This project achieved a versatile sidewalk café type patio along Peachtree Street across from the famous Fox Theatre at Brandywine Downs restaurant that later became Bridgetown Grill. It took an existing patio and enclosed it with operable panels that allowed the use of the space in inclement weather as enclosed and as open sidewalk seating on warmer days. The Peachtree Street façade also received a completely new face.

This project entailed an extensive remodel and addition to an existing home in the Morningside neighborhood of Atlanta. A substantial portion of the home was demolished and additional area was added at the front and rear. An existing freestanding garage was also demolished and a new two-car garage was created as part of the addition to the rear of the home at the basement level. The new spaces created for the first floor included a family room, powder room, expanded kitchen, stairway from the basement, and a large outdoor deck and gazebo. Existing spaces on the first floor were thoroughly renovated. The second floor received a complete renovation with the addition of a master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, a third bedroom, two new bathrooms, laundry, and multiple closets. The roofline was raised and the floor reframed to handle the additional load. New electrical and HVAC were installed to serve the new and renovated spaces.
As the City of Atlanta's Senior Building Code Official from 1989 to 2006 I was responsible for Construction Code compliance on many major projects built in the City during that period including projects for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. Working with the project teams of developer, architect, engineer, and contractor, mandatory codes were enforced as required by law for the City. I have included here a sampling of these projects.
