The Powell Group, a custom home builder located in Morganton, North Carolina came to MESH Design Group wanting their website updated and expanded to provide more functionality for themselves and their clients. We delivered a clean website design that visually illustrates the quality of the beautiful homes they build combined with expanded content and built on a Content Management System (CMS) so they can manage all aspect of the website in-house.

The main section of the home page features a large slideshow that allows the company to showcase their work. The lower section allows for introductory copy, a random testimonial from one of their satisfied clients, and a few headlines from their recent news section.

The interior of the site uses a mix of full width and two column (main content with sidebar) layouts. The sidebar is used to feature random testimonials and cross navigation links to recent news and photo galleries.

When looking at the front end of this website, you would never know it is built on top of WordPress. We take great pride in providing completely custom website designs that uniquely reflect each client’s business, yet built on a system that allows for easy maintenance by the client. This approach allows our clients to manage their own website content as desired, yet have a great looking site that does not have a cookie-cutter template look and feel.

The design of this website also makes use of “responsive design,” so it displays well on desktop and laptop computers, tablets, and mobile phones. Responsive design is the design method recommended by Google to achieve the best search engine indexing because it uses one set of HTML files for content and CSS media queries to alter the display of the information depending on the size of the user’s viewport (screen size).
