"Cooking With Character" Houzz Feature


One of our absolute FAVORITE kitchens was featured again recently on the popular design idea website, Houzz!.  If you've been following Structures Building Company for a while, you've no doubt heard about or seen images of our beautiful, award winning Coastal Living Idea Home completed in 2009.  (If not, check out these blog posts!)  The home was featured in Coastal Living Magazine and this amazing kitchen has been featured (and tweeted, and pinned, and liked...) since its debut!  We love it, and greatly appreciate the attention it continues to receive.  Check out the recent Houzz feature, Cooking with Character, HERE!

New Meets Old on Isle of Hope

One of Structures' latest custom home projects is a great example of how vintage materials can be used in new construction. The owners of this lovely marshfront property in Mount Pleasant's I'On neighborhood are bringing a touch of old New England to their new home in the Lowcountry with reclaimed wood timber, vintage naily pine floors, and solid exposed oak beams. The home, designed by Herlong and Associates, has a rustic, natural feel that perfectly complements the peaceful marshfront setting. What's great about being a custom builder is taking the things our clients love most and incorporating them into the personality of their homes. We can't wait to see how it all turns out!
The front exterior is prepped and ready for painting.

Reclaimed wood timber is used on the ceilings as well as the floors.
 All of the window trim and door casings are cypress.
Beautiful detailing on the hip-vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom.

ReStructured Outdoor Living

One of the most exciting parts of seeing a major ReStructure project come to completion is going back to the "before" photos to see the incredible transformation these homes experience.  Whether its a complete home remodel or in this case a great outdoor living addition - our talented ReStructure team brings new life to wonderful existing homes!



This home, located in Mt. Pleasant's I'On Village, needed a little bit of an exterior facelift and an outdoor space to better suit the clients needs.  Our team removed overgrown landscape and trees that were literally overshadowing the quaint property, and added perfectly manicured pathways, fresh plantings, a patio, and a privacy fence.  We also re-painted the exterior siding and shutters of the home, added a spacious screened-in porch, and built a custom carport for the client.  Our client is thrilled with this great new space to relax, dine, and entertain guests on beautiful Lowcountry days!

Check out the BEFORE and AFTER photos:

Framing Complete on Wando View Custom Home!

The walls are up on what will soon be another stunning Structures home on Daniel Island! At a recent walk-through with Structures Project Manager Dave Hargis, it was easy to see the makings of a spacious, well-crafted custom home. True to it’s address, this Beau Clowney Design home on Wando View Street features breathtaking views of the Wando River at every turn and sits on a deep water lot, complete with a private dock. Gazing out from the back porch, it doesn't take much imagination to picture the roof-covered area planned for barbeques and entertaining friends at the end of the dock. And can’t you just see a small boat tethered there, ready and waiting to explore the lowcountry waterways?
An inviting private dock leads to deep water on the Wando River.

Charleston Named Best City in USA & Canada!




Its no secret that we here at Structures believe we live in the best place on the planet - but Travel + Leisure magazine and its readers seem to agree!  Travel + Leisure named Charleston the #1 city in North America for 2014, easily topping popular big cities such as New York, Boston, and San Francisco. 

And maybe even more impressive than that...Travel + Leisure ranked Charleston the 2nd best city in the WORLD!  (Kyoto, Japan just squeaked by to grab the #1 spot.)  We are so blessed to live in this incredible corner of the world - and we are excited to see Charleston in the international spotlight.  For those of you who may not call Charleston home (just yet)...check out what future Late Show host and Lowcountry native, Stephen Colbert, told Travel + Leisure about his favorite Charleston spots HERE
