Welcome to Greene Cottage

Welcome to Greene Cottage, the home of my version of very simple environmentally conscious home construction.   We have taken a step back in time, before modern technology whittled away at the craftsmanship in home building, and to a time before the days of composite building material compromises.

The building you see is made of recycled lumber all harvested within 10 miles of where the house sits today.  It is constructed out of “true” lumber  a 2X8 is a 2X8 which gives the interior a very substantial post and beam feel.  My carpenter that built it is a trim guy so it is framed like a trim guy would frame.  Very neat, plumb, square, etc.  The interior will not be finished with anything other than paint and the framing is the trim.

The house is built pretty much as it would have been built 100 years ago, no plywood, no house rap, nothing that was not available 100 years ago.

We are located in Northampton County on the Eastern Shore of Virginia in a little town called Eastville.  If you are ever passing through drop us a note and come have a look.
