1st Certified Green Development in Pinellas and Hillsborough County


Glencairn Cottages in Dunedin is Pinellas and Hillsborough County’s first certified Green Development and is Tampa Bay’s first completely green community where all of the homes will also be certified green.

Glencairn Cottages was certified as a Green Development on May 16, 2008 by the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC). The FGBC is a nonprofit Florida corporation dedicated to improving the building environment.

“We are committed to reducing the consumption of energy, conserving water, and preserving our precious natural resources,” explained Glencairn Cottages’ developer, Carl Krave, President of Pocket Neighborhoods, Inc. “We are focused on building small communities of exceptional homes. We are committed to open development that fits within the ecosystem and connects with our immediate neighbors.”

The FGBC mission is "to provide a statewide green building program with environmental and economic benefits." (www.floridagreenbuilding.org) The FGBC has demanding standards for builders who wish to build green homes. Creating an entire green community is even more difficult, especially when building a new community within an already-established neighborhood.

Glencairn Cottages is currently under construction in Dunedin and site work is nearly complete. Construction of the first model will begin in June. The 14 single-family homes range from 1,476 square feet to 1,988 square feet and prices start at $319,900. Glencairn Cottages is located on Douglas Avenue one block south of Main Street, Dunedin. www.glencairncottages.com

What Customers are Saying About Our Custom Homes

"I would like to take this opportunity to tell you directly about my experiences that I have had with your staff over the past couple of weeks.

Firstly I want to say that Jon at the Arabi plant was a GREAT help and most assistive with the questions I had about the Nationwide process and in particular our first house.

Secondly John on the set crew was the most professional and efficient person that I have dealt with with what he has to do in a very short time frame.

Your PRO SET PLUS crew that did our home should be VERY highly commended. The efficiency and co-operation by John and his staff was absolutely beyond reproach. They did their jobs quickly, effectively, neatly AND cleaned up after themselves. Any builder that does NOT utilize your PRO SET PLUS program is making a HUGE mistake.

Your staff at Martinsville have literally bent over backwards to help us get the best design and functionality out of our houses. This has lead us to the present position of having SIX hot prospects for new and existing home owners as potential home buyers at HUNLEY WATERS.

In summation Nationwide Custom Homes has been a pleasure to work with. Thank you and your staff for all that you do."
