A Cottage Home is a custom home. To begin the design process, Brian will spend time with you, at a convenient place, learning about your current and future home needs. He will learn about your space requirements, privacy needs, lifestyle and hobbies and if applicable, the children’s or grandchildren’s needs. He will of course take into consideration the home site and how to maximize views and enhance the property with your future home.
Once we have a home design that you love, we’ll put together a design estimate, which turns into your fixed price contract. In other words, you’ll know exactly how much it will cost build the home before we begin. Having a fixed price and guaranteed completion dates are two foundational principles that separate the Cottage Home team from the others. It’s also why our clients can call our building process “fun”.
Speaking of fun, we promise a great experience making selections for the interior of your home as well. Chances are, you have years worth of magazine clippings, Pinterest and Houzz pins of all your ideas. Bring them in! Our interior designers will make sure your dreams are made reality. Need help with some ideas? Our years of experience in award-winning homes might just present some options for your new place. No matter the degree of our professional assistance you’d like, we are excited to help with everything from selections, to furniture and decor recommendations. We have helped furnish many homes we’ve built.
A Cottage Home residence incorporates many smart home designs, sustainable technologies and construction elements to insure maximum energy conservation and improve the health and comfort of homeowners. Adhering to LEED® standards or Energy Star recommendations can mean years of lower energy costs, less waste and improved comfort. Sustainable living and building green isn’t a niche market anymore, it has become a hallmark of responsible homebuilders and homeowners alike.
