Jack Preston Wood Garden House Designs are intended to create a feeling of warmth and insulation from the stress of the world and the clutter of rabid materialism.

Consider the benefits of simplicity when it comes to planning your life.  Garden Homes are designed to be symmetrically proportional dwellings that minimize excess on the material level and maximize experience on the emotional level.  Moving into a garden house planned by our design team is like moving into your own private Eden.  These houses are designed to create human living space right in the heart of Nature’s beauty.  It is like moving into a new form of your own private Eden, surrounded by four walls that blend harmoniously into surrounding vegetation, trees, and flower beds.


Part of the charm and ambience of our garden houses is the less is more approach we take to square footage.

18th Century British Author Edmund Burke believed that our concepts of beauty were rooted in our perceptions of the diminutive.  It seems that we find comfort in things that do not overwhelm our senses, and simple designs that create within us a sense of balance and proportion when we perceive them.  Our garden home plans have a bit of Burke’s idealism sketched into their blue prints.  None of them are so large as to overwhelm you with the feeling of too much space, nor will they create a vacuum that excessive numbers of guests and relatives will attempt to continually fill.


The point is to give you just what you need for a sense of peace and a feeling of harmony between yourself and your surroundings.


Smaller garden home plans offer between 898 sq. feet to 1500 sq. feet of living space.

Couples without children tend to favor these smaller homes because they are just right for entertaining best friends, next door neighbors, and occasionally visiting parents.  At the same time, the smaller “cottage effect” politely discourages overly exuberant guests from planning parties in your garden home.  Retired people most definitely appreciate the quiet aloofness such a home creates for them.


Larger models range from 1500 sq. feet all the way up to 2,079 sq. feet.

Couples with two or three children can easily find enough room to live and to grow in these larger garden homes.  Planned with small families in mind, many of these designs offer a downstairs master suite for the parents and multiple upstairs bedrooms for children or relatives.  Our largest garden home plan offers an upstairs loft, where you can plant a roof garden, grow herbs, or look down on the flowers and foliage growing just below around the Porte Cochere entrance to your garage.


Garden House Plans divide public living space from private living space so every person in the home has both room to mingle and their own private place to retreat.

Public living space offers immediate access to dining, small gatherings, and quiet moments on the couch.

Most garden home plans feature a kitchen and dining area immediately adjacent or very near to the ground-floor garage.  This allows you to step from your car straight to the dinner table after a long day at the office.  The living room is always close by so you can set the dishwasher and relax for the evening with a book or in front of your favorite movie
