Atlanta remodeling company Paces Construction is the proud recipient of three Gold OBIE Awards this year. Three Gold awards is a tremendous feat for Paces Construction because the competition was steep this year for the remodeling categories. However, Paces Construction thoroughly impressed the panel of judges, who come to Atlanta from across the nation, and it is evident by the fact that the Atlanta remodeler took home Gold awards in two categories for additions and a third Gold award in the whole-house renovation category, winning three of seven remodeling Gold OBIEs awarded this year.
Paces Construction won Gold for an addition under $100,000 to Jim and Leisa Carter’s Buckhead home off Mt. Paran Road. The Carter’s remodel converted an older, undersized garage and basement utility area into a unique play and media room with bath, storage and kitchen areas. The remodel included extensive stonework, site built custom cabinetry, one-of-a- kind, heated tile flooring, and state-of-the-art audio video and gaming systems.
Buckhead residents William and Debi Lamb’s 1930s English Cottage-style home was the winner of the Gold OBIE Award for best addition over $100,000. Working with architect Norris Broyles, Paces Construction extended the kitchen into a beamed and paneled keeping room with fireplace, and created a vaulted-ceiling master bedroom with fireplace and new master closets. The bedroom and the keeping room flow onto an extensive wrap-around deck with fireplace, which has become a gathering spot for neighborhood events.
The third Gold OBIE award that Paces Construction won this year was for a whole house renovation. The home is located at 122 Tuxedo Terrace, Atlanta, Ga., 30342, and is currently for sale. This total renovation with a second story addition to a 50-year-old Chastain Park ranch home is an example of a stylish, environmentally friendly alternative to the teardowns and out of character “McMansions” prevalent in this area of town. Paces worked again on this home with architects Candice Carlson and Norris Broyles, who also grew up in Buckhead and went to school with Paces Partners Beach and Everett. This neighborhood-appropriate, five-bedroom home is completely updated, energy efficient and meets Smart Home standards, and at $1,295,000, is much less than the cost of the similar ranch teardowns in the area. Paces Construction is an EarthCraft-certified, eco-friendly builder in Atlanta that often uses newer technologies to enhance and extend the life of these older homes. Way to go Paces Construction for receiving these prestigious honors for builders in Atlanta.
