Porches, Paint, and Sheetrock!

The Habitat Builder's Blitz is moving right along this week, and the house is starting to take shape (and have some color!)  The early part of the week had windows and doors being installed and electrical and plumbing rough ins complete.  And now we are on to exterior trim, building the porches, painting siding, and getting ready to hang sheetrock.  It's exciting to see it all come together so quickly, and we are so thankful for the incredible dedication and hard work of our trades out at the job site!  Structures and JacksonBuilt Homes have gathered a great team of generous trades who have been working long hours to get Judy and her son into their new home!

Here is a look at what has been happening in the last couple of days:

2016 Habitat Builder's Blitz Kicks Off!

We are thrilled to announce that the 2016 Habitat for Humanity Builders Blitz is officially underway!  This is the third time Structures has partnered with East Cooper Habitat for Humanity in building a safe, affordable home for a local family in just one week!  This year, we are working along side JacksonBuilt Custom Homes and ECHH to give a single mom and her son a great home here in the Lowcountry.  Judy, our new homeowner, has been a joy to work with and has certainly been on the job site each day sweating it out with our amazing trades!

And speaking of our trades - this project would not be possible without the generous support of our trades and suppliers who are donating their time and resources to making this Habitat Blitz possible.  We cannot thank them enough!

It has been hot, and we've battled a few rain showers, but so far the Builder's Blitz is going great!  Check out a some photos of the first few days of the project:

Structures Earns 2016 GuildMaster Award

Structures Building Company has once again been given the honor of GuildMaster with Highest Distinction by our third-party surveying company, GuildQuality!  At the close of each project, using a GuildQuality survey, our homeowners give us feedback on a variety of items including quality of work, schedule, budget, overall satisfaction with Structures and many more.  This is a great resource for our company, and helps us find ways to maintain excellence in customer satisfaction and continue to build the highest quality homes in the Lowcountry.  The GuildMaster distinction is given to custom builders who receive excellent scores on their surveys, and we are thankful that our clients continue to have a remarkable building experience with Structures!

As one happy client recently responded at the completion of their home:

“Structures Building Company exceeded our expectations in every way during the building of our new home. Their staff is knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to work with. Throughout the process they communicated consistently, keeping us up to date on the work being done and the construction schedule, as well as promptly answering any questions we had. We have been in our new home about a month, and the quality of construction and attention to detail is evident everywhere. We would absolutely recommend Structures to anyone considering doing a new build or renovation project!”

New Neighbors in I'On Village!

I'On Village has a beautiful new addition to the community and a couple of great new neighbors.  We recently completed this DesignBuild project for wonderful out of town clients looking to build their dream home and settle into Lowcountry life.  The unique home, designed by Neal Van Dalen, features incredible custom details throughout and a beautiful outdoor pool space for relaxing and entertaining.  Large porches overlook the charming courtyard and custom pool and cabana-style pool house.  The home has 4 bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms and a suite over the garage complete with a kitchen, bedroom, and balcony sitting area.  One of the bedrooms is especially unique as it is designed as a modern Japanese Tatami room with textured walls and tatami mat flooring.  The tatami room also features a Murphy bed and an en suite bathroom with a teak tub designed to overflow.

We truly couldn't be more excited to welcome this couple to our Structures Family of homeowners, and this was a fun project from start to finish!  We invite you to take a peek inside this beautiful home:

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!
