Southern Living Home Summit

Buchanan Construction has been invited to represent Southern Living as Western North Carolina’s Custom Builder!  We are honored to be part of this Elite Group and look forward to our new partnership!

We recently attended the Southern Living Home Summit Conference in New Orleans and Wow! What an Event it was!  Our conference started with a live New Orleans Band opening the floor and stage with the song “When the Saints go Marching In” and it was fantastic!  Opening Band (click here) 

Spirits were high with a multitude of smiles from the welcoming live jazzy band!  We enjoyed speaker Sid Evans, Editor of Southern & Coastal Living Magazines, and great panels of Designers & Builders discussing trends that are popular Now  or  Forever.  We had so much fun participating and raising our paddles!


Southern Living is proud to partner with Operation Finally Home, a national non-profit that builds custom, mortgage free homes for wounded veterans, as well as widows of the fallen.  Award Ceremony picture below.

Southern Living House Plans are a popular choice in the South East and are featured in Southern Living Magazines.
