NARI Tour 2018 Weidmann & Associates Basement Remodel

    Have you ever wanted to take a close look at a newly remodeled home AND ask the remodeling team questions right there on-site?  Savvy homeowners know the best opportunity is the annual NARI Atlanta Tour of Remodeled Homes.  For the ninth consecutive year, NARI Atlanta, the local chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, will present remodeled homes in the north metro area, Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.  At each home, the remodeling team will be on-hand to showcase special features, answer questions and even talk about unique challenges that were overcome.

    The tour is self-guided and will be held rain or shine.  Advance tickets (purchased now through Sept. 14) are $20 and tickets purchased the day of the tour are $25.  They are available at www.atlantaremodelingtour.com and at each home on the tour during the event.  Sponsors for the NARI Tour of Remodeled Homes include Bin There Dump That, PMC Building Materials, Dove Studio Kitchen & Bath and My Home Improvement magazine.  A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Camp Sunshine.  See more at www.facebook.com/NARIAtlantaTour.

    “For nearly a decade, the NARI Atlanta Tour of Remodeled Homes has been the premier resource for metro Atlanta homeowners planning or considering a remodeling project,” said Kathryn Stempler, executive director of NARI Atlanta.  “We try to showcase a variety of remodeled homes on the tour so attendees can see refinished basements, updated kitchens and baths, whole-home remodels, porches, decks and more.  The tour is a wonderful way to gather ideas, giving people an incredible opportunity to connect with the remodeling teams who will be at each home and eager to answer questions.  We are also pleased to welcome Camp Sunshine as this year’s Tour charity partner.”

    Two homes each in Marietta and Dunwoody, plus a fifth home in Sandy Springs will be open and have been remodeled by the following NARI members:

    NARI Tour 2018 Decks and More

    Decks and More, Inc. (home in Marietta) — A dramatic vaulted roof and deluxe outdoor grill area were added to maximize the existing patio space. Beautiful stonework enhances the luxurious indoor-outdoor feel of the new exterior living space. This remodeling project includes work by NARI Atlanta member TimberTown Lumber Yard.

    Harbour Towne Construction, Inc. (home in Dunwoody) — The homeowners wanted to upgrade their kitchen with new cabinetry and appliances.  Harbour Towne Construction redesigned the kitchen to open it up to the living room and added a large kitchen island along with new cabinets.  In addition, a portion of the garage was closed in to create a mudroom.  The beautiful new kitchen features expanded counter space, higher-end appliances and a much better flow for cooking and entertaining.  The remodeling project includes work by NARI Atlanta members Dove Studio Kitchen & Bath and Wellborn Cabinet.

    Master Home Remodelers (home in Sandy Springs) — This mid-century modern home owned by a NARI contractor boasts a number of beautiful and unique architectural features.  Portions of the interior, however, were showing their age.  Tour attendees will see the dramatic transformation of an outdated master bath into a beautiful and relaxing new space.

    Neighbors Home Remodeling (home in Marietta) — The home was updated by removing the wall between the kitchen and great room and completely renovating the kitchen.  An island, 48″ commercial range and built-in refrigerator complete the transformation.  A butler’s pantry was also added to increase character and functionality. This remodeling project includes work by NARI Atlanta member TrueSource Home Specialties.

    Weidmann & Associates, Inc. (home in Dunwoody) — The homeowners wanted to transform their outdated, nonfunctional basement into several distinct areas, including a “man cave,” a playroom for their young grandchildren and a private guest suite.  Much of the design phase was spent determining the best way to maximize the space as well as to ensure that the guest suite and kitchen could accommodate the homeowners and guests of all ages.
