Saltbox From Designer Cottages

From Designer Cottages, a distinguished subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, is the Saltbox model, an embodiment of classic design infused with modern sensibilities. Comprising of 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom within a compact 452 sq.ft., this tiny home boasts a remarkable blend of sophistication and coziness. Characterized by its panoramic 270-degree views and reimagined classic architecture, the Saltbox presents an elegant haven that encapsulates both simplicity and luxury.

Drawing inspiration from the timeless "lean-to" design, the Saltbox's floor plan is an ode to space optimization and style maximization. Embracing a minimalistic approach, the interior space is crafted to harmoniously intertwine form and function. The incorporation of premium features such as Summit Appliance appliances and Ply Gem aluminum-clad wood windows exemplifies the home's commitment to quality finishes.

Standout features of the Saltbox model include the expansive and energy-efficient Ply Gem French Doors, an innovative Summit Appliance combo washer & dryer, a tasteful quartz tub surround in the bathroom, and stainless steel Summit Appliance 24″ range, and 30” refrigerator. The living space is a panorama of natural light, thanks to the strategic placement of 3 walls of windows, providing an immersive 270-degree vista. The bedroom boasts an inviting 9’ 5” ceiling height, while the kitchen, living, and dining spaces exhibit ceiling slopes ranging from 9’ 6” to 11’ 0”, accommodating even a dining room table for up to 6 occupants.

Beyond the interior, the Saltbox model's exterior exudes charm with covered porches featuring ample overhangs, a premium metal roof, and a tastefully executed mix of vertical wood siding and horizontal board and batten lower body/water table. Inside, the aesthetic is elevated by the presence of beautiful 7” oak hardwood flooring and ceiling with tongue and groove detailing, alongside modern quartz countertops.

Further enhancing the home's efficiency and comfort are the energy-efficient Ply Gem aluminum clad windows and doors, an efficient space-saving tankless water heater, and a Mitsubishi Ductless mini-split system for climate control.

Noteworthy is the availability of Designer Cottages' tiny homes in select locations across the United States. Constructed with meticulous adherence to specific state and local codes, the homes undergo rigorous design approval to ensure alignment with final location specifications.

The construction process typically spans between 6 to 8 weeks, providing a streamlined transition from vision to realization for those aspiring for a unique, compact living experience.
