INDOOR-OUTDOOR LIVING

South Carolina’s Lowcountry is truly “in the zone” for indooroutdoor living.

COLORFUL CONSTRUCTION

Pink is a bold color. Whether you see it on clothing, in a work of art or on a car, when something is painted pink, it announces its presence in style. If you live in the Lowcountry, you may have noticed another way that pink is being used: on building materials.
