IMG_4821Under Construction | Here is a quick peek at what David Way of Roost, Inc is currently working on. This 1900 sqft home anchored to the hillside of Chicken Hill is getting closer to completion. The interior spaces have high ceiling heights to add more light and vertical space to the efficient floor plan. Both the upper levels will have expansive viewing decks to increase the three season, livable space. The two rectilinear masses defining separate living spaces will be clad in complimentary materials. The lower mass is currently being wrapped in rough-sawn boards. Overall, a cool addition to our urban infill. Cheers!Roost jefferson

Modern Sneak Peek | Chicken Hill

Our friend, builder Bill MacCurdy, gave Kelly and I a tour of his latest home under construction in Chicken Hill. He’s just putting the finishing touches on this 3 level, 2 Bedroom and 2.5 Bath home. We look forward to seeing the final touches when it is show ready. Great job Bill!Sun Construction Comp

The Barn

I drove through Chicken Hill, near downtown, this morning to take a look at the 3rd house, the Barn, built by Bill of Sun Construction on West Haywood. The home makes use of the small infill lot in this developing urban area while modernizing the industrial and farmhouse styling of the adjacent historic homes. If you don’t know Chicken Hill, rising just above the River Arts district, make sure you take yourself on a tour or give Kelly and I a call. It is one of my favorite neighborhoods. Enjoy!  TroySunset House

This home has returned to the real estate market. Cleverly designed by Darryl Rantis, it offers efficient living in Chicken Hill between downtown and the River Arts District. Here is what I had written about it in 2009 when the home was first built – “Finally, some clever and well designed “in fill” housing that is badly needed in Asheville. I took a tour of this home today. Derived from its context and both the industrial and work cottage vernacular it has developed into a smart, loft style home. These healthy built homes pack a lot in a small square footage and represent the future of what homes will become – smaller square footage, healthy built and some versatile square footage.  The basement can be a bedroom, office or in-law suite.  The details all fit – from the european style cabinetry to the pine plank flooring and some of the built in shelving you will find these homes both clean and charming.”

Here is how the current listing agent describes it  –  “Fantastic contemporary nearly new home within 1 mile of Pack Square & right in the middle of the River Arts District! Walk to restaurants and shops and feel a part of the thriving area w/all Asheville has to offer! Sleek modern interiors, certified Healthy Built Home designed by award winning architect Daryl Rantis. LL could be separate apt – 12′ ceilings/polished concrete floors. You will be the envy of all your friends w/ this dramatic home!”
