5 Tips for Successful ARB Submittal on Kiawah Island

Kiawah has a prescribed and comprehensive design review process that starts before you even begin to design your home and ends with a final review post-construction that ensures that the built home fully complies with all of the approved design parameters. While the design guidelines are easy to read, many homeowners worry that finding the design solution that meets Kiawah’s goals to preserve as much of the natural beauty and conditions on the site means they will have to compromise on what they really want. Learn about what the Architectural Review Board on Kiawah Island is, what it does, and how to best prepare your submission to the board.
