Construction Resources company Atlanta Glass and Mirror is proud to have helped create Aimee’s Wing, the home addition for Aimee Copeland. This almost 2,000 square foot addition was made possible by the generosity of many builders, suppliers and contractors to help Aimee get around her home easier and begin rehabilitation. Aimee suffered a deep cut during a zip lining accident in May and then contracted a rare, flesh eating bacterial infection that lead to the amputation of one of her legs and both of her hands.
This addition was done “Extreme Makeover” style with a legion of volunteers and completed in less than one month. The addition features a study, bedroom, elevator and exercise studio, where Atlanta Glass and Mirror installed two mirror walls and towel racks. Atlanta Glass and Mirror also installed adjustable closet maid wire shelving in her bedroom closet and vanity mirrors in her bathroom. The home addition was spearheaded by Pulte Homes, who worked with Aimee to make sure the functionality and design met her needs. The Home Depot also helped remodel the great room and kitchen.

As you might recall, we recently held our Spring Clearance Sale event, during which tons of our inventory was on discount and we offered special buys on our extensive selection of Cambria Quartz countertops.
One of the buyers at our sale, Pam Heisler of Smoke Rise, Georgia, let us follow up with her and take pictures of her installations. Four bathrooms received a Cambria upgrade and they turned out beautifully!
The bathroom vanity in the powder room features Cambria’s Aragon. The color stands out in the luxuriant red bathroom, and the hints of yellow in the countertop work well with the gold and bronze accents in the room’s décor. Read More→

If you’ve been checking out the DiY Network, you have probably come across Run My Renovation. In the show, homeowners give up all control over a renovation as every choice is made by online voters. While it sounds risky, the lucky homeowners in the episode “Rekindling the Kitchen Love,” struck it rich with surfaces from the Artisan Group. These high quality stone countertops are available at Construction Resources, and were chosen by a landslide of online votes for the most important part of the kitchen.
In fact, over sixty percent of the voters chose Artisan Group’s Golden Crystal stone counter surface for the episode’s kitchen renovation. The episode explores a complete renovation, with the homeowners involved in every way, from hands-on demolishing their own kitchen to applying the paint Read More→
There’s certainly a happy customer in Philadelphia, who is enjoying a Saratoga Soapstone counter surface in his “MLB mancave” courtesy of DIY network House Crashers. The show turned the home’s plain jane family room into a shrine to everything baseball. You can see a great overview of the show above, and it is still airing as part of the show’s fifth season. If you prefer not to watch on air, the episode will be available for purchase on iTunes soon.
The renovation started by destroying the family room. The crew demolished a brick wall to make room for the many improvements, which spanned into the outdoors. The man cave began with a wet bar of Artisan Group Mineral Black Saratoga Soapstone with eight taps, fueled by a refrigerated set of kegs situated in the basement. The basement is accessible from a specially crafted elevator dubbed the “kegavator,” to ferry kegs and people to keep the eight taps running for thirsty Phanatics. A custom made bar top of signed baseballs in resin forms the bar on the opposite side of the taps with Philadelphia Phillies bar stools. Couches form a secondary viewing area with jerseys and huge photo posters of Citizens Bank Park.
Outside in a redone patio area is the primary viewing area with a huge HDTV screen, authentic stadium seats, state-of-the-art grill, and landscaping Read More→

Think about all of the important moments that happen at your conference table. When you have a new client or vendor come in to your office, what impression does your conference table leave: power and importance, or neglect?
Construction Resources can provide you with a conference table that makes a statement. Do you need an elegant table, with clean lines and lasting design? You may want to consider marble, like the table in the photograph. This table was installed at KPMG’s SunTrust Plaza office and is made of Calcutta Borghini marble.
Atlanta Kitchen recently contributed to beautifying Atlanta in well-trafficked areas. In conjunction with C.H. Briggs, Atlanta Kitchen fabricated and installed art made of DuPont Corian in a local MARTA station. The project was done as a part of “Light Up Atlanta Installation.”
The artwork, the Seed Bench at Peachtree Center, was designed by Kellen Minor.
“Corian is often thought of as simply a countertop surface,” said Mitch Hires, co-owner of Construction Resources. “The Light Up Atlanta installations show the true versatility of Corian as well as the talent of the Atlanta design community.” Read More→
For the last 160 years or so, the Moss Home has stood resolute in historical Newnan, Ga. What this home has seen in its time far surpasses the things humans get to see in a normal lifespan. This home stood through the a civil war, the turn of two centuries, the Great Depression, two world wars, rock and roll’s birth, decades of crazy hair and even the dawn of our own digital age.
The home has passed through a variety of hands in its lifetime as well. Originally located in the country, it was picked up and moved closer into historical Newnan. Passing from one owner to the next over the course of many years, it was even owned by the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society. Read More→
