You can plug your electric car into an EV Charging Station at dozens of locations in the Pittsboro and Chapel Hill area – including your new home.
This active map from PlugShare shows where you can find public stations, designated as high power or ‘ in use’ and where they are located. ChargeHub is another great resource for EV Charge Station information, where users can also edit, add comments, and post pictures.
You can find a place to plug in while you sit outside welcoming places like this: Penguin Place – One of the Top Places to Eat in Pittsboro NC.
Nearly all of the dozens of EV Car Charging stations in the Chapel Hill/Pittsboro area are free. A typical electric car can be fully energized in about 3-6 hours, depending on the vehicle.
Talk to your builder about adding a charging station to your new home. It’s a great way to make reducing greenhouse gas emissions simple and easy, with your home as the center for your ability to have a clean alternative to conventional fossil-fuel powered vehicles.
It’s one more way that high quality custom home builders like Travars Built Homes customize your home to fit your lifestyle – along with the ability for your home to perform efficiently with lower utility bills, with your Eco-Select certificate from Southern Energy Management.

Side Load Garage Benefit #1
A side load garage can give great curbside appeal, with a couple of windows that face front, increasing the perceived size of the home, instead of a big garage door that emphasizes vehicles.
Side Load Garage Benefit #2
A side load garage has a sweeping driveway into the side of the home instead of going straight in, which can give it a look of grandeur, especially when it’s concrete.
Side Load Garage Benefit #3
A side load garage can be used in conjunction with a front facing carriage garage, for separation of vehicles or shop as well as not making it look like the garage is larger than the home.
Travars Built Homes can also add a third garage bay to nearly any floor plan, including carriage garages.
Side Load Garage Benefit #4
A side load garage can be positioned so that there is a courtyard in front of the home, providing more space for play or parking.
Next month, a panel discussion led by Furniture, Lighting & Decor Editor-in-Chief Diane Falvey brings together four experts to talk about leveraging expertise among architects, builders, and designers when building custom homes.
During the panel, “Common Ground: Finding Synergy Among Architects, Builders and Designers,” Phil Travars and Andrew Travars of Travars Built Homes will be talking about the ins and outs of working with a design/build custom home builder in North Carolina.
“Having a clear understanding of the thought process around building a custom home can help everything go smoothly, from design through construction,” said Phil Travars, Owner and Builder at Travars Built Homes. “It’s a great opportunity to talk directly with experts from across the industry.”
About 75,000 people from across the country and internationally are expected to attend the bi-annual Furniture Mart event represented by more than 100 countries, for architects, designers, furnishings buyers and others looking for the latest information and products for homes.
The Travars brothers were asked to participate in the event to share their thought leadership about home building and designing together with CIRCLE Design Studio, LLC Principal Architect John Dorlini and Principal/Owner Theresa A.C. Dorlini.
Topics about the custom home build process are expected to include:
- How designers and builders work together compose a custom home.
- How creativity can create excitement through different points of view.
- What to look out for when choosing a custom home on a budget.
- What to think about as you integrate designs for furniture, lighting, fixtures and finishes into your new home.
“This is a great opportunity to bounce around ideas for your new home, if you’re considering a custom build,” said Andrew Travars, Builder and Designer at Travars Built Homes. “We put a lot into making each home unique – this panel will help explain what it takes to create through design/build.”
