The Cottage Building Company


The husband-and-wife team of Scott and Michele Cook formed The Cottage Building Company 12 years ago. Their dream was to build communities of coastal home construction with Craftsman-style cottages that stand the test of time, create a connectedness to one’s neighbors, encourage harmony with nature, and enrich homeowners’ sense of well-being through an efficient, carefree, coastal lifestyle. The company’s best-in-class team of experts, who have on average 20-plus years of professional experience, is the reason The Cottage Building Company has become the leading coastal cottage builder and leaders in coastal home construction in southeast North Carolina. 

The Cottage Building Company has re-created the 1920s-style Craftsman home with a modern twist for today’s discerning buyers. Buyers love the homes’ wide, welcoming porches; abundant windows that allow nature to become part of the interior; exquisite coastal colors, fixtures, and finishes; many architectural details; open spaces for gatherings of family and friends; and lush, extensive landscaping featuring a variety of native and semitropical plantings that surround, beautify, and unite their cottage homes with their neighbors’ homes. 

The Cottage Building Company is excited to build in the RiverLights™ community because it is a one-of-a-kind lifestyle community, and the cottage homes will beautifully complement the architecture of historic Wilmington, the iconic Cape Fear River, and the tranquil 38-acre freshwater lake.
