We wanted to let you know that our family is very happy with our PCH home in Murrel’s Inlet. We’re really enjoying the neighborhood, and love our house. It’s been a long time coming for us… almost 10 years until we’ve been able to own our home, and we’re glad that we have a Port […]Read more »
THE PORT CITY ADVANTAGE
Port City Homes, serving the Charleston and Myrtle Beach, SC areas, is with you every step of the way as you build your custom home. We are not an assembly line builder. Each home we design is unique – a reflection of the needs of your family and your personality. You have every right to be involved in the building process from the time you select Port City Homes to the day you move in, and beyond. Your voice matters to us because Our Reputation is Building.
Port City Homes can now be ENERGY STAR Certified; please ask for details. To earn the Energy Star Certification, a home must meet guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. We use energy efficient materials, construction processes and appliances which can save you hundreds on energy costs and make you eligible for Federal Tax Credits. ENERGY STAR distinguishes energy–efficient products which will pay you back in lower energy bills within a reasonable amount of time, even without a tax credit.
The Port City Homes team is ready to offer support to you through all phases of achieving home ownership. We understand that this may be the first ever home you’ve built, but even if it’s not, we want to be there to assist you, and offer guidance that we’ve learned from building many homes. We can help with the following key items:
- Understanding Real Estate Terms
- Picking a home & a neighborhood
- Finding a home loan
- Becoming comfortable with the design / build process
- and others…
We understand that selection of a community is a huge step in the new home process. We are building in some of the best communities in the Lowcountry, both in Charleston area and in the Myrtel Beach area. Charleston communities include Rivertowne, Brownswood Farms, Peerless Pointe and Hibben. Myrtle Beach communities include The Bays at Litchfield, Murrells Inlet and Myrtle Beach. These communities have great amenities- top schools, convenient shopping, tons of recreation opportunities, and easy access to commuter roads.
After you have narrowed down the communities of interest, it’s time to refine your thinking about what’s going to be in your new house. A good way to work through this process of making trade-offs is to look at some of our floor plans. These floor plans provide total square footage, rendering of the front elevation of the house, renderings of the some interior rooms, and overall layout of each floor and area of the house. This is a quick way to help you determine if your living pattern can map onto a base home that we have. From one or more of the base homes, then we can discuss options for customizing the base model to suit your needs.
With an idea of community and general style of home that you desire, it’s definitely time for you to zero in on which features you will want in your home. A great way to do this is to visit model homes, viewing them and walking through them to see how they fit. We have model homes in most of our communities and often have homes under construction that you can tour with us. The Bays of Litchfield, where we’re currently building has a single-family model home for you to visit, with a PCH Special Floor Plan with over 2000 sf ENERGY STAR Rated. This model includes 9 Foot Ceilings – Solid Wood Doors – a custom Lighting Package, as well as a Finished Garage.
Hi Bruce & Drew- We are extremely pleased with our new home in Rivertowne. The house has all of the features that we need, and it’s built in a rock solid way- sometimes I just go around opening & closing doors and drawers to marvel at how well everything fits together!
