Cottonwood Development Company is one of the area’s finest custom home builders in North Carolina. Owners Steve Leadbetter and Tracy Jones have a great working relationship. Steve was educated as an electrical engineer and worked in the medical industry for 20 years. Tracy has his MBA and taught lean manufacturing practices around the world. Together with Steve’s creative side and Tracy’s diligence with budgeting, they not only build a unique custom home that is beautiful but stays within your budget. Steve and Tracy have built multiple homes in every community on Lake James and several in Asheville. They have run the gamut of complete timber fame homes with monstrous beams and British Columbian cedar tree trunks to contemporary bungalows with exposed duct work and walls of glass over looking Lake James. Each Cottonwood home is built with pride and detailed craftsmanship. Only the best craftsman are employed to give your home all the custom features you desire. If it is a “green” built home you are looking for, Cottonwood was building that way long before it was fashionable. They build that way not only because it is environmentally conscionable but because it creates a quality, well built product. They even employ a degreed professional, Joe Crocker, to aid them in designing the best possible green and energy efficient home for you. They also work with you on designing your home. Their design/build practices save you considerable cost and ensure that the design you choose fits well on the land you have chose and will therefor be more cost efficient to build.
