Before & After: Office Renovations


To celebrate our 25th year in business, we did some major renovations around our office.  We like to use local products and businesses whenever possible and couldn't have made the office look so great without all these folks: BPG Landscape Architects, T&T Construction, Michael Sanders Woodworks, Grayco, Preservation Tree Care, Cummings Custom Builders, Specialty Tile, Carolina Lumber Sourcing,  VeluxMilliken Carpet.

The first renovation was when we first moved our office to Lady's Island from Downtown Beaufort in 1992. We raised the roof of the garage to create our studio and used the front for the conference room, reception area, storage room and bathroom. We hadn't done much decorating since 1992, so it seemed like the perfect time to get it back in order.

We tore out the back wall and installed giant sliding doors made by Anderson. The table and console were built by Michael Sanders Woodworks. The lumber for the furniture came from Lewis Cummings of Cummings Custom Builders in Walterboro. The cypress for the table was reclaimed from the Erhardt Train Station, and the wood on the walls is antique heart pine. The chairs were designed by Matthew Hilton and are available here.

Our new sign was designed by our own Tom Rhodes, AIA. The sign came from Signs Now of Beaufort. The sign post was built by Michael Sanders Woodworks with thermo-treated oak (a sustainable alternative to pressure-treated lumber) provided by Carolina Lumber Sourcing

We repainted, got new mats for the frames, and put down new carpet. Jane & Michael spent a weekend ripping up the old carpet and installing the new carpet squares from Milliken. We also added 4 Velux light tubes to increase the natural lighting. The mats came from Charles Street Gallery.
