"All Dressed Up And Priced to Go" - Coscan in the 1990s

The following designs were built by Coscan in the 1990s in the Orleans neighbourhood of Fallingbrook and in the Kanata neighbourhoods of Briarbrook and Bridlewood. Four collections are shown below, The Masters Collection, The ForestWood Collection, the Premier Collection, and the Windsor Collection. The lot widths (and the house sizes, in many cases) increase with each collection of plans. Coscan was quite prolific with building a wide variety of designs in the 1990s and I will do a follow up post (or two) with the remaining plans from the 1990s.  v   The Masters Collection of houses presented below are in many ways a continuation of the early Tempo Collection, and some of the plans are updates of older designs. All of the designs are under 2,200 square feet.  The houses are characterized by protruding two-car garages, common in narrow detached house designs at the time, yet some of the smallest designs have a one-car garage.
