Building your own home usually begins long before you purchase a home site or engage a builder. It starts as a wish, then transforms into a dream. In the Lowcountry, the landscape is the first option most buyers seek out when they begin their homebuilding adventure. The land must be large enough for the dogs to run; wide enough for the children to play; and still beautiful and natural enough to encourage the birds to return to the trees.

There are several communities in Beaufort that offer spectacular sites with wooded, marsh, lakefront and ocean views. Once the home's landscape has been chosen, building a home can be as exciting as it is intimidating. Choosing the right builder will mean comfort, harmony and perfection. For many in the area, remodeling also opens up new possibilities in home construction. According to a survey by the National Association of Realtors®, nearly six out of 10 home buyers engage in a remodeling or home improvement project within the first three months of purchase.

If building or remodeling a new home is important to you. Consider these longtime builders who have spent years in the Lowcountry making dreams come true by providing top quality work and value for their customers.

Building a new home doesn't have to be stressful. In fact, Centex, one of America's leading home building companies, can prove it. With a focused mission to "Build the Best", Centex has once again delivered on their promise in its Shadow Moss community.

Conveniently located near Parris Island, the Marine Corps Air Station, Beaufort Memorial Hospital, the Naval Hospital, and the University of South Carolina Beaufort, Shadow Moss exemplifies the attention to detail that has made Centex neighborhoods warm and inviting. Sidewalks, park benches and even a butterfly garden is just part of the family-friendly amenities that make up Shadow Moss.

"Shadow Moss is a very family-oriented community. Many of our homeowners are in the military or work in business and put in long hours. Shadow Moss is a short commute for them, so they can see their family more," said Centex Sales Consultant Heather Baker.

In April, Centex introduced the Classic Collection, the newest home designs for the Shadow Moss community. Homes range in size from 1288 square feet to 3545 square feet in 1 and 2-story floor plans and start from the $160s.

"Our home value is exceptional," adds Heather. "All homes are equipped with our Centex Energy Advantage Program and a 2 year fit-and-finish warranty."

Homeownership is one of America's greatest opportunities and Centex makes it affordable while offering quality craftsmanship and family-oriented neighborhoods.
