Shaggin' on the Cooper is Back!

It's beginning to feel a lot like Summer!  While the season is not officially here, one of our favorite Lowcountry events certainly is!  Put on your shaggin' shoes and head to the Mt. Pleasant Pier for an evening of dancing under the stars (and the Ravenel Bridge) to a variety of local bands.  The fun begins this Saturday, May 16th, and continues through the Summer.  Check out the full schedule HERE.  The cost is only $10, and food & drinks are available for purchase.  Shaggin' on the Cooper is a fun event for all ages - and a great chance to learn the South Carolina State Dance!

ReStructure Update: Custom Addition Begins in I'On Village

The month of May is off to a wonderful start!  Our ReStructure crew is busy on an exciting whole home beach-front renovation on Isle of Palms (an update of that project coming soon!)  But they are also hard at work on a unique custom addition in I'On Village of Mt. Pleasant that is beginning to take shape.  This project will give the home an additional living space, full bathroom, and great extra storage.  The addition will be accessible through the home's existing screen porch (which Structures also built!) and a breezeway that is being constructed.  This unique access from the main home will give the new rooms versatility to be used as a guest space or mother-in-law suite in the future!

Check out photos of the progress:

Structures Baby News!!

This month we would like to announce the newest (and smallest!) addition to the Structures family!!  Project Manager, Dave Hargis, and wife Torie welcomed baby girl Ava on March 24th.  Both sweet Ava and mom are doing great, and daddy Dave is over the moon for this little girl!  Dave has been a part of our team for over 9 years, and the Structures crew is beyond thankful for Ava's safe and healthy arrival.  Welcome to the family, sweet girl - we can't wait to see all that's in store for you!
Check out a few more photos of the baby shower we had here in the Structures Design Center a few weeks ago for Dave and Torie and some great shots taken shortly after Ava's arrival into the world!!

"Charleston: The Belle of the South" Featured in Vanity Fair Magazine

It's really fun to see our amazing city receive national attention for its charm and beauty - so we were thrilled to see Charleston in an 8-page spread in the always glamorous Vanity Fair magazine.  Be sure and pick up the March 2015 issue to see their top restaurant and hotel picks as well as best places to explore the city.  The feature quite nicely describes our town as a "genteel community known for its warm hospitality.  A friendly nod and a sincere 'welcome' await."  We couldn't agree more.

Lowcountry Orphan Relief Clothing Collection

One of our core values at Structures is giving back to our community, and we are often on the lookout for local non-profit organizations with which to partner.  Over the years, we have been privileged to serve alongside East Cooper Habitat for Humanity, send care packages to One80Place, bowl for a cause for the Florence Crittenton Program of SC, and so many other worthy causes both locally and globally.

During the month of March, we will be collecting needed items for Lowcountry Orphan Relief, a Charleston based non-profit whose mission is to provide support services and basic necessities to abused or neglected children in our area.  One of their main means of support is donation of clothing, toiletries, and school supplies. 

Our team will be collecting these items this month, and we'd love for YOU to join us and contribute as well!  Currently LOR is especially in need of the following for boys and girls:

- Pants 5T and up
- Shoes size 6-13
- School Uniforms (navy/white polos, khaki/navy pants) size 5T to 16
- Underwear and Undershirts (men & women size small to 2XL)
- Toiletries (soaps, toothpaste, lotions, deodorant)

Please give us a call if you need more details, and we invite you to stop by our office with your donations!  You can also visit the Lowcountry Orphan Relief website for more info.
