JAG & Associates Construction Helps Pave Path for Asheville's Green Building Movement

Brand New Gorgeous Energy Star Home

There’s no doubt the green build trend has gained a strong foothold in Asheville. People choose to go green for a variety of reasons, from economic to environmental. And when they do, many choose to go with Asheville-based JAG & Associates Construction.

As the effects of global climate change, foreign oil dependency and toxicity in standard building materials becomes more evident, a greater number of people are turning to the idea of sustainable, green housing. Spearheading the popular movement in green builds, JAG produces quality green homes in Asheville and Western North Carolina to fit a range of budgets. Home seekers can choose from a portfolio of “JAG Built” homes, or put their unique stamp on a dream residence by creating a custom build.

“Our commitment has always been to build quality-crafted, turnkey-ready green homes as well as custom creations in neighborhoods all over Asheville,” says Jody Guokas, founder and president of JAG. “We pride ourselves in providing a building process that is both efficient and enjoyable.”

JAG Construction Provides Green Details, Each Step of the Way

Every home JAG has built is certified through Green Built North Carolina; everything from product selection to the construction process stresses green technologies and energy efficiency. JAG homes top the 15% efficiency upgrade required by Energy Star; most of them reach a 30% to 60% energy efficiency premium. Combine all of this with JAG’s keen sense of design, attention to detail and singular craftsmanship, and you can understand why JAG’s houses stand out as some of the most sought-after in Asheville.

Lots of details go into making a new build green. Some of the things JAG takes into serious consideration are: site measures like infill construction, erosion control, native planting and groundcover and runoff control; building and structural details such as proper waterproofing and drainage, efficient framing, windows and insulation; high-efficiency heating and cooling; and options for solar power energy use.

Mosaic Realty Invites You to a 6-Home Spring Release at Craggy Park

Craggy Park West Asheville New Homes

Explore West Asheville’s Premier Green-Building Community

Craggy Park, located in the heart of eclectic West Asheville, N.C., is a sustainable urban community featuring 45 Energy Star homes nestled amid streamside trails, organic gardens and community gathering spaces in a park-like setting. Closely connected to the vibrant Haywood Road business district by a greenway trail and a short stroll up Dunwell Avenue, Craggy Park features homes that blend modern with Arts and Crafts elements, crafted with a “smart and sustainable design” philosophy. The community park on Fox Creek and adjacent urban woodland conservation area make it easy to stay connected to nature in your very own backyard.

Custom designed by W2 Architects and built by the craftsmen at JAG Construction, Craggy Park’s beautiful state-of-the-art green homes provide plans suited to every lifestyle. The homes – each certified by GreenBuilt North Carolina, a voluntary, statewide green building program – are designed for easy maintenance, leaving lots of free time to enjoy everything Asheville has to offer.

The Park

Craggy Park’s design philosophy of clustering homes and providing ample common space allows for a relaxing outdoor-centric community. Our park includes a nature trail with benches, a lawn by the stream, two little free libraries, a tree house, an over-sized double swing, organic gardens, a fire pit, a picnic area with a community grill and herb spiral gardens.

What Makes Craggy Park So Green?

Craggy Park’s walkable and bikeable urban infill location optimizes use of existing infrastructure and minimizes the development’s environmental impact. A clustered-home site design preserves green space, existing trees, and nearby habitats, and native, drought-tolerant and edible landscaping provides a habitat for local flora and fauna.

From re-use of bricks from a former on-site home, to milling of trees taken down during grading for lumber, the construction process also boasts minimal environmental impact. Preservation and re-use of topsoil during grading; construction waste management and recycling; and effective stormwater run-off controls throughout construction keep things green from the start.

And then there are the homes: Energy Star and GreenBuilt-certified; a high-efficiency mechanical design; third-party blower door and duct-blaster tested homes; low and no-VOC materials and finishes for optimal indoor air quality; Energy Star appliances and lighting; day-lighting techniques for great natural light; low-flow plumbing fixtures; durable material use (30-year roof, 50-year siding); and 6" walls and formaldehyde-free insulation are just some of the many green features of each Craggy Park home.

"Craggy Park is proud to have partnered with the City of Asheville and Mountain True to provide access and a greenway entrance to this exciting new trail system,” said Mike Figura, Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty owner and real estate broker for Craggy Park. “By providing a public easement and building a trail through our urban nature preserve, we can link the community with a piece of city-owned property that was previously landlocked, and provide our residents access to a fantastic urban forest."

A sustainable urban community featuring streamside trails and organic gardens against a park-like backdrop, Craggy Park is situated within easy walking distance of West Asheville’s vibrant Haywood Road corridor. Its 45 phase I green-built homes, featuring modern, clean lines and bright, open designs, are responsibly constructed for low environmental impact and Craggy Park Entrancesustainable living.
