Brays 2 Home Build

Brays 2 Home Build Location   53 Vineyard Point Rd, St. Helena Island, SC 29920

The support for this project has been overwhelming with over 101 Brays Island contributors committing to participating.  LowCountry Habitat must raise 60% of the funding for a home before building may start which comes to about $75,000.  Thanks to the generous contributions from Brays Island, this goal was exceeded !  Typically, it takes Habitat one to two years to fully fund a home.  Brays Island came together to fund this home in record time just under two months!  What a phenomenal accomplishment for Brays Island.

Meet the Simmons Family. 

The Simmons Family: Denise Simmons and her daughter Jamie.

They will become the homeowners of the Brays 2 Home.

We are excited to announce that this home is fully funded.  We are so grateful for the support of the Brays Island Community.


Additional supporters of this build include Brays Island,  The Beaufort Charities,  Coastal Community Foundation, Hargray Caring Coins and United Way of the Lowcountry.


In kind supporters include Coastal Appraisal, Eat Stay Play Beaufort, JHN- Residential Building Design, Mussell-Built Structural Engineering, Pepsi and PickleJuice Productions.


With the ease of some of the Governor’s stay at home directives, we are working on a phased  reopening plan, for all LowCountry Habitat operations. Safety protocols, including social distancing, face coverings, sanitizing of tools and equipment and  providing hand washing facilities have been put in place.

Construction activities resumed on Tuesday, May 26 and by June 6th, the walls were raised! Follow our progress on our construction update posts. More to come!
