Here is my best explanation:

'small house' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'company chief ordered to get a' is the wordplay.
'chief' indicates taking the first letters.
'ordered' is an anagram indicator.
The first letter of 'company' is 'c'.
'to'+'get'+'a'='togeta'
'togeta' is an anagram of 'ottage'.
'c'+'ottage'='COTTAGE'
