WHY EVERYONE WANTS TO LIVE IN ASHEVILLE, NC THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES TO SEE IN ASHEVILLE, NC Everybody is talking about moving to Asheville, NC. People come to visit and they just fall in love with the place! It’s easy to see why anyone would want to stay and call it home. Situated in the  Blue Ridge Mountains , Asheville is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The mountains are magnificent, the weather is amazing and the people are the neighbors you always dreamed of having. The truth is, right now, everyone is leaving the big cities. New York City and San Francisco have seen a scandalous decline in their populations since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even smaller, but still major cities are seeing a decline, such as Chicago, Cleveland, and Dallas.

HEALTHY HOMES: WHY INDOOR AIR QUALITY SHOULD BE YOUR HOME’S PRIORITY   We often overlook the importance of air quality. We take it for granted when it’s good and only notice it when it becomes a nuisance – a foul smell or allergens in the air.

Like sound and light quality, air quality is an intangible yet important aspect of  building design . A building’s program and purpose determines the standards for its air quality. For instance, hospitals and schools might require higher standards when it comes to air quality. However, just because your home is not a hospital does not mean that you can treat air quality as an afterthought. Air quality can affect your comfort level, focus, productivity and overall quality of life. In today’s post-pandemic...See more

FACTORS ARCHITECTS MUST CONSIDER FOR MOUNTAIN MODERN HOMES MOUNTAIN MODERN HOMES Have you ever dreamt of a cozy modern cabin in the mountains, completely immersed in the tranquility and beautiful scenery? Designing residential structures in these challenging environments takes a lot of experience and expertise especially when the goal is to effortlessly nestle the structure into the site. What was once a very complex and challenging undertaking, can now be done on even the most remote sites. Things like the logistics of transporting materials can be overcome through careful thought and planning. In addition, the choice of materials and construction methods. Building a home in the mountains does not mean that you have to sacrifice luxury. Mountain homes require a unique and specific type of architecture to suit environmental conditions. For example, in mountain areas susceptible to large amounts of snow, the roof should be designed carefully to address this...See more

HOW CLT CAN REDUCE CONSTRUCTION TIME AND CUT DOWN COSTS ON CHALLENGING SITES IS CLT CAN REDUCE CONSTRUCTION TIME? As this series continues to exemplify, Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) is transforming design and construction industries. CLT has, like concrete, pushed the envelope of our built environment.
