We recently wrapped up a massive addition in East Cobb, and we wanted to share how their makeover story began. The clients initially found us more than a year ago after we wrapped up a remodeling project at their neighbor’s house. Upon its completion, we met and ended up creating a kitchen renovation for them too, which they adored!
Fast-forward a year: knowing that their late 70’s small deck was beginning to age ungracefully, they began to ask us questions. Could an addition with two levels solve their spacing problems? Would an additional garage area for vehicles and equipment be feasible on their foundational footprint? Could that top floor have enough space for a screened porch, open deck, and kitchen extension? Yes, indeed! We assured them that with our careful planning and design, it could be done! We couldn’t wait get to work.
Demolition was step one. We removed the old deck and began laying the supports for the new addition. We were using a solid, sturdy cedar wood for the deck flooring and screened porch walls, and we wanted it to last for generations. We stained both to match. It’s gorgeous in color and fits beautifully with the home’s exterior palette.
The new kitchen extension included cabinets and quartz that matched their main kitchen renovation we completed last year. An addition of a wine cooler and icemaker were two more significant parts of making this a new place for entertaining. For the kitchen extension, we installed new Pella windows with custom benches. They wanted to bring the outside in with these big windows on the sides. You can look out and still feel the warmth of dinner cooking in the oven. It’s like having a small sunroom, but closer to the coffee! Sconce lighting was the perfect final touch.
Every home is different, and for this project, a central screened porch was the best option because it allowed them to hear the sounds of nature and feel the breeze of the outdoors. We even used a beautiful porcelain tile for the porch that looks like wood; it adds durability and is easy to clean up. Outside the porch on the deck was enough space for a grill. They now have the new party house on the block!
Pouring concrete to create a long driveway in the back was the last detail to wrap up the job. Plus, great news! A few days ago we received the Letter of Completion from Cobb County Inspections, the Chief Inspector himself came to look at the new addition for the last inspection. He shared that he, too, loved the project!
Our favorite part of any job is having the final feedback from the client on how a renovation has impacted them. They shared with us that they are loving their new addition and are impressed with how beautiful and neat it turned out!
