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!
