Open to Possibilities

Among the many ongoing projects Benjamin Andrew Construction has going this fall, this remodel of a 1930's home on the outskirts of Atlanta is dramatic. The home has been added on to once before, with a two story addition, but the current homeowners have a multi-phase project starting this fall to reorganize, refresh, and recycle parts of the original 1930's main floor. Phase One is focused on the central area of the home, which includes a secondary bedroom, laundry room, hall bath, study, and dining room. Through reorganization, and a small addition, they are going to add a full bath, while keeping all of the other rooms and functions. 

Planning this project has been its own project of sorts, with collaboration between the homeowners, architect, and Benjamin Andrew Construction. Determining how best to meet the overall needs of the family, respecting the original architecture, but improving the layout and spacing allotted to individual rooms took time and communication. At last, the planning was over, and demolition was able to get underway last month. Take a quick tour of the house and see how our homeowners opened up their home to new possibilities!


This first room is the study, where a closet wall was totally removed, the previous doorway closed off, and a new opening was made for barn doors. 


This wall had a portion of a half hallway removed. The squeezed in hall bath, with an entrance to the left, will be made into a powder room. 


The former entrance to the hall bath is now transformed into space for a laundry nook, conveniently located. 


This view shows the gallery opening into the dining room, which was the 1930's exterior wall, but a later kitchen, family room, and loft are now on the other side of the white door. 


This exterior wall was completely demolished, and a beautiful angled quadruple window was added to make the dining area a lovely light filled space. Check out the exposed brick!

This remodel is all about thoughtful use of current space - stay tuned for another post on how our team is refurbishing many of the original woodworking (flooring, trim, and doors) from this old Atlanta home!
