Beaufort, SC (2019).
Renovation of an existing concrete masonry building with a new wood-framed porch. Located on Bay Street in Historic Beaufort, SC this is a popular restaurant for ‘treehuggers and granolas” (like myself) who enjoy organic and natural foods. The wood framing is exposed and provides a warm aesthetic to contrast ‘cold’ blocks. Working closely with the architect is imperative on exposed wood framing to ensure bolting and strapping satisfy look and feel expectations of architect and customer, while still meeting high wind load requirements here in Beaufort.
