Hall Construction Makes an Old House New Again
Compiled by Grace Thornton
Thanks to Hall Constuction, this 1969 two-story traditional home in the popular East Cobb neighborhood of Fox Hills has been completely remodeled. Starting with the porch area, Hall added a new roof, new front elevation design, a rocking chair porch, new windows and doors as well as new James Hardie concrete siding and some landscaping, giving the exterior a completely new look.
The main-floor features a new floor plan made possible by removing a wall to open up the kitchen and living space. The kitchen now has custom cabinetry, a large island with a cooktop and breakfast bar, granite countertops, a copper sink and a butler’s pantry. A redesign of the fireplace accommodating an antique mantle gives the dining room a vintage aesthetic.
Second floor updates include a tray ceiling in the master suite; an expanded master bath with a spa shower, two sinks, custom cabinets, granite countertops and travertine tile; a new bathroom layout and design that included additional space for windows, which let in natural light, and a water closet. Finishing off the second floor remodel is a second full bath that includes custom cabinetry, a new steel tub/shower with tile, granite countertops and a double vanity. Desk nooks in the children’s rooms and an updated hand rail with wrought iron spindles leading to and from the second floor were added to update the space. The basement was finished with an egress window for safety, increased ceiling height and a guest suite complete with a full bathroom.
The house was painted inside and out, new wood flooring was tied in with refinished wood floors, the HVAC system was completely replaced and a second system was added for the second floor. Electrical systems were updated, a new control panel was added to the basement mechanical room, and cast iron plumbing was replaced with PVC pipes. Now this home has all the features of a newly constructed house within an established community close to Atlanta.
