Last Nights Storms Leave Little Damage in Big Canoe

While the thunder and lightening kept many Big Canoe residents awake, there was minimal damage to the community during the storms of last night. Most home damage was from water intrusion during the torrential rains.  As usual, the maintenance personell at Big Canoe quickly cleared downed trees from roads.  Unfortunately, the western part of Pickens County was not so fortunate as many homes suffered wind and water damage. Our thoughts are with people who were impacted by the storms.

Just another sign consumer confidence is back

I just read yet  another article that supports my thought that consumer confidence along with the housing market is improving. Residential architects are reporting that home owners are opting for larger kitchens and bathrooms, and in some cases,  want even more than one kitchen as in the “guest kitchens” on the terrace level of so many Big Canoe homes. Gone is the austerity of the past two years when people were willing to settle for smaller kitchens and bathrooms. Bigger is better and it is back in a big way.
