Sustainability with style

We are proud to be among the first merchant home builders to certify all of its homes under the Northwest Energy Star program (standards achieve a 15% energy cost savings over code). The Cottage Company® is also an active member of the Built Green program of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties. This innovative program's mission is to work in partnership to improve and protect the valuable natural features and environmental resources within King and Snohomish Counties, and to promote healthier, safer, & more sustainable new homes.

The Cottage Company® builds with higher quality, longer lasting, more durable materials, utilizing as many regionally produced materials as possible. During construction special care is taken to preserve mature landscaping and retain native top soils which are then highly amended to create our signature lush organic commons area gardens. All this speaks to our philosophy of living large, while leaving a small footprint.
