Bay Views’ rugged aesthetic gives this new home a sense of age and history. Chinked reclaimed barn timbers greet you in the foyer to set the tone of a timeworn rustic cabin. A rubble stone fireplace on the screen porch, barn board walls of various colors in nearly every room, and extensive use of reclaimed materials throughout create an aged Appalachian feel.
Tried and true, Elk Lodge is a magnificent example of a full log home that perfectly displays the rustic elegance that is at the core of Benson Custom Homes philosophy. This home was designed to be a lodge style vacation home that would accommodate a large number of friends and family comfortably and simultaneously.
Tall Timbers is an exceptionally designed lakefront home that provides room to entertain large groups or simply relax and enjoy the spectacular views from the octagon sunroom. The timber frame structure was painstakingly crafted from Douglas Fir using centuries old joinery techniques and other high end natural building materials.
Restoration, remodel and new construction all came together in this project to create a modernized home with vintage flair. Originally built in the 1920’s as a vertical log cabin, the owners’ quest was to expand in size and incorporate modern amenities in this home without sacrificing any of the character and charm that it had acquired throughout the years.
Tucked away in a quiet little cove, White Pine puts a fresh spin on the typical log home. Sleek lines paired with modern finishes gives this cabin a light and airy feel while still maintaining a rustic elegance. Exposed Douglas fir rafters found throughout the home enhance the house’s cabin like character.

In the first half of my career I was in the contracting business. I got to know a lot of contractors, both good and bad. The character of the people that you work with is always important, and this is especially true in the construction business where you’re trusting someone to build your dream home.
Our custom mountain home here in WNC was completed almost 8 years ago and we couldn’t be happier. Steve Hammett was directly in charge of our project, and I can honestly say that he’s one of the most competent people that I’ve ever met in the construction industry.
During much of our construction project my wife and I were still in South Florida and Steve’s communication with us was superb. His coordination with the design team, the subcontractors, the inspectors, our local home owner’s building committee and ourselves couldn’t have been better. Building our dream home with Steve’s help was a pleasurable experience.
As I said our home was completed almost 8 years ago, and has been out of the warranty period for almost 7 years. Steve still stays in touch, and when we need anything at all we still call or text him and he gets back to us immediately. I can’t tell you how many times he’s helped us with various things here at the house since it’s completion, almost always on his own time.
If you want to work with someone who is as honest as they come, has integrity that’s regrettably hard to find in today’s world and who will have your interests at heart I would recommend Steve Hammett without any hesitation or qualification. If you’d like to speak with me personally I’ll be glad to talk with you about our experience. Just ask Steve for my number!
Steve J- Hendersonville, NC
Living in Charleston, SC and dealing with health issues of elderly parents, it was difficult to check on the building site like we had for our other two builds. Steve, as we now refer to him as "Our Soldier on the Hill", kept us abreast to events taking place and schedules we needed to be mindful of. We had GREAT piece of mind. Steve instilled confidence, showed great attention to detail, and was thorough in all respects. Would gladly use him again for any additional projects and he has become a true friend.
Debbie and Paul -Charleston SC
We are very impressed with the quality of workmanship from your people and subcontractors. We were particularly impressed with the care and concern you yourself took in positioning our house on the lot. I believe this is a characteristic only a few select contractors have. You are definitely one of the select.
Jim and Ann
You can be proud of your work and your employees. We heard horror stories about building and remodeling, but you made this job a real joy. We have had fifty years of love and soul-soothing happiness in our cabin and now we look forward to many more.
Bob and Rosemary
We want to thank each one of you for the beautiful job you did on our cabin. The good decisions, craftsmanship and concern for the process made this project very enjoyable and very satisfying. Thank you for building our home!
Lyle and Suzanne
Kathy and I are very happy with how the house is turning out. We’re pleased with the overall design of the house and the finish selections we have made. We know it will be a very comfortable and beautiful place to retire. This certainly has been a learning curve for both of us, but your staff has been very helpful and patient.Thanks again to the Benson crew for making our dreams come true.
Steve and Kathy
When we first met, we felt confident you would be able to build a house that our family would enjoy for years. We have never lost that confidence. Benson Custom Homes was great to work with - you offered great suggestions, listened to our ideas and steered us correctly when we were indecisive. Thanks for everything.
