Building on a Dream

Twice Charmed: Morgan-Keefe Builders is dedicated to exceeding expectations. Which explains why Morgan-Keefe’s clients invariably say they would “do it all over again” and often maintain long-standing friendships with the Carolina mountain builder. While homeowners consistently enjoy the process of building their custom homes with Morgan-Keefe, not many have the occasion to do so twice. For one Lake Keowee couple, the prospect of welcoming their first grandchild provided the perfect opportunity.

 “When we started thinking about building our addition, there was never any question that we would use Malcolm and Morgan-Keefe again,” the homeowners share. “Malcolm and his team are tops in class.” 

A Lakehouse Transformed: A dramatic makeover infuses a waterfront dream home with old-world elegance. The announcement of an impending grandchild accelerated the redo of a ten-year-old dream home at Lake Keowee. Although the house’s owners say they were “still in love with the rustic interior,” the exterior needed a little 21st-century panache. “It didn’t quite match the spirit of the location, or create the ambiance we wanted when we drive up to the house.”

Plans were made to create a second-floor guest suite over the garage and to re-work the exterior of the home in a fresh new style. The renovation by Morgan-Keefe Builders of Arden — who also built the original home — took more than a year. But the homeowners say they are “extraordinarily pleased” with the result. “Both the look and feel of the house is great…just what we wanted.”
