WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT GREEN BUILDING
RESNET is the independent, national nonprofit organization that homeowners trust to improve home energy efficiency and realize substantial savings on their utility bills.
WELCOME TO NICHOLSON AND SUN
As our name acknowledges, at our core, our company was formed to address our planet’s relationship with the Sun. We are not a building company that adds on green features, we are a “green company” that has chosen to build homes, because that is where we think our talents can have the greatest impact in helping curb climate change. While we know that there are many environmental offenders involved in home construction and subsequent home usage, we prioritize, addressing those connected to greenhouse gases, solar power, and energy efficiency. Armed with this approach we build our homes from the foundation up utilizing innovative techniques and design, carbon conscious materials, and state of the art, energy saving technologies, to create the best houses on the planet and for the planet!

Green Additions & Retrofit Renovations
An incredibly rare piece of urban-rural land, Phase II is just down the road from Green Path Commons Phase I. Perched high above the French Broad River with views of it and the City, these 15 new lots will carry the baton of Nicholson and Sun building forward.
SOLD OUT Phase I is an intentionally designed and created eco cluster of net zero homes located in the City of Asheville. Less then 1 mile from New Belgium Brewery, its central location makes it minutes from downtown, river arts district, Haywood Rd, and the French Broad river and greenways. It has a large designated common area with community gardens and pavilion house.
Together we can turn one of these sites into the green home that fits you best.
