About Us

James Carr, owner of Mountain Town Carpentry, pictured with his wife Sunny, and their dog Lilly.Mountain Town Carpentry is owned and operated by James Carr of Asheville, NC. James has been building and remodeling homes since 1993. His carpentry experience began in Winter Park, CO building custom post and beam style log homes designed to withstand mountain winters at 9000 feet with 500 inches of annual snowfall. When he wasn’t enjoying the skiing, James went on to build stacked log and several stick frame homes over the next ten years. His remodeling skills were born of necessity when James and his wife Sunny bought a dated vacation cabin and transformed it into a home for themselves in three months.
