Screen Porch to Combat the Heat

Coming Soon: Baseball, Beaches, and 90+ Degree Days!

April showers might bring May flowers – but come July and August, we’re all going to fry! Atlanta’s summers are some of the hottest and most humid around. Fortunately, there’s still time for Home ReBuilders’ design build team to help cover and screen in your porch, so you can enjoy it during this summer and for years to come!

Screen porches are the perfect way to spend time outdoors without worrying about bugs or the sun beating down on you. You can set up a table to dine al fresco with your family, without the citronella candles and flyswatters you might need when eating in your backyard. Or, set up a comfy reading nook to enjoy the summer’s best novels with a warm breeze floating through the room. Let your family pets enjoy the porch, too! With screen porch additions, you can let your four-legged best friend get some fresh air without the worry of them running away or getting overheated in the sun.

While many of our clients set up their screen porches with a traditional layout including a dining table or conversation area, we’ve also seen screen porches with fun and funky touches! Consider adding a hanging swing with pillows in fun, vibrant colors; installing soaring wood beam ceilings with recessed lighting and speakers; or using your screen porch as a hobby area, yoga room, or art studio. The possibilities are endless!

Can Your House Keep Up With Your Growing Family?

Growing family means lifestyles change – and so, too, must our homes. Regardless of which phase of life you’re in, Home Rebuilders’ remodeling contractors can make sure your home is working for you and your family.

For young, active kiddos: Just yesterday, they were babies – but now, they’re walking, climbing, exploring, and growing by the day. Many parents come to us seeking kid-friendly renovations: adding a playroom; renovating their basement to convert it into a kids’ area; or creating outdoor areas for dining, sports, or a swing set/playhouse. We can help you do all that and more, so your kids can tire themselves out in the comfort of your own home!

For messy kids: We can’t help your messy child (or spouse) become more organized, but we can help you stay sane while you try. Let Home ReBuilders create an entryway “catch-all” with custom shelving for backpacks, shoes, and lunch bags. We can even install a “command center” to keep track of errands and appointments. Our team of design professionals can also help create your own home office, so you can keep sticky hands and stray clutter out of your work zone.


This entry station keeps everything organized!

For the perpetually hungry teen: Why do some teenagers come home and tear through the kitchen as if they haven’t eaten all day? If you have a growing teen who eats a week’s worth of groceries in just a weekend, consider a kitchen renovation. We can build a custom pantry to keep your family’s favorite foods stocked. You could also renovate for more counter space and a larger fridge that will make meal prep easy. Finally, a breakfast nook encourages teens to spend time hanging out in the kitchen while they chow down, allowing for quality family time.


This Atlanta kitchen has plenty of prep space to host pizza night for a group of hungry teens!

For aging parents or in-laws: Caring for an older loved one can be a little daunting, especially with a small home. By converting your basement into an in-law suite, you can make sure that your parent or in-laws have a healthy amount of autonomy and privacy while also making sure they’re comfortably equipped with everything they need.

For YOU: While you’re taking care of the rest of the family, remember to take time for yourself! A bath remodel inspires relaxation and glamour in your morning routine or evening bath. Or, you could even do a master suite addition! We can also build a special room just for you! Consider an attic conversion or building a freestanding “chic shed” as your new craft room, man cave, reading nook, or painting studio.

No matter where you are in life, Home ReBuilders’ Atlanta design build team can help you make the most of it!

Spring for Atlanta Porch Additions

Spring is Nature’s Way of Saying, “Let’s Party!”*

All over Atlanta, daffodils are blooming and pink flower buds are peeking through the tree branches. Spring is blooming, and with each day that passes, the nights get longer while the air turns warm and fragrant. In a few short months, Atlantans will flock to outdoor festivals and restaurant patios with kids in tow – but for many parents, wrangling the family for an outdoor excursion can be an expensive hassle. Instead, why not create your own outdoor oasis right at home? Home ReBuilders Atlanta design build team can help make it happen!



The owners of this traditional Buckhead home realized that screen porches blend the best of indoor and outdoor living!



Having an outdoor dining area at home is a life-changing renovation for so many reasons. If you have young children, you’re probably well aware of the challenges that can come with bringing the kids out to dinner. You might forget to bring the pacifier, so your little one will be restless during the entire excursion. Your toddler might decide to have a tantrum if his or her food doesn’t come out correctly, or your picky eater might struggle to find something on the menu that suits their tastes. An at-home outdoor dining area allows for the same special feeling of being at a restaurant, while saving some of the headaches that can come along with dining out.

If you’re an aspiring chef, an outdoor kitchen can give you a new outlet to showcase your culinary talents on the grill – or, if you’re more the type to relax while someone else does the cooking, we can help add some lounge areas or a hammock to your backyard. With expertise in designing, building, and landscaping outdoor projects, the Home ReBuilders team of Atlanta remodeling contractors are well-equipped to manage your porch additions and other outdoor dining areas from start to finish! We can also help add fun touches, such as an outdoor fireplace, custom lighting, an outdoor cooking prep space or bar area, and just about anything else you can imagine!

Even all these features can’t stop messy eaters and clumsy chefs – so perhaps the best part of an outdoor kitchen and dining area is being able to hose off the mess at the end of the meal!

A Renovation for the Whole Family

Are you ready for a staycation every day? 

 What if you didn’t need a vacation to unwind? What if your favorite restaurant happened to be your own kitchen? What if relaxation and fun could be found in each moment of each day, in your own home? With a renovation, your Atlanta home can absolutely be a vacation spot. In fact, it can be one of the best vacation spots! Here are just a few ways you can transform your home into the most relaxing place around – and Home ReBuilders can help you make all of them a reality!


Revamp the Heart of the Home: Imagine having custom cabinets that actually fit your possessions (instead of forcing your belongings to fit into tight spaces!). How great would it be for your kids to have a homework station right in the kitchen, so can chat with them and help them while you cook dinner? What if you could host your friends and family for dinner parties, because you had enough room for everyone to gather? All of this is easily possible – and more! Whether your kitchen renovation is a standalone project or part of a whole house renovation, the end result will be a beautiful space where you can share food and memories with the whole family.

Get Your Grill: In Atlanta, patio season can start in March and last through October! When you can spend up to 2/3 of the year outside, it seems silly to not have outdoor dining and entertaining areas. You could add a grill to cook up burgers for the family, fun games like cornhole or a big fire pit to enjoy with friends, an outdoor TV to catch the big game, a built-in bar area for parties, or just about anything else you can dream up! Home ReBuilders’ design build team can create a rustic outdoor retreat, a cool urban oasis, or anything in between.5-Specialty-MorningsideExterior-4

Build a Home Movie Theater: Sometimes, the most relaxing way to spend an evening is snuggling with your partner while watching the newest episode of Westworld or catching up on House of Cards. With a home movie theater, you’ll get the ultimate indulgent experience – and family movie nights will never be the same! Let Home ReBuilders’ remodeling contractors handle all the details of your movie room: mounting your speakers, soundproofing, choosing the right finishes and lighting, and even installing multiple rows of seating, like a real movie theater! A home theater might just be so relaxing that you won’t mind watching Frozen or Finding Dory for the bajillionth time!

 We thrive on our clients’ creativity, so if there’s a dream project you’ve had in mind for awhile, give us a call! While there’s no substitute for taking a “real” vacation now and then, with the right touches, you’ll have everything you need to relax and make magical memories right at home.
