The Urban Cottage Collection™ is Inspired by History. Built for Tomorrow. Vesta's Builders' connection to the Columbia Metro region spans many generations. This has created a genuine sense of responsibility to build sustainable architecture for the community they live and work in.
With The Urban Cottage Collection™, Joe and Tammy Jur challenged themselves to design homes that represent "smart living" for the next decade's savvy buyer. Vesta partnered with local award-winning residential architect, J. Timothy Hance to design "the ultimate sustainable cottage home for today's urban lifestyle."
The goal was to build timeless, lasting architecture with a classic comfort that offers bright, open floor plans, right-sized square footage and desirable living spaces.
The well thought out designs fully embrace the Urban Cottage Collections mantra that "the time for smart living is now."
