  • Do you know anyone who lives...

    ... in a property called Oak Cottage?

    I've just made a housesign for my book as a step-by-step guide and used that name on the sign. Now I'm wondering if it's a particularly common name so I can work out if I'm ever likely to sell the sign at a craft fair? I'll use the sign as a demonstration piece to show what I can make for commissions, but I wonder whether someone will ever come up to me and go "oooh, that's the name of my house, how much is that?"

      I don't know anyone who lives in a house with a name unless you include farms, in which case its called farm not cottage, or its something in Welsh as most farmers our family knows are in Wales.

        I would think there's quite a few Oak Cottages around the country.

        Rose Cottage is a very common one too, if you do sell Oak Cottage, and need to make another display plaque. Or maybe Oak Tree Cottage

          I don't know of an Oak Cottage near here but if you do a farm name the most common names are Hill Farm, Manor Farm or Home farm.
          This may interest you.

            There's an Oak Cottage in the village where I live (not my house). There are very few houses with numbers in this village, they're nearly all named and we can't be the only village in the country like that.

            I'm sure it would sell eventually, it just might take a few craft fairs before the right person spots it.

              Either that or I'll be Googling every Oak Cottage in the country and writing to them...

                      But you can't change the name of Beady Boudoir on Beady Boulevard, it suits you too much already!!
