WNC’s First SmartFlower

Kelly and I had a great time hanging out with the Red Tree Builder Team these past two weekends for the AHBA’s home tour. We were, also, fortunate enough to learn more about WNC’s first SmartFlower installation at Red Tree’s latest and coolest construction in North Asheville. The SmartFlower will power approximately 75% of this home for the owners. The plug-in unit is programmed to track the sun during daylight, close up at night and even clean itself. Sweet! Want to know more? Contact Wendall Morris at Creative Innovative Designs pictured here. And thanks to Red Tree Builders for taking the leap with this innovative new product. Cheers!

Modern Monday

What is Mid-Century Modern Architecture, Really? We’ve written about it quite frequently, but it is always great to get other perspectives like this HGTV article by Dinah Eng. We see the term Mid-Century Modern misused frequently in our industry so we welcome opportunities to refresh the subject. I know that I learn from repetition. Regardless, please enjoy and have a great Monday. Cheers!
