FAQ About Custom Home Cottages and Boathouse Building

Woodcastle Homes > FAQ About Custom Home Cottages and Boathouse Building



What are the steps in building a new custom cottage?

Our project managers will share with you model cottage designs and we review various plans with you. During this stage, we discuss the cottage plans that best suit your requirements and vision for your getaway cottage project.

The second stage entails a visit to our design center where we share products and possibilities with you to build your vision. You meet with our site supervisors to discuss the potential lots and communities that meet your criteria.

Once we finalize a plan and lot with you, we start preparing a contract for your builder. After legal approval, we meet you again to draw up your blueprint and home design plans. Once the architecture for your project draws up a blueprint, the exciting process begins.

At this stage, you choose products and finishing for your cottage with our expert team of designers. This is where you begin to customize your cottage and own your choices.

Once all the selections are approved and we are granted all the permits, we are ready to start construction work onsite. From this point, we check in with you and give you updates with regards to how the process is going. You’re on your way to having your custom dream cottage.

Can I visit my cottage or boathouse during the construction process?

Since this is your future home, we are happy to share the stages of the process with you. However, safety is our main concern so in order to visit your cottage site, you must schedule site visits with your custom home’s site coordinator. During your visits, all work does have to stop in order for the process to be entirely safe for you and the contractors working on your cottage.

What is the procedure of building a custom boathouse if I already have a cottage?

The steps of building a custom boathouse on your existing cottage property are similar to those of building your cottage. Woodcastle Homes’ team makes sure designs and blueprints comply with building codes and height restrictions. Once the stages of a custom build for any of our projects is complete, we can start building your boathouse.
