For old cottage fans......

Not to imply that any of YOU are old; these are old cottages LOL! I thought this was an interesting link of 8 old cottages. If you click on a cottage, about 3/4 the way down there is a link for a pdf of the cottage.

Here is a link that might be useful: Old cottage plans

Those were fun! Thanks, flgargoyle. I was a bit surprised at the one in Pensacola, though. Wouldn't have thought it would have lasted so long in this brutal climate.

I liked the look of one in Mobile. I wonder if ML has ever seen it?

Moccossain, have you seen that cottage?

I've seen it years ago now, haven't been downtown in a very long time. The area was not in good shape in those days, probably around the time they photographed it for the survey. Joachim Street is being restored a lot these days. I hope this house is kept alive.

Mobile is a city of old homes downtown, and some neighborhoods have already gone through a renaissance by yuppy families. Like my nephew did with a house near the Garden District in downtown New Orleans. Even Katrina could not pry him loose from his home on Bordeaux Street.

Thanks for the link Jay. It has opened a new avenue of old house adventuring.
