Sustainable Retreat

Designed and built by John and Nancy Thompson as their personal residence, this passive solar design was the first certified “green” WNC Healthy Built Home in Walnut Cove. Thirty-two feet of south-facing windows provide tons of natural light and ambient heating in winter months, and many state-of-the-art energy-efficient features and materials were incorporated into the open, airy design.

Elegant Rustic

This updated mountain-rustic summer home reflects the owner’s love of art and is the perfect backdrop for her extensive collection. The custom design perfectly captures rustic mountain elements, such as a massive stone fireplace separating the dining and great room, while incorporating more modern touches, such as a glass mantle, handcrafted iron railings and transitional lighting.

“Gavin Brown was a godsend during our recent build. Gavin worked exceptionally well with our designers, architects, suppliers and subcontractors. He was always responsive and accessible to us and our needs. Gavin’s organizational skills and construction knowledge, plus his wonderful interpersonal skills, made our building adventure easy and fun. If we ever build another home, you can be sure that Thompson and Brown Custom Builders will be our builder of choice.”
