Natural Pool COMING SOON to Tonbo Meadow

Tonbo Meadow, off of Greenville Loop Rd. in Wilmington, NC has yet another sustainable feature in the works. As this unique, low-impact development begins to evolve into everything we hoped it would be, we began getting several inquiries about whether or not a pool would be a future amenity.

After some extensive research, we have started the initial planning phases to make this a reality! Teaming up with our landscape architect, from B+O Designs, we are in the early planning phase of this innovative feature at Tonbo Meadow.

Natural Pool

Natural pools have crystal clear water, and require no chemicals to maintain, because they are actually self-cleaning mini-ecosystems. Surprisingly, natural pools even have lower maintenance than conventional pools. This Goodhousekeeping article features a few examples worth pondering.

Natural pools are very popular in many areas of Europe and are considered a  much healthier alternative to conventional pools. Using a biological filter (gravel filter or plant filter), water is circulated by a pump to create a clear, clean, chemical-free swimming retreat. With so many different ways to design these pools, it should be interesting to watch this project unfold. They can look almost identical to traditional pools, or have the feel of a natural swimming hole. Can't wait to see how the final design turns out at Tonbo Meadow!

Fasse bldgs.

As many of you may have noticed, we have recently changed our company name and logo! For those of you who did not know, I present the new Fasse bldgs. logo...

Fasse bldgs.

We are so thrilled to see how our company is growing, evolving, and changing as we begin to channel all of our skills, talents, experience, and passion in the right direction.

The name Fasse bldgs. was created to portray a life-long vision of owner, Pam Fasse. That vision, "It's about being a good steward of the land, passing along a legacy of environmental responsibility. Now is the time to embrace our changing environment and move beyond old boundaries to a more productive and healthier morality..." is reflected by the circle (plant earth) and the flight of the birds (the uncontrolled freedom of nature). The color green streamlines the vision into a direct and forceful statement: "Fasse (green) bldgs." (But do expect to see the logo in a selective palette of mod colors as well!)

When the name and logo appear as one, we portray the ecologically free-spirited nature of Fasse bldgs., while we continue to create efficiencies and value for homeowners, and always push the envelope on environmental sustainability.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support and interest in Fasse bldgs. We look forward to this new chapter, and to embracing our new name along with all of its deeply rooted symbolism. Stay posted for more information and updates!

Announcing Our Newest Project

We are so excited to announce our newest project in the downtown Wilmington area: Rogue Townhomes. Stay tuned for more information and details on this upcoming project.

Architect:Rob Romero

Listing Agent:Randy Harmon

Rogue Townhomes


The infrastructure at Tonbo Meadow is near completion on Greenville Loop Rd., and we are narrowing down our design choices for the homes. The eco-chic townhomes will have a unique modern appearance, with two floor plans to choose from. Tonbo Meadow residents will LOVE the stylish, local, AND eco-friendly materials integrated into our designs, with options such as refurbished/reclaimed wood, recycled countertops, stained concrete, and custom cabinetry/storage.

The Sign is Up at Tonbo Meadow!

Big thanks to R. Mended Metals for their work on our new entry sign at Tonbo Meadow! The mix of earth tones, woods, and metals were used for the sign and privacy fence to reflect the modern, green design approach embraced throughout this development. The wood is adorned with copper dragonflies, which are the origin of the development's name. In Japanese culture, the dragonfly (tonbo) represents strength and happiness, thus defining it as one of the most resilient insects on the planet.

Tonbo Meadow embraces the dragonfly legend by introducing 14 two and three-story mid-century modern style homes that encompass a smaller, smarter footprint. We are beyond excited to introduce these homes to the community!

Tonbo Meadow Sign

Tonbo Meadow!

Tonbo Meadow, Wilmington's first true low-impact development (LID), is underway! 

With homes starting in the 300k range, the Tonbo Meadow development will offer 2 different home styles to choose from--The Townhome (TH) style, and the Loft (L) style. Fasse Construction & Development, Inc. has collaborated with Scott Ogden, and his wife Lara Berkely of B+0 Design Studio for their creative, eco-conscious approach to architectural and environmental design. Below you will find the Tonbo Meadow master plan, including the building names. Each duplex/triplex was named after a dragonfly species native to the area. This is in lieu of Tonbo, meaning 'Dragonfly' in Japanese.

We are still taking reservations! For more information, or to secure your spot in the Tonbo Meadow Please Call Fasse Construction at (910) 679-4277.

SPRING has SPRUNG! Get your home and garden ready

Spring in Fasse's Tonbo Meadow            Spring in the Tonbo Meadow....Wilmington's first true low-impact development (LID)

At 7:02 a.m. this morning, Wednesday, March 20, the sun crossed directly over the Earth's equator during a moment known as the vernal equinox when both day and night are about equal -- also the official start of Spring! This means, it's time to start thinking about getting your home and garden prepped for the new season. 

Here are a few tips from Fasse Construction to get your home and garden Spring ready!


  • Inspect the roof for winter damage:  leaks, missing or broken shingles or tiles. 
  • Clean gutters and downspouts. Check for leaks, misalignment, or damage.
  • Check painted surfaces for flaking. Paint or touch-up exterior. How about a new color trim? Check siding for loose nails, damage, or rot. Power wash porches and decks to remove mildew and fungus.
  • Make sure all doors and windows close and lock properly.
  • Wash windows, put up screens and patch any holes. Check caulking around windows and doors. Re-caulk if necessary.
  • Remove all debris from the yard. Clear dead foliage and weeds from flowerbeds, fertilize, and lay mulch.
  • Begin spring landscaping projects. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, a simple project like a small wildflower garden will bring bliss and beauty to your home for the new season!
  • Inspect, clean and repair outdoor furniture.
  • Check for termites and insects-call exterminator if needed.
  • Flush your hot water heater to remove accumulated sediment


  • Open windows to freshen and ventilate. Light a fresh linen candle…my go-to Spring scent for the home.
  • Add Flowers! Head to the local farmer’s market or nursery and add some fresh color to your home. My spring faves are daffodils, tulips, daisies, and peonies.
  • Clean and reorganize. Lighten your load and get rid of the things that clutter your living space. They don’t call it ‘Spring Cleaning’ for nothing!
  • Flip your mattress and change your bedding. Put the heavy winter quilts and blankets away, and substitute with lighter colorful options. Wash pillowcases and curtains to reduce allergens and dander.
  • Air out throw rugs and shampoo carpet.
  • Look into ways you can make your home more energy efficient this Spring. This includes assessing light bulbs, weather strips, HVAC systems, and more.

Fasse Construction in the Wilmington Star News!

Fasse Construction & Development, Inc. was featured in the Star News this morning! Pam Fasse discussed her infill developments Midori on 29th and Tonbo Meadow and their significance in the Wilmington area. With very little developable space left in Wilmington, this prompts more inward development strategies like Fasse’s. According to the article, only about 10-20 percent of the city is open for new development. In the past, the city had plans to grow by extending its boundaries, but changed annexation rules now emphasize inward growth, exemplified by Fasse Construction’s projects.

Tonbo Meadow, Fasse’s low impact infill development (LID) on Greenville Loop Rd. in Wilmington is now underway and the infrastructure is scheduled to be complete next month. This 14-lot development uses about 3 acres of land, which is being developed into eco-friendly semi-attached duplexes and triplexes to maximize the development potential with a green building approach.

Vertical construction should begin shortly after the infrastructure is complete, as several future residents are eager to call Tonbo Meadow their home by the end of the summer.

For more information on the push for infill developments in Wilmington NC, check out today's article in The Star News!

Another quick time lapse video capturing all the progress on the first triplex at Tonbo Meadow. These clips were taken the last few days in January, during the ice and snow we were experiencing throughout Wilmington. It's interesting to watch the progress and watch the clouds, ice and snow roll in! 

Custom Home in Mason Knoll

Verde Painting

The two older homes on the future Tonbo Meadow site were demolished yesterday and it was quite a site! This brings Fasse Construction just one step closer to developing Wilmington’s first low impact development (LID), Tonbo Meadow.

Tonbo Meadow takes an integrated systems approach to a healthy, comfortable, conservational home and community. Tonbo Meadow is a 14-lot family cluster development that will be on a 3+acre parcel off of Greenville Loop Road just south of Bradley Creek Elementary School.  At the rear of the community there is a one-acre meadow park for the private use of those in the community as well as a communal recreation building. Termed Wilmington’s “Real Estate Gold Coast,’ the Greenville Loop area is known for its fair share of desirable new housing developments. Aside from the promise of an innovative, functional modern architectural design, what makes this development so unique is Fasse Construction & Development’s green development approach encouraging conservation and the use of on-site natural features to protect water quality.

It’s a concept prior to the development’s conception that has piqued the interest of green builders across the state and has forced the city to re-examine its own polices addressing low-impact development. It is beyond exciting and we are so pleased that half of the development has already been reserved before ground was broken on the site! To reserve a lot, or for more information, please call our office at (910) 679-4277. Let Fasse Construction help you find your perfect shade of green.

Tonbo Meadow Triplex Update

All windows and doors are in at the Tonbo Meadow triplex. The plumbing is in and the electric is nearing completion. You can finally start to see what these townhomes are going to look like! Here are a couple pictures I snapped over the weekend

With all the hype about ‘going green’ these days, have you ever wondered just how green your home is?

As an eco-friendly builder and developer, Fasse Construction specializes in custom green homes in and around Wilmington, NC. The first step in our development process is finding out what our clients value most in their home/life, and just how green they would like their future custom home to be. We also consider what is most important to them as far as environmental/social impact, functionality, interior/exterior options, home atmosphere preference, and any additional customizable options that we hope will better serve their needs and lifestyle. With this in mind, it is often necessary to evaluate one’s current home and give it what we like to call a ‘green test.’ These are some of the things to consider:

~Windows and Doors- Air tightness and energy efficiency

~Insulation and Air Leaks

~Heating/Cooling/Hot Water Heater Assessment

~Examine Energy Bills- Throughout the course of a year

~Lighting and Large Appliances-  Radiant heat and electricity

This article by Green gives a little more insight on some of the tests that may be necessary to evaluate your home and rate it on the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) scale. It is important to keep in mind that most conventional homes have a HERS score near 100, while most near zero energy homes are at around a 20 on the scale. Most of the homes by Fasse Construction, normally rate around 53-55 on the HERS scale.

Fasse Construction & Development not only specializes in custom home building, but we also do remodels, upgrades, and energy consulting. The idea is to create a more harmonious and eco-conscious home, which in turn can save you up to 70% on your utility bills. For more information on our services, or to set up an appointment, please call (910) 679 4277, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or stop in our office at 5 Live Oak Dr, Wrightsville Beach. We would love to help you find your perfect shade of green.


We made a few changes to the exterior of the Tonbo Meadow townhomes. Here is a sneak peak of a revised exterior rendering. This particular image is the triplex which is now under construction. This is the 'Meadowhawk' triplex, which will be featured in the 2014 Wilmington Parade of Homes April 26th -27th and May 3rd-4th.

We are hard at work getting these units completed in the next couple of months. Check out the video below to see a little of the progress and stay tuned for more videos and updates!

The Old Wrightsville Beach Fire Station/Ticket Office Just Got Way Cooler!

Fasse Construction & Development, Inc. has a swaggy new office in the heart of Wrightsville Beach. Just a few months ago, this small space was dark, dingy and in need of a serious attitude adjustment. Two coats of mustard paint, and people are already starting to get curious. Fresh white tile and walls on the interior offset the groovy mustard exterior, and the navy accent wall gives the office a classy, bold element, without being boring. I stand convinced that navy is the new black these days.

A treasure hunt through Wilmington’s vintage art district on Castle Street led me to one of my favorite spots, Projekte, where I fell in love with an awesome crushed velvet, mod, asymmetrical love seat to compliment our cozy little office/home away from home. Not only was this piece eye catching, flattering to the navy wall, and straight out of Austin Powers, but its’ green color is also reflective of Fasse Construction’s evolution to becoming the most unique green builder in the area.

Just one look at Pam Fasse’s homes, and it is clear we believe green living, functionality, and energy conservation can all be easy on the eyes. Stop in our new office, 5 Live Oak Drive Wrightsville Beach, NC and let us help you find your perfect shade of green

Tonbo Meadow Triplex

Just a quick update on the Tonbo Meadow triplex. We are moving right along! The framing is nearing completion and the windows were delivered yesterday. The window installation has begun today and will continue for the next few days. The roof, electric, and plumbing are in progress. Phase 2 of landscaping is in the works where we will focus on additional screening plants, a privacy fence, and an entry sign. Here are a couple preview pics from a few days back...

Tonbo Meadow is Wilmington's first true low-impact cluster of eco-conscious homes. Their collaboration is steeped in a homegrown beach culture that breeds a healthy and free spirit, appealing to those who are energized by the "less is really more" credo. Implementing one of the most innovative green building solutions to date, with operating energy and maintenance costs 70% lower than comparable homes and a Home Energy Rating Score (HERS) more than 45 points below average. A tightly sealed building envelope allows for more pure indoor air quality, adding to the energy efficient HVAC systems and appliances, providing a healthier, more holistic environment for the most ecologically minded spirits.

Basement Remodel By Fasse Construction

Fasse Construction built this energy efficient home just outside Wilmington, NC a few years back and left the basement unfinished at the request of the home owners. Recently, this family of four has decided to convert their basement into a space that their guests and growing children could enjoy for years to come.

They went with a modern, minimalist look. Polished concrete, recessed lighting, & a gray/neutral palette. Here are a few before & after shots. Just a few more finishing touches to go, but what a big improvement!

Closing on Porter's Pointe!

It’s Official

This beautiful home in Porter’s Pointe in Wilmington, NC now has a family to call it home! 

This house is Pam Fasse’s signature ‘Courtenay’ style, which was inspired and named after the eldest of her two daughters. The contemporary home gives off a harmonious vibe, with plenty of natural light, fresh neutral tones, and open space. Of course the home was tweaked to reflect the personal style and personalities of the new homeowners who are moving to the coast from Washington, DC.

As always, Fasse Construction Inc. built this home in an ecologically responsive manner, with efficiency and sustainability in mind. Its hard to believe, not a single tree was removed from the lot to build this home.

Congrats to the excited new homeowners, this one is a real gem!

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.

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.

Tonbo Wetland

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

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.

Tonbo Meadows Gains traction and Recognition...

Both Wilmington's Greater Business Journal and Wilmington's City Technical Review Committee; have found Tonbo Meadows an anomaly to the standard "developer's directive of": maximum land usage for profit vs. Using the Land for what's best for the environment and the people who choose to live at Tonbo.

Tonbo Meadows is an ECO friendly development; in both habitat and plausible living. The property hosts  aesthetic flower and rain gardens, a community food's garden, as well as open space with walking paths and  wetlands area to both filter and sustain watershed on the property.  Housing meets the needs and budgets alike of early retirees to young urban couples. With loft style living and zero lot lines, the home sites combine just over 20,000 square feet of vertical building construction with more than three acres or, 139,000 of total land area with a seven (7-1) to one (land to home) ratio!

Midori in Lumina News

Midori on 29th was recently in the news as a model for sustainable, planet-friendly homes in the Wilmington area. As a part of their spotlight on Earth Day, the Lumina News spoke with architect Scott Ogden of B+O Design Studio about how homes in the Midori community are designed to lower energy costs and leave a small environmental footprint.

Scott explains that Midori homes are "a great example of how green features such as tankless water heaters, passive solar energy, Energy Star appliances and icynene spray foam insulation adds money to your pocket. The Healthy Built Home-rated residences produce electric bills in the $40-a-month range."
