St, Joseph, MI (PRWEB) October 26, 2011

Despite a challenging economy, builder Greg Powell has experienced growing success in constructing his Cottages at Harbor Shores Hideaway development on the shores of Lake Michigan. With seven units now completed and sold, and seven more under construction, Powell believes his determination to feature only high-performance, low-maintenance products in the homes has led to the project’s success.

“We will have 58 homes and a clubhouse in this Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course community on the Paw Paw River when it’s completed,” says Powell, owner of Powell Construction Services, LLC out of St. Joseph, MI. “Every one of those homes will feature high-performance Simonton ProFinish® Brickmould 600 windows and patio doors. Many of the entry doors are ENERGY STAR® qualified fiberglass door systems from Therma-Tru. And, the home foundations feature energy-efficient Superior Walls® pre-cast concrete wall panels reinforced with steel and insulated with DOW® Styrofoam™ to create a permanent barrier against sidewall water penetration.

“I’ve selected the products I would want in my own personal home to assure that the residents here have the ultimate living experience.”
