Callaway Builders, Inc.

The Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council congratulates Callaway Builders, Inc. for winning a Silver OBIE in the Residential Remodeling – Kitchen under $50,000 category for their kitchen remodel at the Falcon Woods community in Cobb County. The OBIE awards are the highest honor given to Atlanta real estate.

This project was more than just a simple kitchen renovation. The customer’s house was built in the 1980s and was a basic “L” shaped kitchen with tiny eat-in area. There were small openings to the great room and dining room. The design goal was to remove the wall between the kitchen and dining room AND the structural wall between the kitchen and great room to completely open up the space. This presented an engineering challenge that resulted in a large beam going into the ceiling and modification of the floor system and the walls below in order to properly support the roof. This done in combination with re-flooring the entire space with new hardwood, gave a very spacious feel to a fairly small home making all three rooms more usable.
