Here is an interesting concept from a local firm, the Seacoast Cottage Company. This company is developing a niche focusing on high-end not-so-big construction. In this era of trophy homes and over-zealous mcmansions, a focus on quality over quantity is a fresh and welcomed approach.
The Not So Big movement was created by architect Sarah Susanka, who has since 1998 published six books on the topic.
Many of the buildable lots in treasured oceanside locations like Sanibel, Captiva, Boca Grande and Fort Myers Beach are smaller and unable to support a large trophy home. Seacoast Cottage truly offers a great solution this application.
Seacoast Cottage is planning on building a model home in The Dunes community on Sanibel. I look forward to viewing this property when complete.
