K B Sunspaces, owned by Earl and Kathy Beaman, opened in 2014 in Murrells Inlet. Since that time, they've doubled in growth every year, which enabled them to purchase the building at their present location at 11768 Highway 17 Bypass (Frontage Road), seven buildings south of their old location, quadrupling their space.
Initially, they started selling vertical 4 track windows, then expanded to screen, vinyl and glass rooms. Upon purchase of their new building, they were able to add furniture and firepit lines, as well as retractable screens, shades and awnings, pergolas, outdoor kitchens – anything to do with outdoor living - or simply what Kathy calls “The Lowcountry Lifestyle.” Upon customer request, window replacement, with either insulated or impact windows, and hurricane protection, have been the latest additions to their product offerings.
Unlike on-line sites, one can see and feel the quality and comfort and choose fabrics and finishes by visiting the gorgeous showroom. There you will find samples of all the different rooms they can build, the options available and the furnishings you can fill it with. K B Sunspaces includes “white glove” delivery of their furniture and firepits, which is set up in your space, not left at the end of your driveway! Kathy is proud of the fact that almost 100% of the products are made in the USA – an important consideration when choosing her lines.
When Kathy started K B Sunspaces, she went to her first Home Show with a single Vertical 4 Track Window in a wood stand that her husband had made the night before. Flash forward to their last home show, where they had four completely furnished and functioning booths, resulting in solid appointments and sales for months afterwards. To add to their versatility, K B Sunspaces does not limit themselves to a single brand of product – they carry several lines of each product, allowing them the flexibility to choose the correct product for the correct application, for the best value. “That's only fair to our customers”, Kathy explains.
Kathy's past specialties from her construction background include certifications in kitchen and bath design, aging in place and green building. She used this knowledge to help her design the homes she and husband Earl built before he semi-retired. Nowadays, with the utilization of her Integrated Design, she's using her talents to design the sunrooms, patio spaces and outdoor kitchens she now sells. For example, she will design an entire “hardscape” plan for your home, starting with the concrete or pavers and ending with the furniture – and everything in between. Customers can do it in stages and K B Sunspaces can handle all of it for you – from HOA application through final permitting and follow up, including concrete, electrical, flooring, everything needed.
One major key to their success is that K B Sunspaces has assembled an awesome team of professionals – from sales to installation to finish. They are all extremely dedicated and knowledgeable and are the reason for their tremendous success. Kathy says, “As with most things, it's the people and the product. My entire team is dedicated to the same thing – to offer and install the best product on the market in the best way they can and to make the customer happy they chose K B Sunspaces. We truly and sincerely appreciate their trust in us.”
