The Cottage Home Difference

We do all the worK


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.
