Sneak Peek!

This house is incredible!

We are putting the finishing touches on the Factory Creek House, and we will show you more photos when it’s all sparkling clean and beautiful, but we could not resist sharing a sneak peak. The design (by Frederick and Frederick Architects), the incredible group of skilled craftsmen that contributed, and that VIEW make this house truly spectacular!

New Project!

We are so excited to get started on a new house! This site is one of the prettiest we have seen, with gorgeous trees and beautiful views. Montgomery Architecture and Planning designed a fabulous, contemporary retreat for the St. Helena Island site and we can’t wait to bring the architect’s vision to life. Stay tuned for progress!!


Factory Creek Progress

A few progress photos from our Factory Creek job, we are getting really close to completion and can’t wait to see the finishing touches coming together! Stay tuned for more!!

June Update

The Factory Creek job is progressing very nicely. Since the last update, we have continued to install interior and exterior trim, painting continues, masonry is completed, bath tile is installed. The coquina stone floor is so gorgeous, the picture really doesn’t do the material justice. Coral stone is being laid on the exterior. The interior stairs are being installed. We are getting closer to completion every day!



March Progress

Here are a few progress photos of the Factory Creek House. The exterior is coming together, it is beginning to look like the final product! Inside, the drywall is hung and interior trim and flooring is beginning. This house is going to be so gorgeous! It’s all centered on that incredible view!



We can’t wait to show you this cool, contemporary home in Berkeley Hall. I thought I’d give you a sneak peak of this beautiful custom walnut bar, made by Buzzy Bosworth. The precision in his joinery is unreal. The waterfall edge of the countertop looks perfect.

Allan Howell has been building houses all his life, and 2017 was the year to build a website that was up to par with his work. Welcome to the new website. This is the space where we will be sharing photos and information about projects that are underway. We hope you will enjoy, and check back often to see the progress.



This home on Factory Creek is progressing nicely. Currently, the siding is being installed, the painters are prepping to paint the exterior, the fireplace is almost finished and rough-ins are underway.

Every detail makes a home uniquely beautiful

Howell Builders - Custom Builders Charleston, Hilton Head, Kiawah, Beaufort

Crafting a house, and not just assembling one, takes time and scrupulous attention to every specification. It means limiting projects to just two or three a year in order to listen to each client and shape the sort of house that will continue to satisfy over a lifetime. It means building a mutual bond of pride and responsibility.

Howell Builders is ready to serve people who share its respect for craftsmanship and its belief that faithfulness in every detail makes a home uniquely beautiful and truly livable.
