“Group 3 was sensitive to our budget while being extraordinarily creative in planning and design. We worked so well together-we recommend them to everyone”.
~Lynne & Bert E.
“Group 3 took a typical older style Hilton Head house and transformed it in a very cost effective manner. It now is up to date-in and out-without changing the charm we loved about the property!
~Howard & Carolyn S.
“We hired Group 3 for their interior design talent when we were under way with construction. They coordinated all our existing furniture and memorabilia into this house to make it feel like home. Mike and his team were a pleasure to work with.”
~Ann & Kurt G.
“You listened to every word we said, and your first draft of the design made us shiver, because it documented perfectly what we described. The final blueprints for the house really were not that different from the first pass. From day one, you said it was our house, not yours. It ended up being the best of both worlds. you incorporated our wants, but you designed it with your flair for detail. We walk around the house in awe, no believing it is really ours.”
~Laura & Peter O.
“I found great satisfaction working side by side with you as we chose hardware, light fixtures, etc etc. I have praised you many times saying what a good listener you are and how well you interpret the clients wishes.”
“Rick Clanton took us to see several of his projects and showed us examples of the advantage of having an experienced architect( for example: he showed us flaws that could occur when changes were made by someone other than the architect -- design and material). Our house was being built using old lumber and bricks from family houses and barns; his patience in listening to us has made this house a place that is warm and welcoming( that is according to people who have visited!). We spent about a year with the architect before beginning construction; the house was completed 2 1/2 years after that so Group 3 was part of our lives for 3 1/2 years.”
“Group 3 was our architect in renovating a 30+ year old second home. They did an excellent job in updating the home and meeting our objectives. We added windows to enhance the view and add light, walls were removed and the kitchen and four bathrooms were redone. The deck was reconfigured and a screened porch and powder room were added. They also recommended an excellent contractor and were very helpful in assisting with our finishes. We highly recommend this architect.”
“We hired Group 3 to design our dream beach house in Hilton Head from start to finish. After listening to what we wanted in our house, Mike put out plans that were beyond our expectations. Every piece of trim and finish details were specified, so that nothing was left to chance. Mike and Tara worked with us at every step in picking out every piece of tile, flooring, furniture, colors, accessories, etc. making sure that all of our choices fit into the cohesive look and feel of our house and were in line with the vision we had created. They also provided full supervision of the construction process which was critical for us as we were building from a distance. I highly recommend Group 3. They were amazing to work with in all aspects of the design process. My house came out better than I could have ever imagined.”
“We asked Group 3 to completely remodel our three bedroom home, while we added two bedrooms and two baths. We were very pleased with their design concepts and made very few changes to their original ideas. From a few pre-design discussions, Group 3 understood exactly what we wanted. They took advantage of the rear view of our home and increased the efficiency of our existing space. Upon conclusion of our reconstruction, we used Group 3 for our finished interior decoration and, again, we were very pleased with the extra touches they incorporated. We would use Group 3 again for any architectural and/or interior design work.”

“Artistic Experience. We have just finished building our first custom home and it has been a wonderful experience! We felt that our requests were listened to and were done in way that were above and beyond our expectations. Our architect is truly an artist and goes above and beyond what we could have ever asked for....we could see it in his passion about our house. We are thankful that we found Rick Clanton. YES,YES,YES...we would recommended him to anybody and we have.”
