Well, here we are again time to post in the blog. Well let me tell you a little something about the new office in western North Carolina. It is located about 20 miles south of Asheville in Hendersonville. We are one block from Main Street on Church Street. We share the building with Glennwood Custom Builders. They are in Suite A and we are in Suite B. Here is a picture of the front door. Actually, the front door is being replaced with a wood door. We are just waiting on the custom hardware which is a few weeks out. There is a backlit LED sign to go above the door to match the one in the window. It will eventually be moved out to the gable end when the building is renovated.
Later this summer, the building owner is supposed to be renovating the exterior of the building to a design we did for him.
Corten panels above reclaimed siding with heavy timber beam and king posts gables on new stone and timber columns at each entry. This should be quite the improvement over the green metal mansard and brick veneer existing exterior.
Inside we mixed up the interiors with an ultra-modern reception area and a rustic conference room. We added a Jim Harrison giclée of one of his famous Coca Cola barns. Jim was a favorite South Carolina painter from Denmark, South Carolina about 3 hours south of us.
In the work area, we used what we know works and copied the Edwards office for the desks. We put in a similar Kitchenette, but stayed with the theme in the office and had the cabinets painted a custom color, purple of course.
Now we are marketing to land a few projects. Then we will start to hire some local talent and train them to the TAB ways. We started off by joining the Asheville Home Builders Association. We have recently joined the Land of the Sky Association of Realtors (Asheville’s Board) and the Hendersonville Board of Realtors. Getting emails out to all of the members announcing the opening of this office was a challenge, but was successful. Currently we are licensed in Colorado, North Carolina, South Carolina and Montana. We are nationally certified and can be licensed in any state. If you have any need of an Architect, please contact TAB Associates, Inc.
