What’s YOUR Cottage Style?

By: Karen McCambridge

At the end of a long week many of us look forward to the drive to the ‘family cottage’, for a chance to experience a little rest & relaxation or we’re counting down to the warm days of summer to soak up some treasured family times at the lake.  If you have ever dreamed of owning a cottage or re-decorating your home with cottage style, Nugent Builders specializes in Cottage Building & Lakefront Living.  What is YOUR Cottage Style?  A cozy bungalow with a natural stone fireplace to sip your morning coffee by as you watch the sunrise, a quaint retreat that encourages a simpler way of life or possibly a family heirloom perched on a hill with the most beautiful view of the lake you’ve ever seen.

We understand that everyone has ‘their own style’ and we work closely with each client to ensure that the ‘finished product’ is a reflection of you.  Sometimes it’s those quirky cottage touches that made you fall in love with the space to begin with.   When you remodel a cottage, we work to blend the old with the new to keep the spirit of the original walls alive, while creating a whole new living space for today’s wants & needs.  We also understand when the current cottage sits at your favorite building site; we handle the navigation process of removal of the old cottage & all the necessary preparations that the site will require to build your new dream home.  We do this every day so we keep the process as streamlined & simple for you as possible.

Some current trends in the cottages we are building this season include tall ceilings for gorgeous windows to capture the views, searching for reclaimed barn wood products to highlight throughout the space, large beams across the ceilings is one of our favorites, natural stone and also a large focus on the exterior spaces for entertaining such as outdoor kitchens, custom decks & beaches.  The beauty of a cottage is that each one tells a unique story.  We would be happy to help you tell ‘YOUR COTTAGE STORY’.   We’re just a phone call away!
