  • Creating NEW space is complicated, disruptive, expensive....and it takes forever.

    ROOST, in Traverse City, Michigan, was created to drastically reduce the pain of new construction.

    "We like things that are simple. Our customers should be able to create and configure their dream space, then order it and have it delivered. I mean why not?"

    ROOST provides a project jumpstart by providing high quality, distinctive spaces that are 100% completed on the exterior, ready for interior finishes...in 8-10 weeks! This allows homeowners to finish how and when they like....controlling 35%-45% of total costs.

    The ROOST system is based on Core volumes of space that can be stacked 3 high and in a myriad of configurations for accessory dwellings, small cottage and multi-family use.

    The ROOST Cores are delivered as volumes and placed on piers resulting in reduced site prep costs and a "light on the earth" space. It takes approximately 3-5 days on site to install roof sections and any optional features that have been ordered.

    Roost adheres to sustainable practices and builds to Leed standards providing healthy, comfortable, super efficient spaces.

    "In a process not dissimilar to Apple we strive to produce beautiful products that function like they are supposed to and bring delight to our customers. Our system encourages collaboration, and a sense of playfulness and joy that is not typical in the creation of new construction. The fact that we can deliver these products quickly naturally adds to the delight."

    Roost was created by Traverse City architect Michael Fitzhugh known for renovating the world famous Traverse City State Theatre, the ultra modern M22 house, Warehouse Market, and Stormcloud Brewery in Frankfort. He is no stranger to small home design published in the Lloyd Kahn book Tiny Homes and the Wall Street Journal. His partner is Geoffrey Nelson an award winning L.A. designer/director known for directing "Home Improvement" with Tim Allen and his work on Space Jam, Pleasantville, Seabiscuit, and Howard Stern's Private Parts film. He designed the on-air graphics for TCM, NBC's Must See TV, ABC and FOX Network Branding. He also does home design collaborating with architects and homeowners focusing on hard design elements. Nelson is a Charlevoix native. The project is the culmination of an almost 5 year development.

    "We believe that ROOST will resonate with those that place value on design, efficiency, and predictability."
