Since his earliest days at the College of Charleston, Sean has had an interest in historic properties of all types. Later while still in Charleston, Sean developed a program and scope of work based upon a survey from the parishioners of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Lynchburg, VA. In order to convert the 18th century hand-drawn plans onto AutoCAD, which were used by the lead architect to develop conceptual designs. The plans were instrumental in the design of an addition in working with the lead architect, under the ACHP section 106 guidelines. After obtaining his Masters of Architecture at Virginia Tech, Sean returned to Charleston to work on the creation of a set of records for a home built in the 1820’s. This assignment included information gained from researching the history of ownership through the Register Mesne Conveyance to find when the parcel was first sold and when the home was constructed.

Another interesting project was a 17th century home where he was engaged to organize and plan restoration work using an assessment by the structural engineer. This included researching historical records to determine ownership and the evolving expansion of the building through analysis of archived tax records and historical fire maps. Sean coordinated with architects in charge of restoration to create drawings depicting the evolution of the home in four stages. Sean was ultimately tasked with planning the order and schedule of subcontractors to maximize the quality and efficiency of work performed.
