Modern Home Construction Update: Lake Wylie House

By on July 21, 2016. Posted in , .

Last week I spent a couple days visiting my clients in Lake Wylie, South Carolina. (Actually, I was there mainly to visit their home, but it was a lot of fun to see them too!)

This visit was full of the stories I tell about why I love being a residential architect: From seeing the excitement on the two boys’ faces when they asked if they could show me their playroom to talking through details with my client’s father who is making what is going to be a spectacular front door by hand to hearing how much the whole family loves their new home… It was inspiring to say the least!

Lake Wylie House - Site Visit

Site visit: Day 1

It has been a few months since I shared photos of the construction progress on this house so we have a lot of catching up to do! We’ve got walls, roof, most of the windows, fireplace, electrical, plumbing…. Don’t miss the fun Time Lapse Video at the end to sum it all up, but first let’s see how well I can walk you through with photos…

The masons were laying the first “bricks” while I was there. The boys spent most of the afternoon watching them work, even in the 90+ degree heat!

Ooooh yes I love that cantilever over the entrance!


Nothing like seeing your design come to life to remind you how exciting the world of architecture is …especially when we can cover 3 months of construction in about a minute!
