Jamaica Cottage Shop saw an exciting, big change in 2021. We were acquired by WHS Homes.
Don’t worry folks, it’s all good— Jamaica Cottage Shop remains and is even better!
With any major change like this, there were so many questions. What is staying the same? What’s changing? It took some time to get it all sorted out. Here’s the breakdown.
What’s staying the same?
We will remain Jamaica Cottage Shop® as you know it for the foreseeable future. We will continue offering real wood, and robust, unique designs for Fully Assembled buildings and Pre-Cut Kits nationwide.
WHS Homes is the parent company to several other brands —all in the business of building. Each brand has its own personality and specialized offerings. Jamaica Cottage Shop will continue to focus on affordable building solutions from Storage Sheds to Cottages.
WHS Homes shares so many of our already established values. As part of that, we’ll remain committed to:
• Offering unique designs made with real wood
• Using sustainably sourced materials
• Manufacturing locally and in the USA
We’re still located in South Londonderry, Vermont. There are no current plans to move out of the area.
This list is long too but it contains all good news, and we’re absolutely stoked.
There have been some minor updates in leadership, but nothing too dramatic. Department heads are being empowered with a new layer of support. This provides time and resources for improving internal processes, communication, quality control, work conditions, and more.
We’re excited to be offering more options and will be adding some new products in the next year, so stay tuned!
The timing of the sale couldn’t have been better. We were at a great pivot point. Now, with our new support and resources, we can make some really neat things happen.
