Johns Island SC tornado homeOn September 25, 2015, a Johns Island, SC community located on Sonny Boy Lane was awakened at 1:00 AM to the sound of emergency alerts on their cellphones and extremely high winds pounding against their homes. The next morning, the destruction was enormous. Most homes along Sonny Boy lane had several structural and water damage and one was totally destroyed. Our home, located across the street from a destroyed home and centered between severally damaged homes was found to have minimal damage. Besides a view broken (not shattered) high impact glass windows and missing siding, our EcoShell™ home withstood what it was designed to do. More Details and Photos

Beautiful Outdoor Porch from Amerisips award winning homeBuilding an Amerisips custom home is both an art and a science … building science. The home must appeal to its owners’ aesthetic side and provide them with the modern conveniences they want and need, but Amerisips’ designers and engineers must also take into account numbers that can be measured quantitatively, such as energy efficiency, indoor air quality and long-term durability.
