Many people see art as something with many barriers to entry – maybe the materials are expensive, maybe you don’t have the space, or maybe you think it’s difficult, requiring many specialized tools.

What makes a cottage so distinctive from other small homes is its dark thatched roof, and the way it envelops the cottage like melted cheese. (funny how cottage cheese looks nothing like this) These homes were traditionally built by a waterfront and made out of logs or other natural materials.

So the next time you stay in a cottage estate for your summer vacation, remember who inspired you!

Okay, silliness aside, these are seriously cool.
