My wife and I have been visiting the Outer Banks for over twenty-five years. We always dreamed about building our own home at the beach. We finally purchased a lot, and then spent a great deal of time researching builders located throughout the Outer Banks. Our search led us to Mike York owner of The Coastal Cottage. We chose Mike for many reasons. To begin with, The Coastal Cottage is a true Design/Build company. Mike surely did not disappoint. He worked with us from the beginning of the project to the end. In fact he continues to respond to any questions or concerns we have even after our house has been completed. During the building process, Mike was flexible in any changes to the our designs. Throughout the design process my wife obtained ideas from various homes on different websites. Mike was able to incorporate these ideas into our original home design. One other point I cannot stress enough. The quality of the material, and detailed workmanship performed by The Coastal Cottage is second to none. Our home was built as if Mike was building a home for his family.
