ver wonder what makes a home truly wonderful? is it the location, the design, or maybe the builder? Why do some homes have the ‘it’ factor? These ‘it’ homes all have one thing in common–a creative solution to a challenge. Creativity rises to its highest level with a challenge. The challenge can be the building site, materials or just plane old funding.
The talented Mr. Keven Hawkins has taken all of these challenges and used them with an abundance of inspiration and creativity to construct a truly remarkable home for his clients in Cashiers N.C.. You will love this ‘it’ house! Notice how the Design Fun happens when all the puzzle pieces fit together and the challenges are solved.
