You Have a vision, we make it happen
Why Cottage Home
We are a team of visionaries who bring our love of fine design and lakeshore living to each project. Our goal is to design and build beautiful homes for families to get away and recharge, relax, and reconnect, all without interrupting your busy schedule.
A Premier Experience
We have over one hundred custom builds and 20 years of experience designing and constructing homes that can withstand Michigan’s extreme seasons. Our homes are built to the highest efficiency and durability standards to keep you comfortable through the heat and humidity of Michigan summers and the bitter cold of winter. We go far beyond codes and general industry practices to build you a home that’s efficient, durable and comfortable. That’s the Cottage Home difference.
Unlike other builders, we offer a fixed price and guaranteed completion dates so there are no unpleasant surprises at the end of our build. But just because your home is done doesn’t mean we are. We provide a variety of services to help you get the most out of your new home even after moving in.
