    Vernacular Cottage - SL-101

    Climate has always exerted a powerful influence on the architecture of the South. Before the advent of air conditioning, even the simplest houses were constructed with techniques that took heat and humidity into account. This raised cottage, designed by Dean Winesett, of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, applies many of these time- honored, common-sense solutions to the problems of living comfortably in the South. Inspired by raised cottages in Southern coastal areas and by the cozy farmhouses of the interior South, the house's appealing vernacular style could work in a variety of locations. Our Vernacular Cottage plan features a characteristic double-pitched roof. The hipped portion of the roof covers spacious galleries on three sides of the house. These galleries, or porches, once common features of Southern houses, serve as cool, transitional spaces between outdoors and indoors. more

    All Seasons House - SL-119

    With the extremes of climate found in many parts of the South, passive cooling is just as important to a homeowner as is passive solar heating. This house plan, suitable for weekend, vacation, or retirement use, offers an adaptable design from winter to summer. It can be cooled by passive means for much of the warm season. Because it is basically a house within a house, the design lends itself to staged construction. The basic living area at the center may be built first, with perimeter spaces added as time and budget permit. The perimeter spaces are used primarily as extensions of their adjoining rooms in summer, creating a screened living area at virtually every exposure of the house. In winter, heating loads are reduced by closing off the perimeter spaces. The basic plan is a 28- x 40-foot rectangle that contains the major interior spaces. An 8-foot perimeter area consists of porches and, on the southern exposure, prefabricated greenhouses, which act both as a home for plants and as solar collectors. The plan contains about 1,300 square feet of heated space, with almost 1,100 square feet of porches. The plan may be built with either full perimeter porches or a combination of porch and greenhouse areas. An alternate plan, included with the working drawings, provides for two small bedrooms on the main floor with a playroom between. The house was designed by Mike Funderburk of Sunshelter in Raleigh. more

    Our Gulf Coast Cottage - SL-131

    A curving balustrade leads guests up to the shady gallery of our Gulf Coast Cottage. Raised high on brick piers to keep its owners cool and dry, this cottage attractively reminds you of the traditional Lowcountry homes of the South. A high hipped roof covers the gallery that wraps three sides of the house. The broad, deep gallery forms a functional cool zone around the front of the house and works with transomed double doors to help ventilate the house naturally. The plan includes 3 bedrooms and 21/2 baths in approximately 2,500 square feet of heated space. It offers the formality typical of older Southern homes and a semiopen floor plan often associated with today's houses. For example, the living room, center hall, and dining room may be used separately or as one large room for entertaining. Wide cased openings create one spacious sweep of space, while the perimeter gallery affords spillover space for parties. Ceiling heights are 10 feet throughout the house. The working plans for the cottage include a separate double garage with a similar look. Our Gulf Coast Cottage was designed by William H. Phillips, Jr., of Dauphin Island, Alabama. more
