Sure this Georgia deck was great for star gazing and a safe place for the the family dog, but what this family really needed was more (year round) livable space! Enclosing a portion of
their deck to create this beautiful sunroom was the perfect answer. It wasn't long before the sunroom became everyone's FAVORITE room.
Enclosing a deck like this one can fit every home and every style. Compared to adding an addition on to a home, they are an easy, budget friendly solution! See more on AK's site: http://www.akatlanta.com/category.asp?c=536

This project was for the renovation of a humble cottage with an ideal coast side location in a quaint beach community which was transformed into an exquisite three level retreat. a coastal haven A couple about to celebrate the union of their two families wanted to transform their simple 1950s beach cottage into an idyllic second home they could comfortably share for a lifetime. Because they were planning a wedding and a remodel at the same time, it was critical that the project run smoothly. The deadline for the home to be finished and livable was set for one day before their wedding. After their upcoming wedding, the homeowners planned to live in the home with their four children and large groups of visiting friends and family during the summer and other vacation times. They wanted their new environment to be a comfortable and luxurious retreat for themselves and their children, with surroundings conducive to frequent entertaining and overnight guests. As frequent travelers and connoisseurs of art, the couple wanted to express their eclectic tastes and interests throughout the home, with a focus on compelling architectural elements, unusual materials and interesting found objects. They wanted their home to evoke a classic Nantucket style suitable to its environment, with its own memorable character and detail. The couple hired Titus Built of Redding, CT, to create a design and establish goals, budget and deadlines. They were thrilled to move into their new environment, as planned, right after tying the knot! Upon opening the front door, one is immediately engaged by the stunning view in a design that captures the essence of relaxed and luxurious waterfront living. At the top of the stairs on the third level, a remarkable pair of antique doors graces the entry to the large family room. Imported from a church in France for the project, the nine foot tall doors feature distressed oak on one side and antique mirrors on the other. The home abounds with refined design details. Every piece of cabinetry and wainscoting was custom built, lending the home a solid essence of enduring beauty.
This is #MyCurrentProject - but it's one that has been in the works for many, many years. Around Mother's Day 2012, Armstrong
Cabinets held a "Gifted Moms" sweepstakes, and asked participants to enter a photo of Mom's ugly kitchen, and why she is deserving to win $10,000 of cabinets. I knew that my Mom was a perfect fit, so we entered, and won the prize!
As a parent myself, I understand how challenging it was for Mom to raise 6 children. Even despite the demands of parenting, she always made time to participate in the community, at church, and in service projects. Giving freely to love and serve others is her story! I knew that this would be a great surprise to win for her, and that she deserved it. She is counted as a blessing in the lives of so many family and friends!
35 years ago, after living in their home for 5 years, my parents installed a new countertop and a stylish Armstrong Solarian floor. That was the last time the kitchen was updated and was long overdue for a remodel! Unfortunately, the longtime plans for my Dad to remodel the house were curtailed in 2007 after his retirement. Encountering health issues and a major injury from a ladder fall caused the project to go on hold indefinitely.
Thankfully, after winning the Armstrong Sweepstakes, the plans were resurrected, and the project is underway! It's a real family affair, with the work being completed by Hamtil Construction, which is operated by myself and my brother David. It has been fun to bring Mom's dreams to life, and she keeps saying "I just can't believe this is my kitchen!"
