Make yourself at home!

Daniel Island Luxury Home Tour, Saturday, April 27, 11 a.m to 5 p.m.

If you build it they will come, especially when it involves a sneak peek at some of the community’s most magnificent properties. At least that’s the hope for those behind the upcoming Charleston Home + Design Magazine’s Daniel Island Luxury Tour of Homes, set for this Saturday, April 27, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Now in its 7th year, the event will allow attendees to walk-through four “exceptional” custom homes, stated a press release. All are private residences on Daniel Island that are opening their doors to the public for six hours only.

Each participating home on the self-guided tour will be hosted by the builder responsible for the home’s construction, along with a few select local artisans “who help homeowners create the homes of their dreams every day,” continued the release.

Builders will also be on hand to answer questions and talk one-on-one with tour-goers, as well as to point out unique and premium features of each property.

“Anyone preparing to build a new home or undergo a remodel project now or in the future should take the tour,” said Tim Barkley, publisher, Charleston Home +Design Magazine. “When my wife and I were getting ready to build our house we went on EVERY home tour we could find to get inspiration and ideas…You’re seeing the actual materials and finishes used in the construction of the home, which is no comparison to just looking at photos on a computer screen.”

The homes on the tour are all newly built, added Barkley, and feature the most up-to-date materials, technology and building methods.

“This is a chance to meet the builder you might hire,” he said. “The builders of all four custom homes on the tour will be on hand to answer your questions and talk one-on-one. Every builder who has been involved with our previous tours has ultimately built a house for someone who took the tour. The tour is a great opportunity to ‘pre-interview’ the builders and see how their personalities mesh with yours since you’ll be spending so much time together while your home is under construction. It’s incredibly important that your personality matches with your builder.”

The event will also serve as a fundraiser for East Cooper Habitat for Humanity. For additional details, visit www.DanielIslandLuxury
