Sustainable Homes


What if you could find devoted artisans to turn those dreams into a sun-splashed kitchen or front porch for evening chats… if your home reflected you, not a big brand carbon copy?


What if your new home protected not only the health of all involved, from the builders to your family to our ecosystem — but also inspired thriving lives?


What if there was a way to keep snow-day drafts outside where they belong, your living space breezy and cool during our Blue Ridge Mountain summers, and your utility bills low at the same time?


Introducing Blue Iris Homes…

We’re modern artisan builders devoted to happy, healthy home dwellers and a sustainable future for our community and planet.

“Their work was impeccable. The crew arrived on time, when promised, and did the work. Steve always returned my calls promptly. You can tell they take great pride in their profession and they like to do it right the first time. I would recommend Sugar Hollow for any project.”

- Marti Russell

"I didn't have firm ideas about some of the design features of the home, and I really appreciated the informed opinions and helpful input from Steve, Karl, the architect, etc. I'm very appreciative of the great value I'm getting. Any time I have questions or concerns I know I can reach Steve. We've been able to choose quality finishes throughout the home and still have stayed within the budget. I will definitely use them again in the future. If you go with Sugar Hollow you can expect clear communication, quality finishes, expert advice, and the comfort of working with people you can trust."
