Sentry Hill at York Harbor- Cottages

Phase two of the Sentry Hill project entailed the construction of 21 cottages, each customized to the owners’ specifications.

All of the cottages feature an attached garage and are connected to the inn via an emergency response system. The construction process involved managing continual changes and numerous site visits, all while keeping the project moving.

York Harbor’s stringent inspection codes posed a potential obstacle, as each cottage was considered a separate job and inspections had to be set up three days in advance. Ouellet developed a computerized checklist and booked the codes enforcement officer, Mark Badger, to come one day a week for the project’s duration, providing him with monthly reports. Badger testifies to the efficiency of the system, saying, “There were no outstanding items left unaddressed in the 1 ½ year project; this rare in our business.
