Cara Porter

Position: Estimator

I graduated in the Spring of 2011 from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC where I studied Construction Management. I had an amazing opportunity to study abroad in the Netherlands where I studied ‘Sustainability in Construction.’  I am able to implement many of the building principles that I learned studying abroad into our Structures homes, such as using materials to increase the life of our homes while meeting the client’s current needs as well as the future generations’ needs. While in college, I quickly realized residential construction was my passion. I enjoy seeing each and every home we build come to embody the common saying ‘there is no place like home’. It brings me joy to see clients truly love their new Structures custom home and transform it into their own personal sanctuary throughout the designing and building process.

I have always loved and excelled in math and have a keen eye for detail. As an estimator with Structures, I am able to use my abilities to accurately price all aspects of every home, no matter how simple or complex. Estimating with Structures is not just a job to me, it is an exciting opportunity to create each and every client’s dream home, and I am happy to be part of their experience. I have known since a young age that Charleston, SC is where I wanted to move after finishing school. I am so blessed and thankful for the amazing opportunity to be part of the magnificent Structures family, live in such a gorgeous city, and use my passion for residential construction to build beautiful custom homes.
