Two days later the basement and crawl space are ready for the surveyor to return to square up the house. (Duke Power will be moving the power pole in the near future.)

The Driveway & Site Preparation

The Driveway after significant and much needed maintenance.
The driveway to the property had not been worked on in 20 years, so we knew we would need to spend some money on it. Danny Holt out of Winnsboro did a great job, reclaiming the drainage ditches and adding crush and run where it was needed. He also moved some brush and lumber we had accumulated from clearing the site.
House site roughed out after we removed chain link fence, and other odds and ends.

By mid October the drive was finished and we were ready to begin (on site at least!)

Getting Started

In the summer of 2019 we started looking for someone to build a house for us on our property on Lake Wateree. We narrowed it down to two builders and America’s Home Place convinced us that they were the right builder for us.

Having selected a base plan to work with, we worked with the Columbia, SC Americas Home Place team to revise the plan to fit our specific needs. A great experience. The base plan comes with a set number of windows, doors, ceiling fans etc. If you remove one somewhere you can add it back in another location. We wanted sliding glass doors from the living area to the deck which gave us two windows to put in the basement space. The team worked with us to create a unique home from the base plan that we started with.
