Structures Named Best Custom Home Builder in The Moultrie News

The people of the Lowcountry have honored us once again by voting for Structures as the Best Custom Home Builder!  Each year readers of The Moultrie News cast their votes for their favorite local businesses - everything from restaurants and entertainment venues to medical offices and auto repair shops.  The distinction of Best of the Best is given to business in several categories, and we are incredibly thankful to receive top honors in the custom home building category.  We truly love the community in which we live and build, and our aim is to provide the most enjoyable home building experience from start to finish!  Thank you to the readers of The Moultrie News for a great reminder of what a wonderful community we have - along with the help of fantastic subcontractors, suppliers, and architects - you help make us the BEST!

Habitat Builders Blitz - Celebration and Thanks

After just one short week, a lot of sweat, (and some tears too) - we can now celebrate a safe, affordable, new home for a deserving family and the completion of the 2016 Builders Blitz! This past Saturday Structures had the privilege of gathering with our homeowner Judy's friends and family, many of the volunteers and trades who participated in the build, and the staff of both JacksonBuilt Homes and East Cooper Habitat for Humanity to dedicate the home and celebrate a new chapter in Judy's life.  Several ECHH staff spoke as well as Structures owner, Steve Kendrick, and Richard Jackson, owner of JacksonBuilt Homes giving thanks for an incredible week of hard work and wishing Judy all the best in her new home!


And we simply cannot say thank you enough to the MANY trades, suppliers, donors, and volunteers who made this Builders Blitz possible!  Both Structures and JacksonBuilt Homes gathered some of their best trades and suppliers to donate time and material - and in a very busy building season, this was a generous gift!  We also had several local restaurants who donated lunches and snacks each day of the build.  It was a great reminder that not only do we love what we do - but we love the people we get to spend our days with building up the Lowcountry.

Habitat Builders Blitz - That's a Wrap!

As the final days of the 2016 Habitat Builders Blitz came into view, our incredible crew of trades and suppliers worked almost around the clock to wrap up the project!  The kitchen cabinets were installed, interior walls painted, flooring installed, door and cabinet hardware placed, all plumbing fixtures were put in, and appliances delivered.  All hands were on deck from East Cooper Habitat for Humanity and both the Structures team and JacksonBuilt Homes to bring the build to a close.  And Judy, our homeowner, continued to work alongside us every step of the way.  It has been a joy to get to know her through this process, and we couldn't be happier to give the keys of this home to her.

Here are a few photos of the last couple of days of the Builders Blitz - stay tuned for more to come when East Cooper Habitat for Humanity dedicates the home with a celebration on Saturday!

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!”
