Back to Her Roots
Designed in the mountain Arts-and-Crafts style, Penny’s new home is made of natural materials pulled from the site. Poplar
bark dresses the facade, and the ceiling of the master bedroom. Locust tree columns support the front porch, rhododendron
branches form porch railings, and salvaged barn roofing give that timeworn appeal that adds to the home’s indigenous look.
And because it’s a North Carolina HealthyBuilt home, it’s just as environmentally friendly as it looks. “I love that they used recycled things and composite siding,” says
Penny. “I didn’t want a house that would require a lot of upkeep.”
