Brays Island

Here’s a house on Brays Island that we designed years ago. The new owners are adding on to the main house and also building a new guest house.

Brays Island Addition

Palmetto Bluff House

This house is on a beautiful, wooded lot in Palmetto Bluff. The guest house is already built, we designed the main house and garage to complement the existing building and to take advantage of the marsh views over the May River.

Fripp Island
