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!
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.
