Christopher Fox’s approach to his building practice of creating a healthy home differentiates his notable style and technique, producing quality lifelong homes for each client.

With a focus on sustainability and creating a space that becomes one with the environment that surrounds it, Christopher Fox of Christopher Fox Builders makes it a priority to create homes that fit the home owners’ needs while minimizing impact on the land.

“A house is more than just where you live, it is where you create a life and memories. I build each home as though my family will be living there, showing an attention to detail that I would hope to see in any home that I live in.”

From a development-minded family, Christopher worked in carpentry throughout his younger years and learned the ins and outs of creating a home.  Acquiring his General Contractors License and forming Christopher Fox Builders in 2003, was a natural progression with his diverse skills and love for working with his hands.

“Growing up in Savannah Georgia, and later spending time in Pisgah National Forest, I knew that I wanted to put down roots in the Asheville area,” says Fox on how he chose North Carolina. “I have always enjoyed spending time on the river and exploring the woods, and even spent personal time on the property that is now Olivette.”

Christopher quickly learned the depth and value of fostering a highly skilled and dedicated team of experts. This model allows him to effectively and efficiently carry out the design and construction decisions that bring a project to life.
