Lean-To

“Lean-To” – a building sharing one wall with a larger building, and having a roof that leans against that wall… In case you were wondering.

This lean-to was designed to cover the customers fishing boat. It was stained to match the other wood structures on the property, and the reclaimed tin roof gave the cover just the rustic appeal the owner was shooting for.

And for the record, the water that you see under the lean-to was from run-off, not a leaky roof. It poured that day just before the picture was taken.

Poolside Tiki Bar

At this residence in Marietta, the pool pump and filter were an eye sore, and the hum of the pump motor running wasn’t exactly what you want to hear when your sipping a cold drink by your pool. So we got creative and built a tiki bar around the pool equipment, resulting in a dual purpose enclosure/tiki bar, fully equipped with  music and power for the margarita machine. That’s Jake, one of the Turner Blair owners giving the thumbs up!

Custom Barn Doors

These doors were designed and built for a little girls nursery. Every detail was custom assembled, down to the ball bearing v-belt pulleys used as the glide wheels, threaded male adapters used as the wall spacers and a pair of old wooden spoons picked up at the local antique market to serve as the door handles. Not only do these doors look great, but they function just as well too.

Kitchen Facelift

For this kitchen facelift in Marietta, we removed the high top counter behind the sink, bringing it down to a consistent counter top height to accommodate a seamless granite top and the large stainless undermount sink. The dated cherry crown and cabinet doors were replaced with modern shaker style and both doors and boxes were painted blue/gray to match. The customer replaced the linoleum with hardwoods to complete the transformation. Decisions were still being made on wall paint and ceramic tile backsplash when the “after” picture was taken below, but hopefully we’ll have a completed picture to share real soon.

Exterior Door Replacement

In this example, the customer had a rot issue with her basement door. The wooden door, brick molding and threshold had fairly severe damage. We replaced with a much more weather resistant steel door, added proper flashing above the door and replaced the threshold with an aluminum model. While we were at it, a new oiled bronze lock set was installed and a fresh coat of paint was applied, resulting in a much more functional and pleasing aesthetic.

And if you noticed the door bell removed from the after picture, who needs a door bell on your basement door anyway?

Deck Remodel

Here’s a deck we completed for a die-hard University of Georgia fan in Acworth. The original deck was beginning to rot and was very uneven, making it difficult to get around in his wheelchair. After a thorough demolition, we came up with this simplistic design using sturdy 6″ x 6″ posts, black rail balusters and a 45 degree stairway making it easier for Mr. Shipp and his guests to exit into the backyard. You can tell from the picture below, Mr. Shipp was super pleased with his rejuvenated back deck and he and his family will get to enjoy it for years to come.

Privacy Fence – 8′ Dogear

Here is a simple privacy fence replacement, but one that made a huge difference in the appeal of this customers back yard. The previous fence was falling down, rotten, and the concrete footings were beginning to wash out. On this build, we decided to level the fence rather than follow the elevation change of the land, resulting in a very clean and professional look. Would you agree?
