What Defines  
"The Comfortable 
Cottage" 
Of Handcrafting & Design?

The Comfortable Cottage is dedicated to the love of Handcrafting & Design.

We want to present Cottage Styles of today and yesterday, through the Handcrafting Designs & techniques that related to their genre and defined them in the past and in the present.

Let's call them 'Crafty Cottage Styles' & 'Crafty Cottage Designs and introduce them through Handcrafting Designs & techniques that befit their character.

The Comfortable Cottage itself, is the quintessential small house that evokes a magical curiosity; exciting our spirit with a warmth and charm that stimulates creativity.

It can be a cottage you live in or work in and it is, if you are lucky enough to be crafting in one, a place of refuge that is filled with handcrafted items both decorative and useful.

A cottage that is  simple and life enhancing when designed in your own unique style.

The Cottage Crafting Of Yesteryear


Down through time the basic shack evolved to a more liveable, modest abode consisting of one or two rooms; a hearth and just a few windows.

Not much decorating to do here, life was simple and so was the style of the comfortable cottage and what it was fashioned out of. With a serious lack of materials on hand the imaginative, creative mind blossomed.

Usually built from nature's bounty, such as thatch and mud, a small house of yesteryear could still be made quite comfortable.

Crafting by hand became an integral part of life; everything from tools to toys were handmade and people created useful items as they became necessary.

Then through their efforts and the wages of time, the cottage became a thing of dreams, steeped in history.

Whether it be yesterday or today a cottage is still basically one or two rooms, just a few windows and maybe a hearth; so glad we now have modern plumbing and heat. How wonderful is that?
