Welcome to The Cottages!
On behalf of everyone at The Cottage Building Company, we warmly welcome you and thank you for visiting our website, TheCottagesNC.com. We invite you to visit our custom cottage communities: The Cottages at Ocean Isle, The Cottages at RiverLights, and The Cottages at Brunswick Forest.
The Cottages concept began as our dream: To build a community of custom, craftsman-style cottages that will stand the test of time, create connectedness to one’s neighbors, encourage harmony with nature, and enrich one’s sense of well-being through an efficient, carefree, coastal lifestyle. Since our dream began, nearly 10 years ago, we are humbled and honored to find ourselves today as the leading custom cottage builder in North Carolina.
We lead because we continue to listen and learn from our customers. Our commitment is, and has always been, to customize each and every part of one’s cottage to fit each and every cottage owner’s needs and dreams. From choosing the initial floor plan, finishes, and fixtures; to creating customized rooms and features; to ensuring the entire construction process goes as planned. Your cottage will be everything you desire for today, tomorrow and the years to come.
During your tour of our online picture galleries and your visits to our communities, take note of the quality, exacting materials, details and the time that we put into building our cottages.
