If you’re looking for an adrenaline-filled, pulse-pounding way to have fun all day, grab an axe and get your throw on at Lumber Jill’s! Axe throwing is the newest, most popular live entertainment game in the Lowcountry. It’s kind of like darts…but with axes! Axe throwing is great for a few hours of amusement, stress relief, team building, and even corporate events in West Ashley, SC. Whether you’re looking for a great way to celebrate the weekend or want a new idea for your company event, Lumber Jill’s has got you covered.
The Lumber Jill’s revolution began after co-owners Jill and Heath spent a date night with friends throwing axes in Charleston. After having so much fun, the entrepreneurial couple quickly realized they could create their own take on axe throwing. Soon after, Lumber Jill’s was born!
The name Lumber Jill’s isn’t just a play on our co-owner’s name – it involves a really interesting piece of history too. Across the pond, the Women’s Timber Corps “manned” the lumber yards in England while the men were serving in WWII. They affectionately became known as Lumberjills, Britain’s answer to Rosie the Riveter. Without these brave ladies, Lumber Jill’s wouldn’t exist. We would be remiss if we didn’t salute them for the example they set!
At the end of the day, we want to provide every one of our guests with an outstanding axe-throwing experience. So, grab your friends, co-workers, family, or favorite people and join us for an axe-throwing party you won’t soon forget.
Axes haven’t been this popular in America since “The Shining” hit theaters way back in 1980!
In cities all around the nation, axe-throwing facilities are popping up left and right as a fun, healthy way for people of all ages to congregate and enjoy a night of friendly competition and stress relief. In the last few years, the sport of axe throwing has exploded – so much so that the World Axe Throwing League was assembled in 2017 to coordinate international axe-throwing competitions. Since that time, many axe-throwing events have popped up on national TV stations like ESPN.
Perhaps the most popular reason folks love axe throwing in West Ashley is for stress relief. We’ve even heard some customers say it’s a cheaper form of therapy! In reality, axe tossing gives you a therapeutic release that is hard to replicate. A few hard throws with an axe and your body releases a flood of endorphins, which help increase your energy, improve your mood, and facilitate healthy blood flow. If you have pent-up anger, nothing feels better than chucking a heavy axe at a target. Hitting a bullseye is even better!
Since axe throwing is such an exhilarating activity, many people don’t realize that they are exercising their arms, legs, abs, pecs, and even back when they come to Lumber Jill’s. Like high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts, axe throwing works several muscle groups at once. These exercises strengthen your core and help define your muscles. When coupled with a healthy diet, regular axe-throwing activities can even help you shed a few pounds.
You might be surprised to hear that axe throwing is one of the most sought-after company event ideas in West Ashley, SC. Sure, your colleagues might think it’s a little weird to host a corporate meeting at an axe-throwing facility. But once your co-worker hits their target, they’ll quickly understand how much fun they can have. Perhaps more importantly, axe tossing is a safe, fun way to conduct trust exercises and build team morale overall.
When you get right down to it, axe throwing is good, clean, healthy fun. Axe throwing helps relieve shoulder tension, while laughing helps engage your body’s core. When you throw in an adult beverage or two, laughs become easier and fun flows more freely. You can’t help but have the time of your life at Lumber Jill’s in the Lowcountry.
Axe throwing isn’t reserved only for adults – kids can get in on the fun and excitement too. Our warm, inviting atmosphere inspires people to embrace their inner champion, even if they’re under 18. At Lumber Jill’s, we can accommodate kids ages 10 and up. Before we pass them an axe, we will evaluate their skill level to ensure their safety. Contact us today for more info on birthday celebrations and whole facility rentals.
Status quote, average, ordinary…these are qualities that no employer would want out of their employees. So, why host a team-building event at a venue with the same characteristics?
If you’re on the hunt for corporate event venues in West Ashley, SC, you just hit the jackpot. We may be a little biased, but Lumber Jill’s is a fantastic corporate event venue for companies looking to try something new.
Axe throwing for corporate events is fun, high-energy, and safe for all your employees. We’re talking an adrenaline-filled day with your own private axe-throwing lanes. Get your clients or your team out of the office and give them something to be excited about!
In addition to our standard reservations, we are happy to offer celebration, corporate, and full facility rental packages. Planning a surprise birthday party for your best friend? Celebrating a life event with that special someone? Looking for a spot for your family reunion? Axe throwing in West Ashley, SC is the perfect activity for your group! For the most memorable (or hazy) celebration, don’t forget to ask us about alcoholic beverage service and additional lane time.
Please note that our celebration package is designed for customers over the age of 12. Two adults must be present at all times.
We understand that axe throwing isn’t your typical date night or even guy’s night activity. We get it – you’re hurling real axes at a target that is only a few feet away. On the surface, that can sound a little scary. But don’t worry, many of our first-time guests have questions about how our process works too.
One of the best parts of owning Lumber Jill’s is our ability to give back to our local community. We are always on the hunt for new, inventive ways to serve our citizens. That’s why, once a month, we host Axe of Kindness night to shine a light on an important organization, charity, or good cause. These exciting events give our customers a compelling way to make a real difference in someone’s life.

When the pandemic quarantine period kept millions of people looking at the interior of their homes, renovations around the house that would normally be placed on the back burner finally had their moment in the sun.
More than a year later, renovations remain strong as lingering effects of the pandemic have popularized the work-from-home model, in addition to other reasons as to why Americans may find themselves with more time and funds to allocate to home-office upgrades.
Across the country, paint suppliers are struggling to keep up with increased demand as products fly off the shelves with more customers taking on residential and commercial projects, and South Carolina is not the exception.
Jimmy Brooks is the owner of the 360 Painting Columbia franchise, part of a national brand with 133 locations across 40 states and D.C.
For Brooks, a customer placing an order could mean a slew of follow-up phone calls to other stores to see if they have the specific paint in inventory.
“I can call my rep and say we need 30-40 gallons of paint, so she’ll get on the phone, and we’ll start looking around, but now I’ve got to drive from Columbia to Aiken or Rock Hill or Camden, or just go to four different stores just to round it up,” Brooks said. “Generally speaking, we can find the paint, it’s just a lot of time in order to get there.”
Brooks said prices have increased too. Since Sherwin Williams, partner of 360 Painting, has been charging a 15-20% uptick for materials, that same price raise had to be passed on to the customer, Brooks said.
Brooks said that hasn’t deterred patronage, though.
“The products have been harder to get recently, but since the pandemic, we’ve seen good business during that period of time,” he said.
Dave Rychley, president of 360 Painting, agrees that lead times in obtaining products have gone up. Whereas customers could’ve picked up product orders or had them delivered with a 24-hour turnaround in the past, it can now take up to two weeks as providers must more frequently contact other vendors to confirm stock when they themselves have run out, he said.
“It’s never been more critical in my time in paint, and what I mean by that is there’s a lot of problem-solving that our local sales reps are doing all over the country, and certainly in South Carolina to help ensure that our franchisees and our customers have all the product that they need,” Rychley said.
Rychley said the company is up 40% on client inquiry leads and paint estimates. This parallels national numbers as international industry market research company The Freedonia Group reports a 39% national spike in home renovation activity in 2020. Consumers surveyed credited these home improvement projects with changes associated with the pandemic.
Despite increased efforts to refill rapidly emptying store shelves, Rychley said 360 Painting is already fortunate to have a partnership and relationship with national brand Sherwin Williams. For smaller companies who don’t have this kind of support, it can be even more difficult to find the necessary products that customers are asking for or to even stock up for a little more than immediate demand.
For Waylon Cain, owner of West Ashley True Value in Charleston, his crew of eight employees are working hard to meet orders, for paint and for other hardware requests that come into the store as well.
“I spent four nights past midnight here (at the store),” Cain said, adding that as a small business “I can’t compete with the big buys with employees. I don’t have the night crew to do it for me.”
Because West Ashley True Value functions as an independent store, Cain said he buys from multiple vendors. While costs have gone up, he’s tried his best to keep prices low for his customers.
“We’re trying our best for finding smart ways to purchase,” Cain said. “Our goal is to keep the community. This is my neighborhood; I take care of it.”
Cain said he is learning as he goes about maintaining that balance in keeping customers happy and mitigating rising costs. Cain said he spends about $300-$500 a week at Lowe’s or Home Depot, which he said generates him little profit at the price that he charges, but at least he has that inventory on hand when it’s needed.
“Things are going up so much in cost that my previous retail price is below the actual cost of my product, and unfortunately, I’m finding out the hard way, but I’m trying my best,” Cain said. “Hopefully things will bounce back after people come back to work and we start putting value back in the dollar again.”

The new bike and pedestrian bridge planned over the Ashley River is one of the Charleston region’s most important infrastructure projects on the drawing board, and the city and county must ensure they’re doing all they can to keep the project on track.
That will be more challenging after recent news of its rising cost estimate due to pandemic-related supply, demand and labor problems — problems that likely will affect other capital projects breaking ground in coming years. Local leaders, working with their state and federal partners, must find a way to close the gap.
While permitting is going smoothly and the project is embraced by the local community, the city got the first hint of the cost challenge when only two companies submitted qualifications to design and build the stand-alone bridge, which will link West Ashley and downtown just south of the existing U.S. Highway 17 drawbridges. When other companies were asked why they passed up the opportunity, their leaders responded that they thought the project would cost more like $41 million, well above the $26.5 million project budget (and its original $22 million price tag).
Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg said he plans to meet soon with Federal Highway Administration officials, whose $18.1 million grant already represents the lion’s share of the project’s funding. We urge the feds to consider how they can close the financial gap.
But planners wisely aren’t counting on that strategy alone. Michael Darby, project manager with HDR, said reducing the bridge from 20 feet in width to 14 and reducing its causeways from 12 feet down to 10 feet would substantially lower the cost, as would using steel towers and cables instead of concrete.
Those alterations, while regrettable, would bring the cost down by about $9 million, closer to the $28 million to $32.8 million range. Without any further federal help, that would still leave about a $6 million gap. Mr. Tecklenburg noted that the bridge is in the city’s Horizon tax increment financing district, money from which could help close any gap. That’s a promising and suitable local source of added money, should it be needed. The city also should consider an unusual but possibly lucrative step: seeing if there’s interest from a donor for naming rights to the bridge.
While we would prefer a 20-foot-wide bridge — or even 18 feet or 16 feet — it’s important to note that planners say not only would 14 feet be sufficient, but that it would still be wider than other bike-ped routes, including the Arthur Ravenel Bridge’s path, which is only 12 feet wide. The Better North Bridge proposal is for a bridge 14 to 16 feet wide. A shared-use path over the Interstate 526 crossings also is pegged at 14 feet.
We urge the city, county and HDR to keep pressing ahead with permitting and design refinements to keep the project on track. The process already is slow enough: The best case has design work finishing next year and construction finishing in 2025.
These bike-ped bridges are a hugely important corrective to this region’s 20th century highway network that addressed only cars and trucks. They not only provide safe crossings for cyclists and pedestrians but also will help reduce the region’s carbon footprint and connect the city’s largest residential district (West Ashley) with its largest job center (downtown).
Keeping within the budget always looms as a critical challenge on a big project, and it’s clear now that this challenge will loom even larger with the Ashley River bike-ped bridge due to market uncertainties left in the wake of COVID-19. The extended pandemic already has taken enough from all of us; it must not take this project as well.

Trion Properties, a private equity real estate firm based in West Hollywood, California and Miami, Florida specializing in multifamily investments, has expanded its Southeast presence with the acquisition of Latitude at West Ashley, a 312-unit multifamily community in Charleston, South Carolina for $51.8 million.
The firm entered the Southeast market in September with the acquisition of Crescent Commons, a 288-unit multifamily community in Fayetteville, North Carolina, followed by the purchase of Patterson Court, a 384-unit luxury multifamily community in Orlando, Florida, in November. This continued growth within the region speaks to the firm’s strong reputation and ability to rapidly expand into new markets based on strong relationships and a deep understanding of the multifamily investment market and trends, according to Max Sharkansky, Managing Partner at Trion Properties.
“Charleston is a lucrative market that we have been actively looking to expand into as we continue to strategically acquire properties in areas that have proven resiliency and are experiencing population and employment growth,” says Sharkansky. “Latitude is an ideal asset as it’s situated on the east side of the West Ashley submarket, which is less than 10 minutes from downtown Charleston and the Charleston airport, the two largest employment centers in the area. These strong employment fundamentals are met with a growing population that will help generate long term renter demand for the property.”
Marley Dominguez, Director of Acquisitions at Trion Properties, adds: “The Charleston region’s population is increasing three times faster than the U.S. average, boasting 33 new residents each day. A growing list of major corporations and industrial tenants have opened facilities in the area, lured by tax incentives and quick access to the expanding Port of Charleston.”
Trion recognized Latitude as especially well positioned to benefit from the increase in population and employment based on the limited supply of quality housing in the area. In the last 12 months, no new supply has come to market and no large-scale projects are currently under way that will be able to deliver competing new units in the next five years. The lack of incoming supply will allow the property to benefit from organic upwards pressure on rents that will be enhanced through the implementation of the firm’s best-in-class renovation program, Dominguez notes.
“This acquisition will allow us to create significant value through executing our proven renovation and operations strategies,” says Dominguez. “Current ownership has focused primarily on curing deferred maintenance, minor exterior renovations, and minimal interior upgrades. There are notable opportunities to improve landscaping, paint the dated exterior, and create additional amenities such as a dog park, playground, and additional BBQ areas. These additions will significantly improve quality of life for residents and strengthen investor returns.”
Constructed in two phases in 1968 and 1973, Latitude at West Ashley consists of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units averaging 954-square feet. Approximately half of the units are townhome style. The community is comprised of 22 two-story wood-framed buildings, as well as a pool deck with BBQ grills and cabanas, fitness center, and on-site laundry facilities.
Latitude at West Ashley is bordered by the Ashley and Stono Rivers, creating the breathtaking scenery for which Charleston is known. Situated seven miles due west of Downtown Charleston, residents are a quick drive to all downtown has to offer. Nearby Interstate 526, which feeds directly into Charleston’s Interstate Highway 26, gives residents a fast and easy route in and out of area. Community residents also enjoy close proximity to the area’s only indoor mall, the Citadel Mall, and a large number of big-box stores.
Latitude at West Ashley is located at 1735 Ashley Hall Rd, Charleston, SC 29407.
