Small House Finalists in the HOWIES

By Dan Gregory

This attractive cabin is a finalist in the Small House category of's first annual Design Awards Program.

Meet some of the finalists in the Small House category of the HOWIES awards, such as Plan 831-3, shown above. The contemporary cabin packs a lot of living into 840 sq. ft. -- overlapping spaces, large windows, and easy outdoor connections make it feel larger than it is.

Plan 17-2450 uses a wrap-around front porch along with a rear grilling porch to create a feeling of spaciousness in a compact layout.

Plan 531-1 is a classic cottage with a very efficient layout, deftly packing 3 bedrooms and 3 baths into 1413 sq. ft.
