    Since 1978, Flat Creek Land & Building has been constructing Asheville's finest homes, ranging from rustic to 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 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.  Our purpose is to keep your project on budget & on schedule, and to operate at the highest standards.


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.  Instead of managing many different jobs at once, we focus on 1 or 2 main projects at a time, allowing us to be present on site to meet with our clients, make split-second decisions, provide consistent direction to our team of subcontractors, and jump in with a hammer when needed.  


Our company mission is: 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.
