New Contemporary Rain Porch Home in Florence, SC

Share Button

A contemporary home we designed is coming out of the ground in Florence, SC.  It is for two doctors and we have designed an updated “rain porch” home.  This is a unique architectural style from the Pee Dee Region where the home is being built.  For the porches on these homes the columns go from the ground to the roof and the porch is pulled back from these so the edges of the porch don’t get wet during a storm.  Therefore the name “Rain Porch” home.  The home is being built by Jody Lane and ReMark Studio is the landscape architects on the job.

Hurricane Matthew Update

Carol Jordan just went by the office and it came through the storm unscathed.  Thanks to everyone for your kind texts and emails.  Johns Island doesn’t have electricity but hopefully it will be restored shortly.  Hope everyone will return to a normal routine soon.  I think most of Charleston is without power.  Most important is that all of us came through.  You really get your priorities straight in times like these.  Everything else are just things.

Hurricane rated stormshutters closed and ready for the storm.
