Let’s face it, being green means lower energy bills, too.*

For many homebuyers today, having a “green” home isn’t just about being environmentally responsible. They want a home that’s as energy efficient as possible to save money. The easiest and least costly way to having a green home is by using natural gas for water heating, heating and cooking.

SAVE MONEY WITH NATURAL GAS.

That’s because natural gas appliances are energy efficient, cost-effective to operate, last longer and require less maintenance. And, natural gas is one of the most environmentally friendly energy sources available. Plus, no other energy source delivers the comfort, convenience and reliability of natural gas. Call 1-866-523-8242 or visit sceg.com/value to see just how easy being “green” can be.

LOOK FOR HOMES BUILT BY BUILDERS WHO KNOW THE ADVANTAGES OF NATURAL GAS. * When asked to list their top 12 influences in buying a home, consumers responding to a National Association of Home Builders survey last year put energy efficiency at No. 2 , behind quality of living space. Five years ago, energy efficiency did not make the same survey. ŗ

PUBLISHER'S LETTER

Spring Into Action

I

t seems as if things happen so quickly these days that, if you're not moving forward, you're falling behind. Sitting still means watching others pass you by. No one has ever accused Charleston Home + Design magazine of letting grass grow under our feet. And so, 2012 is proving to be another year of firsts for our small company.

What's more, the architects (and builders) will be on site at each home to answer questions and point out the unique architectural details. (See page 133 for details.) In a feature we call "A Boeing Love Story," you'll read about a local girl from Sullivan's Island who met and married one of the first employees hired by Boeing here in South Carolina. Her father, a builder with EPIC Development, built the couple a new home in The Preserve at Fenwick Plantation, and we show you their new place and share their love story with you.

The Charleston Home + Design Show first launched in January of 2004 at Gaillard Auditorium. That first show was so successful that our small staff was smothered with praise from our vendors. However, with Gaillard Auditorium closing temporarily for renovations, we're "taking our show on the road"; our first stop is Family Circle Cup on Daniel Island April 21-22. This will be Charleston's FIRST "open air" home show with over 75 local vendors lining the Family Circle Cup Stadium’s concourse. The weather this time of year is so beautiful that guests to the show will be able to enjoy the fresh air coming off the Wando River while speaking with home and design experts about their project. Everything is covered at the stadium, so it's a rain or shine event.

This issue is packed with other great stories like our Jonathan Green cover feature, which takes you inside the painter’s combination home and art studio on Daniel Island, where he creates his much sought-after masterpieces.

About 15 years ago, the first homes were built on Daniel Island and today, this upscale enclave boasts a population of over 8,500 full-time residents living in 1,525 single family homes, 230 townhomes, and 960 condos. Now, many of the residents are ready to update their abodes, while others planning to build will be eager to meet some of the most reputable contractors at the Charleston Home + Design Show.

Finally, in our annual bathroom feature, we showcase 16 dream bathrooms and tell you who built them and where you can go to recreate the same look in your own home. We also show you the most popular bathroom products homeowners are choosing today.

Yet another FIRST will be the inaugural "Homes by Architects Tour" on Daniel Island, taking place Saturday, April 21 (coinciding with the Charleston Home + Design Show at Family Circle Cup Stadium). There are numerous home tours in Charleston, but this is the first home tour to put the spotlight directly on architects and the great work they do. Guests will tour six private residences, all designed by local architects.

We hope you'll be part of some of our first-ever events. Enjoy your spring!

Aqua Blue Pools Introduces the IntelliChem Pool Chemical Management System CHARLESTON— Pool owners must either become amateur chemistry experts to keep their pool water clean or hire a pool maintenance technician to determine the correct amount of chemicals to add on a weekly basis. The new IntelliChem pool chemical management system takes the guesswork out of pool upkeep. Using the same technology demanded by commercial pool operators, the IntelliChem system brings ease to your home-pool maintenance. It eliminates the time and guesswork that comes with chemically treating your pool by perfectly balancing the chemical ratio in the water. The system adds chemicals in precise amounts, exactly when needed. Aqua Blue Pools now carries and installs the system all around the Lowcountry, making pool owners worry-free when it comes to the chemical maintenance of their outdoor oasis. For more information, call Aqua Blue Pools at (843) 767-7665 or visit aquabluepools.net. &OLQW)RUHRI$TXD%OXH3RROV

Energy One America Makes an Appearance on the Most Prestigious Industry Website and Moves Showroom to New Location CHARLESTON—Shortly after taking control of Energy One America, John Guffey found himself making a huge impact in the spray foam industry. Spray foam is one of the top products in home insulation, offering substantial energy cuts for homeowners, as well as noise reduction capabilities. Recently, Guffey’s story, that showcases his journey to owning Energy One America, appeared on SprayFoam.com, the spray foam industry’s go-to site about the product. As one of the largest spray foam companies in the area, Energy One America plans to expand. Guffey notes in the SprayFoam.com article his intent to branch out into Virginia and states beyond in the years to come. On a local note, Energy One America has moved their Charleston office and showroom to Jessen Lane just off of Clements Ferry Road.

SCE&G Introduces New EnergyWise Discount Program CHARLESTONâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Earth Day is April 22. In preparation, SCE&G has announced a new discount program to encourage residential electric customers to switch to CFLs (compact fluorescent light bulbs). Receive instant discounts from SCE&G on Energy Star qualified CFL bulbs and lighting fixtures during check-out at local retailers, including WalMart, Lowe's, and Home Depot. CFL bulbs are not only more energy efficientâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;each CFL bulb can save 40 dollars in electicity costs over its lifetimeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but they can also make life a little easier. CFLs last about ten times longer than incandescent bulbs, so they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be changed as often. This makes them great for hard to reach places, such as recessed can lights or outdoor flood-lights. For more information, call SCE&G at (866) 523-5242 or visit sceg.com/energywise &RPSDFW)OXRUHVFHQW/LJKW%XOE

old becomes new 8S &\FOH,QWHULRUVWUDQVIRUPVROGLWHPVLQWRFKLFIXUQLWXUHSLHFHV More and more, recycled materials are circulating through our lives in new and surprising ways. Paper, cardboard, aluminum, and plastic are the usual salvaged items, but what could come of an old southern barn? How about driftwood from the Oregon coast? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s things like these that have inspired the furniture of (Up)cycle Interiors. Owner Amy Hutchins works with master wood crafters all over the U.S. to bring beautiful, eco-friendly furniture into the homes of Charleston and beyond. Reclaimed wood and metals go into making tables, benches, shelves, beds, and more. Limits do not apply to the creativity and ingenuity of (Up)cycleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

artistry. They have salvaged historic materials from New Orleans to create a colorful bookcase with storytelling scars, and transformed driftwood floating off the coast of Oregon into a modern-style platform bed with charm and character. You can turn old materials from your own backyard into stylish and functional furniture. All it takes is a little inspiration and some elbow grease. Recycled furniture minimizes waste and makes quite a statement in your eco-friendly home. For more information, call Amy with (Up)cycle Interiors at (843)442-3717 or visit upcycleinteriors.com.

As the heat rises in Charleston, so do the electric bills. The cost to heat and cool your home is high enough without the added cost of inefficiency. Because living in the Lowcountry unfortunately includes humidity, your air conditioning system works extra hard to keep the moisture out of your home. Inefficient heating and cooling systems mean costly future repairs for a unit that is not functioning to its full potential. Regular

tune-ups save you money in the long run. The maintenance offered by Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heating and Air Conditioning Company keeps Charleston homes comfortable and energy efficient year round. Twice a year, they will perform a 23-point precision tune up and cleaning that protects your system. Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is qualified to service and replace all brands of equipment, as well as install new products for new construction. Choosing the

right system is crucial to saving energy when the summer heat is at its highest. Heating and air conditioning systems will live long and healthy lives with a little T.L.C. Taking care of your system helps your system take care of you. For more information, call Smiths Heating and Air Conditioning Company, Inc. at (843) 552-3772 or visit smithshvac.com.

ASK THE EXPERTS

Excerpts from our radio show TALKING ABOUT A HOME

We asked four companies:

What can homeowners do to prepare their homes for the upcoming warm months?

Kaye Thomas

Chris Reese

Hal Crawley

Hunter Phelps

â&#x20AC;&#x153;So many people in the Lowcountry share their homes with their beloved pets. A regular trip to the groomer can reduce the amount of fur your pet sheds around the house as the weather becomes warmer. Charlestonians didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a very cold winter this year, so fleas and ticks have been running rampant all winter long. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll only get worse as it gets hotter. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to have a pest control company come spray your yard and house. Taking these two actions will keep your pets and home in tip-top shape for the spring and summer months.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;When it comes to landscaping, now is the time to do preemergent work [weed control before growth]. Because we never really had a true, cold winter, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fighting not only winter weeds, but also spring and summer weeds that are already starting to crop up. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important is getting the proper pre-emergents done; get a soil test and make a plan. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a plan, find someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like Charleston Landscapeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to help you make one.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;As it gets warmer, a lot of homeowners are looking for ways to save money on their energy costs. Radiant heat from the sun enters the home through the windows, raising the temperature of the house and creating a greater need for air conditioning. Window film curtails homeownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; energy bills by reducing heat gain from radiant heat (by either reflecting the heat or absorbing it). Furthermore, a window film blocking the sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rays will also protect furniture from fading.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Freshen things up. If you want to change your wall colors, now's the time for vibrant, brighter colors. Mint green is really going to be in this season. Also, it's a good time to work on the welcoming feel of your home. Go for curb appeal; some easy things you can do for your home include updating your foyer, replacing old door hardware, or planting flowers in some window boxes just outside the door. The important thing to remember is to keep it simple."

FOR ALL IT'S WORTH

taking a look at the cost of home technology

E

veryone wants the newest, latest, and greatest technology for their home, but adding a 3-D television, movie projectors, vacuum tube amplifiers, and Totem Acoustic speakers can certainly be costly. What makes these technologies worth the price, and how will investing in them lead to a more productive and enjoyable household?

Family Time: One of the most &KULV+ROVRPEDFN2ZQHURI$FFXFRP

State-of-the-Art Technology:

Some of the hottest products on the market are in television technology. Manufacturers are now making high-tech Plasma and LED televisions that are 3D ready, offering crystal clear pictures and brilliant sound. If music is your passion, whole-home audio systems are also becoming increasingly popular and can dramatically increase the resale value of your home. Newer technology allows for wireless control via smart phones, iPads, laptops, as well as dedicated controllers without the need for keypads or volume controls cluttering the wall.

expensive items to install in your home is a complete media roomâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an entire room dedicated to music listening, movie watching, and internet surfing. A room like this becomes the perfect place for a family movie night or a Superbowl party with your favorite friends. The extra investment spent on a media-centered room will create a space for lasting memories with friends and family.

Starting Small: Even if a home

theater or a whole-house audio system didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the cut on your house plans, there are ways that you can prepare for future technology. For instance, Bill Whitley of local audio visual company, Accucom Integrations Group, Inc., recommends installing category six wires when building a new home or when

remodeling, even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan to use them right away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cat 6 wires will become very helpful should you decide to install home technology in the future. Putting a few hundred dollars of wire into your new home can save thousands in the long run,â&#x20AC;? Bill explains. You could also start with some lower-cost home technology, like speakers in the kitchen or living room (or wherever you listen to music the most). Lower cost options certainly wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come with the state-of-theart quality lauded by high end products, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be on your way to becoming a techsavvy homeowner! Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where to start with in-home technology? Give Bill Whitley or Chris Holsomback with Accucom Integrations Group, Inc a call at (843) 769-4822 or check them out on the web at accucomig.com.

19 th Century Dutch Marquetry Vitrine? from

T

Leon Vanderbilt Antiques

his vitrine (or glass display case) boasts some of the most intricate design techniques in the antique world. The walnut cabinet consists of a mirroredback and single, upper door supported by a lower, doubledoor cabinet resting on bracket feet. In keeping with the Dutch tradition from the 17th century, craftsmen highly skilled in marquetry (a method of inlaying

small pieces of wood) flourished through the 1800s due to the abundance of imported exotic woods. Pieces from this time feature satinwood, olive wood, and other unique woods to create fanciful, intricate designs.

stunning wedding gift, this piece of Carolina history was presented to a 19th century bride and groom as they tied the knot in Buncombe County, NC. The presentation pitcher was hand-made with sterling sliver and features a unique engraving listing some of

the most noteworthy namesakes in the Carolinas. The engraving reads, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Presented to Mr. and Mrs. John H. Murphy by the Bridal Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;B.S. Guion, Jas. A. Patton, W.M.

From Gary, we found out that this piece is most likely a 1940s piece possibly inspired by the Prohibition era. Unfortunately, this piece is not quite an antique. Why? Furniture becomes an antique when it reaches 100 years old. So, this desk still has a few more years to go.

Send us a photo of your antique, along with any information you have about the piece, to mbruner@newhomecharleston.com.

Rodney let us tag along with him for a morning of house-calls and business to see what we could learn from this pro on the go. 5RGQH\-DPHVRI* 56HUYLFHV//&

shoes and doing a quick walk-through of the house to understand the layout and window locations. Then, he removes each screen from the home to begin the washing process. The screens are carefully stacked and organized out of the way so that the guys at G&R know exactly where they are to replace them after the job is finished.

9:30AM: Rodney arrives at a home in Mt.

Pleasant that suffered severe water damage. Working with Nautilus Company (the acting general contractor on the renovation), Rodney and his team diligently reinstall the baseboards and moulding, repaint the walls, and touch up the exterior paint on the home.

10:30AM: Once he knows that everything

is flowing smoothly, Rodney moves on to another projectâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this one is located on Daniel Island. Rodney arrives before the rest of his employees to speak with the homeowners about their expectations for the day. At this home, they will simply be pressure washing, window washing, and (per the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request) cleaning some leaves off the roof.

of Nautilus Company, Rodney checks on his employees around the house.

10:00AM: Rodney then checks on his

CHARLES ON THE CRAFTSMEN: Southern Lumber and Millwork Corporation

THE CRAFT: Anything out of wood! The company is particularly known for custom millwork and special mouldings. Most of the lumber the company uses comes from within a 500mile radius, minimizing environmental impact (popular local species include poplar and Southern yellow pine). THE BACKSTORY: In 1940, Herman Albrecht, Jr. started a small millwork business based out of his own backyard in downtown Charleston. Following steady growth (and a few growing pains), the company relocated in 1945 to a spacious plant and seven acre lot on King Street. Incorporated in 1964, Southern Lumber has since become a Lowcountry shopping staple for millwork, moulding, and other building materials. A true family affair, it is run today by Herman's daughter Joye and his grandsons Thad Shuler, Ben Albrecht, Jr., and Will Albrecht.

Custom Wainscoting

THE PROCESS: When a homeowner requests a special moulding, Southern Lumber gets measurements, which are drawn into AutoCAD. A computerized machine uses the AutoCAD drawing to cut a template. This template is usedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;by the craftsmen at the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; as a guide for grinding their own steel knives, a skill that is still done completely by hand. From there, the knives are set into digital equipment that matches the moulding to the template closer than what the visible eye can see. For millwork, drawings are typically either submitted by an architect associated with a project or are drawn by Ben in AutoCAD. A computerized AutoCAD machine runs all of the parts and pieces individually, so they can then be pieced together per the original drawings by Southern Lumber's carpenters or "millwrights." A hands-on process, creating the millwork is considered such an art form that some carvers even engrave their names on the back of each piece they complete.

Typically, a brightly colored insect, bird, or other ceramic garden creature serves as landscape dĂŠcor, but this gray trunk of driftwood contrasts perfectly with the bright, lively plants surrounding it.

Acting as a decorative piece in the courtyard, outdoor lighting is as popular as ever. Not only do these lights illuminate the beautiful outdoor living space, but they provide light to safely walk the path at night.

For the beach-lover at heart, the sand used in these plant beds (along with the palmetto trees) creates a nice oceanlike setting. Wood chips, rocks, or typical pine straw just wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer the same maritime effect!

Fire pits are gaining popularity this spring. Brick fire pits, like this one, offer the perfect venue to relax on a cozy, cool spring evening.

With a beautiful, warm glow, these hanging lights turn the trees into outdoor chandeliers, transforming a typical backyard into a picturesque setting for outdoor events.

When it comes to landscaping trends, native plants are on the riseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially in unique environments such as the Lowcountry. They provide a sense of place, low maintenance, and great wildlife habitats for the garden.

Bringing the comforts of the indoors to the outdoors has become a common trend. This television over the fireplace creates a cozy living room feel in the patio area.

Tall and narrow plants are becoming very popular in small outdoor living areas (especially on the peninsula). Plants like these are great for tight spaces.

INDUSTRY PROFILES

BUILDER PROFILE Upon graduating from the University of Alabama, Chip Naramore embarked on a career in hospital management that ultimately led to his role as CEO of Roper Hospital in Charleston. As much of his experience in hospitals included construction and renovation, Chip "went for it" when the opportunity to acquire RS Custom Homes, a small, respected residential construction company, came along in 2000. "It has been a real treat developing this company with my wife Brenda," explains Chip. "When our son Zac joined the company soon after graduating from the University of South Carolina in 2003, it became a real family business."

Most Rewarding Aspect of Being a Builder in Charleston?

Any New or Interesting Developments in Your Company?

We have had the pleasure of working with many wonderful and interesting people in the Charleston area who have enriched our lives and made us better individuals along the way. Without a doubt, the comments and the looks we receive as our clients see their home evolve from a concept, to rough framing, and finally to a finished home are a great reward for all of the effort we invest into our projects.

As a local company in a competitive industry, you always have to keep an eye towards opportunities. A couple of years ago, we began to move into some light commercial projects. This seems to be presenting some interesting opportunities for us. It is amazing how many commercial products have great applications in residential construction.

Most Distinctive Project You've Worked On Recently? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best part of what we do; every project is unique. One recent project that stands out is a cast-in-place concrete home with eight inch thick walls which were left completely exposed on the exterior. Several walls were also left natural on the interior of the house, creating a very dramatic look. Additionally, the house was built with a living roof which allows a garden to be planted on the rooftop.

Best Advice for Homeowners Hoping to Build? I am constantly amazed at how much money people will entrust to someone with minimal or no references. Get at least six client references and always check banking and business references to be sure the contractor is on sound financial footing. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rely on word of mouth; it can be very unreliable.

ARCHITECTS + ARCHETYPES Upon graduating from Clemson University in 1979 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in design, Steve Herlong embarked on a career in commercial architecture. Thirteen years later, looking for something more, Steve founded Herlong & Associates, an architectural firm that incorporates nature in its residential design.

W

ith this philosophy, Steve has designed award-winning homes throughout the Charleston area. Four of his Daniel Island creations, in fact, are being showcased in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Homes by Architects Tourâ&#x20AC;? on April 21, put on by The Red Cross with collaboration from Charleston Home + Design magazine. When CH+D made the decision to organize the first "Homes by Architects Tour" on Daniel Island, Steve asked, "How many homes can we have on the tour?" We caught up with Steve to talk about Herlong & Associates involvement with the "Homes by Architects Tour."

Do your homes on Daniel Island differ much in design than homes you design in other locations? Most of our clients on Daniel Island want a home with some level of formality, not that all the homes we have designed on

Daniel Island are formal. However, people do want some connection to a classic style of home on Daniel Island. The guidelines of the area speak to that as well, and so these homes do reflect the intent of the neighborhood plan.

What are the differences in a home designed by an architect versus one that is not? Architects must pass strict continuing education requirements each year, so they are more thorough in their understanding of

code and construction issues. Also, architect designed homes are built with a high quality set of drawings and documents. People ultimately end up recognizing the difference between a home that has been carefully and thoughtfully designedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with indoor and outdoor spaces that seamlessly transitionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and one that has not. They understand when they see exterior finishes and windows that capture the imagination.

X Lighting is key. Some pieces look best with direct lighting, while othersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially those with glass framesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;look best without direct lighting, which can create a glare on the image. Improper lighting can cause some paintings (like water colors and sketches) to slowly fade, so be cautious about how your artwork is placed in reference to windows and artificial lighting.

s owner of local designbuild company, Designer Kitchens & Baths, Inc., Rhoda Jones has seen her fair share of dramatic home-transformations. This bathroom project in Summervilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ashborough East Neighborhood was no exception. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve enjoyed playing the Cinderella role in converting this bathroom,â&#x20AC;? quipped Rhoda of her companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We added about four feet to the outside of a master bathroom, expanding it to make room for a big shower and nice garden tub.â&#x20AC;? While 40 square-feet does not seem like that much, Rhoda explained, that kind of additional space in a bathroom can make all the difference; the addition turned tight quarters into a luxurious en suite. Because tearing down exterior walls can seem daunting, most homeowners expand their bathrooms within the original four walls of the home. This, however, limits options. Expanding out into the backyard, for example, can increase both the square footage and the home's exterior visual interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were fortunate to find brick to match the existing exterior. Our addition appears seamless to the casual observer. Unless you knew there was an addition on the house, you would never suspect.â&#x20AC;? Rhoda explained. The Joneses are able to execute these types of expansions because Morelle happens to be both a licensed residential builder and a licensed architect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re responsible for the entire project.

ollowing a fierce hail storm in Mt. Pleasant in early 2011, the owners of a home in Charleston National began having concerns about the condition of their roof after seeing several other roof inspections in the neighborhood. Concerned about calling the insurance adjuster before knowing for certain there was damage, the homeowners researched local roofing companies and soon settled on Pro Roofing & Siding to come perform an inspection.

"It is the fiberglass mat that is impregnated with asphalt," explains Pat, "and the ceramic granules protect the mat from the sun and keep the UV rays off. This gives longevity to the shingle itself, so without it, the shingles cannot last." As this particular house is in a wind zone and more susceptible to storm damage, the homeowner requested the Certainteed Extended 50-year warranty, which includes a ten year warranty for any wind blow-off. "Certainteed will replace it 100-percent," states Pat. "To do that, we have to do some special things to make

"If an insurance agent were to come out prior to us and decide they cannot cover the damage or that there actually isn't any, the insurance company will still show it as a claim against a propertyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;potentially causing the homeowner's premium to go up." In such instances, Pro Roofing inspects the roof and issues a report detailing the damage. Often, Pat and his team will even meet the insurance adjustor on the job to show the adjustor what they've found and see if the adjustor concurs. In the case of this home and the damage detailed in Pro Roofing's report, the insurance company deemed it would be best to have the entire roof replaced.

A licensed general contractor since 1980, Pat is well-equipped to handle roofing jobs of all scope and size. In addition to roofing, he and his company are able to help homeowners with virtually any exterior issue they may have. "On the exterior, we focus on fascia and soffit," says Pat. "If we find rots, we take care of those repairs on the spot; we take the deteriorated plywood board off, replace it, and continue with the job. Also, a lot of homes don't have ventilation in the soffit area or need ventilation added, so we'll open this up and add more vents or recover it with a vinyl material that is perforated all the way around so you can get more airflow into the attic." Pro Roofing can also install and fix gutters and downspout systems, replace doors and windows, and install siding. As many roofs were replaced following Hurricane Hugo over 20 years ago, the lifespan of those roofs may be nearing their end. A telltale sign a roof needs replacement is missing shingles. According to Pat, when roof shingles are past their prime, they dry out and become brittle. When the wind lifts them, they simply break off because they've lost the elasticity it takes to bend. As this leads to cracks and leaks, Pat recommends homeowners have their roof inspected every few years to prevent such problems.

he ever-emerging advances in residential technology can be intimidating to even the most tech-savvy. For the many high-end homeowners in the Charleston area that fall into the 45-and-above age demographic, cutting edge technology can simply be daunting. Such was the case for a retired couple who recently moved into a newly built Seabrook Island home. Unsure of where to even begin, the couple sought out Summerville-based audio/video expert NextGen Technologies to help bring their home up to speed. According to the company, most homeowners need help navigating the complex world of home electronics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When choosing home technology, the majority of people just arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure what they are looking for,â&#x20AC;? explains NextGenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike McIntosh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although some individuals are

Do you watch a lot of movies? Based on the homeownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; answers, NextGen begins to build the equipment list. For the recently retired Seabrook couple, Mike and his NextGen team listened closely to how the homeowners wanted to live before designing a system. They then sat down with the couple to describe each item on the equipment list, its capabilities, and if it was something the homeowners really wanted to include. Ultimately, they decided to outfit the house with an integrated arsenal of distributed audio and video, structured wiring, a security system, surveillance cameras, a computer network, lighting control for art in the

To maximize convenience and minimize clutter, the hub of equipment can be found in one centralized locationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an equipment closet. In this particular home, the equipment closet also serves as a mudroom. Explains Mike, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The homeowners call this their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;second laundry room,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which they use for extra storage. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to impede on that, so we simply carved out a corner. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to have a separate space for your equipment; you can make an area anywhere.â&#x20AC;? All of the audio/video components used in the entire house can be found in this equipment closet. In the Seabrook home, the closet consists of multiple cable boxes, a 400-disc BluRay player, an Apple TV, controllers, a multi-room amplifier, a video distribution system, and a surround sound amplifierâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all of which can be controlled from the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iPad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The interface is very simple,â&#x20AC;? elaborates Mike. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You start with what you want to do.

awareness through the resale of donated furnishings and construction materials. Ultimately, the purchase of items from the store helps those in need fulfill the American Dream of homeownership; the ReStore funds five to seven homes per year. Not only that, their recycling of donated items has helped divert 200 tons of waste from landfills since 2008.

After more than 16 years of redesigning Kiawah and Seabrook Island homes, Claudia says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had an exceptional experience with SIHH for deconstruction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They do a great job of removing everything so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no damage to the walls,â&#x20AC;? she emphasizes.

Very involved in the design and construction process, Gerri and her husband Martin created a home tailored to their specific tastes with the help of their interior designer, Regina Garcia of Regina Garcia Design, LLC; their architect, Christopher Phelps of Christopher Phelps and Associates; and, of course, their builder, Donnie. Because of their involvement in the early stages of the project, the following stages flowed smoothly with very little problems or speed bumps. The home is situated on a beautiful lot, and in many of the rooms, the incorporation of the fantastic views and scenery is the most spectacular aspect of the design. For example, the master bedroom was specifically altered to enhance the view outside. Gerri explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The view in this room

is my favorite aspect; we actually had to shrink the size of the room because we had to avoid killing an oak tree right outside. I would have preferred the room to be a little bigger, but keeping the tree right where it was planted was more important to me.â&#x20AC;? Most of the rooms in the home offer a view of the neighboring marsh and golf course providing a picturesque setting for the Lillysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; abode. In addition to the breathtaking views, the Lilly home has many extra features that give it a custom-designed feel. The study, a cozy reading area for Gerri, is outfitted with solid mahogany paneling, beams, and coffered ceilings. The floor is a special species of wood known as Cumaru, which has one of the highest Janka ratings (making it one of the hardest, most durable flooring

available). Other custom perks include archways in the foyer, a central vacuum, marble countertops in the kitchen, and 12-foot ceilings reminiscent of old downtown homes. As they were designing the home four years ago, Gerri knew that one decorative piece would always follow her from home to homeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;her favorite chandelier.

enowned Lowcountry childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book author Kate Boehm Jerome depicts some of Charlestonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most kid-friendly spots in her bookâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Charleston, SC, Cool Stuff Every Kid Should Know. The colorful, information-packed book contains 16 pages of Charleston facts and 32 pages about South Carolina. As Kate describes, the result is a kid-friendly book about a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very special place on the planet.â&#x20AC;? One could argue, however, that she left out a particularly special place when depicting Charleston: her newly constructed Daniel Island home. Situated on a crisp, green fairway, Kateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house has a simple, classic style. Its rich cherry cabinets, countertops, and vanitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all built by Sullivan Custom Cabinetsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;add both warmth and craftsmanship. As custom cabinet makers, Sullivan Custom Cabinets have their hands in everything from kitchen cabinets to bookcases. You could say the Sullivans are producing Cool Stuff Every Homeowner Should Have. In fact, they

crafted locally by a family that has been in business since 1972. Kenneth attributes the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longevity to their customer service and attention to detail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the homeowner ever needs anything,â&#x20AC;? Kenneth said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always right there to touch up or come adjust a door if the hinge gets loose.â&#x20AC;? A catalogue would not do the same. This is why Sullivan Custom Cabinets does not farm out any of their work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t order anything in,â&#x20AC;? states Kenneth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pre-made. Everything we do, we do from scratch.â&#x20AC;? When they say scratch, they mean it. Each project starts with four foot by eight foot sheets of high-grade medium density fiberboard (MDF). Then, the Sullivans cut their project pieces with a CNC router, which is a machine that runs programs off a computer and cuts the wood accordingly, working much like a

printer. This highly efficient tool removes the potential for human error and shortens manufacturing time by days. Kenneth explains that he can build a cabinet door in 45 minutes because the CNC can cut a door out of one piece of MDF, rather than assembling a door out of five pieces of solid wood, which can take up to a day and a half. This method was particularly effective in Kateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jack-and-Jill guest bathroom, which she envisioned outfitted with shaker-style painted cabinets. Because they are painted, their one-piece construction is hardly discernible and actually preferable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the humidity around here and with the expansion and contraction of wood,â&#x20AC;? Kenneth explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you can get cracks between your panels; with this [method], it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that.â&#x20AC;?

This kind of efficiency, customizability, and trade knowledge can only come from a company that has been executing complicated projects such as Kateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for 40 years. Y For more information about Sullivan Custom Cabinetry, call (843) 554-5880 or visit sullivancustomcabinets.com.

hen most people think of the Amish, they conjure up images of horses, buggies, and wide-brimmed black hats. Clearly, however, there is much more to the Amish community. An industrious group, the Amish historically consisted mainly of farmers until it became apparent there wasn't enough land for so many to farm. It was then, in their search for another trade, that the Amish discovered woodworking. This pastime enabled the community to truly embrace their core principles of hard work and quality craftsmanshipâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;both of which are evident in the products created by the new-to-Charleston company Amish Designers. For 25 years, the Amish tradesmen of Amish Designers have been honing their woodworking skills in the "Amish country" of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Since demand has grown due to word traveling about the beauty and durability of their products, the company recently expanded south, landing their local headquarters in the Holy City. However, even with a local branch, the company still crafts all of their products in Pennsylvania. "The people who work for Amish Designers are virtually all Amish family members who have been around the business since they were four or five years old," explains Jim Adams, the company's local spokesperson. "I'm the only nonAmish person with the company, with the exception of our drivers based out of Coreyville, PA." :LWKVFDOORSHGHGJHVURXQGHGRYHUUDLOLQJVDQGGHFNLQJ DQGDĂ&#x20AC;QLVKWKDWLVVDQGHGIURPWRSWRERWWRPLWLVQR ZRQGHU$PLVK'HVLJQHUV SHUJRODVDUHZRUNVRIDUW

Although the company manufactures pavilions and pergolas as well, gazebos constitute roughly 80-percent of the company's craft. According to Jim, the most popular gazebo size is 12-foot as it is relatively cost effective and can comfortably fit a table and four chairs. However, the company creates many other sizesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including custom. "We sell some eight foot gazebos, as well as a good many of the larger, like the 12 by 18 foot oval," says Jim. "We even sell ones as large as 30-foot, 12-sided gazebos." Amish Designers offers electrical kits with their gazebos for added convenience. For all of the company's productsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;pergolas, pavilions, and gazebos alikeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;much care is taken to ensure they will withstand the unique challenges, such as rusting and corrosion, that come with living on the coast. The gazebos are traditionally made of wood but also available encased in vinyl, which is sturdy and incredibly low-maintenance. As opposed to standard galvanized nailsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; that will almost certainly rustâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Amish Designers primarily use stainless steel screws. When they do use nails (which are hidden from view), they use hot-dipped galvanized nails. Additionally, the highly durable screen systems are ideal for keeping out the mosquitoes and nosee-ums, which are so prevalent along the coast. Buyers have three options for assembly of Amish Designer kits, which come carefully shrink-wrapped. They can elect to put the kits together on their own, hire their own handyman, or have the team at Amish Designers do it for them. But, regardless of the assembly option chosen, the design process at Amish Designers always starts with the vision of the buyerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in whatever form that may come. "We've created designs from architectural sets of drawings, doodles off of cocktail napkins, as well as everything in between," exclaims Jim. "We've done arched pergolas, larger gazebos, and pavilions with hip roofs...pretty much anything a customer can describe, we can do."

fter investing such a large portion of your income in a new home, what could be more important than spending less on utilities? According to the Department of Energy, natural gas costs approximately 68-percent less than the cost of electricity, per BTU (British thermal unit). We at Charleston Home + Design magazine took a moment to visit one of Ryland Homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural gas communities. We found out that saving money is just the beginning. In a recent survey, SCE&G customers were asked what role natural gas would play in the purchase of their next home. Both electric-only and natural gas customers agreed that if all home features were equal, nine out of ten would be more likely to purchase a natural gas home over an all-electric home.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a heightened awareness of energy choices by the public, we are constantly seeing more of a demand for homes with natural gas appliances. Consumers are better educated and want to make the best long-term choice that will add both value and comfort to their homes. â&#x20AC;?

Question: When designing a kitchen, which do you recommendâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; marble or granite?

What is the most appealing finishâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;polished, honed, or brushed?

When it comes to tile in the bathroom, do you prefer tiny, intricate mosaic tiles or larger tiles?

She Said:

He Said:

She Said: While marble has never been the top choice for kitchens, it makes for beautiful countertops. If the money is available to get this high-quality stone and homeowners are willing to keep up with the marbleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maintenance, then marble is completely worth it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s both waterproof and heatproof, but it can stain easily. Because of this, sealing it properly with a stain-resistant coating is a must.

He Said: Granite is a harder stone than marble, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most durable for kitchen countertops. Usually, the kitchen is the room in the house that needs the most countertop space, and granite proves to be much more affordable than marble. In general, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to scratch, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t harbor bacteria, and continues to keep its beautiful finish and luster for years.

She Said: Polished is the most popular finish, because it uses an abrasive material to make the stone shine with a mirror-like finish. However, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m partial to the honed finish. Like the polished stone, honed stone is abrasively polished, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shine like a polished finish, giving the honed stone a slightly muted look.

He Said: Brushed is the most aesthetically pleasing to me. To obtain the brushed finish, the fabricators apply metal (or hard plastic) brushes to the surface of the stone to create texture. This process removes the top layer of the stone and gives it an antiqued finish. Many homeowners choose this for historic remodels because it lends itself to the aesthetic of the olden days.

She Said: Mosaic tiles offer more design and greater colors. Because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so tiny, you can actually mix them with larger tiles to form intricate patterns or borders around the room, giving the space a pop of color. Small tiles give the room an artisan, custom feel.

He Said: As a general rule, larger tiles make rooms feel larger. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to use them in smaller bathrooms to enhance the space. The only difficulty that larger tiles present is the planningâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; you have to make sure you cut them to fit around corners and to the edge of the walls.

A Glimpse into the Home of Lowcountry Painter Jonathan Green By Christy Conway Photography By Patrick Brickman & Matt Bolt

J

onathan Green has a sweet smile, which curls slightly on the right side. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a smirk, for Jonathan is not smug. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a beam, though it is clear he is a contented man. I came to discoverâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;while interviewing him at his Daniel Island atelierâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the expression is empathy. It is a look I can envision gracing any one of his subjectsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; featureless faces. His smile could easily spread from underneath one of his famously painted wide-brimmed straw hats, set romantically close to a bright green marsh. I suppose this is true because Jonathan paints the autobiography of his childhood. Each painting is not only a snapshot of Gullah life on South Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barrier islands, but also a memory. Leaning with one arm placed on the back of a white leather swivel chair, he recalls for me his inspiration: Gardens Corner, his hometown. With his subtle smile, Jonathan details journeying from the intersection of highways 17 and 21 to New York, cooking in the Air Force, andâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;via the Art Institute in Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;becoming one of the most celebrated painters of the Southern experience. 121

our work celebrates the agrarian lifestyle, yet youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made this loft on Daniel Island your home for the past three years. What made you choose this location? Jonathan: One of the reasons we [Jonathan and his partner] moved here is because of the space. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really difficult to find this kind of home on one floor in [downtown] Charleston. We wanted a space where we can have some art around us. We have a 4,000-squarefoot storage unit. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now beginning to feel, at our age, that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunate to have things stored away for such a long period of time.

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve surrounded yourself with quite a mix of art here in your home. Which piece is your favorite?

So, how do you go about choosing the art pieces with which you decorate your home?

Jonathan: My favorite piece is usually the most recent purchase. But then, you know, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this table Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sitting next to, because every time I look at this table I think of Jennifer [Davis, a local artist] and our relationshipâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;our friendship. So, every piece I look at can be my favorite because of the stories behind it, the time that it was purchased, where I was in my life, or where the artists were in their lives. Most of the artists I know personally, because I only purchase items from living artists.

Jonathan: When we decide to make a purchase, we do so over a period of time; we always purchase at least three pieces. We purchase a piece that we just must have, which we call a top tier piece for what we can afford at the time. The second piece is purchased for museum and traveling exhibition purposes, and the third piece is usually purchased for resale if we get into trouble and need to move something outâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;get some cash.

Do you and your partner of 35 years always agree on style? Jonathan: Living together for many years, you kind of become one in terms of your aesthetics and appreciation. When Richard and I first met, he was all about surrealism and cubism, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been interested in primitivism and impressionism with folk tied in to it. We just had to work on it. You both have to look at it everyday, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both investing in it. It would be a disservice to the artist to have a piece in your home that one likes and the other dislikes.

Obviously, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just an art collector; you are an artist yourself. How did you initially express yourself artistically? Jonathan: I never remember not being involved in art, even though I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the terminology, phrase, or word: art. I always had the ability to mimic. I could just look at something and draw it. Several members of the family became concerned with me always marking on things. So, my cousin started disassembling brown paper bags. She would iron them out and give them to me, because we were not allowed to use school paper to draw on. So, those were some of my earliest drawings as a kidâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;on brown paper sacks.

Did you enjoy that medium? Jonathan: I related to the medium because of the color of the paper in relationship to my skin tone. So, it just made sense for me. And, when I was able to paint on a white surface, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make any sense. So, when would you say you transitioned into painting? Jonathan: My first painting was probably at the age of four, and that was a paint-by-numbers set. I never painted within the lines, and I never used the color designated. (laughs)

LOWCOUNTRY PAINTER JONATHAN GREEN

I guess youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a love of color since day one. Which color do you like to work with the most? Jonathan: Yellow is my favorite color because it is the most difficult color to work with. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost impossible to paint with just yellow, meaning that yellow is a dominant color on the canvas. Yellow is also very translucent; you have to apply layers and layers of it and also incorporate white in some cases.

grandmother was an Eastern Star [a fraternal organization established in 1876]; my grandmother also owned a nightclub. So, she was a very resourceful woman. She was a small woman but she was a big woman in her ideas, and her personality, and her friendships, and in her aspiration for the future of her children.

The majority of your work focuses on your experience growing up in Gardens Corners. Do you focus on this subject matter because you miss the past and lament the change of your childhood town? Jonathan: I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss anything about my past. I paint my past because of the need for my past to be a part of my present. When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m painting my past, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m never really thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, it has totally changed.â&#x20AC;? I still go to my family church every second week, do my ushering duties, and eat the same kinds of food. I live in the present because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the past, for me. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at the landscape, as an artist, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see much of a change.

The painting in your entryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Young Brideâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;features your childhood home in yellow. Was it really yellow? Jonathan: My house was at least ten different colors over the course of my lifetime living in Gardens Corner. My paintings serve as a testament to the beauty of the past as I saw it from my eyes. I understand your grandmother raised you in Gardens Corner. What was she like? Jonathan: I came from a very rich childhood. I knew my grandparents; I knew my great grandparents; I knew my great uncles, aunts, and cousins. We have a very unique family structure. When I was a kid, most children were reared by their grandparents. My grandmother, Eloise Steward Johnson, was a woman that just loved her family. She was unfortunate in that she had to raise her siblings at the age of 11 because both her parents died. She married at 14, and then she had three or four kids. My

preparation of food to planting of food to cooking and storing. And, to see all of it in a supermarket just blew my mind. I was sick at the thought of looking at a chicken that was prepared and wrapped in a bag.

Do you have a specific memory of her that you would like to share? Jonathan: The first time my grandmother took me to a store in downtown Beaufort, that I can remember, I was around eight years old. I was just amazed with having lived with a grandmother and all the things that she knew how to do from

If not nostalgia, why then do you choose to paint Gardens Corner iconography? Jonathan: After studying at the Art Institute in Chicago, visiting museums, and reading autobiographies of artists, I realized that I needed to include my family into my body of work so that my paintings become an autobiographical collection of stories. My mother, for example, went to Mather School, and that paint-

ing I didâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Mather Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was a way of including my motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history into my body of work. The adults in your paintings tend to be featureless, though. Why do you choose to leave your subjects without faces? Jonathan: I wanted to have the people closest to me understand my career as an artist. You know, coming from rural communities, people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what an artist is. So, I thought if I were to start painting from the earliest memory of a child, then I

could help educate them about my process as an artist. I had learned to paint in the fashion of the great Renaissance painters, the Impressionist painters, and the WPA [Work Progress Administration] painters. I was trying to find a voice or a style, if you will. As a child, even though I could remember shapes and colors, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really remember facial features. I thought if I could start painting from the perspective of a child, then there would be no excuse for people from my fam-

ily or community not to understand what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing. So, I purposely started with just stick figures. Then, from stick figures, I applied a little bit more sophistication in terms of the bodies. I eventually went to the facial features, very slowly; this was over a period of 20 years. How did you end up as an art student in Chicago, so far away from your South Carolina roots?

Jonathan: I entered the military when I was 15 or 16. I went in the year the Vietnam War ended. After that, I went to a vocational school in East Grand Forks, Minnesota to study textile design. Then, I was offered a job at a big textile manufacturing company. I decided not to take that job with the help of one of my professors at the vocational school. He suggested that, rather me getting settled in a professionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;because I was

only about 20 years oldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I should continue to go to school. So, they literally put me on a train down to Chicago. I enrolled as a fashion student. I remember my first day at school, going, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh no, this is not for me.â&#x20AC;? So, I walked up to the third floor, which was the painting department and switched my studies to painting and drawing. Chicago is known for having a vibrant jazz and art scene. And, you were there in a critical moment in your career. How do you feel Chicago influenced your work?

ministration of Mr. and Mrs. Roosevelt. It was when America needed to be redefined because it had been so rundown from the Spanish American War and WWI. You know, this country was just in shambles. It was just hideous to look at. So, the WPA period was a project to clean all of that up, and the project relied heavily on the arts. Most importantly for me, it was the first time that African Americans were allowed to paint their image. But, after about three or four years, the WPA period was over and all the excess artwork was ordered to be destroyed. They were afraid they [the art pieces] would get into the open market and destroy the art industry. I became very fascinated with this period of time because, of course, you had an overwhelming percentage of women working for the WPA project, so most of the works that were destroyed were of women and people of color. Coming out of a matriarchal culture where women are so important, my heart just kind of

Jonathan: When I was at the Art Institute, I became a Veterans Affairs (VA) counselor my first year there. As a VA counselor, I had access to librariesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;volumes of material. So, I found myself reading everything I could get my hands on, and I was just fascinated with Chicago and the Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fair that was held in Chicago in 1893. It was the first time for me as a young adult to read about the history and culture of a city,

And, the area that I became most interested in

tugged at the lack of importance of women in our arts culture. In the South, particularly in Gullah culture, storytelling and art are how people pass history on to the next generation. How do you think art is going to continue, as a form of passing down culture, with the arts programs in schools being so decimated? Jonathan: I come from an extreme point of view in terms of art in the schools. I think that art classes should be supported by parents in the community. I think the government should have nothing to do with it. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always known there are three Rsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;reading, writing, and arithmetic. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I was raised. Well, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fourth R, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art. And, when you

look at 20 to 30 thousand years ago in cave drawings and paintings, the entire culture was surrounded by art. Art was the core, if you will. Here we are today, supposedly more sophisticated, and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much appreciation for our arts at all. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an arts program in your community, then you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a sense of culture in your community. When no one else has a sense of your culture, there is nothing to be passed down. Speaking of passing history down, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recently started the Lowcountry Rice Project. Can you tell me about that? Jonathan: Charleston is an unbelievable city in that it was the second wealthiest city in America for over 100 years. It has a 250-year legacy of rice economy, and yet

no one talks about it now. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like it never existed. When you look at all the great mansions and educational facilities, few people connect it to Rice Culture. What I would love to see, through my ongoing conversations about rice, is universities starting curriculums around Rice Culture and economy. I know why, politically, rice isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talked about. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about shame and guilt; guilt on the part of white people and shame on the part of black people. I think we have to begin to find a point of reckoning with ourselves and our pasts to develop a better day for tomorrow.

Learn how an architect can add value to the entire process from concept and design through construction and completion. The Homes by Architects Tour could not happen without the cooperation of several local architectural firms including Herlong & Associates, which has designed over a dozen spectacular homes on Daniel Island (including four of the six homes on the tour), Spivey Architects, and Cobb Architects. We're also grateful to the sponsors of the Homes by Architects Tourâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;custom home builder Phillip W. Smith, General Contractor, Cook Bonner Construction, and Structures Building Company.

  Making Outdoors Livable â&#x20AC;&#x153;Palmettoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mosquito program is hassle free. There is nothing I need to do. The biggest surprise to us is the difference in the usability of the back deck and pool. Being on the marsh we expected lots of no-see-ums, instead we have found that we are able to be out right into the twilight hours. I know the difference is real because I can come in from being attacked by bugs on the dock to find the deck and pool area nearly free of pests!â&#x20AC;?

A Boeing Love Story B y M eg an B ru ner Phot og raphy B y Pa t rick B ri ckm an & M a t t Bolt

W

hen Boeing came to Charleston, hiring thousands of new workers to build the 787 Dreamliner, their presence in the area made a huge impact on the Lowcountry. John Jacob, one of the first employees in South Carolina hired by Boeing, and his wife Amanda (a local girl from Sullivan's Island) share their story of meeting, falling in love, and collaborating with Amandaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father to build their very first home.

 Ĺ&#x2014; Ĺ&#x2014;Ĺ Ĺ&#x2014; Ĺ&#x2014;Ä&#x160;Ĺ&#x2014;*,#(!Ĺ&#x2014;ßúÝßĹ&#x2014;Ĺ&#x2014;Ĺ&#x2014;Ĺ&#x2014;


A Boeing Love Story

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I

t was April 16 of 2009,â&#x20AC;? Amanda recalls as she reminisces on the early stages of her relationship with John, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I met him at Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ice House. He had the prettiest blue eyes I had ever seen. As the couple chatted, Amanda learned that John worked for Boeingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one of the most influential businesses to come to Charleston in recent years. When Boeing announced their plans in 2008 to break ground on a new facility in the Lowcountry, residents knew that could only mean one thingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a boost in the local economy. But Boeing isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just a massive building near the airport; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a coalition of local people living the American Dream and making airplanes that link Charleston to the rest of the world. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey to Charleston began when he moved to the area for work. As that job was waning, he was quickly offered a career with Boeing, and between frequent trips around the world (including spots like Seattle and Japan), he began to settle into the relaxed, Lowcountry way of life. There was just one aspect missing in Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Amanda. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We dated off-and-on for a year or so, and at one point, I just knew I wanted to marry her. So, I took her to Rome [Italy],â&#x20AC;? exclaims John. Amanda was sure that he was going to propose during their trip, but he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pop the question until a bit later. Before the couple knew it, wedding bells were ringing, and they were dreaming about building their first home. Amandaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Robby Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;respected local builder with EPIC Development and Goat Island residentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was more than thrilled to begin work on his daughter and son-in-lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home in The Preserve at Fenwick Plantation on Johns Island.

Robby and his EPIC Development business partner Kevin Flynn have been thriving through the recent recession building numerous homes at The Cottages at Cypress Point on Kiawah Island, a development spearheaded by EPIC and architect Mitch Laplante. The semi-custom, architecturally designed homes in the neighborhood provide a host of value for homeowners, including the luxury of living in a unique home without the price tag of an architectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fully custom plans. Furthermore, all the homes are constructed by EPIC with incredible consideration for the natural surroundings; they

A Boeing Love Story donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have dumpsters on the jobsite because they utilize every piece of material possible to reduce landfill waste. To help save the Jacobs money, Robby and Kevin replicated the design of one of the homes at Cypress Point and used similar plans to build the newlywedsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home in The Preserve at Fenwick Plantation, another neighborhood created by EPIC Development and Mitch Laplante. Building homes for relatives at The Preserve has become a family tradition for the developers. Mitchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children have homes in the neighborhood, and now Robbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kin, Amanda and John, are growing roots on the historic property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a labor of love here,â&#x20AC;? notes Robby, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most satisfying project Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever worked on. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve built so many beautiful, large homes, but this one takes the cake; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to provide my daughter with shelter and a place to call home forever.â&#x20AC;? Fenwick Plantationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soil is a history lesson in itself. In 1730, John Fenwick established his plantation home on the land that once witnessed battles of the Revolutionary War. Fenwick Hall, which is one of the oldest homes in the state, served as the British headquarters in Charleston during the Revolution and as a Civil War-era military hospital. A land with history like this feeds the mind of Amanda, a St. Andrews Middle School social studies teacher, and piques the curiosity of John, who has spent many days scouring the land with his metal detector uncovering treasures of days past. Prepared to make their own history on the land, John and Amanda joyfully made the big move into their very first home. y
