Shelburne Woods | Construction Update

img_6922We  stopped by to visit the progress at Shelburne Woods, a new eco-friendly mini-community in West Asheville. New community landscaping has been put in place to create a private enclave of nine homes still walkable to urban West Asheville. Some signage and the mail center were recently installed. img_6920

As you can see the roof and windows are going in on 51 Shelburne Woods, the first of the homes under construction. We would love to tell you more about this quality new neighborhood. Give us a call if you want to know more or go here for more info. Cheers!shelburne-woods-comp

A Cabin by Architect Jim Olson

I found this brief little article and poetic film with architect Jim Olson on NOWNESS. I felt compelled to share it. Please enjoy by going here. It easily speaks for itself. tumblr_nydrdhwOzd1qd5e3ao2_1280

His home is a monument to the principles that have underpinned his entire architectural career: the idea that buildings can serve as a bridge between nature, culture, histories and people. His 14-foot by 14-foot treetop house in Longbranch, Washington, is designed to encourage its inhabitants to look outwards and never forget that human beings are a part of the natural world.
