Hats Off

Rendering for Coastal Living was done by Muir Stewart

Hats off to the incredible team that made the 2009 Coastal Living Idea Cottage possible. This custom home is located along the Jefferson Canal, right in the heart of I'On Village, Mount Pleasant, SC. Building a high-end custom home in 4 1/2 months is a huge feat! I know my Structures team - they're always up for a challenge. I'd be remiss if I didn't say that we couldn't have done it without our loyal team of suppliers and trades that really stepped up to the plate to bring it altogether on such a short build schedule. Thanks to everyone for such a successful project!

The Charleston Trident Association of Realtors reports that 732 transactions closed in June, up from 678 in May. The median sale price was $192,626, up from $187,000 in May. The modest increases in median price are an excellent indicator of a recovering market

Another Great Place to Experience in Our Lowcountry!

If you haven't had a chance to swing by the Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park, it's a must see! It's another perfect place for a simple stroll, family friendly places to explore, including a fenced in play area, fishing off the long pier and not to mention the opportunity to put the state dance into practice for shaggin on the pier. I think the pier is a great combination of the long Folly Pier and Water Front park in historic downtown Charleston - even down to the two sided bench swings! Schedule a time to explore this great addition to our Lowcountry!

Kind Words From Coastal Living

“It has been nothing short of a wonderful experience to work with Structures on our 2009 Idea Cottage. This program is run on an extremely accelerated schedule and the Structures team far exceeded our expectations without compromising any aspect of the quality or design of the cottage. They were always timely, proficient in their work and so great to communicate with, all which made the building process stress-free, something that definitely keeps a smile on my face.”
