New homes are coming to the North Carolina mountains. They may be the result of new highways being built in the Piedmont Crescent or they may be part of a national trend toward exurban development. They may be vacation homes for residents of the region's growing cities or first homes for telecommuters. With every new trend in technology and transportation, the immovable mountains seem closer for a determined group of people seeking new ways to live, work, and recreate.
