There must be more to life than having everything!
— Maurice Sendak

Simply Home is an offshoot of Hughes Construction.  Wally and Shawna Hughes are the owners of the business.  Wally is a licensed and insured General Contractor in NC with 30 years of construction experience.  Shawna's creativity helps in designing the homes and she does much of the administrative part of the business.  We have built homes in Buncombe, Henderson, Polk and Rutherford counties.  We prefer to build small and efficient homes.  The profit may not be as big as building large homes but there is lots of satisfaction knowing we are building a quality home that reduces it's footprint.  There are 4000 square foot homes that are Gold LEED certified but they still use a lot of energy and used an enormous amount of resources to build.  That doesn't feel too sustainable to us.  

We are not a high volume builder.  Even when building was at it's peak, the most homes we built in a year was 5.  Our focus is on personal service and making sure your home gets the attention it deserves.  With proper oversight and sensible scheduling we can promise your home will be done within 6 months.  Most of the homes we have built have been done in under 4 months.

By building a smaller home we have more time to enjoy doing things we love.  Living in WNC gives us lots of places to go hiking and kayaking.  We also like to garden and cook.  Moving into a smaller home has been a challenge but not as tough as you might imagine.  Our daughter, Alexa, is attending Appalachian State.  We also share this space with 2 dogs and 3 cats. We have a place for everything we need and it is peaceful having less clutter.
