Construction progress of our new home
on Clyde Ln. Palmetto Hall
This page is dedicated to the process of building our new home in Palmetto Hall Plantation on Hilton Head. We started construction on February 1st or so 2005. We anticipate that it will take about 10-months to complete the process. We are the General Contractors on this project and will oversee it till it completion. We will be working with our hired sub contractors and hope to get a quality home, where we want at a reasonable cost.

This is the lot after we removed the trees and the fill dirt was just spread out.

Then arrived the concrete and the crews.

This room is the "Carolina room" or screened -in porch.

This area is the guest bedroom suite and the kitchen.

This is a view from the back looking towards the street.

Almost done with the pouring the concrete.
