Why Cottage?

Unending Quality
Your house isn't just another sale to us, it's your dream home. And we build every home to highest level of excellence possible. If vendors or finishes don't fit our standards we find better ones, period.

Why Cottage?

Timeless Design
We take a lot of pride in the details - it's what sets a Cottage Home apart from others. Every finish is distinctly chosen based on current design trends and contemporary styles, but is picked to look (and function) good for generations.

Why Cottage?

Above & Beyond
Not only do all Cottage Homes have hours of refined aesthetic choices built into them, but we also extend our interior design services to you even after we hand over the keys. From color choices to landscaping to furniture selection, we can help make your home beautiful.

Why Cottage?

The personal Touch
When you buy a Cottage Home, you deal directly with those responsible for building and designing your home. No "bait and switch", no sales pitches, just a personal touch and guaranteed quality. Bill is personally involved in every project to ensure that quality craftsmanship.
At Cottage we focus on what our client wants and needs are, then surpass those expectations. We understand that many builders offer dream homes but we want to offer something more than just sticks and bricks—we build your dream lifestyle. We believe that when you combine timeless design, all the comforts of casual Florida living, and high-quality craftsmanship you get more than a home. We design and build truly custom homes that your family can enjoy for generations, all while making the home-building process as personal and enjoyable as possible.

Bill & Liz began Cottage Home Company with a burning desire to create a different kind of Custom Homebuilding Company, one that was based on a real passion for good design and focused on how families really live in their homes today. The goal was neither to be the biggest builder, nor to brag about how many closings they had per year. Instead, their goal was really simple –

“Create beautiful, inspiring places for families to live, places we could be proud to say we built.”

This simple goal drives their intense passion every single day.

Cottage Home Company prides itself on the principle of “right sized design.” Whether it is a 1700 square foot Cottage or a 5000 square foot Estate Home, every square foot in a design has a purpose in relation to how each client lives. Gone are the days of wasted space or rooms we don’t actually ever use.

Cottage Home Company is very well versed in the latest trends of architecture and interior design. Our homes look different, feel different and live different inside and out.

Bill spent over 17 years with large residential building companies and community developers before starting his company. Most recently, he served as Vice President–Operations at The St. Joe Company in Jacksonville, FL. He has been responsible for the oversight of the building of thousands of homes in the state of Florida. His intense focus on operations and customer satisfaction has helped communities such as Weston, FL garner numerous awards over the years.

He is a hands-on owner, taking pride in making frequent visits to every jobsite and engages with each customer through the homebuilding experience.

Bill & Liz are long time residents of St. Johns County and live in Palencia with their children Jordan and Madison, along with french bulldog Rosie and Westie Lilly.
