As first time homebuilders we were apprehensive and uneducated about the build process. We knew from our first phone conversation with Mike at The Coastal Cottage Company that he was the builder for us. From the start he went above and beyond expectations. He walked us through the whole process and worked hard to understand our requirements, taste and design ideas. Mike even went so far as to go out and look at building lots with us in advance to give us his professional opinion as to location and build ability. Not only is Mike an experienced builder but he is also an excellent designer. He was able to take our vision and ideas and design a house that fit perfectly on our lot and designed specifically to our requirements. Mike had real patience with us during this initial design phase as we had many changes, revisions and requests throughout the process. Having the builder as also the designer was an invaluable asset. He was able to make changes to his designs throughout the build process to make sure everything looked just right. Mike’s attention to detail along with his eye for design really made this the custom build that set him and his company apart from other builders. We are constantly amazed as we look around and see all of the custom design elements he was able to incorporate for us in our build. Mike knew we were working within a budget and worked really hard to make sure we were able to get the most from our investment. He worked countless hours going through design ideas and finishes, educating us on what the best options were. His use of technology to give us real time access to our budget and the progress of our build was incredible. We are so thankful that we chose Mike at The Coastal Cottage Company. The finished product is so much more than we could have hoped for. Thanks, Mike, for making our dreams a reality.
