We are very pleased to announce Saussy Burbank was the recipient of three honors from the ASID Carolinas 2018 Design Awards. Saussy Burbank, along with interior designer Susan Hill, won two second place awards in the Model Home Category for our Summerville, SC model homes at Nexton and Summers Corner, and a first place award for our beautiful New Home Design Center in Charlotte.
