This project is a family endeavor built in the spirit of the historic architecture that has made Asheville a coveted destination for decades.
This project was conceived by Chris Mriscin, an Oakley resident and entrepreneur, who wanted to see quality and craftsmanship brought to his own neighborhood. He pitched this idea of a green, arts and crafts style community to his father, Len Mriscin, who has always been inspired by historic architecture, and Wanoca Cottages was born!
They decided to enlist the expertise of general contractor, Mike Sokol, from Wisconsin. Mike has been a long-time family friend and builder of luxury timber homes for the last 50 years. He began building at the young age of 14 and his passion for creativity, quality, and style made him one of the premier mid-western custom home builders. He has been highlighted in Timber Frame Magazine and has presented at numerous home shows across the nation with his unique flair for dramatic presentation and his attention to detail.
When Mike heard about this project he was excited to embark on this new journey and is now an Asheville resident. We are proud to bring his skill and artisanry to our community!
