June 1, 2021 – The 55th annual Carolina Classic Home and Garden Show took place at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds May 21 – 23, 2021.   This is the biggest and only locally-produced home show in the Midlands with all proceeds staying in Columbia to help the association work to keep housing affordable.   From home builders to home remodeling, improvements, design, and more, this year, there were over 100 Home & Garden exhibitors serving as the public’s three-day one-stop-shop for anything and everything home-related.

Presented by the Building Industry Association of Central South Carolina, Hurricane Builders was very proud to accept the 2021 Innovation Award in the “Best Green Building Product” category for its initiative to begin installing Electric Vehicle (EV) charging ports into all garages – standard.

We believe in supporting the community all while providing our homeowners the best value possible,” says CEO Greg Howell.  “We are dialed into the future of homebuilding and we were thrilled to unveil EV-ready garages; a feature that will come standard with every Hurricane Builders home“.

Why EV charging ports, you ask?  There are several vehicular manufacturers who intend to be fully electric by the end of the decade, starting with the transition to produce hybrid-only models.   Lamborghini, for example, now has an electrification plan in action in efforts to continue reducing the negative environmental impacts caused by motor fuel.  Automobili Lamborghini’s President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann said in a statement released by CNBC, “Our response is a plan with a 360-degree approach, encompassing our products, taking us towards a more sustainable future while always remaining faithful to our DNA.”

Since its founding, each Hurricane Builders home has been built with uncompromising quality and innovative design with energy efficient materials and features that provide ultimate comfort at lower operating costs.   Using environmentally friendly building materials and suppliers that embrace sustainability and conservation, their EnergySmart features allow them to stay “ahead of the curve” in technology, quality, and affordability.   The implementation of EV-ready garages is a reinforcement of Hurricane Builders commitment to keep building homes ahead of the curve.
