Family Fun - Inside-Out, Location - Vinings


The Assignment

Our clients wanted to build a new family room addition to replace the small, poorly-constructed family room the previous owner had built. Their requests included:

  • The transition from inside to outside to be easy
  • A gathering place for adults
  • Separate game room for their children
  • An outdoor living space with a fireplace.

The Work

Here’s what Harbour Towne did to ensure our client received the family room of their dreams:

  • Lowered the new family room two steps to present a more gradual transition to the outdoors
  • Replaced the existing, low ceiling with a vaulted cone with decorative wood beams
  • Added windows and glass doors to bring in as much natural light as possible
  • Put in a patterned carpet to provide child-friendly comfort and sound-deadening qualities
  • Added hardwood flooring in the family room, leading to tile flooring on the porch.
  • Installed a stainless steel fireplace, enhanced with synthetic stacked stone
  • Built a perimeter around the porch, which doubles as seating
  • Put in a stamped, colored concrete patio

The End Result

Our client now has what they wished for--a warm and inviting gathering space that transitions effortlessly between inside and outside.
