Clovis Cottage Home Programs

The City of Clovis – Cottage Home Program is a national award-winning program that offers residents an opportunity to construct one of the three streamlined plans on their property with a rear yard facing an alley.

The program was originally created to encourage infill residential development in the Old Town Clovis area, where many properties have access to alleys. Due to its early success, the Cottage Home Program has been made available to qualifying properties citywide


Three (3) plans, provided FREE of charge, have been developed to fit a variety of property configurations. The cottage homes, each less than 500 square feet in size, are intended to face onto alleys to promote revitalization while providing a unique pedestrian street environment and creating more housing in the highly desirable City of Clovis.

To date, there are 11 completed cottage homes and 9 issued permits.
