Black Mountain Builder Wins National Green Building Honors http://ashevilleblog.com/black-mountain-builder-wins-national-green-building-honors/ http://ashevilleblog.com/black-mountain-builder-wins-national-green-building-honors/#respond Thu, 02 Feb 2017 20:44:48 +0000 http://ashevilleblog.com/?p=10878 Local homebuilding firm Living Stone Design + Build of Black Mountain won several national awards and was recognized as a leader in the home building industry at the 2017 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders’ Show.

Local homebuilding firm Living Stone Design + Build of Black Mountain won several national awards and was recognized as a leader in the home building industry at the 2017 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders’ Show.

The firm was honored for two particular homes. The Watkins Residence was the winner of Best in American Living and Top Design Trend for “Modern Farmhouse.” This custom home received acclaim for its integration of modern and rustic elements and for its seamless design, featuring a natural landscape of surrounding farm land and Blue Ridge Mountains topography.

The other Living Stone project that received national recognition has been affectionately named “the Rhodo Reno.” This near complete renovation of a 960-square foot midcentury home is located on Rhododendron Avenue in Black Mountain. The “Rhodo Reno” won the highly prestigious Best in Green award. It is one of the most energy efficient homes Living Stone has built to date, and is also a case study in “right sizing,” the practice of intentionally building to a standard of quality within a set square footage, rather than building a larger home. This home was already awarded Platinum certification from the NC Greenbuilt program, and has an impressively low HERS score of 30.

Additionally, at the NAHB Awards, Sean Sullivan, president and accredited master builder of Living Stone, received the highly coveted Young Professional Award, for which he was finalist along with 14 other builders chosen from across the nation. He was also honored as the 2016 Certified Green Professional Designee of the Year.

These recognitions poise Living Stone Design + Build as the most acclaimed green building firm in the region.

About Living Stone

Living Stone has been crafting award-winning custom homes that exceed
clients’ expectations for over 20 years. The synergy of their Six Levels of Service, which include a proven process, strategic partnerships and an artful attention to client’s comfort delivers dream-worthy homes to families and couples seeking a happier, healthier life in the mountains.

It is how they build a home with the highest integrity. Their stewardship of client’s comfort and health guides every step of their design to build process and is the heart of the Living Stone difference.

Merry Miracles for Local Families http://ashevilleblog.com/merry-miracles/ http://ashevilleblog.com/merry-miracles/#respond Thu, 01 Dec 2016 17:56:01 +0000 http://ashevilleblog.com/?p=9418 As the Christmas holiday draws near, families are feeling the pressure of providing gifts for their spouses and children. With 20% of Asheville's population living at or below the poverty level, many are struggling to put food on their table or gas in their vehicles, much less using additional finances to fund Christmas gifts. 

Like with our recent Thanksgiving initiative, AshevilleBlog is reaching out to our community and support those who find themselves struggling or needing additional help this time of year. We want to reach families who may not qualify for other traditional means of support through other local gift giving programs. 

Our mission is to equip a minimum of 100 families with gifts for their children and spouses to ease the burden of holiday costs. In a unique twist, instead of handing out generic age appropriate gifts for children, we want to empower the families and make them a part of the gift selection process. Our staff and volunteers will be setting up a shop and inviting families in during set hours to select and gift wrap gifts for their children - completely free. 

We have set up several donation stations across Asheville where you can drop off items to be set up in our store. Items for children of all ages, including teenagers, are appreciated. We also encourage items such as blankets, candles, movies, and other items that will allow older children or spouses to gift to each other. 

If you are interested in making a financial contribution to allow us to buy items in bulk at a discounted price, you can PayPal money to Ashevilleblog@gmail.com, or contact us to arrange for pickup. 

If you can't contribute otherwise but are interested in volunteering, there will be a signup form available. We need individuals to help run the store, sort items, pick up donations, and do other odd jobs. 

The store will be only open for one weekend during limited hours, and more information will be coming shortly. If you or someone interested in applying to be able to shop for free, please fill out this short application (available soon). The more donations we get the more families we can serve. 

You can find our donation stations at these convenient locations:

A HANDMADE AND VINTAGE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE FEATURING 80+ LOCAL & REGIONAL INDEPENDENT VENDORS

East West Pop Up Shop will be popping up with our 10-day Third Annual Holiday Pop Up Shop showcasing the best in handmade and vintage. The Holiday Pop Up will transform East West Venue into a boutique shopping experience full of carefully curated goods including 80+ local and regional independent vendors of handmade and vintage goods including housewares, furniture, decor, jewelry, clothing, gifts for baby and more. (full list available on website)

The 10-day market begins Thursday, December 8th and runs through Saturday, December 17th , open 10am-8pm daily, Fridays until 9pm.

Admission to East West Pop Up Market is free of charge. The market will be held indoors at East West Venue, 278 Haywood Road.

Friday, December 9th will be the Grand Opening Party from 5pm – 9pm. Expect a lively and festive atmosphere, appropriate for all ages. Starting at 5pm the first 50 attendees will receive an East West swag bag full of goodies from our vendors. There will be giveaways and door prizes throughout the night.

Nikki Whited owns East West Vintage Rentals & Venue in West Asheville (where the pop up is held), Stephanie Mergelsberg organizes creative maker workshops with Blackberg Creative Studios, and Sally Hudson is a textile designer creating home and fashion accessories with her company Stellata. The East West Pop Up Shop originated within the creative communities in Asheville to create another opportunity for the independent maker.

Vendors leave their goods with the Pop Up Team to create a one-of-a-kind retail space. The Holiday Pop Up continues into it’s third holiday season, this year expanding from a 4-day event into 10-days with over 80 vendors.

Melissa Robbins, former Bakery and Deli Manager of the flagship store in Chapel Hill, is General Manager of the Asheville location.

Southern Season to open Asheville ‘Taste of Southern Season’ store on July 1

Southern Season today announced that it will open its smaller format Taste of Southern Season store next Friday, July 1. The 2,000-square-foot shop with onsite parking is located at 4 Swan Street in Biltmore Village. Melissa Robbins, former Bakery and Deli Manager of the flagship store in Chapel Hill, is General Manager of the Asheville location.

“We are delighted to bring the Southern Season experience to Western North Carolina,” says Dave Herman, President. Last month Southern Season opened a second Taste of Southern Season store in downtown Charleston. “We know that people in the greater Asheville area are passionate about gourmet food and entertaining, and we want visitors to enjoy all the great North Carolina and Southern brands we’ll stock.”

The store will celebrate its opening with Fourth of July specials, including tastings and product demonstrations. Store hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

The Taste of Southern Season store will focus on the most popular goods available at the 60,000-square-foot store in Chapel Hill, including premium grocery, gifts and entertaining essentials. Customers can count on finding our line of cheese straws, nuts and jams, as well as signature gift baskets, Moravian cookies, chocolates and candies, coffee and cocktail mixers. The shop also will offer cold soft drinks and frozen treats.

Southern Season’s product assortment and exceptional customer service are regularly rewarded by customers in “best of” contests in their communities. The Chapel Hill store recently was honored as Best Gift Store by readers of Chapel Hill Magazine and Best Kitchen Store by Indy Week, which also recognized us in the Best Chocolate, Wine and Gift categories for Orange and Chatham counties.

The smaller concept is modeled on the successful debut Taste of Southern Season store, which opened in, 2015, in Raleigh’s Cameron Village. By eliminating excess space and focusing on the most popular local and regional products, it quickly achieved success in a highly competitive area. Additional Taste of Southern Season stores are set to open before Christmas in Wilmington and Southern Pines.

Enhancing the success of all brick-and-mortar sites is a significant investment this year to build an online digital store to allow customers to select from more than 80,000 items by phone or tablet. The system also will benefit shoppers at physical stores, enabling them to order products not found on shelves for prompt home delivery.

 

About Southern Season: 

Southern Season has called Chapel Hill home since it was founded in 1975. The 60,000-square-foot gourmet food emporium in Chapel Hill has won more numerous local, regional and national awards. Its renowned cooking school has played host to numerous celebrity chefs and is one of the many reasons the company has been selected the best cooking school by Vanity Fair and the best specialty gourmet food store by a number of reviewers and newspapers. Southern Season was recognized as the Outstanding Retailer of the Year by the National Association of Specialty Food and was selected as one of the Top 25 Best Independent Stores in America.
