Morningside Renovation

Our Journey Through The Renovation Process Of Our Future "Forever Home" In Morningside (Atlanta,GA)


Counter Tops

The 4 of us (family) went up to Norcross today to look at slabs for our kitchen and bathroom counter tops.  Gorgeous stuff, amazingly beautiful but somewhat overwhelming.  I will say though, Julie knows what she wants and has a great eye.  The boys and I started to get a little bored at the end, Julie had fun though so that is what ultimately matters.


Hope They Have What She Picked

Our GC said that we need to go by Specialty Tile to pick our selection, not sure why the change?  I’m sure that they’ll have the same selection but Julie did such a good job that if they can’t fulfill it then unfortunately we might have to go against our GC’s wishes.  At least it will give us the opportunity to go by and visit Builder Specialties and Fergusons to look at kitchen appliances again


Check out her Tile Picks

So Julie wanted me to meet her today at Traditions in Tile to see what she picked out.  Initially I wasn’t too excited about it but I have to say that her and Heather did an excellent job!!!  And… have I mentioned that she was under budget?  Excellent all of the way around!!

As for the check, well our GC called this morning wanting to know when he could pick up his check.  Wish that he communicated like this on a normal basis.  He was at my office within an hour – still couldn’t give me an estimate on when they would pour the foundation or when framing would begin.


Julie’s Having Fun

Today Julie was tasked with meeting our designer at Traditions in Tile in Buckhead for a preliminary look at all of the various tile choices and hopefully decide on a few options.  The two of them ended up spending the majority of the afternoon with a girl named Heather who Julie loved.  Amazingly Julie not only narrowed her choices, she actually decided on what she wanted!!   She was so excited showing me her selections that you couldn’t help but share in her enthusiasm .  Great selections and what’s even better is that she came in under budget!!  Fantastic Job and I love seeing her get so excited about the house as it’s been challenging lately with the various challenges.  Tile Box – checked!!!
