Chris Hicks, Coastline Designs’ principle designer, was born and raised in Garden City, SC. Being the son of a self-employed contractor, Chirs has been exposed to construction since, well his whole life. His father was a commercial roofing contractor with an excellent reputation throughout the Myrtle Beach area from the late 70’s to the early 90’s. Chris’s hands-on education came from parental ethics lessons, Socastee High School, Horry Georgetown Tech, and Coastal Carolina. Hard work and continuous learning were taught to be expected behaviors. Honesty, dependability were also taught but his level of dedication to the profession, business, and family comes from a desire for more inner gratification gained when designing, building, repairing, remodeling, or improving homes or businesses to the best of his mental and physical ability!
