The Derbyshire has all the elements that make the English cottage a classic . This plan conveys the feeling of a country cottage with its typically English construction materials, and design. We have designed several versions of The Derbyshire. Each has the look of a cozy cottage with the benefits of a large floor plan and unique characteristics that lend to different sites and owner preferences be it a flat site, sloped site, or even the need for a detached garage or out-building to serve as a garage or work area. Some are reversed or flipped, to show how subtle variations can make a big difference.
In each, we have attempted to recreate the country charm of an English cottage in a new version suited for today's lifestyles. Design elements reminiscent of English country design such as exposed rafter tails, stone construction accented by heavy timbers and infill of brick or stucco echo the charm of another world. Steeply pitched roof lines and generous overhangs mimic construction techniques of the region years ago.
