The Herrington Homes Way

Personal Attention
With over 35 years of experience in the custom home building Herrington Homes is in a unique position to guide you in all facets of custom home building. We will be personally involved with every aspect of your build and we are dedicated to your complete satisfaction.

We're able to assist you in every step of the build process from lot selection, optimum location of the home on the site, to the home's design and the selection of materials and finishes. Nick takes a personal role and is onsite to oversee the construction process from beginning to end ensuring a consistent high level of quality and craftsmanship. To maintain this personal involvement and attention to detail, we only commit to building a limited number of houses each year and we want you to be a part of that.
An Integrated Approach
All custom home builds are unique but Herrington Homes are built "site specific". This means all factors in the building's structural design are tailored to the unique requirements of your lot and home design. We work to perform site engineering tests to determine the suitability of the soils composition, density for its load bearing capabilities as well as its "shear strength" for erosion control.

This information is essential to the structural design of the foundation system on the sloped terrain present here in the mountains. The soil data is supplied to a structural engineer along with a topographical survey of the lot (indicating the slope of the build site) as well as the calculated load points of the roof and floor systems from the truss engineer so as to design an integrated structure specific to your build.
Superior level of Construction
Building strictly to "code" isn't good enough for us. All Herrington Homes are built to a higher standard. "Code" is a minimal benchmark. We build our homes to meet or exceed "Energy Star" home efficiency requirements. We exceed the minimum requirements of "code", be it in structural design, construction material selections, moisture barriers, insulation, or the efficiency and versatility of the heating and air conditioning, plumbing and electrical systems. All of the areas proven to provide the homeowner with real benefits enhancing the living experience and enjoyment of their Herrington Home.
A Dedicated "Team" Of Craftsmen Working Together In Harmony
Herrington Homes believes in a team approach. We don't change contractors on every build based on their bid price alone as do some builders. The various tradesmen contracted to build your home have been selected over our years working in Western North Carolina because they not only provide exceptional craftsmanship but will work in a synergistic environment providing a harmonious, productive and friendly atmosphere. Our contractors know each other and look out for one another's work. They enjoy working on our homes and with one another. That positive attitude is reflected in the consistent quality of their work. All of our contractors are licensed (as required) and fully insured.
A Stress Free Build
Although building a custom home is a huge undertaking, your home building experience should be stress free and enjoyable! With our personal involvement guiding you in every aspect of the build process, the experience can be much easier and fun!

Providing custom design services as well as bidding and building from your plans and specifications we offer a unique personalized building experience at competitive prices! Herrington Homes has built hundreds of homes for satisfied customers over the years. Many were built for owners who were living in another part of the country and were not able to visit the build site during construction. We were able to meet or exceed their expectations and we have the letters of recommendation to prove it. We would love to share with you the positive building experiences your neighbors have had building with Herrington Homes!
Arguably, one of the most important things in our business is being thorough. Unfortunately, we’ve all heard horror stories of bad contractors, and this can understandably make the custom home decision scary. We are completely committed to vetting anyone involved with your project, and cover every detail of the process with you before our team even gets to the build site. Herrington Homes uses state-of-the-art project management software to consistently keep our clients in the loop throughout their entire build, and our highly-skilled team of construction managers, project managers, and project coordinators create checks and balances to ensure your home is built correctly and beyond your expectations.

The Herrington Homes Dream Team

About Luxury Home Builder Asheville nick and laura Herrington Homes LLC

Nick & Laura Cioce


Nick Cioce’s journey into home construction had a humble beginning, working with his father as a teenager sweeping up around jobsites in Naples, FL. He learned early on how the smallest parts of the project could turn out to be the most important. His parents instilled in him an eye for detail that has earned Herrington Homes accolades for over 35 years.

After attending Villanova University, Nick worked as a CEDIA certified design specialist for high end audio/visual equipment and low voltage systems for both residential and commercial applications. His territory, all over the east coast, taught him the importance of maintaining relationships and communicating with clients, especially if they were at a distance.

In 2012, Nick joined Herrington Homes constructing custom homes and continuing to build great relationships in Western North Carolina. He has also maintained an unlimited building contractor’s license, the highest qualification achievable in North Carolina and is consistently working on continuing education through the National Association of Home Builders with an emphasis on aging in place and green construction techniques.

As a second generation custom home builder, Nick draws inspiration from his parent’s success and looks to build on it by offering superior construction methods with personalized attention to detail. Over the years he developed a team of dedicated craftsmen and an integrated approach in order to offer a stress-free building experience.

In his spare time, Nick enjoys exploring the mountains of Western North Carolina with his wife and daughter. They have made Arden, NC their home where they are raising their family and growing their custom home and remodeling business.
