King Street, Charleston
A historic 1792 home on King Street originally held four separate apartments when it was first purchased. The home was completely renovated, from it's slate roof to full basement, and returned to a single family residence. This historic home has many environmental friendly features including the replacement of select windows with Marvin Windows double insulated hurricane units. Insulation of all portions of the house was very important, with one of the first blower door tests completed in the city, and meets high efficiency ratings unheard of for historic homes. Care was taken to protect the historic pegged roof rafters yet provide the best insulation possible. The masonry tuckpointing was researched and completed at the front and north side elevations. The mechanical system is a high efficiency unit designed and installed by Mills Brothers HVAC. History prevailed on the front portion of the home and they kept the modified, but historic, 1930's single pane windows. This is the third project Clark-Glidewell/Architect completed for this client.
Sayle Road, Charleston
With their growing family of 5 the owners moved to The Crescent from downtown Charleston and retained Clark-Glidewell/Architect for a second project to design and renovate their entire home. The existing house was renovated with a new kitchen, multiple bathrooms, conversion of an enclosed Sunroom into a wonderful Screen Porch for outdoor living. A large addition containing the Entertainment Room, Laundry and large Master Suite was constructed. A simple open living plan for easy family living was the main design focus with access to the backyard for the children. The second level contains a private Master Suite with a luxurious Master Bath. A small outbuilding was added for a much needed home office and storage. Tucked in the highly wooded neighborhood, this addition blends seamlessly with the surrounding area.

Church Street, Charleston
A major renovation to the interior of this large Charleston Single focuses on the Kitchen, Dining Areas, Master Bedroom and Master Bath. Removing small rooms and rear stairwayshelp this project become a reality. Open floor plan at the Kitchen with high end cabinet construction and hand painted walls make this project one to remember. Combining a very inefficient bath and closet into one room allows for a spacious Master Bath with Laundry. This bath is designed simply in the space available with large tub and shower. Access to a small balcony through French doors allows the owners to bring the outdoors into the space. Maintenance issues, from repairs to windows and roof leaks were also completed during this renovation.
