Alperin Home Remodel

The moment this sign goes up in a yard, exciting things are underway — transformation from outdated or small to wow is about to get going. It also means that our team has spent many hours preparing for this moment: consults with the architect, visits to the permitting office, and many, many decisions about this door or that, PVC windows or wood, this wall here or here.

Making Your Vision Reality, Part 2

Every project begins with a big idea. The King family didn’t just want more space, they wanted more views, more light. They didn’t want to have to head out on to the deck to enjoy the sun sparkling on the lake, they wanted to bring those views right into their living room. Working alongside Steven Giampetro, we got to work making the King’s vision become their new reality.

Roswell Remodel: The Great Room

After a project is finished, and move in-date is scheduled, sometimes our homeowners like to live in their space before they finalize their decorating and let their remodeled areas breathe, so to speak. Often, they are gracious to let us back in, well after the project is completed, to let us photograph their spaces — living, breathing, and come to life — their vision made into REALITY.

Historical Fireplace

Our owners, Ben & Stephanie, recently finished their custom new home in Cumming, GA, and if you followed their journey, you'll know they started with inspiration in the form of the beautiful stone cottage in Transylvania County, NC. They even had the opportunity to tour the interior of the home, thanks to the gracious homeowners. One of the interior features that Ben knew he wanted to bring to their Cumming, GA home was the three piece stone fireplace.

Farmhouse Revival

The essence of farmhouse design is more than just artsy throw pillows and or rustic signs with painted farm animals hung on the walls. A true farmhouse design is much more focused on connections -- connecting the true heart of the home, the kitchen, more intimately with the living areas, and making it not just beautiful, but highly functional and comfortable.

Roswell Remodel, Part 2

Work on the interiors is steadily transforming the Kray house into a modern home with an outstanding view. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are getting a completely new look and new layout. The wall separating the dining room and kitchen was demolished, and the two rooms will switch spots in the floor plan. The window which used to be in the old dining room was removed to provide more wall space for cabinets, but more light is brought into the new great room with a large picture window and 10' sliding glass door from Pella onto their wraparound deck facing the golf course.

Roswell Remodel

Tucked away in wooded golf-course lot, a 1980's home boasted gorgeous views, but an exterior and interior that needed more than a facelift. Our whole home remodeling team, working alongside architect Steven T. Giampetro, moved, removed and added walls on the first floor as part of a redesign of the master bath, office, kitchen, and living room. The upstairs and basement are both getting updated, with the upstairs bath being completely remade for plumbing stubs up to tile!

The Making of a House

Building a home is both a science and an art. It requires faith and hard work. No wonder the process is frequently used as a metaphor for life, and sometimes we use life as a metaphor for building a home.  "The making of a house is a strange blend of dreams and mundane work, of heaven and earth" is the way that Paul Goldberger, the architectural critic for the New York Times described it. The dreams, the inspiration and the exacting, careful, back-breaking labor come together in such a tangible way.

Decisions that Impact

When embarking upon any project, remodel or design & build, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer number of decisions to be made. The list of decisions marches through the homeowner's mind. What kind of windows should I choose?  What kind of handles do I want on this sink? What kind of shutter dogs should I choose? How about the style of siding?

A Better Backyard

In the Atlanta-area this week, summer paid a visit. The warm air brought visions of poolside siestas, lake breezes, and ice cold margaritas on the deck. Or maybe you got a whiff of baking concrete, the feeling you need another shower by the time you arrive at work, or the listless feeling of laying on your couch waiting for your struggling A/C to keep up with the Georgia heat. A common theme emerges.
