Choosing brick or stone siding for your new dream home!
If you are making the choice to build your home rather than buy an existing home on the market, you will have more control over what products and finishes go into the design. The siding that you choose will have a major impact on the overall appearance and style of your home. When you build, you can opt for traditional siding options, or choose something that gives your home additional durability and character. At Donald A. Gardner Architects, we have large selection of homes with brick or stone exterior options that can meet your needs and preferences.
The Drayton Hall 1238 is under construction in Duncan, SC!
Welcome to our Rendering to Reality series where we follow the construction of our home plans from breaking ground to move-in ready! In this series, you will get the opportunity to see the building process and experience the anticipation and excitement of home building. Check back frequently as we introduce new installments and updates.
Builder Tim Snow of Avery Construction is currently constructing the Drayton Hall house plan 1238 and the beginning construction phases are featured below.
The Drayton Hall features unmatched curb appeal with a wide stone entry, courtyard and fountain. The dramatic stone arch, front courtyard and Old World style mixed materials create a lasting first impression. No detail has been overlooked in this spacious two story European style home. Entertainers and chefs will appreciate the spacious, open kitchen. The large island provides working space for multiple chefs. A butler’s pantry connects the kitchen to the dining room and creates a space to stash dirty dishes or extra wine and linens. A large, open e-space connects the breakfast and kitchen space to the family room. Built-ins and a decorative ceiling make this room comfortable but luxurious. A lavish master suite on the main floor and a spacious, secluded guest suite upstairs create flexibility. Space for casual living abounds in the large Family Room adjacent to the kitchen, while a large, open e-space adds convenience. Custom-styled details including a laundry chute, built-in cabinetry, niches and elegant ceiling treatments ensure that this home will stand out in a crowd.
The Topeka was recently constructed in Pawleys Island, SC. The homeowners captured photos of the entire process, from Rendering to Reality!
We love watching our designs transform from blueprints to a place to call home. The Hyman family recently completed that process with their builder Will Rabon of Rabon Construction and shared their building experience with us. Follow along from ground-breaking to move-in ready!

This stone-and-shake home plan features a whimsical exterior with sloping gables, arched elements, and metal accents. Exceptional details highlight the first floor, from the island kitchen and over-sized walk-in pantry to the multi-functional utility room. Expect royal-treatment from the master suite with a vast, tray ceiling topped bedroom, abundant closet space, and an opulent bath. The second floor offers secondary bedrooms, a bonus room, and a convenient laundry chute. Bonus space on the third floor is a treat for the homeowner to add a home theater, game room, or gym.
