Diamond Reflections

What a fantastic way to spend the fall of 2013! We welcomed several thousand visitors to our 7,500 + square foot, ocean front entry this year.  The weather was perfect!  We actually had to track down a group that had made themselves at home on one of the many upper decks.  They were chatting away and almost got locked in with the security system on.  They reluctantly left and promised to be back the next day.  And they were... along with a myriad of other fine folks...

A LEED Leader

When we first approached about building an energy efficient home, we thought… “No problem!”  After all, we’ve been a 100% EPA Energy STAR Builder Partner for years.  But then the idea of a LEED Certified Home came up.  Let’s just say that is an entirely different beast.  But we were in!

Urban Fusion Sweeps Up

Heading into the 2010 NC Brunswick County Parade of Homes was a bit more comfortable as it was our third time.  Still we were reserved as to our hopes and expectations.  With a single entry this we put all of our energies into make the fine details even more precise.  This was another year for us in the gated community of Ocean Ridge Plantation.

Triple Crown

Heading into the 2010 North Carolina Home Builders Association Annual STARS Awards Contest was humbling.  Last year we came away with four winners.  We felt as if we would be found out now as the small builder from the coast and there would be no way we could repeat.  There are just too many talented craftsmen in North Carolina. This year we entered two previous
