BALD MOUNTAIN HOMES, INC.
Solar & Non-Toxic, "An Environmental Partnership"
New Homes Portfolio
|On a city lot, we built this gem. It's passive solar, active solar, and photovoltaic, as well as non-toxic, natural, and attractive. The owner is chemically sensitive, so we used natural solutions throughout the construction. He is also environmentally aware, and requested a greywater system (legal), locust deck and exterior landscaping, sustainably harvested finish lumber, permaculture gardens, and rooftop water collection. |
|We made the most of this natural setting. The greenhouse is foreground to a functional solar design. Passive heating, active in-floor heat, and off-grid solar electricity are featured. It's a remote location, but within easy driving distance of Asheville. |
|Upscale living on top of a mountain. Privacy and views are combined with artistic woodworking. Passive and active solar off the grid, of course, but the beauty is in the details. Scribe-fit log joinery makes the post and beam work spectacular. We have to mention the wood carvings and antique stained glass and scandinavian wood stoves, just to name a few of the features of this outstanding house. |
|On top of a mountain, with majestic views, this house dominates the scene. Even the basement apartment has a view. We highlighted the inside with curved balcony and kitchen counter. The design is modern, execution is timeless. |
|This handsome solar design has a greenhouse and woodstove heat. The form and function are exquisitely balanced. Special attention was applied to the use of local and recycled materials. Inside and outside, there's a tangible feeling of harmony and appropriateness.|
|One owner wanted traditional styling, the other wanted modern. We built the best of both. Hand hewn beams on a rising ceiling create a grand living room. Cabinetry and curved stair are white oak, sawn from the property. The design is complete with passive and active solar, and Sunpipe daylighting.|
