Artistic homes built with local and natural materials

Have you ever walked into a house that seemed magical?
Do you think you would like to live in a piece of art?
What if your house didn’t use much energy to run and was built of sustainable materials?

These questions inspired me to build houses of distinct artistry and environmental integrity for 20 years.

The houses we’ve designed and built dot the Asheville landscape and each one tells the tale of trim milled from trees onsite, passive solar orientation, use and reuse of local, natural material and artistic details in every eyeful. The designs employ sacred geometry to proportion the spaces correctly and we refer to the Japanese aesthetic principles of Wabi-Sabi, functional and austere, when we finish any space. Wherever you are in the homebuilding process we are ready and able to help, from finding land and lots to providing comprehensive design-build services.
