As a spring gift, two annual tours of homes in the South Carolina and Georgia coastal lowcountry are on tap in April and May.
I had the honor of judging some of the spectacular new homes for the 2008 Greater Savannah Parade of Homes featuring homes in Georgia's Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty Counties. The Parade of Homes is open to the public on April 26-27 and May 3-4. You are in for a treat. More information can be found at http://www.savannahparade.com.
On April 27, 2008 from 1 to 5 pm, just up the road in South Carolina, Bluffton Self Help will host its annual Greater Bluffton Tour of Homes. This tour will feature homes, some of which will be seen for the first time by the public, in Belfair Plantation, Palmetto Bluff and along the May River.
Bluffton Self Help's mission is "to help those individuals and families in the greater Bluffton area who are in a crisis situation and are in need of short-term emergency assistance." More information can be found at http://www.blufftonselfhelp.org.
