Arnett Custom Homes Named Best Custom Home Builder In South Carolina

Charleston based Arnett Custom Homes was named the best custom home builder in South Carolina by Home Builder Digest, an online publication that celebrates the best home builders and residential architects across the US.

"Our list covers the best custom home builders in Isle of Palms, South Carolina ... and after looking into the work of every contractor in the area, we selected Arnett Custom Homes as one of the best firms. We were particularly impressed with their work on the Tower House in the Isle of Palms,” said Jack Cookson, editor of Home Builder Digest.

Good home builders are not only experts in construction but also management and service. These criteria should be central when you’re trying to find the right builder for you. When you find the right professional for your project everything flows a little more smoothly, from the planning stages to the post-building maintenance. Sometimes a lot more smoothly.

Arnett Custom Homes has been highly-rated among South Carolina's client community circles for over 12 years. The firm serves as a modern home builder and general contractor for patrons in Charleston, Isle of Palms, Johns Island, and Sullivan's Island.

A collaborative approach that factors in the client's input yields results with optimal quality. The firm follows a streamlined process that makes every development flow smoothly. The firm gives meticulous attention to craftsmanship and detail. That laser-focus is combined with strict compliance with budgets and schedules.

Cookson states, “The firm stood out to our editorial team for their project quality, background, experience, merits, and client feedback. Most are well-versed in a wide variety of residential styles, and some provide commercial spaces as well.”

Owner Travis Arnett has a portfolio filled with custom homes, high-end and historical renovations, defective construction cases, and custom millwork. This Tower House in the Isle of Palms is a solid showcase of his company's building proficiency.

As the name suggests, the property is three stories high with a façade that parallels a tall tower. It features crisp sidings, a coastal interior design, and a pool and lounge area. A white palette both indoors and out gives the getaway home a peaceful ambiance, which adds to the relaxing feel in every space.
