Enlightened Ideas Grounded in Experience

Cottonwood North Carolina Home Builder
Cottonwood Development Company was co-founded by Tracy Jones and Steve Leadbetter. Steve, Cottonwood’s wildly creative visionary, is a degreed engineer from the medical construction industry. Steve’s passion for artistry is carved into every detail and finish. Constantly pushing the envelope of design and invention, he utilizes unique and exotic techniques to infuse each project with its own individual spirit.

With an MBA, Tracy manages the construction process from a monetary and efficiency perspective. Prior to founding Cottonwood, his expertise in manufacturing process efficiency led him around the globe, where he taught teams in the U.S., Canada, China and Mexico to improve processes and eliminate inefficiencies. Employing this experience, Tracy keeps careful watch to ensure the timeline and budget for each Cottonwood project are met. Together, Steve and Tracy’s complimentary talents blend not only to deliver an exemplary product, but also combine to provide each client with a truly enjoyable building experience. Cottonwood has also been building green long before it was fashionable.

Driven by Passion Fueled by Creativity

Custom Homes in Lake James North Carolina
We choose our projects based on several objectives-whether it’s an extraordinary concept and design, a new challenge that we haven’t built before, or simply a client who’s fun to work with. Our projects range greatly in price, but each is selected because it fits within these criteria. As artists, we seek projects that create passion and enthusiasm within our company. We strive to be genuinely excited about what we build. We structure our processes to build your home as efficiently and quickly as possible. However, we won’t cut corners, and we aren’t just looking for the next house to build. Instead, we look for select opportunities that will allow us to flex our “creative muscles” and inspire us to dream up new ideas and finishes.

Anyone can build a custom home; styles can be copied and the materials we use are available to the public. What makes a Cottonwood home unique is the intangible spirit it embodies-passion for our craft, and our relentless pursuit of the sublime. If our vision isn’t engrained into each minute detail, it’s simply not Cottonwood built.

“Green” Joe – Our Renewable Resource

Founded by people who truly love the outdoors, Cottonwood has been building green long before it was the fashionable movement that it is today. We employ green building practices not only for their significant environmental benefits, but also for the undeniable fact that a green structure is a higher quality product.

Because building green is such an integral part of our design and building process, we employ our very own renewable resource, “Green” Joe Crocker. As a degreed and accredited expert in renewable energy systems and Building Science, Joe utilizes his background in teaching to help counsel Cottonwood clients.

Joe works hand-in-hand with each client to determine how many green credits are built into their project, ranging from limited to complete energy independence. To ensure clients can make educated decisions regarding their project’s efficient use of resources – energy, water and materials, Joe provides options for available green technologies and environmentally friendly building practices.
