soon…

Our chattel house plans showcase how a small space can be utilized to its maximum potential. We use adequately sized windows, doors, high ceilings or lofts, built-in closets and outdoor spaces to make the home effective and efficient. All of our plans are under 1,000 square feet in interior space and are designed for smaller lots.

  • Front Perspective

We can also prepare custom chattel house plans based on your needs. These plans can be customised to create a small studio, a vacation cottage or a small home dwelling all with the historic design of the chattel house. Our versatile designs merge modern functionalities, amenities and sustainable attributes with the island flair of this iconic structure.

Please note that customised plans may take up to six weeks to complete based on the complexity of the design. All customised plans can be purchased separately from the supplementary plans listed above.
