Mark the calendar for spring 2015 because Construction Resources is proud to announce that Atlanta Glass & Mirror will be participating in the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (ASO) Decorator’s Showhouse event. This year, the event will be held at the “Château Soleil,” a French-style estate. Attendees will experience seeing beautifully designed rooms from designers and will have the opportunity to see the Atlanta Glass & Mirror products in this French inspired estate.

For this event, Atlanta Glass & Mirror will be installing frameless shower doors in one of the bathrooms in this magnificent house.

The ASO Decorator’s Showhouse is an Atlanta spring tradition and the largest event of its kind in the Southeast. Built in 1998 by architect William T. Baker, this grand estate is on the greatest examples of European-style craftsmanship. The estate sits on two beautifully landscaped acres and is 14,000 square-feet featuring six bedrooms, seven baths, four half-baths, three family rooms, a separate library and study, a 26-foot domed marble entrance and a Versailles-inspired grand living room with a regal marble fireplace and dining room with 16-foot ceilings. Outside, a terraced garden compliments the saline swimming pool with walking paths and a large motor court at the entrance.

All proceeds from this event will go to support the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and its community outreach and education programs. Tickets for this event will be available for purchase beginning in February. An early bird special will be available for $30 until April 17. Tickets at the door will be $35. Children under eight are not allowed and flat shoes must be worn. Parking is not available at the house, on the street or in the surrounding neighborhood; however, free parking is available at the Medici and Forum buildings with a luxury shuttle service.

Vermont Marble Choosing a countertop for the kitchen can be a daunting task. There are many stones to choose from including granite, quartz, travertine, limestone and more! With so many choices, how can you decide on just one? For many years, marble has been the preferred stone for those who want a luxurious gourmet kitchen with an elegant touch. Construction Resources’ Vermont Quarries offers beautiful marble stone that is sure to add such elegance to any kitchen.

Marble is a rock that is made from limestone that has been subjected to pressure for a long period of time. This pressure is what turns the limestone into marble. Like all marble, the Vermont Marble is a durable material that will last a long time. Another interesting quality about marble is the absorption rate. Some marbles have a low absorption rate, lower than many types of granite, which is an important aspect when considering a countertop for your kitchen. Read More→
