Rob and Vee Mossburg

Rob Mossburg is a longtime MLUI board member, but he also owns a remarkable building, development, and interior design firm in Harbor Springs called The Cottage Company. His business operates with the highest levels of personal and business values: sustainability, customer service, social consciousness, and community investment—all things near to MLUI’s heart. We interviewed Rob and his wife Vee in the early 2000s about a new urbanism development project they were working on called Bay Street Cottages. Rob said, “It became clear to us then that an organization that didn’t discourage growth but rather encouraged smart growth is so important to northern Michigan.” He remembers sketching houses at the kitchen table as a young boy and dreaming of living in northern Michigan. “I’m living my childhood dream! We go to work every day with an amazing team and create beautiful, sustainable projects that enhance our world and protect our environment.”
