When building your custom home in Western North Carolina, including Cashiers and Highlands, keep in mind the beauty of the ‘mountain motif’ architecture which has stunned and delighted home owners for years. In this mountain living style, steep pitched roofs, native stonework, and timber frame gables are all part of the area’s most used aesthetic preferences, as well as earthy colors.
Some of the origins of these styles date back to the early days of Western North Carolina when mountain-style architecture popped up as a common sense way of building with all the local natural resources available; and with the current focus on ‘green building,’ the mountain style of architecture is not just aesthetically pleasing, but environmentally sound by going for natural materials rather than the high-tech commercial look.
So when custom building your dream home in Cashiers or Highlands NC, consider the beauty of the mountain style look and find out why this appearance has lasted centuries of popular approval.
