Its weathered wooden shingles and beautiful stonework exude a warm, inviting tone. Creating a house such as this one, with its exacting lines and scale, requires a masterful custom builder. Gus Rubio, owner and president of Gabriel Builders, located in Travelers Rest, S.C. at The Village of Mountain Park, accomplishes this feat in deft style.
