Custom Garage is a Mom’s Organizational Dream

Recently, Atlanta Curb Appeal wrapped up a customization job in East Cobb. It was a mom’s organizational dream! We tackled the kitchen, the laundry room, and every family’s black hole, the garage!

islandcustommariettakitchen

First, in the kitchen, the family was in need of a central work area that was functional. The kitchen had an island, but it was too small and was made with a composite material that they didn’t care for. Our crew was able to build a custom island topped with a beautiful piece of quartzite; because of this, the larger surface allows stools to be pulled up underneath for added eating spaces. Below, each side is different: one side holds a new shelf for cookbooks; another, space large enough for double trashcans, a cabinet with a door, and finally three large drawers.

Next up was a custom garage. Like any active, sports-minded family, the garage is the storage place and dumping ground for everything that doesn’t belong in the house. And, if you’re lucky, the car can fit, too. To modify the garage, we first sectioned off a realistic space in the back to fit the two vehicles.

Second, we built a massive cabinet wall customized to their needs, which included their second refrigerator, tools, and paint cans. The father, who is a sports coach, has a lot of equipment to keep up with, and this new space helps him stay organized. This custom garage has everything, including big pullout drawers for the two dogs’ food storage. Everything has a place. To finish, we painted it and gave the floor a shiny and durable epoxy treatment.

One nice touch was the new bike rack. The client wanted the bikes off the floor, so we created a storage area by installing a wood rack secured to the ceiling joist. Now, the bikes are safely hanging out of the way.

Finally, we expanded the small laundry room in the house by absorbing some of the storage space from the garage.

This new interior area allowed us to create a beautiful and functional mudroom, which included a larger laundry area with a new entrance from the garage. No more tracking bags and dirty gear into the house.

Notice the extra space above the dryer and the storage in the mudroom bench.

Initially, Atlanta Curb Appeal connected with this family through one of our biggest fans. This particular client has continually recommended us to his group of friends, resulting in four different house projects!

The clients are beyond thrilled with the results. In fact, they said they loved all the guys from our crews so much that wanted to adopt them! We enjoyed working with them throughout the project, too. They are a very kind and patient family, and we wish them the best in their new organized space.

Gorgeous Sunroom and Magnificent Master Bath From Thin Air!

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is a reality.” Yoko Ono

Adding a sunroom can have two benefits. One is creating value to the homeowners through increased space for enjoying the outdoors without the weather; the other is a boost to their property value. Reports vary as to the exact number, but it is suggested there is a 60–80% return on investment when adding a sunroom.

For this West Cobb family, more space was the goal. The family has small children, and also their mother had taken residence with them. Instead of moving to a bigger house, a re-working of their existing floor plan was the answer. They chose Atlanta Curb Appeal because of recommendations from an East Cobb Moms Facebook group.

The first phase of the project was building the addition. Atlanta Curb Appeal began by framing out the walls and ceiling while leaving space for the huge new windows. Walls and floor installation were next. The clients selected an easy-to-clean tile that stays cool in the summer. To keep energy costs at a minimum, Atlanta Curb Appeal added insulation to the floors, walls, and ceiling. The clients chose a gorgeous, gentle shade of blue for the interior, a color that reminded them of their trips to the beach. Finally, the installation of electricity and HVAC venting completed this large, sunny space.

image1-1

Part two was making changes to the original floor plan; the main living room had a high vaulted ceiling. By dividing the space in half, an entire new space was created upstairs. Two windows were removed from around the fireplace. One window space was transformed into a useful, built-in bookcase with an outlet at the bottom for the TV cable and router wiring. The other turned into a patio door to the outside. Crown molding was added to the bookcase and door to match the rest of the house.

Now, the family had usable living space above the living room, which was to become a new master bedroom with added closet and a full master bath!

The shower was completely designed by the clients. They wanted a very particular marble tile layout, which the crews, through collaboration, were able to install successfully. Atlanta Curb Appeal is very proud of their custom tile crew; they performed beyond the clients’ wildest expectations. Polished marble tops the new vanity: a stunningly beautiful, white, 2cm. Carrera. Atlanta Curb Appeal’s crew also added a small cabinet by the shower. This phase was most challenging as all new plumbing had to be built and installed.

When we asked the client how she felt about the new space, she replied, “We LOVE every inch of it. Mom is living in our original master on the main floor and has her own sunroom and space. Now we can be upstairs with our babies, and we don’t have this empty, gaping, two-story living room. We love that no space is wasted!”

Stunning Kitchen Renovation East Cobb

Superb Kitchen & Bathroom Remodel in East Cobb, Georgiaeastcobbkitchenremodelingkitchenrenovationseastcobb

When this East Cobb family called Atlanta Curb Appeal, they were looking for a kitchen and master bathroom redesign. The original kitchen was cramped, and it needed some expanding. Early on, it was decided that removal of the adjoining powder room and integration of the space would be the solution to creating an enlarged kitchen floor plan. However, this was no small undertaking, as the majority of the plumbing had to be re-routed as part of the process.

modernkitchen

Step two of the kitchen remodel was a complete reconfiguration of the cabinets. Reusing some of the existing boxes saved part of the client’s budget. Atlanta Curb Appeal custom built new shaker-style doors for the cabinets and beautiful new fronts for all of the drawers. The new layout easily increased the client’s storage space by 50%.

One exciting part of the redesign was turning the old wet bar into a cabinet to hold their home beer keg. A beautiful custom island, hand built by Atlanta Curb Appeal, was the next step of the renovation. It is now the centerpiece of the kitchen, along with the new, stunning quartz countertops. Bigger windows and well-placed lighting now make the kitchen bright and contemporary.

The bathroom was up next for renovation due to its smaller size. A blank slate was needed, so the entire space had to be gutted to free up more room for the shower and toilet areas. Atlanta Curb Appeal then removed the old Jacuzzi tub and installed a new, gorgeous, freestanding one in its place (see picture below).

The client hand-selected the new, attractive bathroom porcelain flooring. It has the appearance of a hardwood but is significantly more durable. The shower hardware is also very modern. Its unique design fits perfectly with the room’s updated style.

This project was indeed a huge success! The client has already asked Atlanta Curb Appeal to return and refinish their screen porch. They also recommended them to their friends and neighbors, which resulted in projects that Atlanta Curb Appeal is working on now!

Dramatic Bathroom & Closet Remodel

This dramatic transformation of this bathroom renovation came together after a lot of planning and designing of the existing space. The old room was functional but did not use the whole space to the maximum capacity.

By breaking everything down to the studs and reconfiguring the space, we were able to create a better flow between the areas and create a much bigger walk-in closet.

Closet

One of the client’s top priorities was to create a bigger closet space. We were able to expand the existing closet into the empty attic space above the garage, adding a metal beam to support the roof and a post to support the long span beam. The client also requested to move the washer and dryer upstairs and we managed to stack it in the corner of the closet connecting all of the necessary plumbing. New lights were installed in the ceiling and a custom-made wooden closet system was built to optimally fit the space and meet their needs.

Bathroom

After demolishing the entire space, it was much easier to redesign and plan the new space.

newborn natural organic

By opening the walls, we were able to see the structure and figure out which walls can be removed and where we will need supports. While we agreed on the new location of all the fixtures, it was just a matter of  the floors and re-plumbing everything. Then we ran electrical to all the areas where we decided to locate lights , switches and outlets.

After closing the walls with drywall and putting back the subfloor, we installed a floor heating system and tiled the space. We suggested a few tile patterns that can go well with the selected tile and the one the customer chose looks amazing.

The shower got a lot more attention because we wanted it to be the focal point in the center of the space. This is why we decided to build it with two tiled walls and two full glass walls.

By having two-sides glass, the space was opened up and the two areas of the bathroom, the tub and the vanities, were connected. The client wanted to use mixed materials to created an organic and inorganic combination. As such, we combined porcelain tile, with marble, pebbles and wood to create a spa feel. A long soap niche created in the middle of the tiled wall, and a wood-look bench was placed on the other tiled wall.

newborn natural organic

Large, white wavy tiles were selected to go on the walls with no gap between them and very little white grout, creating the effect of full wavy white walls. The brown accent tile was placed in the niche shelve, bench and on the ceiling, complementing the other woodwork in the bathroom.

The water fixtures were selected and purchased by the client which included a complete set of shower heads, jets and a hand spray valve, all in one panel.

newborn natural organic

In addition to these, we suggested to add another 4 shower heads on a separate valve that created the waterfall effect from the ceiling. This required special plumbing techniques to make sure the water flow and pressure would support such a design.

The frameless shower glass doors were special order and have a unique coating on it called “shower guard” by Guardian that comes with a lifetime warranty. This coating is like magic and everyone’s dream. after taking a shower, you can leave the glass wet and foggy without the need to clean it each time. 10 minutes later, the glass is all perfectly clean again with no streaks or water stains.

The barn door was custom-made from old reclaimed barn wood. We combined the wood with metal panels to stick with the mixed-material theme. We then stained the cedar and oiled the barn wood to bring these beautiful colors out and protect it from moisture.

newborn natural organic

The door serves dual purpose. when its closed, it’s used for privacy in the toilet. When open, it covers the towel storage that was built into the wall.

A long vanity and tower were custom-made by Fancy Woodworks LLC. The client chose a white marble countertop to complement the color schemes of white, grey and brown. The stone complements the pebbles on the shower floor and the marble used on the fireplace.

Our client finished of the bathroom with eclectic furnishings, original art and some plants to give the space the absolute feeling of beauty and relaxation while taking a shower or soaking in the free standing tub.

Stunning Whole House Makeover with European Kitchen East Cobb

Stunning Whole House Makeover in East Cobb

KitchenRemodelEastCobb

Standard becomes stunning for this Atlanta Curb Appeal house makeover. From the outside, the building was similar to most homes built in the late ’80s, a two-story house in a friendly East Cobb subdivision. Like many of the homes, the interior had standard builder finishes, with traditional room layouts.

IMG_0147 BEFOREIMG_0131

What made the clients decide to get their house renovated? It was a recent purchase; they knew that the home was going to need help. It had the original carpets, kitchen the kitchen cabinets were dated, as were all the bathrooms.

 

What was the big change they were looking to make? They wanted an open floor plan, new hardwood floors, a European kitchen, and all new appliances.

LongviewKitchenRemodelEastCobb

What did Atlanta Curb Appeal do for them? First, we opened some walls and installed header beams. Header beams help to support the above weight and create the look of open areas.

 

KitchenLeadEastCobb

Broadening of the hallway to ease the flow of traffic to the living spaces. We also removed the long dividing wall between the kitchen and dining area, allowing a vast and open space. Consequently, this significant change required us to re-route all the electrical, plumbing, and gas systems in the kitchen. New paint and hardwood floors were next on the list. Custom-made cabinets, lighting, and a new island transformed the space into a designer-styled kitchen.

EuropeanKitchenRenovationEastCobb

Next we started demolition of the living room wainscoting and wall cabinets. The fireplace got a makeover too! We resurfaced it with marble tile all the way to ceiling and added a custom reclaimed wood mantel. New oak stairs, new custom oak handrails, and square aluminum balusters completed the main and second floors.

FireplaceMarbleAtlatnaCurbAppeal

When you are working on a renovation of that scale, what is the first step? Demolition is always first. Then comes moving the walls and installing support beams. It’s best to get the messy, dirty stuff out of the way. Always remember to change HVAC filters frequently during the renovations.

CustomFireplaceEastCobb

How did you pick out the finishes? The clients enjoy design and European aesthetic. With help of ideas for architecture magazines, Pinterest and Houzz, they came up with their vision. We helped them identify materials needed to meet their vision. The results were dramatic and beautiful.

MiniWetBarEastCobb

Why did you choose some brands over others—was it the price, quality, etc.? We did a lot of research with the client and figured out which manufacturers had the best-quality items using the budget we had set up originally.

What is the most custom part of the entire renovation? There were a few areas where they requested a special touch and attention: the railing system, the barn door and closet in the master bedroom.

CustomStaircaseEastCobb

Did your encounter any surprises? Getting the big oven hood in the kitchen to vent outside properly took more time than we expected. Reconfiguring the plumbing and the HVAC ducts that were hidden inside the removed walls ended up taking more time and effort too.

LivingRoomEastCobb

What has been the biggest change that the client has enjoyed so far? The large, open concept kitchen and dining space with the long island that is also open to the living room. They also love the leathered granite that they selected. It is extremely unique and is a great conversation piece.

Stunning Pergola Adds Character to Marietta Square Pool

The birds are chirping; the sun is rising, and in this Marietta Square neighborhood, breakfast is being served outside. A handsome pergola by the pool towers over the table as a family starts a new day. A few months ago, this structure was a simple idea on paper; today it’s a reality thanks to Atlanta Curb Appeal.

Patio Pergola MariettaPergola Installation

Homeowners sometimes ask, “Do pergolas have a purpose; are they purely ornamental or do they actually provide some shade?” The answer depends on how close and tight the top structure is. The closer the roof boards are, the more shade you will get. The board spacing is determined during the initial client meeting since pricing is a factor – the tighter the gap between boards, the more material is needed.

CedarPergolaMariettaSquare

Commonly, people want to install a pergola in their backyard to add a decorative architectural element. The intent of this project was to complement the client’s swimming pool patio.

Wood selection is another important determinant for a pergola design. For this particular project, cedar was recommended. Cedar wood has exceptional qualities for outdoor projects. For example, it’s easy to work with, and although light in weight, it is strong and durable. Staining can be performed immediately, unlike pressure-treated pine, which requires a waiting period. It is resistant to pests, smells great, and has a long life. Cedar is also resistant to rotting and can handle a moist environment, which is important when you are next to the pool. It is more expensive than other wood types but worth every dime when thinking long term.

Atlanta Curb Appeal Pergola

After the build, the client chose not to stain the wood. Cedar ages beautifully in its natural state. First, it slowly turns to a graceful gray. Some elect to seal at this point; however, if allowed to mature, the color evolves to its final magnificent dark brown.

Curved Pergola Marietta Square

Pergola designs are typically standard in structure, simple columns and a slatted roof. Atlanta Curb Appeal, however, enjoys adding artistic elements and has never received a design too challenging. This client’s project was unusual because of its proximity to the pool; the arched shape of the roof allowed for a single side of main supports due to the pool’s cement foundation.

When asked how the client responded to the finished project, Atlanta Curb Appeal shared: “They absolutely loved it and said we delivered exactly what they wanted.”

When the Bathroom is Too Small

Updating this East Cobb bathroom provided for Atlanta Curb Appeal several challenges. Initially, a wall separating the vanity and shower split the layout of the master bathroom; this footprint made the bathroom feel tight.

BarnDoor2EastCobb

In the first client meeting, they examined together the family’s needs and goals; the quote requested was for a remodeling of the two bathrooms, the master and the kids. After a walkthrough, Atlanta Curb Appeal discovered the master bath would need a full demolition and a complete shuffle of the plumbing, with the shower moved sideways and the toilet placed on the other sidewall. This re-organization of pipes would prove to be more difficult when they started to cut the concrete slab. A final touch to this bathroom renovation would be the installation of a sliding barn door entry. The door opening had to move and relocated in a way that it facing the center of the vanity. The client liked the ideas presented, and work started a week later.

BathroomRemodelEastCobb

Significant changes to the master bathroom included the addition of a free standing double vanity and a huge shower. A beautiful quartz countertop was selected and added to the top of the vanity. This light colored quartz appears again on the shower curb and bench, providing harmony between the two pieces.

QuartzShowerbench

The flooring is the latest in porcelain tile sophistication. At first glance, it appears to be made of gorgeous natural wood. In a moisture-prone area like the bathroom, this is the resilient choice. The mimicry result looks amazing in this space.

FancyWoodWorksVanityMariettaGA

Industrial and vintage hanging fixtures were the selected style for the lighting. In the original design, however, the homeowners selected wall-mounted hardware. Since there were a lot of existing plumbing inside this wall, this placement would no longer work. The clients were able to find a pendant lighting alternative. It was a last-minute change, and it worked perfectly.

HangingLightsEastCobb

Another improvement was the mirror choice on the wall above the vanity. Big half wall mirrors have become passe for bathrooms, an 80s style that clients are looking to get rid of. Separate framed mirrors are the current trend in bathroom design.

DoubleVanityBathroomRemodel

Atlanta Curb Appeal performed all of the labor for this project: demolition, plumbing, electrical installation, vinyl wainscoting, painting, and installation of the barn door. The vanity was a unique custom unit from Fancy Woodworks, in Kennesaw, which the firm felt did an extraordinary job.

When asked about the client’s reaction to the final product, owner Avi Moyal shared, “They are super excited and happy about it. They even sent us a text.” (See below.)

BathroomRenovationEastCobb

The decision to remodel the bathroom of one East Cobb family’s master bathroom wasn’t simply because they wanted to upgrade the hardware. No, with two little children to manage, the size of their bathroom was becoming a constraint to their busy family lifestyle. More bathroom vanity counter space was needed, along with a better solution for closet space.

BEFORE PICTURE

BeforeBathroomACABeforeBathroomEastCobbMakeover

While magazines and Pinterest are perfect for remodeling inspiration, visionary minded contractors can offer alternatives, which are more functional or financially viable. Breaking down the walls and starting from scratch was the best option for this remodeling project. Excellent communication, mutual expectations, and specific deadlines provide the framework for a great experience between contractor and client.

 

BathroomRemodelingEastCobbACA

Vintage is the new modern in renovation design, and this updated bathroom captures it beautifully. The clients picked out double hanging bathroom mirrors over traditional style cabinets. The flooring was a new style of porcelain from Home Depot designed to look like wood. Porcelain tile is harder than ceramic and offers greater design flexibility. The clay used to make porcelain tile is more refined and purified than ceramic. Obviously, this is a better choice overall than wood flooring when so much moisture is present, especially when the little ones take a bath!

SubwayTileBathroomRenovationEastCobb

The bathtub was framed with a marble subway tile in the 3×6 size. Subway tile has exploded in popularity recently with good reason: they are easy to clean and bring order with a smooth repeating pattern. Installing a new curved shower rod is an easy upgrade that offers more space for showering.

 

CurvedShowerEastCobb

For wall color, the client chose a shade of gray from Sherwin Williams. The gray color worked well for this bathroom, complemented by the white tile and black chains hanging from the mirrors.

The finishing touch to this renovation was a barn door entrance to the bathroom. Atlanta Curb Appeal has seen a big increase in the request for barn-style doors in the past two years.

BarnDoorInteriorBathroom

Enlarging the bathroom required the removal of two closets, which were then reconfigured with access from the master bedroom space. Aesthetically, it has completely changed the look of the master bedroom.

Atlanta Curb Appeal Owner Avi Moyal shared his comments about their experience:

“I guess we did something right if they called us back a fourth time, after renovating their basement, deck, and kitchen. Our clients had been talking about doing this bathroom for a while. I think Atlanta Curb Appeal nailed it. They love the end results.”

Million Dollar Deck

What do you do when you have the skills to grill but don’t have the fancy backyard to pull it off? Recently, a homeowner gave Atlanta Curb Appeal a call because they had a deck but wanted something bigger, something better.

We sat down with our client and put together a beautiful design with a lot of custom touches. The “after pictures” look like something out of a magazine.

We asked Avi about the new backyard entertainment area.

BeautifulOutdoorKitchen

What was the deck like before Atlanta Curb Appeal started? Their original deck was small and made from pine. Our client was looking for a larger entertaining space, so an extension was a must. However, it wasn’t a simple add-on; we changed out all the decking to new cedar boards and added all-new decorative posts and railing.

CedarDeckCustomAtlantaCurbAppeal

What special features did you add? We added the hot-tub, fireplace, deck and the outdoor kitchen. For the hot-tub, we had to built a reinforced deck to support the weight of the tub and connect it with stairs to the upper deck.

HotTubDeckRoswellContractor

Did Atlanta Curb Appeal install the stone on the huge outdoor fireplace? All of the stonework was brand new and installed by Atlanta Curb Appeal. This unique handmade touch gave the deck a warm and welcoming feel. The client was looking for a “million dollar deck”. I think we delivered.

StoneworkCustomFireplace

Can you tell us more about the new outdoor kitchen? We designed the outdoor kitchen so the BBQ equipment would be next to the edge of the roofline in order for the smoke to dissipate while protecting the cook from the sun and the rain. The cooking area was design around this to create a space with sufficient prep area next to the drop-in grill and Green Egg. Adjoining this area was a seating space for friends so he could visit while cooking. The space was designed for utility but also for optimal entertaining. Just like your indoor kitchen, storage space is key for the outdoor kitchen. We installed full cedar cabinets with rustic hardware underneath the L-shaped kitchen and the countertops were a gorgeous granite complemented by stack stone on the back of the kitchen to match the nearby outdoor fireplace.

GraniteBigGreenStonework

How did you change the front of the house? We added a custom-designed portico, rebuilt the landing and stairs and resurfaced the natural flagstone and stack stone. We also installed custom-made shutters out of a beautiful cedar, which we stained and sealed with a protectant We recommended the cedar to go with the rustic look of the home and it tied in beautifully with the new cedar deck.

 

How did they find you? They found us by word of mouth. We renovated their friends’ house in the neighborhood, and they recommended us.

Gorgeous East Cobb Porch Installation

Recently we had the pleasure of installing a new screen porch and deck in East Cobb/ Marietta. Atlanta Curb Appeal standards are high when completing a porch installation. Safety, quality of materials and design are the main focus when planning a client’s outdoor oasis that will be a showcase piece to enjoy for years to come.

We asked Avi some questions about the project below.

Gorgeous Porch Install

Did they have a porch before or was this project from scratch?
No, they did not have a deck, but they did have a porch.

What did Atlanta Curb Appeal do exactly?
First we built the screen porch walls and installed a matching shingle roof. Second, we added a lower deck and a new set of stairs. At this point, we took the time to reinforce the old deck up to code, per inspections. Then we enclosed the area underneath allowing for added storage.

Porch East Cobb Installation

Look at the view!

Did you do more than a back porch?
Atlanta Curb Appeal added a front portico and replaced the front door. We enjoy installing porticos; the transformation is always astonishing. Then we renovated two bathrooms in the home.

Did you do any electrical upgrades?
We added outlets, new outdoor floodlights and new can lights on the back porch.

Why did they decide to do this project?
They wanted to add a covered porch and extend their deck space so they could enjoy outdoor seating while covered from the sun and protected from mosquitos. We also added wiring for an outdoor TV. It’s the perfect package.

How to Enclose Screen Porch

East Cobb Screen Porch

How did they find you?
Word of mouth. We have happy clients in their subdivision that recommended us.

What is the client planning for this new space?
The porch is mainly for the entertainment of kids and friends.

What was the biggest obstacle?
No obstacles. All permitting inspections passed the first time, and all work was finished in within budget and timelines.

How many days did it take?
The porch and deck project took just under four weeks. The small bathroom took a week and a half, and the master bathroom took three weeks. The portico took less than a week, including inspections. We did these projects in parallel and completed all work in about two months.

What did the clients think about Atlanta Curb Appeal?
They are so happy with the final results! They had a party to show off the work to their neighbors, and we’ve already started another project in this subdivision.
