We do all the worK
A PREMIERE EXPERIENCE
This custom scope of work has been developed from our experience building on the Lakeshore and building to the highest efficiency and durability standards in one of the most unforgiving climates in the world. Developing and refining systems that can provide comfort in the heat and humidity of the summer and the cold dry condition of the winter. Michigan has 4 extreme seasons that are all amplified on the Lakeshore. We understand the building science, making homes efficient, durable, comfortable, and healthy. There is minimum code, there is general industry practice, and beyond all of that there is the Cottage Home difference. This unique scope has been developed out of planning, building, registering, and rating more than 30 LEED homes, and more than one hundred custom builds on Lake Michigan over the last 20 years. That’s where we come in.
What Our Clients Say
“Our experience during the design and build phases of our new home has been nothing short of excellent. Not only has the Cottage Home staff responded to all our requests and needs, but also they have anticipated features that they thought might be important to us. We truly feel as if they are building a home they would want to live in. Furthermore, our home was built on time and on budget. Had we known what we know now about Cottage Home back when we first started looking at lakefront property, we wouldn’t have had any apprehension building a custom home.”
“Through their design and build process, they took our narrative and created a home we are truly proud to call the Odland Beach House. From the towering high ceilings of the lake room to the sweeping views of Lake Michigan, they captured exactly what we had been hoping and dreaming to achieve. The creativity, attention to detail, and quality is exceptional and in our judgment, unequaled in the building industry. The Cottage Home brand is more than an external marketing or advertising initiative…it is a way of life for the entire team led by Brian Bosgraaf and perfected by his team.”
“We are absolutely pleased with our new cottage. The home is just beautiful and has far exceeded our expectations. . . It has such a comfortable feeling and I know we will have such wonderful memories there. You have really made a dream come true for our family … thank you so much for everything you have done. Everyone has been wonderful to work with and this has been one of the best experiences we have ever had!”
