Two Disciplines. One firm. Superior Value.
You have always wanted to live in a place like Lake Kewoee, SC, nestled in the foothills of the Blueridge mountains, adorned with the brilliant colors of fall and surrounded by the active lifestyle of summers on the lake with family and friends. You value communities that preserve the natural surroundings, and showcase the very best in home design and construction. You want a simpler lifestyle, but without compromising modern conveniences and quality living spaces.

But, in order to live or recreate here, you need the perfect home and professionals to help you in designing and building the retreat, lake estate, or cottage home you desire. Right?

This is exactly why ARCON is in the business of providing both ARChitecture and CONstruction services for luxury custom homes on Lake Keowee!


Every project has different functional needs, aesthetic goals, and budgets. Successful projects balance these competing priorities, and offer the most “value” in a sensitive balance custom designed for your individual needs. This critical balancing act is only achieved with a "builder’s conscience" during design, and an "architect’s vision" during construction.

At ARCON, this is our strength as we are founded by registered architect and licensed builder, Ron Welch, and his unique vision to integrate both professions into one seamless delivery system where the clients needs and goals guide the project from beginning to end.
From conceptual design to completed custom home construction, ARCON offers a full range of architectural and construction services.
