About the Team

We are not only the developers, but this is home. After years seeking the right opportunity,  a group of friends came together to build our spot in the mountains. Our mission is sustainability and tranquility, so we have reduced the density to create greenspace with trails and recreation in the forest. The same sustainable building team and process we are applying to our homes.

Our local General Contractor has decades of building high-end custom homes in Highlands and Macon county. We have put together a team to build these sustainable custom home in our community for the summer of 2022.
