Welcome to FirstDay Cottage

High Quality, All Wood House Kits

Build Yourself a Solid Future!

A FirstDay Cottage is a house kit with a unique building system designed specifically for people who want to build themselves a home. FirstDay Cottages require few tools, are tolerant to error and are strong and elegant. Building a FirstDay Cottage is a lot of work and takes a significant commitment, but once complete can earn you valuable sweat equity and a new home. FirstDay Cottage has been helping people build themselves a home for over 20 years and now has over 250 houses in more than 30 states and two foreign countries. We are now featuring our new designs for the Single-Story T house, which builds off all that we have learned about owner-built housing in the last 20 years of FirstDay Cottage.
