    Flat Creek Land & Building has built fine homes in the Asheville area since 1978.  From the company's start constructing rustic log cabins, Flat Creek Land & Building has grown to become one of Asheville's most trusted builders of superior-quality custom homes & remodels.  Our job is to work with you and your architect to bring your vision to life, incorporating the best contacts in the industry, our reputation for high standards and a practical nature, and 40 years of experience building locally.


We at Flat Creek are a family business and a tight crew-- Founder Steve Zarnowski and son Stephen Zarnowski- both Builders and Licensed General Contractors;  Donald Sharp- Builder, honorary family member,  and first-rate craftsman;  Jenny Z. Lane- Administrator &  Job Site Assistant.  Rather than managing many different projects around town, we focus on 1 or 2 main projects at a time, which allows us to be present on site to meet with our clients, make split-second judgment calls, provide consistent direction to our team of subcontractors, and "jump in with a hammer" where needed.  Our purpose is to keep your project on budget & on schedule, and to operate at the highest standards.


Our mission is simple: to efficiently build exceptional homes using high quality materials; to manage each project effectively and provide a safe & organized workplace for our team; to create and maintain lasting, trusting relationships with clients who become our 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.
