Hand crafted kitchen

Rustic cabin nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, NC. The cabin is a riff on the Appalachian culture and its architecture. Built as if it rose from the local woods, by local craftsmen with the tradition of seat-of-the-pants resourcefulness. The cabin echoes the Appalachian traditions of small is beautiful, and richness in simplicity.
Reclaimed Heart Pine flooring. Reclaimed barn wood wall panelling. Cabinets build by local craftsmen from reclaimed barn wood. Counter top crafted by local artisan from rough-sawn Black Walnut.

Builder: River Birch Builders, Asheville, NC 828-777-3501
Photography: William Britten williambritten.com


What Houzz contributors are saying:

River Birch Builders built the kitchen cabinets onsite out of leftover reclaimed oak wall boards for $1,600. The countertop is black walnut, hand crafted for $1,000 by the same craftsman who made the door above. The ceiling is the floor to the loft above, and is wormy maple. The Brittens put the colored lights up during Christmas and liked them so much, they never took them down.
