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.
