Bacon & Brew Bash with Charleston Home Builders Association


When we’re not busy building beautiful custom homes, there are few things we enjoy more than a competitive cook-off…especially if it involves BACON!  The Charleston Home Builders Association’s annual themed cook-off gave us the opportunity to gather with other professionals in the industry at Holy City Brewing and show off our culinary skills by incorporating bacon in each dish.  The Bacon & Brew Bash allowed teams to use the tasty treat to create a cocktail, an appetizer or a dessert.  We all then served up our creations at a farmyard themed table!



Structures kept things simple and Southern with a ‘Piggy Pimento Cheese’, whipped up by Production Manager, RP Newton.  It was a hit at the event, and while not winning top honors in the competition, guest foodie judges, Chrissy Kohler and Brandon Baylor of Charleston’s News 2 seemed to really enjoy their sampling.  

Our other entry in the competition was a layered ‘Bacon Bark’ concocted by Structures team member, Jennifer Simpson.  It was rich with chocolate, caramel, marshmallow and a sprinkling of candied bacon.  It was, well...messy.  And while this incredibly tasty treat also did not award our team a trophy, we thoroughly enjoyed sharing it with everyone!  


It was a fun night of bacon-wrapped EVERYTHING, great beer from Holy City Brewery, and spending time with other CHBA members!

Houzz Features Two Structures Custom Homes!


If you have searched the internet for great home design ideas recently, you have no doubt come across Houzz, an incredible website that allows users to create idea boards to gather favorite photos and find building, architectural, and design professionals.  Here at Structures, we love Houzz and think it’s a great tool for collecting ideas when planning to build your custom dream home!  Another unique feature of the site is a huge vault of “stories” written by professionals in the industry.  These stories give design advice, offer ideas about a particular area of the home, and include photography from Houzz profiles.  Structures has recently been included in two of these stories!

This Structures custom home’s guest bedroom in Daniel Island Park was featured for its clean-lined and modern crown molding and window casing.  The Houzz feature focuses on how simple architectural details can have a huge impact on a home’s design.  (Designed by Cobb Architects)

And this beautiful foyer in Mt. Pleasant’s Old Village welcomes you to a stunning custom home designed by Herlong & Associates and a sweeping view of Charleston Harbor!  The story in Houzz pays special attention to the dramatic entry lantern that defines the space.
