Technically speaking, the average “rustic” home is similar in style and materials (generally) to a log cabin. But that does not mean that you cannot have all of the modern or usual amenities. There is no reason why you cannot build your rustic home with or without an attached garage.

Does a rustic style house usually come with a garage? 

Again, it depends on the location and the home itself. Often, a “rustic” home is built in a remote location, and few people would want to live without a car after the year 1915. So, most will come with a garage or have space to build one.

Can you build a rustic style house on a narrow lot? 

Rustic style homes can be built in any shape or size. If your home is too “rustic” you may run into trouble from busybodies in the neighborhood. But that doesn’t mean that you cannot build your rustic home the way you like.

Can this style be built on a wide lot?

One of the most classic types of rustic home is the farmhouse style home. This is traditionally a long house, with the broad side facing the street. It is a simple style and certainly in keeping with the rustic theme. These are ideal for building on a wide lot.

Can rustic style homes be built on a sloping lot?

With the right foundation, you can build any style of home you like on a sloping lot. In such a scenario, you will not be as concerned about the style of home as you are about the structural integrity of the foundation you build it on.

A rustic home can have a basement if you wish. In most cases, it would take the form of a root cellar, but there is no reason to be constrained by tradition in this case if you are building your own home.

Does this style of house ever come with a bonus room?

It would be rare for a rustic home to have such a room but there is no reason one cannot be built on, during, or after initial construction.

Porches are common and highly desirable on any home, no less a rustic home.

What types of roof does rustic style house typically have?
