Fall will begin next month and many will turn from the idea of a beach home to a vacation home in the mountains just west of Washington, D.C.
Some people may ask the question, “Why would I want to build a vacation home in the mountains?” The best answer to that question is because it’s a short drive from the Washington/Northern Virginia area to the peaceful Allegheny Mountains. It’s easy for those living in the congestion to get in the car and within a couple hours, be in a peaceful setting. The proximity and cost of mountain real estate is attractive to those wanting — or needing — a change of pace.
“There are a lot of people from the city who want a place to vacation to or retire to,” says Willie Eby, owner of Mt. Tabor Builders in Clear Spring, MD. “They contact us about designing and building a home in the mountains, usually around the Berkeley Springs area or just north of Hancock in Maryland. It’s a beautiful area and seems further away from the city, than it actually is.”
Vacation Mountain Home Styles
Mt. Tabor’s building experts have constructed many homes over the last two decades. They specialize in log and craftsman-style homes, which are perfect designs for mountain homes. Most are open floor plans, featuring lots of windows and large outdoor living areas. Mt. Tabor Lead Designer Royce Eby encourages clients to bring ideas, dreams and images, so he can help create exactly what the client envisions. The designers can even create a digital drawing — like the one here — to show what the custom vacation home will look like upon completion.
Each Mt. Tabor home is built with high quality building products. Those products include Andersen Windows, Therma-Tru entry doors and GAF Shingle Systems. This all adds up to make each home air-tight and energy-efficient. Every home is engineered and built to last, because Mt. Tabor uses the highest building standards. They believe integrity in the work leads to satisfied clients and great testimonials.
Here is one from Craig, who hired Mt. Tabor to build a home in Berkeley Springs after retiring.
“It’s been an absolutely wonderful experience,” said Craig, who left Northern Virginia for a mountain home with his wife. “We knew what we wanted to do when we set up a meeting with Royce (Eby) and Willie (Eby). It was a great opportunity to get to know them as special guys, as both human beings and craftsman.”
