Looking back from the front foyer.

Once the Idea Home is complete, this will be the view from the front solid loggia doors that face the Jefferson Canal, in I'On.

Both Structures Building Company and Historical Concepts walked this incredible plan inside and out to come up with a comfortable and simplified custom home with beautiful details throughout that give your eyes something unique and incredible at each corner.

HomeSlicker being applied to the house!
The yellow mesh you see on the wrap of the house is installed to create a "drainage plane" for water to escape from behind the siding. This is another "green" building technique that is hidden from the eye but is in place with our homeowners health and investment in mind!

Building and Renovating Beautiful Homes

A breath taking view from a current renovation job on Kiawah Island
You've known that we build beautiful custom homes for 10 years, but we also love breathing new life into our clients homes by helping them with their delicate custom renovations. Have you found that you want to stay put for awhile but would love to make some changes? Do you need more room? Open up your existing floor plan? Do you have a view you can't part with but need major or minor renovations? Do you want to make your home more energy efficient and healthier for you and your family? We can help! Contact us to see how we can Build on Your Priorities and make it a reality for you!

Don't take our word for it, here's a quote from a past renovation client:

"When we first contacted Structures about our home renovations, while still living in Connecticut, we did so based on the excellent recommendations we had received from people living in the I'On neighborhood. What we didn't realize at the onset of this comprehensive project was the degree of care and concern Structures would bring to our project. Structures exceeded our expectations. Initially we felt we were entering into a purely business relationship, but it didn't take long for us to realize it was more personal. We have highly recommended the Structures team to others and we continue to enjoy living in a home that they truly brought back to life."

We Passed Our Framing Inspection!!
As soon as we passed, Southern Foam and Coating slide right in to install our spray foam insulation! An incredible green product sprayed in the "building envelope" that not only helps insulate against the hot and humid climate of Charleston, SC, along with acting as a great sound barrier.
