“Flipping Out” – Cottage Industry Construction should be the next star!

Maybe you’ve watched the television show Flipping Out on Bravo, maybe not.  I get a kick out of it because sometimes when I’m dealing with (or a client is dealing with) builders and designers we probably feel how the star, Jeff Lewis, often feels in this program.

I have a real life Vinings/Buckhead answer to the remodeling/building nightmares:  Cottage Industry Construction, owned by husband/wife team Lauren and Greg DeLoach.  They have been friends and clients of mine for years.

Greg is a builder with a building degree from Georgia Tech and Lauren is a designer with a degree in Interior Design from the University of Georgia.  Lauren regularly works with Greg’s clients drawing plans, space planning and making selections. Greg is amazing at keeping the project on time and on budget.

Everyone will have to sell their house someday and I often get calls when people are remodeling or building wondering what a prospective buyer’s preference would be, or asking me how important something is. 

Greg and Lauren have a sense of what needs to be done at what price point with houses.  She can select lighting fixtures for a $300,000 house or a $3M house and make them both look timeless and current.

On the TV program, Jeff Lewis does both design and building as well and he has a staff that he’s constantly firing or having issues with because it really is a tough job to marry the two.

Trying to keep on schedule (and on budget) is always a challenge and by working with a couple that is literally married I think the builder gets the answers he needs a lot quicker from the designer!

Greg, Lauren and I had a standing joke that I could sell all of their houses in “1” day.  I think it took 3 days one time.  Anyway, their talents of building, design and experience are worthy of making note.   I want the DeLoach’s to start their own TV program, and of course I want to be the agent to sell all of their gorgeous houses!

Cottage Industry Construction has two projects going on in Buckhead currently, joining with great names in architecture locally. I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of them in the future.

I’m including some pictures and their contact information if you know of someone interested.

So stay tuned!
