To build—not only small buildings, but industry leading solutions and creative ways to empower fellow and future builders across the world.
Domenic founded Jamaica Cottage Shop in 1995. Starting with dog houses, he expanded his skill set to post and beam cottages and sheds, learning about different building techniques while traveling all over the United States. Over time he grew the company from eight employees up to over eighty, with a catalog of over one-hundred building designs. His knowledge of the post and beam building industry is an accumulation of life experience and a business degree from Green Mountain College, where he graduated in 1991. As the President of Jamaica Cottage Shop Domenic enjoys working as the Senior Designer and expanding the company with a robust marketing program. In 2019 Jamaica Cottage Shop was recognized as the third fastest-growing company in Vermont by The Vermont Business Growth Awards and made the Inc. 5000 Most Successful Private Companies in America List. When Domenic is not planning his next cottage design he can be found snowmobiling or four-wheeling out in the wilderness, following Phish, or enhancing his rustic homestead in Northern Maine.
