I was proud to be featured in this Sunday’s Asheville Citizen-Times Ideas section. Dale Neal wrote a great article on the local housing market, wisely pointing out that supporting local shelter through using locally grown, sustainable building materials and products is just as important as supporting the local food movement. Using local products related to the building industry has a positive ripple effect on businesses throughout your community.
Dale and I spoke about how the recent uptick in the housing market was affecting business. We also talked at length about trying to promote local business and how effective the local food movement has been. Appalachian Designs is eager to remain part of the local movement on the forest products, home furnishings and home building front. Check out the entire article here.
