The Atlanta, Georgia customers were fortunate to build two custom designed homes over the years, but not the rustic yet elegant Tuscan home that they always wanted. Being empty nesters, the owners purposely downsized the last home they built. Thinking that with just the two of them, a smaller home made sense, after all. It was sensible when their children were away at college but as adults, they started families of their own and that smaller home would no longer do! Naturally, the owner’s kids and grandkids love visiting their parents and grandparents and often did, so it was decided to build a beautiful new home where everyone could gather, very comfortably.
The nearly flat and spacious property was a great spot to build the owner's indoor-outdoor dream home. Since their growing family loves the swimming pool, the generous covered Lanai and Sun Deck, complete with outdoor kitchen and fireplace, offer a comfortable overlook.
A luxurious, private Master Suite was a must for the home owners as well as a Bonus Room as far from their retreat as possible. The Bonus serves as both the theatre for all and quiet play room for the kiddies.
The owners share a passion for gardening and have enjoyed creating “blue ribbon” environments in every home they’ve owned and this home would be better yet! They’d spend a good part of many days nurturing gardens that will be the envy of the neighborhood. So we designed a courtyard, alternate side-entry convenient to the Powder & Utility, mud bench, closet storage and even a drop off zone.
Great home design is no accident. We spend a considerable amount of time speaking with our custom clients. Many live a long distance away and in this case, we’ve not actually met in person! So, meaningful, timely and consistent communication is vital to successful custom home design. Our use of the 3D programs SketchUp and Sketchfab, is part of that communication, offering our customers a view of their new home very early on in the design process.
