Our Services

We build custom cottage homes and intimate cottage communities. Whether it’s within our Pocket Neighborhoods or on your own lot, we look forward to working with you to build a home to celebrate everyday life and connections.

Homes Designed for Everyday Life.

We offer numerous different Ross Chapin home designs – planned to maximize every square inch of living space, and built out of sustainable materials that maintain their strength and quality. From the colorful exterior paint and private flowerboxes to the custom built-ins and detailed design, each home is unique to its homeowners.

Pocket Neighborhoods

Designed in collaboration with renowned architect Ross Chapin, community is at the heart of our Pocket Neighborhoods. Each pocket of homes is intimately nestled along gardens, woodlands, or an open courtyard space. Whether it’s walking your dog along the community greens or sipping tea on the front porch, you’ll find that these daily interactions with your neighbors build lasting relationships.

“Quality construction was extremely important to me. I put some money I inherited from my father into my home and I needed to know that he would approve of the construction of the home as he felt that so many builders just make homes look good on the outside but inside are poorly constructed. I have no doubt my father would be over-the-moon pleased with my home—inside and out!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you build a cottage home off-site?

Yes, we are happy to build a custom cottage home on your lot. To discuss the building process further we recommend scheduling an introductory meeting with our builder, Casey Land.

Can you make changes to a base cottage floorplan?

Our homes are designed by Ross Chapin, renowned architect
and author of Pocket Neighborhoods. We have modified his base plans to incorporate additional upgrades in build quality and design (ie. attached garages, basements, etc.)

Additional modifications are made by a local architect, Amandia Stanfield.

How long does it take to build a home?

The goal construction timeline to build a base home is 113 work days. The schedule begins once digging on the designated homesite commences, not upon signing the contract. Please note, the weather, craftsman availability, and COVID19 are all factors that play into timing. Modifications to the design of a home plan or to the Base Home Program may also impact the timeline.
