Cottage Home Named LEED Home Power Builder
Holland, Mich., July 1, 2016 — Creating dream homes in idyllic settings along Lake Michigan, Cottage Home has remained true to its mission since 2008: Design and build every home to rigid standards of sustainability as well as quality, yielding a lakeside investment for generations to come.
Today, nine years and 31 LEED homes later, Cottage Home’s philosophy has not only won the hearts of customers, it has also gained national recognition. Cottage Home was recently named a LEED Home Power Builder, a designation that recognizes “an elite group of developers and builders who have exhibited an outstanding commitment to LEED and the green building movement within the residential sector.”
The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) as a way to provide standards for environmentally sustainable construction.
“Achieving national recognition for our team’s work is certainly an honor,” said Brian Bosgraaf, Cottage Home President and Designer. “Being designated a Power Builder speaks not so much to the number of homes we’ve built in the past 9 years, but more to the high percentage of those that meet or exceed LEED standards. We have remained true to our original philosophy of building comfort, quality and sustainability.”
A LEED home is awarded for designs that are healthier for homeowners. LEED homes use less energy, water and natural resources, produce less waste and offer improved air quality.
