Building on Edisto

Living and working on Edisto Beach and Edisto Island provides motivation to build homes that fit into the environment, reflect our gracious pace of life, and mirror our southern heritage.

About Our Company

Fisher Walter and his father began building homes on Edisto in 1985. Fisher has
been here ever since. Never one to want to build cookie cutter homes, Fisher
has sought out challenging custom projects helping clients achieve their vision of what a low country home should be.

Since the beginning, Walter Construction has built well over 100 homes ranging from smaller weekend get a ways to luxurious retirement homes with fantastic detail work. Many of the original crafts people still work with Fisher today. He believes that building a quality home depends upon the skills of the people who work with him.

Fisher's customers say it best...

Working with Fisher on our dream home was like working with a brother. Fisher’s pride in his craft and quality workmanship are obvious when you walk into our home, but what you don’t see is his dedication to HOW we wanted to live.

Fisher incorporated our love of the lowcountry and how we live on Edisto: big dinners together, a comfortable place for a board game, a welcoming porch to sip a cocktail and room for a fall oyster roast.

Fisher Walter has built us a home for generations of McDowells.

Building our new home from several hundred miles away, Sue and I were more than a little anxious that we wouldn’t be able to supervise how the work went. We shouldn’t have worried. Fisher Walter and his outstanding crew not only gave us invaluable help in planning and design, intuitively understanding just what we wanted, but we also quickly came to trust the judgements and adaptations they made during construction.

A year after completion, we still find ourselves caught up in appreciation for little things (some big ones too) done that add to the delight we take in our house.

We have used many different contractors in our life, but we have never before found one as knowledgeable, competent, professional, helpful and friendly as Fisher and the other folks at Walter Construction Co.
