Classic Cape Cod Beach Cottage

Posted by REEF Builders on Wed, Apr 22, 2020

Here's a preview of a fun cottage project that we are working on. We are often asked to design very compact and highly-detailed projects to fit in the various old cottage neighborhoods found near the beach communities on Cape Cod. This classic beach cottage is designed to fit on a small, 5000 sf lot near Barnstable Harbor and Millway Beach on Cape Cod Bay. This home will have about 1400sf of living area, 3 bedrooms, and 2 baths, all in a very efficient design. The exterior of the home will feature metal roofing, board and batten siding details, and exposed rafter tails, reminiscent of classic Cape Cod Cottages built in the early 1900's. Our design team did an exceptional job incorporating all of these these important details in a very small package!

Posted by REEF Builders on Tue, Apr 09, 2019

It's been a year since our last construction cost guide was published, so we figured it was the the right time to provide our 2019 update. This guide provides realistic cost per square foot numbers that can be very helpful if you are planning on building your new custom home on Cape Cod. One important note: REEF Builders is a design / build company, and has been for over 30 years. So when we talk about construction costs, we are including all the important and necessary factors for an overall project. The REEF team will handle all site and architectural design services, engineering and survey, and complete construction services through landscaping and beyond if needed. We specialize in challenging sites, especially those involving wetlands, flood zones, or waterfront conditions that can initially appear to be a difficult barrier to building. REEF can help make the entire building process predictable, so you can make informed decisions about your new Cape Cod Home!
