Welcome to Home & Cottage Crafters

your local custom home creator. If you have a few minutes, take some time and browse the  Home and Cottage Crafters (HCC) story (around here, we LOVE story time). We always say, building a home is essentially a relationship between our customers and our team. What better way to get to know your builder than with a brief synopsis of the family's tale...

Once upon a time...

...there was a young family; Don, Lori & Ted Rumsey owned a window business... OK, perhaps that may be too much family history - I'll provide the reader's digest version! The Rumsey's had a vision and were determined to compile their knowledge, skill, and enthusiasm for building into a company that genuinely offered something for everyone. For nearly 20 years, HCC has produced extraordinary custom-built homes. Our mission stems from aligning our passion with your (customer) vision. We thrive on the ability to turn dreams into legacies - something to be enjoyed with family for years to come.

What Sets Us Apart?

Our homes are unique, full of charisma and elegance - we are not your average builder. We provide our customers with the most magnificent homes, intricate designs & full customization options.
