Over the years we have been blessed to work with so many wonderful clients. It is always fun for us to take someone’s wish or dream list and stash of magazine photos they have been collecting, often for years, and use all of that information to create their dream home. It’s especially rewarding and humbling to receive letters from these clients, long after they have moved into their new house, thanking us for a job well done. We have shared a couple of those letters before (here and here), and now, we have the opportunity to share another.
In 2009 we were hired to design a shingle style, marsh front home in Mt. Pleasant. We used this house as the subject matter for a blog post titled “Journey Through Construction” where we took you through each phase of the construction process.
After being in their new home for some time, the homeowners sent us the following letter:
Way back in November we blogged about the construction progress of the house we designed at 1724 Sailmaker Street on Daniel Island. Since then the construction has continued on at a steady pace and now the homeowners are just days away from moving in. The team at Structures Building Company has done a beautiful job and it has been a lot of fun working with them to see this house go from the drawing table to an artfully crafted home. Before we show off the finished product, let’s take a look back at where we started.
In this photo from September you can see the house is really starting to take shape. The main mass of the house has been framed and the garage and porches are in progress.
By November the house was completely framed, and you could finally get a real since of what it was going to look like. However there was still much work to be done!
May 2012 – Complete!
Finally, after 9 months construction is complete! As you can see, many details were added to the exterior to give it that low country flavor. We designed a custom truss sculptural detail for the front gable, as well as brackets for the columns and dormer roofs.
This 4,200 square foot home is situated on a double corner lot on the marshes of the Wando River with wonderful views! There are 5 bedroom and 4.5 baths in this home including the guest suite above the attached garage. Additionally, there is a den for the kids on the second floor. This house was designed with the views and outdoor living in mind. Deep front porches wrap the corner of the house while the back boasts a covered porch and a separate screen porch with a fireplace.
Check back with us in a couple of weeks for a photo tour of this home including the wonderful outdoor living spaces!
