CHDShowWebsite_Jan16_HomePG_10The Charleston Home+ Design team wants you to join us for the Charleston Home + Design Show! It is being held Friday, January 29th through Sunday 31st at the newly renovated Gaillard Center in Historic Downtown Charleston. Hands down, there is no venue more elegant and sophisticated to stage a home show in Charleston than this location. It’s a beautifully designed space, and to make the most of it, we hired local architect Trevor McNeil Draper, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP and principal of TMD Architects to help us create the floor plan. Trevor walked the space while it was under construction and listened closely to our needs. He then assembled eight different floor plans using different configurations to give us several options to choose from, all the while carefully adhering to strict fire-marshal codes for each of his floor plans. If you are preparing to build a new home, talk with Trevor about how he can help you. Don’t go it alone. You’re investing too much money and too much time to take a chance that the outcome of your project will not be what you want. Working with Trevor is like buying an insurance policy, which ensures a positive outcome on your next project.
