Asheville Homes and LAND!- The Keep In Touch Blog


Asheville's in on the GREEN TREND, but Who's Doing WHAT in Your Neighborhood?

Thinking about the "red hot GREEN" trend in real estate gets me going. I'm not the only one, either. Whether top of the pecking orderyou are in Asheville, N.C. or Kalamazoo...getting involved in sustainable /green homes and land appears to call to "what makes sense" in the minds of consumers.

So...this is not just happening in Asheville, NC, although many say we are "THE Hub"  of such activity.   I'm smiling as I write this because I know that the eco-innovators in Georgia, Texas, Arizona, Washington State, Oregon, Western Michigan and elsewhere might have a thing or two to say about that.

In the Greater Atlanta area, for example,  EarthCraft House reports over 4,000 EarthCraft House   single family homes and over 1,500 EarthCraft Multifamily dwelling units have been certified, providing a long term pollution prevention impact.

Developers working with EarthCraft House to promote environmental policies on a larger scale, have created six(6)  EarthCraft Communities in the Greater Atlanta region. There, Southface  promotes sustainable homes, workplaces and communities through education, research, advocacy and technical assistance.

Asheville and Atlanta accounted I WANT TO KNOW who's doing WHAT in your neighborhood. Comments, anyone?

Hi JaneAnne -

In Michigan, eco-innovators Meg LaRou and Russ Valvo are getting ready to break ground on Deep Lake. The beauty of this project can be experienced by visiting the link to the website and browsing the information they have provided. I met Russ and Meg at the Michigan Energy Fair 2007. They have put years of research into this project and have assembled an amazing team of professionals to implement the design. They will combine nature and wellness to create this unique place where visitors and residents will be able to interact not only with nature but also with their inner-selves.

According to Deep Lake website, "At Deep Lake we are committed to the principle of building and managing this facility in such a way that it will be of service for no fewer than seven generations." WOW!!!

Take some time to review the sustainable development going on in Battle Creek, Michigan! This is not a quick browse website! As you enter turn up your speakers, relax and listen to the sound of the loons and other lovely natural sounds to set the tone!
