1950's Remodel


Long before HGTV or Discovery channel became interested in the drama of renovation, the remodeling profession has been painting, adding, sanding, refinishing, and removing. At the heart of a remodel is the desire to preserve and renew. It also requires a vision -- the ability to see past the outdated, dark, or too small. Thom saw such a vision when he walked into the 1950's ranch home in Atlanta and thought, this is it! It wasn't everything that he wanted, though the home had been renovated since the 50's. He wanted to make the house into his home. In his own words, 

I recently purchased a 1950’s home that had undergone some renovations. There were other areas that I wanted to update to make my house into my home. I first contacted Benjamin Andrew Construction via their website after viewing their projects and reading reviews from pleased clients. I received a follow-up call that laid the foundation for my renovation objectives. After my first face to face meeting with Ben I knew that I had found the team that I wanted to work with concerning these changes. I can honestly say that Ben and his team lived up to what I had read from other clients and then some. He totally restored my faith in contractors as well as the renovation process.

So here it is -- this house turned home. The dark interiors with a curious mixture of flooring products (with some hardwoods covered over with wall to wall carpet!!) are replaced with elegant, bright rooms, refurbished original hardwoods--all ready for move in day!

The hardwoods refinished make an elegant statement throughout the home. Painting the beadboard paneling brightens the space and brings the room into the 21st century. 

Again, the exposed brick and bead board painted a light neutral brighten the space, while the dark rectangular tiles ground the space. 

Double vanities with vessel sinks and channel spout faucets bring just the right touch of glamor and elegance into the master bath. 

The glass tiles bring a three dimensional effect into the shower. This no longer looks like a 1950's interior. The marble threshold, marbled floor tiles, and vanity tops are ready to welcome the new homeowner. 

Each of the changes reflected the intention of our homeowner to make this house into a home.
