YOU Can Create a Green Home Next to a Stream in Asheville

Not far from the cultural hub of Asheville, North Carolina yet surrounded by forever-wild mountain forests, soaring cliffs, cascading streams , and stuff of which dreams of Home are made is  the doo rway to possibility in the form of an eco-community  that thrives on nature.


I'm heading over the valley and up the mountainside  this weekend to take more photos to show you.

   (How do you like this one?)

I want to see for myself if what I've heard is true....that you can create a green home next to a stream, and walk for miles right out your back door then camp under the stars.

I expect to find a blueprint for ecological wisdom because, in a brief conversation I had the other day the eco-innovator/ developer, I was informed,

 "We are the first development in the country to combine wide-ranging land conservation with an eco-friendly community of green homes, which are solar-heated and solar-powered. Using renewable energy from wind power, hydropower and geothermal sources, we are a true net-zero-energy community, creating more renewable energy than we use."

I am excited! This has to be a model for eco-innovation. Stay tuned.. .

Great post and very interesting approach. It is refreshing to see builders and developers taking a fresh look at "Green" building.

JaneAnne - You family is very talented in the photography arena! I look forward to your posts as much for the photos as the new and interesting ideas and content!

I am fascinated with net zero energy homes and even more so, net zero communities! I am excited to hear more about the projects you are working on and can't wait for the pictures that come from your weekend up the mountainside!
