AT HOME IN AL P HARETTA

This kitchen was envisioned as a gathering place and inspired by what homeowners are gravitating toward today—a bright, open space. Utilize these tips when renovating the heart of your home:

1

Consider unique places to add detail. Open timber “X” design accents were added to the sides of this island custom built

MyALPHA_020-029_PROJECTS_1118.indd 23

by Wilson Handcrafted Cabinetry featuring a quartz countertop by Premier Surfaces in Alpharetta.

2

Incorporate eye-catching light fixtures, such as the Millennium Lighting vintage gold cage pendants in this kitchen, for added visual interest.

3

Keep it timeless. Avoid trends that could affect your home’s resale value.

Myles Chatham is a vice president of Chathambilt Homes, LLC. “We love serving the families in the communities in and around Alpharetta because this is home for our family. Our kids attend the local schools, we frequent the local restaurants and businesses, and we serve in the community churches,” says Chatham. ChathamLegacy.com

AT HO M E IN A L P H A RETTA

The modern amenities, charming fixtures and finishes of this bathroom all contribute to the warm, spa-like retreat the owners desired. Consider the details below when creating your dream bathroom:

1

Brainstorm features and styles to incorporate that excite you. The open furniture vanity from Restoration Hardware was purchased by the homeowners and suits their affection for European concept pieces.

MyALPHA_020-029_PROJECTS_1118.indd 25

2

Anticipate and plan to move out of your master suite for the duration of your project and ensure that another space in your home is comfortable to use.

3

Select a design-build firm with talent, extensive construction knowledge and experience, and solid business ethics.

Robert Hames is the CEO of dBAtlanta (Direct Build). “One of our favorite things about working in Alpharetta is that it seems to be accepting of a mix of styles, which allows our staff to express more interesting and unique styles of interior design,� says Hames. DBAtlanta.com

AT HO M E I N AL P HARETTA

This Southern classic home was revived after a decade of life thanks to an exterior face-lift and first-floor renovation. Keep the following in mind when updating your home:

1

Whether repainting or lime washing your home’s exterior, the latter of which this owner did, detailed preparation (such as repairing damage) and pressure washing are necessary beforehand.

“We love the quality and caliber of custom homes that we get to build in and around Alpharetta. Plus, we enjoy our partnerships with excellent designers, realtors, and clients who are also our friends,” says William Austin.

Don’t wait five or six years until it is time to repaint your home to seal cracks. Address caulking on exterior windows, trim boards, and siding annually to prevent water intrusion and rot down the road.

Make a big impact with small changes. Swapping out doorknobs and hinges can create an updated look without replacing the whole door or trim.

Ranch Revival Done Right

By removing interior walls to resolve the choppy layout, adding light, and bringing the outdoors in, this home became the perfect airy and open dwelling to enjoy and entertain in. Try these tips when renovating your ranch:

1

Consider converting flat ceilings to vaulted ceilings with skylights. The effect in this house was dramatic and combated the darkness that typical ranch homes of the ’60s have.

2

Ranch houses are often nestled into serene surroundings, such as the beautiful, mature trees around this house. Enjoy your view by adding a deck and large windows and doors to extend the living area outside.

3

Be open to the various home styles your ranch can be converted to. From traditional to midcentury modern, ranches are usually well-built and easy to remodel.

Magdalena Bach is the principal of Bach Design Studio. “Alpharetta is a very dynamic city. There is an interesting, diverse population here and I love working for clients who want more than standard and stereotypical solutions,” says Bach. BachDesignStudio.com

ROOFING

Q A

How long do average concrete repairs take?

One or two sections of sidewalk could take 1½ to 2 hours to repair, compared to a garage floor, which could take a day or more. Each job is different. From the area to how much leveling is needed to the size of the void, all of these factors contribute to Michael Cangemi the time required to complete a repair.

HVAC

Q

What are three things I can do to prepare my home for winter?

A

First, you should have a professional conduct routine maintenance on your home’s heating system. Next, clear the leaves and other debris Bill Mashraky and Mike Eberle from around the outdoor unit. And last but not least, clean the vents and make sure there is unobstructed airflow around both the supply and return ducts.

OUTDOOR LIGHTING

Q

Why does my toilet keep running after being flushed?

A

A running toilet can be caused by worn parts in the toilet tank or by high water pressure in the home, which could be caused by a failed pressure regulating valve. This is why it’s important to have your water pressure checked regularly by Jerry Hall an expert.

Assured Comfort Heating, Air, Plumbing Years in business: 16 Associations: NATE, CAAG, BBB A+ Rated 770.872.4429

A

The way to avoid light shining in the house is to place the lights on either side of a window or in between windows. This way, more light will be focused on the actual façade of the home. Occasionally, it will be unavoidable to have some light filter into the house. For this, we always recommend placing room-darkening Lindsey Barnhill shades inside.

What should I know about energy-efficient windows?

A

We offer a wide selection of ENERGY STAR® products, including Marvin Windows and Doors. Marvin offers thousands of windows and doors with two or three panes of glass that are energy efficient, versatile and Peter Morrison beautiful.
