(just found this article ~) Thank you, Becky, Starla and Scott for freely sharing so much information and cost-saving tips. I do not have the trained eye to have noticed those incredible details that really make it special - without the well-written article. A beautiful, functional, well situated forever-home. Congratulations! (as for the bunk room: my husband, my brother & his wife and I would find the accommodations perfect ! We'd gab all night - but what fun!)

I would love to see a floor plan for this house. I can't figure out how the small office alcove relates to the kitchen. Also, I'm sure there is a laundry room and I'd love to see it. Wonderful house.

As an Asheville native, I give two thumbs up for the incorporation of the views and natural materials in the design. This is an extraordinary house. But it's unclear to me from the photos that this house is sited to capture the distant vistas because of the trees that appear to surround it. My family members remove or top the nearest trees so that they enjoy the long-view year round. I live in a northern Atlanta suburb now and what I see out of my windows is woodsy, beautiful and quite similar to the window views in these photos. But when I visit my sister who lives a few miles from Asheville, the distant vista is incomparable each season as we gaze out her windows or sit on her deck.
