Character Is Always The Differentiater

I’ve been wanting to write a post about covered back porches for some time now.  Ever since the weather has turned, I enjoy every moment that I get out on ours.  We are very fortunate in that, even though we live in a subdivision, we have a very secluded lot.  Our home is flanked on the left by a fairway with a beautiful stretch of

Well Worth the Accolades

I guess you’ve figured it out by now that I love to spotlight really cool projects whenever I come across them.  With that said, hats off to Tim Odom of Kitchen + Bath Artisans.  He recently picked up an NKBA Calla award;  For Kitchen Design of the Year, with this one.  And it is Remarkable.  Tim happens to be one of my favorite designers and his projects never … Read More Well Worth the Accolades

Stately Defined

In following up on my latest post; entitled “The One” and which highlighted my all time favorite kitchen, I thought that I would dedicate the next two blogs to the close runner-ups.  This one here is the product of the collaborative effort of William Litchfield Residential Designs and Jacquelynne P. Lanham Designs.  I just happened to come across it while roaming through the AH&L archives.  … Read More Stately Defined

Grand Transformations

I think you will most definitely enjoy this one. It was not only fun to build out, but, it also had an incredible, earth-shattering impact on the character of the Home. Located in the Brookfield Country Club right on the golf course, this home was the collection of multiple renovations performed by the previous owner. Not only did the craftsmanship leave a lot to … Read More Grand Transformations

Loring Heights ~ Part 2

A couple of weeks ago, I featured this home’s master bath. In case you missed it, you can catch it here. Today ~ I thought I’d bring you some photos from the kitchen project. I absolutely love this home . It is located in the quiet little community of Loring Heights, just west of Atlanta. For these owners, it is all about the location. … Read More Loring Heights ~ Part 2

Random Snippets 3 ~ A Masterful Balcony

In case you missed it, I recently did a whole post on the importance of getting the roof dormer right.  You can see the whole thing by clicking here.  Anyway, while killing time and strolling through some websites I came across this one and it just blew me away.       Talk about making a statement.  This one is so striking.  Right off … Read More Random Snippets 3 ~ A Masterful Balcony

Random Snippets 2 ~ It’s Really So Simple

Sometimes we will rule out employing quality design elements or solid architectural detailing right from the get go because we think that it may be too cost prohibitive or that our project is not up to that level of distinction.  In reality though, there are so many ways to enhance the aesthetics of a home with some very simple techniques.       Notice how this simple (yet … Read More Random Snippets 2 ~ It’s Really So Simple

Random Snippets 1 ~ The Art of Siting

Undoubtedly “Siting” a house on a piece of property can be one of the most exciting segments of the whole building process. I would even venture to say that this is the draw that pulls so many guys into the construction profession.  This is play at the highest level ~  orchestrsting heavy equipment, managing excavating activities, executing surveying details, laying out the foundations,  Then there’s setting form boards, foundation wall panels, calling … Read More Random Snippets 1 ~ The Art of Siting

The Road Less Traveled

I’m not really sure why, we in Atlanta, pay so little attention to the critical details of a Home. These are the elements that bring the home to life and allow it to truly become inspiring. A builder friend of mine, who happened to be very successful at his profession, once told me that in order to succeed in our market, you have to … Read More The Road Less Traveled

Dormers, Dormers, Dormers

  I guess a lot of people know that I have a personal pet peeve with the level of character and detail that typically go into the creation of a roof dormer.  Having grown up in Atlanta; mostly in some form of suburbia, I’ve seen my share of poorly constructed renditions.  I’ve probably built a few bad ones as well considering my entire career (from age 13 to … Read More Dormers, Dormers, Dormers
