The General Store (264) is one of the most viewed homes in Flickr, now with over 50 floor plans and concepts to choose from.

The General Stores exterior was inspired by my love for “outside the box” homes. Recently, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time traveling between Colorado, Texas and Oklahoma seeing rural commercial buildings was my inspiration. Plus, it just looks cool…










This 264 sq ft floor plan has one large room plus Bath/Laundry in a simple and efficient building shape that still includes the “6 Essentials”.

#1 This efficient Kitchen has 7 cabinets, including one corner base cabinets “lazy Susan’s”  for loads of storage.










#2 Enough room for a full or queen Bed, but with it’s corner location, making it will be a bit more challenging.

#3 A compact ¾ Bath with corner shower, 24” vanity base cabinets and mirror medicine cabinets include a window for natural light and a more open feel.

#4 Storage areas include a separate coat and linen closet, under the bed and 7 kitchen cabinets.

#5 A stackable Washer/Dryer combo units fit nicely in the bath, but this area would also make a great storage closet if the unit is not needed.

#6 The General Store does have limited Room for our friends and family “must have” but the couch could make for a great second bed.

This single room configuration has both pros and cons, but we here at Cozy think it’s a great choice for the secluded getaway. granny flat, hunting lodge or guest house.It is just one of our many perfect little retreat options under 500 sq ft.
