We feel it is incredibly important to take a moment to update you during the coronavirus outbreak and how the quarantine is impacting custom home builders and their clients. We are in this together and we will get through it together as we look out for each other and our community.

At Blythe Building Company, we take everyone’s health seriously. This is why we are committed to implementing the latest CDC and OSHA guidelines for our industry.

According to South Carolina’s governor, Henry McMaster, construction is classified as an essential service—along with real estate, and other areas involved in the housing market. We are humbled and honored to be able to continue to meet your custom home building needs during this time in Lexington, SC and around the greater Columbia, SC area.

Here are some of the ways we will seek to protect you and your family during the shelter in place order while we take you through the home building process:
