    Since 1978, Flat Creek Land & Building has built many of the Asheville area's finest homes, ranging from mountain rustic to clean contemporary to high-end luxury.  From the company's start as "S.P. Zarnowski's Custom Log Homes, Built to Last", Flat Creek has grown to become one of Western North Carolina's  most trusted builders of superior-quality custom homes & remodels. 


Flat Creek's job is to work with the homeowner and design team to bring a vision to life, incorporating the top tradesmen & contacts in the building industry, a reputation for impeccable standards and a practical nature, and over 40 years of experience building locally.  The purpose is to keep projects on budget & on schedule, and to operate at the highest standards.


Flat Creek is a small and efficient family outfit which means clients benefit from having a Zarnowski family member (one of the two main contractors or the project supervisor) on site at all times when work is being done..  Rather than managing many different jobs at once, Flat Creek focuses on a couple of main projects at a time, allowing a general contractor to be present on site to meet with clients, make time-sensitive decisions, provide consistent direction to subcontractors, and jump in with a hammer when needed.  


Flat Creek's company mission is: to efficiently build exceptional homes using proven high-quality materials; to manage each project effectively and provide a safe & organized workplace for the team; to create and maintain lasting, trusting relationships with clients who become lifelong friends.


Using high-quality, energy efficient materials and a conscientious waste-not philosophy, Flat Creek has always been guided by green-built design & construction.
