Paces Construction was awarded another Gold OBIE, this one for a Buckhead hunting-themed basement remodel in the Historic Brookhaven area. Paces partner John Beach accepted the Professionalism Award at a black tie dinner on October 26th, 2019. The 39th Annual OBIE Awards, hosted by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, were held at The Georgia Aquarium. The clients, sporting clay and bird hunting enthusiasts, asked Paces to design and build a rustic gun room with plenty of storage, integrated with casual seating, bath and bar areas. French doors in the renovated space open onto a stone terrace with grill, a water feature, and outdoor seating and dining space.
The Buckhead clients had used Paces Construction for a Master Suite renovation in 2017, and hired them again to tackle their underutilized terrace area. These avid sportsmen wanted plenty of storage for their guns and seasonal shooting paraphernalia like jackets, boots and equipment bags. They wanted a comfortable rustic retreat feel with fireplace and television seating, and updated bar and bath. Paces Partner John Beach worked with them to design a weathered barnwood look with antique pine and oak beams and mantle, and slate countertops in bar, bath and for the mantle surround. Rustic barnwood doors hide a subzero refrigerator and reconfigured closet storage area. And a wall of matching cabinets with storage lockers, drawers and pull outs includes a display storage area for their sporting guns.
Paces wants to thank our wonderful clients on this job, which let us have so much design leeway and fun, as well as the folks at Atlanta Specialty Wood who supplied the barnwood, mantle and beams, and built the cabinets to our specs. And the clients friend Mary for colors, fabrics and furnishing help to make our work look so good.
