A shingle style home we designed at 14 Ocean Course and recently featured in Traditional Home magazine will be on tour today for the Preservation Society of Charleston. Our generous owners have allowed us this very wonderful organization the use of their home. The home is a “reverse” plan home with the principal living, kitchen and dining areas on the second floor. This affords a better view over the Ocean Course to the Atlantic Ocean. The challenge of this design was to integrate 9,000 sq. foot home and its guest house collection of trees totaling 110″ in caliper.

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.
