Modern Lake House on Allatoona Renovation

Atlanta Curb Appeal just completed a beautiful main-level master suite and finished basement at a home on Lake Allatoona.

 

The homeowner originally purchased the 1988 lake house two years ago and knew she needed some work done. Instead of tying up the whole house, she decided to renovate the home in parts. Spreading out renovations like this can save money and frustration if you are living in the space during the work. To start, ACA gutted the awkwardly designed area that used to be a kitchen, bedroom, and laundry room.

It was very important for the homeowner to create a master bedroom on the main floor. Additionally, she wanted a separate bathroom/powder room for guests to use. The homeowner had already renovated the kitchen with a different builder, and so she was familiar with the process and what they wanted to create in the master bedroom. In total, the finished project would include a master bedroom and bathroom, a powder room, a laundry room, and two walk-in closets!

We worked well together and enjoyed bouncing ideas off each other as the project progressed. The style the homeowner chose was a very contemporary style, with clean lines and color choices.

To kick off the demolition, ACA removed the old flooring, wood paneling, and drywall. We removed the walls and ceilings on half of the main level to restructure the interior. We also took out an old fiberglass tub, old tile, and an old vanity to create an up-to-date bathroom. For the walls in the small toilet area, the client chose a rich emerald green, which has a luxurious and calming feel to it. The client wanted an expansive shower experience, which would involve customization, and we delivered. To handle this, after the light-colored tile was added, a glass company measured the distances between the tiles. Waiting until this step to measure for the glass ensures a perfect fit. Then, we installed the stunning custom glass doors and walls in the shower. To finish, ACA added a new window, so there is now a gorgeous view of the water!

Because of the structural changes, we added some new LVL support beams to the basement. And while we were at it, the homeowner asked us to go ahead and finish the basement, which of course we were happy to do.

The entire project took about two months, including some slower holiday weeks. The customer and her friends are extremely pleased with the renovation. In fact, she already recommended Atlanta Curb Appeal to her neighbor!

Epic East Cobb Bathroom Renovation Sparks Serenity

Epic East Cobb Bathroom Renovation Sparks Serenity

A few years ago, we were contacted to update an East Cobb bathroom. Through the conversation, we discovered that mutual friends suggested that Atlanta Curb Appeal could help with their needed remodel. The big issue plaguing their space was that the bathroom was dated and not at all serving their needs.

See our Full Bathroom Renovation Gallery here.

Ultimately, the dilemma was that their linen closet was expansive and made the rest of the bathroom diminutive in comparison. A colossal jacuzzi bathtub took up the remaining floor space. Without a doubt, a complete overhaul was the solution. The budget would be in the $20-$30K range.

After a total demolition, we began to rebuild. The final results were astounding!

While this bathroom was actually finished a few years ago, people still come over to look at it! The owner is a photographer and obviously has an excellent eye for design and fantastic taste. She hand-selected everything from start to finish.

Currently, we are in talks about coming back and doing the laundry and mud room. We can’t wait to share it once it’s complete!

This month Atlanta Curb Appeal wrapped up a major renovation in Dunwoody, Georgia. The end results were stunning! We interviewed Avi Moyal (owner) about the project.

How did they find Atlanta Curb Appeal?
This young couple found me online. They collected bids from several contractors and selected Atlanta Curb Appeal to handle their first home remodel. When I asked them (near the end) what made them pick us, they responded that we were the only ones that foresaw future problems and elements that might not work together and that we seemed like we would actually be able to deliver the results they wanted. Secondly, the couple felt like we offered the best design solutions and that we conveyed the impression that we knew what we were talking about compared to the other guys.

What steps had to be taken to complete the job?
First we gutted the couple’s master bathroom plus another hall bathroom. Then we removed the old hardwoods and carpets. After this demolition, we basically started from the ground up and rebuilt both baths. We replaced all plumbing in the master bathroom, under the floor and in the walls, it all had to be relocated to fit the new design of the room.

Furthermore in the master, we added a new larger shower area along with new tile, frameless glass doors and a long wide soap niche. Plus we installed a new air tub, new vanities, new fixtures and finally new tile on the floors.

Did you encounter any challenges?
The master bath was a formidable project. It took a bit more time than we expected because all the walls and corners were off, they were neither straight nor parallel. It took extra efforts to make the tile lines appear symmetrical. The original flooring was also off-balance and had extreme “sagging” issues. To compensate we had to level it with three different techniques to get it to our level of perfection.

What other rooms did you remodel?
We painted the interior; bedrooms and living room with very modern colors that the client picked, and it turned out beautifully. In the kitchen, we added a new backsplash, painted the cabinets and walls and replaced the hardware. For the living room, we added new tile around the fireplace. Also throughout the house, we installed new-engineered hardwood floors on the main level.

What do the clients think of Atlanta Curb Appeal’s work?
The clients are overjoyed with the outcome. As you can see from the pictures, the results are like something out a magazine! Again and again, customers find our construction to be well done and solid. Our attention to detail has many clients coming back for more projects after they experience the quality of our work. We are so grateful we get to help homeowners’ turns their dreams into reality.
