Due to unforseen circumstances, ECHO Cottages is not currently operating.
How It Works
Together We’ll Follow These 7 Easy Steps
Step 1) - Have a Heart to Heart
Make sure everyone agrees that an ECHO Cottage is the best choice for your family.
Step 2) - Come and See a Model
Visit one of our models in the NY, ideally with your elderly relative to build their comfort level. If you don’t live locally, we can arrange a video viewing.
Step 3) - We Check Out Your Property
We’ll take a look at your property using Google Earth and together we’ll discuss the best location and installation method for your ECHO Cottage.
Step 4 A) - Get Town Approval
Your town may already support ECHO Cottages. If not, getting town approval is often simple since ECHO Cottages are high-quality yet temporary structures.
Step 4 B) - Decide on Financing
Some popular options include: Cash from a home sale proceeds; A home equity loan or line of credit; Renting.
Step 5) - Contract Signing & Deposit
Once you have gotten town approval and decided on your preferred way to pay for your ECHO Cottage, we’ll send you a simple contract. 50% of the cost of an ECHO Cottage will be due at contract signing.
Step 6 A) - Secure Local Contractors
We’ll help you find affordable and high quality local subcontractors to install your ECHO Cottage once it’s been delivered.
Step 6 B) - Choose Customizations
This is the fun part! Your elderly relative will love picking colors, layout, and trims for their new ECHO Cottage. Most customizations are of no extra charge.
Step 7) - Delivery & Installation
2-3 months after contract signing we’ll deliver your ECHO Cottage! Using our 40+ years of custom home building experience, we’ll provide clear instructions to the subcontractors to ensure a fast and efficient installation process (1-2 weeks).
