Demo has begun on our newest rehab project! If you tuned into PBS’s This Old House Charleston, or flipped through Charleston Home + Design’s Spring 2018 issue (Find us on pages 41, 145 & 200!), you are going to love our newest project. Located in the up & coming Westside neighborhood, in the heart of the peninsula and walking distance to trendy new upper King Street restaurants such as Leon’s Fine Poultry & Oyster Shop, Little Jack’s Tavern, Pancito & Lefty and Renzo this Charleston single will be getting a much-needed make-over. Built in 1910, this house is considered a category 4 structure by the city and it maintains the historic integrity of the neighborhood. Part of the renovation process will be to restore the original architectural features of this old house while also modernizing the livability of the home.
We will be taking it down to the studs, re-arranging and opening up the interior floor plan and adding on a 2nd floor master suite. We have uncovered the original brick chimney which will be the prominent feature in the downstairs study as well as the upstairs guest room. The upstairs bedrooms will have access to the 2nd floor piazza while the master suite will have its own private balcony overlooking the reclaimed brick courtyard. This house will be getting all new electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems to make it comfortable for modern living. We are working on the design scheme for the kitchen & bathrooms and can’t wait to showcase them later this summer. You can find our inspiration on Pinterest, Houzz and Instagram for this house.
The surrounding neighborhood has seen a large amount of revitalization in the last few years with restorations, renovations and trendy new restaurants opening up. SNOS (Slightly North Of Septima), or Uptown, is on track to become the new Cannonborough-Elliottborough and encompasses Westside, Northside, Hampton Park and Waggoner Terrace neighborhoods. This area is a mix of residential homes, boutique restaurants and small businesses but has a little more breathing room & more parking than the rest of downtown. This area is in a great centralized location on the peninsula where it sits 2 miles north of SNOB and 7 miles south of SNOP (Slightly North of the Peninsula- a.k.a. Park Circle). The Sumter house sits on an expansive lot in the Westside neighborhood and has plenty of room for a courtyard garden… and possibly a lap pool?
We are excited to have two new Park Circle homeowners settled into their new houses on Orr Street & Marigold Street just in time to celebrate Independence Day! Both of these houses have great outdoor spaces to entertain family & friends this holiday. Orr Street’s double French doors expands the kitchen into the large screened-in back porch. This is perfect for a 4th of July feast with family. Marigold Street’s large wrap around porch and expansive corner lot yard is great for fun, games & grilling out. Check out the rest of these houses in our Coastal Cottage portfolio.
Speaking of great outdoor spaces, check out the latest Charleston Home & Design Magazine’s Summer 2018 issue. This issue features numerous outdoor spaces including our family friendly elevated porch on page 170 (Also check out our newest Ad on page 50 & our 5-page spread “Fit For A Family” featuring our Luxury Custom Home on pages 86-90!) Our luxury custom home porch overlooks the large back yard and has pristine views of the tranquil maritime forest. It is a great space for the kids to run around enjoying sparklers, fireworks and corn-hole while we grill out a large 4th of July summer feast. Below are links to a few of our favorite 4th of July low-country recipes and we hope you will enjoy them too!
Head down to your local farmers market to see what’s fresh and in season- here is a guide to the South Carolina produce calendar. Some of our favorite produce in season right now are okra, tomatoes, peaches and, of course, watermelon. Along with the obligatory hamburgers and hot dogs (always a big hit!), we love the char on grilled okra, refreshing watermelon and a sweet peach treat.
Grilled okra is super simple to put together and makes for a great bite-sized appetizer.
Fresh watermelon and tomato salad is great to cool you off on a hot summer day. Adding some mint and feta to this salad is a must!
An alternative to hamburgers & hotdogs, this Carolina-Style Barbecue Chicken is also a crowd pleaser. A spoonful of local peach jam would be great on this!
Here is what to do with all of that left-over watermelon- watermelon granita! This is super refreshing, super easy to make and will save in your freezer for more hot summer days.
Whether you will be at the beach, in your back yard or relaxing on your porch, there are plenty of fun activities to do and plenty of good food to eat. We hope you enjoy your 4th of July!
Park Circle has made a huge comeback in the past few years with restorations, renovations and trendy new restaurants and breweries opening up. We have been building & renovating houses in the area for several years & could not be more excited to see the transformation in the community. Check out these articles “From Space Boots to Food Stalls” and “Slightly North of the Peninsula” from CHS Today to see the history, transformation & hot new restaurants in Park Circle!
“From Space Boots to Food Stalls” goes into the history and transformation of Garco Mill. The mill was the primary employer in the area and established neighborhoods throughout North Charleston for mill workers and their families. We have spent several years renovating these mill houses & modeling our Coastal Cottages to keep in line with the original style of this area while updating the plans for more modern living. The article boasts some cool facts linking the mill to the Apollo 11 moon mission as well as notes the redevelopment of the mill. The Park Circle mill will see a mix of restaurants, grocery & food stall options, office space as well as a green space that will be comparable to Workshop.
“Slightly North of the Peninsula” is a food, beverage and entertainment guide to North Charleston and takes you on an hour-by-hour tour of the area starting with breakfast at Evo Bakery (shout-out and check out the marsh front house we built for Evo’s chef & co-owner!). The article lists several cool new restaurants and breweries in the areas as well as noting various parks and green spaces which have great running trails. We’ve known this area had great potential & are excited to see families and businesses take root here.
Come take a ride around Park Circle and you will see the many projects we are involved in throughout this community. As you round the circle towards Ashby, you will see our team installing a wheelchair ramp for a close friend of the North Charleston Building Department. We are honored to be asked to be a part of this team.
A few streets off the circle you will find us finishing up our last Orr Street coastal cottage house. This Orr Street house will feature an open concept kitchen with white quartz countertops, Haze grey cabinets, grey handmade subway backsplash tile and stainless-steel appliances. Double French doors expands the kitchen into the screened-in back porch. We can’t wait for our homeowner to move in and enjoy the breezes!
Around the corner from Orr, you will find us finishing up our 2nd Marigold Street House. This house will have a wrap-around porch and a large 2nd floor loft. This house will have a refreshing white, grey & green color scheme throughout the house as well as a built-in surround sound speaker system.
A few streets over you will see the foundation starting to shape our two newest Park Circle houses that are currently on the market, 1115 Justice & 1113 Justice! These homes will feature open floor plans with 9’ ceilings that incorporates a smooth transition from the open concept living room and dining room to the oversized kitchen. In the kitchen you will find all of the elements that will make these homes stand out including an oversized island for entertaining, granite countertops, shaker style cabinets, stainless steel appliances and a tile backsplash. In addition, the first floors will have a choice of 3 styles of sand and finish hardwood floors to compliment the high-end kitchen finishes. The kitchens will also feature a stainless-steel range hood with a built-in microwave option and optional pendant lighting at the island. The master retreat features a fully tiled bathroom including the floor and walk-in shower with glass door, dual vanities with cultured marble counter tops, and walk-in closet. Other interior and exterior finishes include hardwood floors on the first floor, cement plank exterior siding, custom paint colors, upgraded lighting options, trim package, Energy efficient natural gas tankless hot water heater, Low E windows, recessed lighting and much more.

We had a great time Saturday showing our newest luxury custom build as part of the Charleston Home & Design Daniel Island Luxury Home Tour 2018. Thank you to everyone who came out & stopped by! In case you didn’t grab a design guide, we have uploaded one to our site. Below is a recap of the tour. Call, email or message us for more information regarding design details or new construction inquires. We would love to hear from you!
“Located in the heart of Daniel Island, this Modern Lowcountry Farmhouse features a 5br/5ba open concept floor plan with 6,375 sqft of indoor and outdoor living space. It is surrounded by seven live oaks that provide full privacy along the wooded backyard. A traditional standing seam metal roof with exposed rafter tails covers the spacious elevated floor plan that includes an art room, home office, playroom, vaulted formal dining room, and family drop zone. You will see shiplap, reclaimed barn wood, quartz, mosaic tiles, shiplap– yes, we said shiplap again- custom built-ins and a luxury mother-in-law suite.”
Delpino Custom Homes has been hard at work this winter finishing up several spectacular bathroom remodels just in time for spring! We will also be featured in the Charleston Home + Design Spring 2018 magazine as part of the Luxurious Looks Bathroom Guide, page 200 (you can also find us on page 41 & page 145). In addition to the Daniel Island custom bathroom featured, make sure to check out our modern, glamorous bathrooms we are finishing up just in time for April.
Our I’On bathrooms turned out sleek, chic and modern with a European twist. The custom-made, floating Calacatta Gold quartz vanity is the focal point of the master bathroom. The waterfall edged vanity is flanked by matching tiled walls, a large walk-in shower and a luxurious soaking tub. The matte black, wall mounted Delta plumbing fixtures give the bathroom a euro-modern feel, which extends into the 2nd & 3rd floor bathrooms. The 2nd & 3rd floor bathrooms are characterized by their modern tile patterns, sleek vessel sinks and unique floating wooden vanities. We love how each of these bathrooms turned out!
Our marsh front house in Hanahan has an amazing master bathroom (& walk-in closet)! The oversized shower features elongated subway tiles in a modern herringbone pattern that pairs well with the penny tile floor. Check out this amazing tile work! The expansive double vanity includes a make-up counter and tons of storage. The navy cabinets add a fun pop of color to the bathroom and complement the modern Kichler vanity lights. We know our pizza guru client (Evo Pizza!) is going to love it.
Step into the spa-like bathroom at our luxury custom home build on Daniel Island and you will automatically feel refreshed. The satin bronze Newport Brass plumbing fixtures glimmer against the Vitoria International honed Namib White marble vanity tops and compliment the soothing grey vanity cabinets. The Victoria & Albert soaking tub is framed by the king-size, Calacatta Oro tiled, walk-in master shower. One side of the master bathroom looks out over the live oaks in the backyard and the other side opens into a large walk-in closet complete with custom built-in shelves. The upstairs bathrooms have fun features including a wall-mounted, trough style wash sink for the boys and a palm frond wallpaper accented with champagne bronze fixtures and pink Rosemeade mirrors for the girls. Come see these bathrooms in person at the Charleston Home + Design Home Show Tour 2018 this April 28th! Tickets & information can be found on page 145 of the Charleston Home + Design Spring 2018 magazine or on their website.
The master suite 2nd floor addition in West Ashley’s Avondale neighborhood finished up earlier this year. The high-end porcelain and chrome plumbing fixtures highlight the Restoration Hardware dual vanity and the deep soaking tub. The marble soaking tub surround (perfect for soaps, candles and wine glasses!), marble vanity top, and marble shower shelf compliment the colorations found in the herringbone patterned floor tile. Check out our client’s rave review on our Houzz profile!
Our 1215 Marigold renovation came full circle last week when the original homeowners had a chance to walk through the final stage of the project. We uncovered a rich history of the house & the Park Circle community from the 3 sisters who grew up there. We loved showing them the house and hearing their heartfelt testimonial of how our work is really making a difference in the community. Check out the full video & story on YouTube and see the before & after pictures on our website. This is exactly why we love what we do! Stay tuned for another historic renovation project coming soon in downtown Charleston’s Westside neighborhood.
Now that the winter weather has warmed up, it’s time to start planning your next move, renovation or addition with Delpino Custom Homes! Get outside & come see our projects around town for inspiration for your next venture. You can find us at two separate locations on Daniel Island, three houses in Park Circle, in Hanahan, in I’On Mt. Pleasant and one Charleston single on the peninsula downtown.

Ring in the New Year with a bathroom renovation! We spent the last few months of 2017 sourcing from local vendors to update our design center and to prepare for our January projects. We are seeing more gold & brass option for lighting & plumbing, more graphic & mosaic tiles, and more modern shapes for tubs & sinks. Our custom curated design center helps our homeowners & customers make design selections, stay in-budget and stay in style with classic options and on-trend options.
We know it can be daunting for homeowners to sift through all the options for countertops, tile, lighting and plumbing. Our design center streamlines that process narrowing the options down to fit individual styles and budgets. We have great connections with our local vendors and are able to work with them to cultivate a custom style for each of our projects. The curated collection can be found trending through-out Houzz, Pinterest and Instagram. We use all three of these platforms to communicate with our homeowners during the design process so make sure to follow us there. This process of communication streamlines ideas & helps ensure our vision is what our homeowners are dreaming of for their project.
Thinking of giving your bathroom a facelift? Tile can make or break a bathroom and starting with our curated selections can help guide each project in the right direction. Slate tile, wood plank tile and subway tile are great classics that are versatile for every style, you can try subway in a herringbone pattern to elevate a space, or mix tile materials in mosaics or graphic patterns to make a statement for small bathrooms or powder rooms. We are starting to see floral elements with a modern twist in lighting where we see sleek stems and contemporary clusters. The statement tile & modern lighting pairs well with clean-lined soaking tubs & classic sinks. Follow our social media pages to get inspiration and design tips for your next project and give us a call!
While celebrating Thanksgiving with our family, we were able to reflect on this past year and we are so thankful for old & new friends, past & present projects and new homes & new lives. We have had an amazing time revitalizing homes in the Park Circle Neighborhood and we met so many great people along the way. We are thankful for our new friends at the Carolina Youth Development Center as well as new friends at several local businesses in the Park Circle Neighborhood. We are thankful for all of the new homeowners and are honored we were able to help them create new homes and become part of the Park Circle community. We are thankful for all of our local vendor and supplier relationships and the professionals that work with us to deliver our homes to our customers. We are thankful for our great team of carpenters and subcontractors who are the backbone of each project. We could not build homes without them! We are thankful for past project homeowners and their recommendations that lead to current and new projects for our company to be involved in. Last, but certainly not least, we are so thankful for the latest addition to the Delpino Family, baby Knox!!
