Heron Pointe

Mt. Pleasant Residence Out of the Ground

Footings had been placed during a brief site visit on Tuesday at a new residence in Mt. Pleasant's Heron Pointe neighborhood. I made a couple of visits this week to the site of a new residence under construction in Mt. Pleasant's Heron Pointe neighborhood.  This beautiful property, one of the last unbuilt lots in the development, occupies a small peninsula with a long views across the marsh and a dock on Hobcaw Creek.  Suiter Construction is serving as contractor for the future residence designed a family with life-long roots in the community.

The block foundation of the residence is well underway, with about half of the block for the full-height foundation having been laid.

It is always exciting to see as design that we have labored over beginning to take shape in the form of new foundations.  This residence is being constructed with a ground level that is above minimum base flood elevation, allowing this level to be finish partially now and more completely as the owners determine that they need the additional space.  Thoughtful planning by the previous owner of the property a couple of decades ago, along with the addition of a couple of feet of structural fill to the lot before construction initiated, allowed this scenario.

It is good to have this one underway.
