As we continue celebrating our 2021 Prism Award winning clients, we give you a look at three projects completed by custom builder SHELTER Custom-Built Living. The SHELTER team earned recognition for their Remodel Homes and Additions in the $200k-$300k category, Pool and Outdoor Living Space in the $600k-$700k category, and Single Family Home in the $2.5-$3 million category.

This custom home addition was connected via covered walkway. It was important to the owners that the addition meld well with the original house. SHELTER’s build-design team took the existing home’s exterior and interior details and developed an updated vision that included a new bathroom and spiral staircase.

The custom builder created a backyard oasis at this Daniel Island home for the owners to enjoy all year round. This project included a new fireplace on their newly tiled back porch to give them privacy. SHELTER also added an outdoor kitchen, covered lounge area, and a pool for relaxation.

SHELTER designed this Daniel Island home with clean lines in mind. This is a modern space with an abundance of natural light. The focus was on form, function, and simplicity. Adding to the high quality design are the eco-friendly and energy efficient elements included in this home. They used LED can lights, tankless water heaters, spray foam insulation, high efficiency HVAC heat pumps, synthetic turf, and recycled decking.
