cJem Designs provides Western North Carolina homeowners, builders, and developers with space-efficient designs for home transformations, custom homes, and boutique developments.


Home Transformations

If you live in Western North Carolina, you know this gorgeous sliver of the country is a dream location to live in. With all the beautiful natural features surrounding you, why shouldn't your living space reflect the stunning area you live in? We can help you revamp your WNC house to make it your dream home. 

Custom Homes

Are you looking to move to or relocate within the Asheville, North Carolina area and live in a sustainable elegant home? Our close relationships with WNC builders and contractors allow for you to experience a smooth ride from the initial design process to the moment you step through the threshold of your new home.

Boutique Developments

If you're a builder, developer, or investor in Western North Carolina, you recognize housing in the Asheville area is in high demand with an onslaught of population growth that has no sign of slowing. Let us help you capitalize on this opportunity by designing spec houses for what many Asheville "transplants" want in a home.
