Atlanta Area Outdoor Living: Screen Porches | Decks | Fireplaces

Fall is just around the corner, and cooler weather is on the way!  Now is a great time to add that screen porch, deck, or outdoor fireplace/fire-pit you have been dreaming about.

Pictured above is a lovely screen porch with brick and wood columns over-looking the golf course.  Our clients wanted space for entertaining  along with a grilling deck off to the side.

In the picture above, our clients wanted an indoor/outdoor porch space with a fun fire-pit for the family to toast marshmallows 🙂

In the picture above our clients wanted to utilize the entire back of the home to create an outdoor oasis.  We built a screened in porch over half of the area, and a deck with composite flooring for the rest of the space.  Plenty of entertaining area!

Whatever outdoor project you have been thinking about doing, the skilled team at Kolby Construction can guide you through the process with seamless execution!

Home Renovation: Is your house ready to be the “after” photo?

Many people are deciding to stay in their current house and renovate instead of moving!  Moving costs, real estate fees, leaving the neighborhood you love are all great reasons to decide to renovate your existing home.

Check out out this before photo of an older run-down ranch home in a fabulous Smyrna, GA neighborhood.

In this project we completely renovated the interior and exterior of the home.  New roofing shingles, low-e double hung wood windows, board and batten siding, new front door.  The interior of the home was also transformed as we made the entire layout a new functional open concept floor plan. To see more interior photos check out the project page of our website.

The next project below had a larger budget, and that allowed for a second story addition to be constructed, as well as a 2-car garage.

Check out the house after construction!

In this project the newly constructed second floor added 2 new bedrooms, a bonus room, and a spacious bathroom.  The first floor was also re-configured to allow for a generous sized owner’s suite, a fabulous open kitchen-dining room, family room, and even a small office.

The exterior of the home features 3 craftsman style dormer with brackets and board and batten shutters.  The front porch adds character with the columns and copper roof.

If you are ready to transform your house into a fabulously updated home, contact us to get started on your project!  The skilled team at Kolby Construction is ready to assist from design to completion.
