About Hayward Design Build

We are passionate about the process of designing and building homes.

Our team will guide you through the designing, budgeting, and building phases, to ensure that your home reflects your lifestyle and suits your needs for beauty, comfort, efficiency and durability.

At Hayward Design Build we understand that your long term enjoyment in your home goes way beyond aesthetics. We have learned a lot about maximizing the home’s comfort and long term affordability. We offer super insulated air sealed building envelopes. We assist with site planning including proper solar orientation, the use of passive and active solar, appropriate windows on each façade to fully exploit the suns energy.

This helps create a very comfortable home with minimal, and potentially zero, annual energy costs. Often times the additional costs of upgraded windows and additional insulation and air sealing is offset in large part by reductions in the sizing of heating and cooling equipment need.

Our knowledge of sustainable building options will give you the opportunity to make informed decisions around building an efficient and sustainable home that will last a lifetime.

As a graduate of University of Vermont and native Vermonter, Corey grew up in a Southern Vermont ski town where he developed a strong work ethic, an appreciation for customer service, and proficiency in the manufacturing and construction industries. After traveling West to take advantage of some dynamic snowboarding opportunities, Corey returned to VT employing his skills to a large and flourishing national coffee company managing their distribution teams.  As someone who enjoys working with his hands, Corey stepped out of corporate life and back into the construction industry.  Having an opportunity to combine his analytical, sales, retail, distribution, logistics, and leadership skills, Corey continues to develop process improvements and identify strengths in others, enabling them to grow in new ways.  Corey has a love for the outdoors and year-round activities that Vermont offers.  Corey currently lives in Waterbury with his wife Kelley, three active children and two dogs.  He enjoys alpine sports and watching his kids thrive in their extracurricular activities.  They live in a house visualized by Corey, which was designed and built by the Hayward Design Build team!
