Our History

The Cottage Company is a family run business owned by myself and my wife, Elizabeth.We live in Lake Placid where we moved to from Hollywood, Florida in 2005 to raise our 6 children. We greatly appreciate the charm of Lake Placid and the surrounding area and are happily raising our children in the Lake Placid community. Educated as an Architect and holding a Professional Architecture Degree I have been in the architecture and construction industry for over 20 years.  I received my Florida State Certified General Contractor license in 1995 and started Constructure, Inc. in the South Florida area. 

Our Vision

For nearly 15 years my company over saw the construction of every facet of commercial and residential types of construction, including multimillion dollar houses and, most recently the Ferrari showroom in Ft. Lauderdale. We have won numerous awards for craftsmanship from our peer groups, including the “Most Outstanding Craftsmanship For A Residential Project 2002”, for all of South Florida. My wife and I started our new company, The Cottage Company, in 2009 to focus on building right here in the Highlands County area.  We have a lot of relationships, friends and clients in the South Florida area.  So we also maintain a branch of our company in the South FLorida area run by David White our South FLorida area general manager.  We construct projects ranging from all types of commercial as well as many custom condo interiors for designers such as Interiors by Steven G.  We also do residential homes and additions ranging into million plus dollar range.

I realize that the way our homes are designed and specified can have a real impact on our energy demand, and how much an owner spends on energy usage. I have become a Certified Green Professional through the National Home Builders Association. My goal is to incorporate new materials and energy saving options into the houses I build.
