A First Hand Perspective

aiken-design-center

The Design Center is amazing- better than any big box store! There are high quality selections to dazzle the mind, and designers eager to create a living space from your imagination.” -Dave & Sue Walker

“We were shown and introduced to the staff at the Design Center, and introduced to the developer’s methodology and philosophy as well. The Design Center is amazing- better than any big box store! There are high quality selections to dazzle the mind, and designers eager to create a living space from your imagination. Better yet, let them loose to create design ideas from your suggestions! You won’t be disappointed. We met with Nita, who is truly a design visionary, and lots of fun.”

“Mr. Steele has vetted a select few builders that will bring your design from concept to reality. In our mind, the talented Design Center staff and the builders’ standards for high quality, in a growing and integrated community, were the deciding factors for us to buy a homesite. We will probably start building before we get to Woodside, so it’s reassuring to know the quality building standards expected by Mr. Steele and Woodside Plantation will make our new home our dream come true.”


Charleston Front Porch (Custom)“If you are in the area and would like to see what a Carolina Signature Home really is, stop by. We’d enjoy showing you our home. We’d love to have you join us in paradise.” -John & Kathleen Bennett

My wife Kathleen and I “found” Carolina Signature Homes almost 4 years ago after we attended an Ideal Living Exposition in the Chicago. That was our introduction and motivation to come down to Aiken and see Woodside Plantation and the handy work of Carolina Signature Homes in person. We did that in early 2013 with a visit arranged by Mike Manney. What we saw was absolutely amazing!

The combination of Woodside Plantation, The Reserve and the homes that were available from Carolina Signature Homes made our decision to move to Aiken and Woodside Plantation an easy one. We were very impressed with the variety of home plans that CSH’s offered. That combined with the many beautiful lots that were available was an unbeatable deal. After spending about 6 months looking here in Woodside and other developments in the south, we decided Woodside was the place for us. In mid-2012, we found the perfect lot with the help of all the folks at Carolina Signature Homes. In June, it was ours!

Charleston Great Room (Custom)Again, everyone at Carolina Signature Homes, particularly in the design center, pitched in to help us plan and build the home of our dreams. The professional and very talented staff within the design center provided us with the guidance and support we needed to move our house from a set of plans to reality. Once construction began, again we were very impressed with the quality, design and construction of our home. The builders at CSH’s were fantastic. Ken Starnes, our CHS Manager was truly outstanding, keeping our best interests at the forefront of the entire construction team.

This build quality was very evident in April…after we had moved in…and not one, but two F-2 tornadoes literally came to our back door before veering off. We incurred  no damage. None! To me, that was proof that this house was built to the highest standards by people that cared!

Kathleen and myself love our new Carolina Signature Home and are proud to call it home.

If you are in the area and would like to see what a Carolina Signature Home really is, stop by. We’d enjoy showing you our home. We’d love to have you join us in paradise.

“We were able to change and modify as we progressed through the building and finishing phases. We have built four homes previously but would not hesitate to rate our experience with David Abney as the best !” -Dave Cook

David Abney built our home in 2014. Our experience with David and his team was outstanding. Our custom home has extremely high quality and was built with our participation and full input into design and execution. We were able to change and modify as we progressed through the building and finishing phases. We have built four homes previously but would not hesitate to rate our experience with David Abney as the best !!

“(We are) completely satisfied with our experience of buying, designing, building and financing our new home!” -Noble and Lisa Diller 

Every step of the way everyone was courteous, respectful and responsive to our every question and concern. I counted….I have been involved in building five homes or condos in my life and this has been by far the best experience. Coming from a construction background I know how intense and stressful it can be at times. We would like to personally thank everyone that was involved. We look forward to enjoying our new house in the coming years.
