Developer Charlie Ball insisted on the use of recycled materials in the cottage. Locust timbers, felled on the property provide support, and tin pulled from an old barn lines the ceiling. Porch banisters, made from rhododendron and mountain laurel branches, add to the organic feel of this North Carolina HealthyBuilt Home, a program that follows a six-page checklist of environmental guidelines.
