After being hung up in permitting for several months, we got the green light around the beginning of the year and broke ground on the first house in our pocket neighborhood in Asheville. Although January isn’t an ideal time of the year for starting new construction, we were able to work between frost and rain to get the footings in. It’s slow moving but our excitement is mounting and we are ready to start construction of the ICF (insulated concrete forms) foundation.
The front of this model home faces a wooded courtyard which will be surrounded by four additional cottages. The rear view overlooks a natural area which will be preserved for a park like community area.
The cottage is 800 sq. ft. on the first floor with a living/kitchen/dining area, along with a master suite. The bathroom is accessed from the living area as well as the bedroom. The lower level is just over 500 sq.ft and is designed for flexible use. This level will be customized for individual needs to serve as additional family bedrooms, a studio or workshop, or a rental suite.
We are enjoying the movement of creative juices and imagining who might be our neighbor. If this sounds like home, let us know.
