Breaking Ground

Sonia Thompson

Ask anyone who has ever been through a design and building process and they will tell you that breaking ground on a new construction feels...well, ground breaking. After months of dreaming, planning, editing, envisioning, and emailing with architects and designers, the day a new home construction finally begins is thrilling.

Three lots at Splinter Creek -- Wildwood, Silent Shade, and Old Cedar Cove -- broke ground in the last two weeks, and now dirt is moving and foundations are going in. It's an exciting time for both the future residents and for the community. Follow along with us to watch us grow!

Oxford residents are breaking ground on 6-acre Wildwood. Their lot is situated next to a common area on the South Lake with west views and a boat launch. The dramatic topography and elegant home, designed by Jonathan Maddox of Howorth & Associates, take full advantage of the views of the water and sunsets.

A Memphis family is building on the 7-acre Silent Shade lot, which boasts a hardwood cove and dramatic overlooks of the North Lake. Working with Carlton Edwards Architects out of Memphis, the family members love to fish and look forward to enjoying their homesite's shoreline -- one of the longest on the North Lake.

A family from New Orleans is breaking ground on the 11-acre Old Cedar Cove lot, one of the most private residences on the property. Also working with Carlton Edwards Architects, they are looking forward to their sweeping views from their modern home perched high above the lake.
