Our 2017 Southern Living Idea House is Open to the Public!

Our 2017 Southern Living Idea House is Open to the Public!

  It’s been quite a whirlwind of activity since the 2017 Southern Living Idea House on Bald Head Island opened to the public June 16! In a short 6 months the house went from an Eric Moser design on paper (well, CAD), to a fully built and furnished island home.  To say this was a record time for us to build a home is an understatement – given the home is on Bald Head Island with its own share of logistical challenges!  This was also record time for any home constructed on the island. For the home to come together it truly took a village – all of our amazingly supportive and loyal employees, trades, vendors and suppliers that worked under an impossible timeline:  working nights, weekends, 7 days a week to meet the deadline.  We are forever grateful for everyone that supported/contributed to the build of this home. Now that it is open, make your plans to attend!  Tickets can be purchased...

2017 Southern Living Idea House on Bald Head Island Grand Opening June 16, 2017!!!

We are one month from the 2017 Southern Living Idea House Grand Opening on Bald Head Island!  The home will open to the public with a ribbon cutting at 10am on Friday, June 16.  Hours for the home will be 10am-4pm Wednesdays – Saturdays, and 12noon-4pm Sundays thru September 3, then open weekends only thru October 29.  Many special events are being planned for the home so be sure to follow us on Facebook for the latest happenings and events at the Southern Living Idea House, located at 204 Whale Head Way. It has been a very short 6 months since we began construction mid-December of 2016.  Less than cooperative weather, along with a barge breakdown, has made us question if we would actually make the planned grand opening  date, but we are well on our way to welcoming everyone to the home on Friday, June 16! Make your plans to visit Bald Head Island, for the day, weekend, or week and tour this lovely home designed by Eric Moser, with interior design and furnishings by Lindsey Coral Harper.  Many surprises and amazing design ideas...
