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.

Mountain House starting foundations

Share Button

We are designing a new home for a couple from Charlotte, literally on the top of a mountain in Lansing, North Carolina.  You can see Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina from this vantage point.  We are using ICF foundation.  That stands for insulated concrete forms.  This is a cost effective way of providing insulation and formwork for the poured concrete.  Our clients were teasing us saying that they hire us and we build their home out of styrofoam.  We will be cladding the exterior with stone.  The beauty of this system is that you can add the steel reinforcing required to support this retaining wall.  Because the of the high winds of the location we have partially depressed the home into the top of the mountain.  We are so fortunate to be given such an amazing site to design a home.
