Hi, I’m Elizabeth, founder of Chesapeake Cottages LLC. I was lucky to grow up on Maryland’s Eastern Shore along the Chesapeake Bay, with its amazing nature and wildlife. I lived in and was surrounded by wonderful, timeless old homes, built to endure from one generation to the next. That’s where I developed my love of traditional Architecture, and my appreciation for environmental protections, sensitive design, and that “waste not, want not” approach to living.
This is the acorn that grew into the tree – a team of like-minded professionals on a mission…
Our goal is to disrupt unsustainable trends in our country’s current Residential Construction Industry – wasteful overbuilding of larger, lower quality houses – by providing a smart and attractive alternative.
Most people don’t need or want a mansion. They need a home that is livable, durable, and economical to build and maintain. They want a home that is warm and welcoming, healthier to live in, and environmentally sensitive. And they don’t want to slog through a long, laborious process to get there.
Our Cottage design packages specify panelized walls and roofs, and a complete list of materials, that are time-proven to be durable, effective, and environmentally conscientious. This translates to a higher quality build with less waste, in less time – getting you into your new home much more quickly than conventional building processes can.
And that means smarter construction for now and the next generation.
