Six years ago we designed the 2013 HGTV Dream Home. A winner was chosen and then the developer could put the house on tour for a month and the monies earned would be given to a local charity. Our developer, Candace Dyal of Dyal Compass, LLC chose Community in Schools. This organization helps fund school supplies for local teachers. These tours were very successful and raised over $180,000.ºº. This is more than any other HGTV Dream Home up to that time. We were so happy that so much money was raised for such a good cause. This home was designed using sustainable and green materials and was awarded the highest green rating Platinum LEED.
Since we are eyeing Hurricane Florence reminds us of the Hallways and Elevator Lobbies at Dockside Condominiums which were last updated after the damage of Hurricane Hugo. Renovations have begun on the lobbies by updating all of the materials. Raising the ceilings in the elevator lobbies with indirect uplighting and new platinum leafed light fixtures. New porcelain ceramic floors, wainscoting and moldings will complete the design. Construction has begun by Chastain Builders and will take around six months to complete. #docksidecharleston #charlestonsc #Chastianconstruction #charlestoncondos #charlestonrenvoations.

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.

Charles and his wife and collaborator Ray Eames are considered one of the most important American designers of the 20th Century. The Eames chair (pictured here) is a classic design that is still popular and in production. He made modernism acceptable to non-elite Americans. His driving principal was a life made better through design and technology.
