Wow…what a poor neglected blog!

Websites (for me) are like that junk drawer in your kitchen; you have every intention of tidying it up, but you never seem to make the time to do it.

Work and life have been great! I’ve said to multiple people lately - If you can’t find work doing construction in Atlanta then you aren’t looking.

In the past six months, I’ve completed several commercial and residential jobs. At times, I wish I specialized in one thing, like decks or kitchen remodels. But then I realize how much satisfaction I get out of the variety of work I get to do!

On the commercial side, I worked a couple of months at Consolidated Container Company installing a ton of wood geometric panels on the walls and ceiling in their reception area. It was a tedious job, but turned out beautiful. I also worked about a month on the new Ecco restaurant in Buckhead. It has an eclectic feel, and the design and theme changes throughout the restaurant. Again, a LOT of wood detail, as we did everything from installing banquets to boxing in huge steel columns. I started this year off installing faux wainscoting in the leasing office/fitness center of a new apartment complex in Woodstock. Most of this work is through a long-time partner of mine, Welborn-Henson. They have a huge facility in South Atlanta, where they produce incredible wood and steel projects.

Residentially, I’ve done a few short jobs, as well as a complete kitchen remodel in Dunwoody, and a screened porch addition in Dallas. 2019 looks to be a busy year!

This was a fun day! We installed this 8 foot tall logo, which was CNC-machined in six different panels. The panels were put together and then sandwiched with red-tinted plexiglass between over 3,000 LED lights. We then pivoted the entire unit up onto the wall. That was a few tense moments!

Commercial jobs, like this one at Ecco restaurant, require teamwork from almost all the trades on site, at times. Installing this unit, which is behind a huge bar, was one of those efforts. We worked with electricians, lighting installers, welders (for the wine cooler in the middle), refrigeration technicians, flooring contractors, and architects. It takes a village!

A before/after of a recent kitchen renovation. Refinishing existing cabinets can save you thousands of dollars. We added a new countertop, appliances, a stone backsplash, sink, and a faucet that only requires a touch to activate! It works on a battery operated sensor located under the sink cabinet.

A screened porch addition we built for some long-time clients in Dallas, GA. Giving people new spaces to enjoy is so much fun!
