Completed Cottage Renovation

View into former screened porch integrated into beach cottage on Kiawah. Henselstone Windows and Doors. Soffy automated shade systems. We were glad to receive the finished photos of a newly completed project on Kiawah Island earlier this week.  Photographer Jim Somerset came by the studio to discuss his work on this renovated Ocean Woods cottage.  My before photos are less impressive.

Colin Regan and his crew at River Creek Construction did a fabulous job with this renovation.  We are excited to be working with Colin on another cottage renovation about to go under construction.  Working with another residence on the same street, we are redesigning it in a completely different way, with a feel that will be significantly more contemporary.  It will be interesting to use these similar buildings to test the variety of design outcomes possible.
