Design Concepts for TONBO MEADOW
- December 05, 2013
Tonbo Meadow, Wilmington's first true low-impact development, is finally starting to unfold. Visualizing interiors based on plans alone is sometimes challenging, so I have been working on some concept boards to help future Tonbo homeowners visualize their future home:

Carpenter Home Progress
- November 13, 2013
We are wrapping things up at the Carpenter house this week! Tucked away on Shinncreek Dr, off of Greenville Loop Rd in Wilmington, this custom home is a perfect mix of modern and traditional coastal. With water views throughout, and a sunny, elevated cupola, the home was definitely designed to compliment the land and take full advantage of the surrounding views of the Intracoastal Waterway. Hats off to our architects at B+O Design Studio of Wilmington for the home and landscape designs.
The family plans on moving in at the end of the week. I managed to walk through as our team was wrapping some things up a couple days ago. Here are a few pictures of this beautiful custom home by Fasse Construction & Development, Inc.

TONBO MEADOW WETLAND
- September 17, 2013
The wetland at Tonbo Meadow is nearly complete! Fasse Construction's owner, Pamela Fasse, got down and dirty during the installation process as she 'dug in' to help plant the Cape Fear native wetland plants. We were also fortunate enough to have a group of engineers from the Raleigh area come to Wilmington to tour the Tonbo Meadow site, and take a closer look at our stormwater wetland, in addition to several other notable engineered water management features on the 3+ acre site.
North Carolina engineers exploring the stormwater management on the site...
The Tonbo Meadow site features a wetland versus a retention pond, which is traditionally used in most infill developments in the area. This new wetland will accommodate on-site runoff, as well as pre-development runoff from adjacent properties. There are also several community rain gardens on the site, in addition to drainage swales and infiltration systems, all designed to properly manage runoff and maximize water quality protection.
On the lighter side, these features are created in a way that preserves native plants on the site, while incorporating other native species that invite butterflies, birds, bats, and of course our personal fave...DRAGONFLIES
It is so exciting to see the progress at Tonbo Meadow and we promise to keep you in the loop on the evolving project! To secure your spot in the chic, green Tonbo Meadow community, or for more information on the development, please contact Fasse Construction's office at (910) 679-4277.
PROGRESS AT TONBO MEADOW
- September 10, 2013
Installation of Phase one of the landscaping at our eco-chic, low impact development, Tonbo Meadow is underway! The landscaping team from Element Outdoor Living, headed by Element's owner and personal friend of ours, Blair Walton, will be installing the irrigation, wetland, and additional plantings on the 3+ acre property.
In just a couple weeks, Tonbo Meadow will be transformed, and we we can't wait to see how much the site evolves from its farmland roots! Previously known as the 'Peterson Farm,' where a local Wilmington family raised chickens, milk cattle, and grew a small number of food crops, it is part of Fasse Construction's mission to carry on this appreciation and respect for the land. Not only do the attached town homes at Tonbo Meadow have a much smaller building footprint, but the town homes also embrace the latest in sustainable materials, technology, and building techniques that reduce energy consumption. Tonbo Meadow is designed to be a community of people who want their home to embrace nature and live lighter on the land.
If you are on Greenville Loop Rd and happen to drive by, be sure to give us a big HONK and show your support for this awesome sustainable project by Fasse Construction.
