graceful but earthy woodwork

Located on a very tight lot bordering a flood plain park in the Village of Cheshire, in the mountains of North Carolina, this 2315hsf 3BR home was designed by Asheville architect Michael McDonough and crafted by Steve Rogers. River stone base and fireplace anchor the house to the site by referencing the nearby creek, and a variety of hardwoods from local sawmills add warmth and reinforce the "buy local" approach. Instead of a garage, a gravel driveway and porte cochere' minimize the building mass, and a variety of exterior spaces stitch the house to the lush landscape. A recessed central storage area accessed from porte cochere' (for bikes, garden tools, etc.) allows the loft above to remain connected to the main level with a graceful stair of local poplar and walnut. Other strategies, including super high-efficiency heat pump, sealed crawlspace, and Icynene insulation earned this home North Carolina "Healthy Built" and Energy Star certifications.
