What is “your” song?

Checking emails after work hours.

If you could go on vacation anywhere in the world, where would it be?


What is your favorite LOCAL thing to do when you have guests from out of town?

Biltmore House if they’ve never seen it followed by lunch or dinner on the grounds; boating on Lake Lure with lunch at the Lake House Restaurant and Bar; or strolling downtown checking out galleries, shops and restaurants (We like to eat! Haha!).

We also enjoy driving friends and family by the some of the homes we’ve built. They see them in photos but not often in person.
