ROOST | Container Home Debut

IMG_2330After years of discussion Kelly and I met with David Way on Thursday to tour his very first container home finishing up production. The 320 sqft container will soon be tricked out and on display. David chose to leave the interior mostly IMG_2325exposed while cladding the exterior in insulation and exterior MDO Plywood — leaving more living space inside. The floor will be finished off in white oak, along with, the Roost’s own custom cabinetry throughout. The bathroom pod is clad in poplar and steel on the exterior while the shower will be finished off in a rich ipe wood. There will be four doors on the front of the container leading out to deck that runs the length of the unit for optimal indoor/outdoor living. The swanky pod mixes sophisticated design with efficiency. It is what David does best.IMG_2328

The nearly complete home will be featured tomorrow at the Asheville Housing Fair September 19th from 10am to 2pm at the Stephens-Lee Center located near downtown at 30 George Washington Carver Ave., Asheville NC, 28801. Stop by and look at the finished product. After this weekend one of us may be living in it. Cheers!

Monday’s Modern | The Cabin

23fa15c08a0442ee3199ab6bb9053827Perhaps Monday is not the best day to talk about escaping into nature, but the weekend got me thinking about it. What is more natural given the beautiful environment we live here in Asheville? Today’s modern cabin has lost it’s Lincoln Log look and has evolved in every direction under the tree filtered sun. We’ve long been collecting architectural inspiration at Modern Asheville on our Pinterest page. So, relax and go here and slip quietly into cabin dreamland. Cheers!2c27ae479c6d4eca7bf8305a5e42550e
