Asheville Compact Cottages

They had seen an ad in an Asheville journal (see graphic) and were looking at a land and home package for just over $100,000. The interior would be just under 800 sqft. There would be room to add on  an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) as well. At some point in the future the idea of continuing a “family compound” might be on the table.

Post50 Homes- Style Options

Certainly, they were looking for a super energy efficient, reduced energy and operating costs, comfort and durability, natural light, accessibility and beautiful, non-toxic materials.

“This is the best investment we could make, “ they told us.
