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→
Mom’s got a sunroom, the kids have a playroom, but the best room belongs to Dad. He gets the man cave.
For those unfamiliar with the concept of the man cave, a man cave is the area of your home most frequented by the man. They are commonly known as poker rooms, workshops or recreation rooms. Man caves can be simple, maxed out, even themed. Excluding the kitchen refrigerator and the grill, Dad thinks this room is the coolest thing in the whole house.
The staple of any man cave is a comfy couch or recliner. After all, Dad wants to lounge around and watch the big game, not feel like he’s got a bleacher seat while in his own home.
Fun features like a pool or poker table, flat screen TV and gaming console run a close second.
A mini-bar or kitchenette is also a must-have. Remember, the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Read More→
We are proud to carry the brand new Cambria Waterstone collection! This trendsetting new collection features 12 new colors that are sure to revolutionize the quartz industry. These new colors can be seen at the Construction Resources showrooms.
Summer Kath, Cambria’s Director of Brand, said the company “had a breakthrough discovery now seen in the Waterstone Collection. Our game-changing colors will send shock waves through the industry.”
Water’s natural movement over stone inspired this new line of quartz, which encompasses an array of tones from neutral to vibrant.
Each of the colors is named for a place in Wales and England, and installation can bring these places’ same grandeur to your own Atlanta real estate. For example, Buckingham has been named for the British Monarchy’s palace, and unexpected twists of brown, gold and gray make it look rich. Torquay has a more stylish, continental feel like the English Riviera town it is named after. This color has a pure milky nature complemented by swirls of gray and tan. Read More→
One bathroom design trend that Construction Resources has long been ahead of is glass showers. This rapidly resurging trend is commonly found among the most stylish of bathrooms. Whether called a seamless or frameless glass shower, they are increasingly popular because they give bathrooms a modern and updated look. Many factors contribute to making them look—and feel—so luxurious.
Glass showers, with or without frames, can come in a variety of angles to suit tastes or blend into already existing bathrooms.
Doors are a very important part of the shower’s aesthetics. Shower doors should be both decorative and functional, or nearly invisible if the homeowner would like them to be.
The size of the shower is also important. More and more people are looking to have large and airy showers because of their luxurious feel.
Natural lighting is the perfect complement for a natural bathroom that has incorporated glass. Consider the positioning of windows and light fixtures when planning your shower. Read More→
