“They remember how, along with their parents and grandparents, they took shelter in the house that was ideally placed, above flooding levels. And, they tell stories about the eating, drinking and singing, “… having a grand time until the hurricane had passed,” Chris Stone, Hutchinson House Project Manager who works for Artis Construction, said.
The company specializes in renovation and restoration of historic buildings. In this role he has been leading a team on a three-phase plan to restore the 1886 home, the oldest on Edisto Island, to its 1905 prime.
Largely funded by the Edisto Island Land Trust, the goal is to have the home established as a visitor attraction. Work has been partitioned into phases that progress with the success of fundraising. Not only are the project renovation leads Artis founder Guyton Ash and Chris American College of Building Arts (ACBA) graduates, but the construction crew are all ACBA students.
“It’s such a great way to train students in a real-life project that’s enhancing this community,” Chris said.
