If you are considering designing and building a home in the Lowcountry region of South Carolina start with these free resources created by Swallowtail Architecture. We’ve compiled this information for our clients, prospective clients, and anyone who feels the draw of living on the coast of South Carolina. We cover topics such as how to approach your design: what size and type of home will suite your needs now and in the future and meet your budget. We discuss how to find and hire an architect to lead your home design project and how to maximize your collaboration with your architect. We also detail the requirements of building in a coastal environment, including the added costs of weather-related reinforcements and special materials that can stand up to the environment. We also understand the many quirks and challenges of designing homes that fit into the local community, which is why we detail best practices for working with the design review boards in the communities outside of Charleston.
The development of a custom home or a whole-house remodel is multi-faceted, but with the guidance of the Swallowtail team, you’ll be toasting your home in no time.
