Tour of KitchensConstruction Resources is excited to showcase products in four homes in this year’s 18th Annual Tour of Kitchens. Presented by the Junior League of Atlanta, the tour takes place on Saturday, March 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, March 29 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Each home on the tour features unique styles from different designers. Atlanta Kitchen, a Construction Resources Company, supplied kitchen countertops to four of the homes. The homeowners of a small 1944 bungalow turned their kitchen from a typical small bungalow kitchen into a spacious chef’s dream. Not only did that mean knocking down a few walls, but choosing the right materials was important to create a classic space with layered personality. White Marble from Atlanta Kitchen was chosen as the countertop to achieve this classic look and it paired beautifully with a painted brick backsplash for additional personality. This home is located at 2255 Fairhaven Circle in Atlanta, and can be viewed on the tour.

HammerSmith worked with the homeowners of a 50s style home on a whole-house renovation. The goal was to connect the beautifully landscaped backyard with the home’s kitchen. Everything has a place in this well organized kitchen including a built-in desk, pet station and a gorgeous island with Atlanta Kitchen’s Calacatta Marble. This home can be viewed on the tour at 960 Oakdale Road in Atlanta.

Homeowners at 3087 Peachtree Drive in Atlanta requested their kitchen to be “theatrical, functional and comfortable.” Mixing metals and wood created a dramatic and modern kitchen with functional storage including two walk-in pantries and glass wall cabinets for dishes. Atlanta Kitchen’s two-inch thick marble countertops and the deep grey tones of the cabinetry make the kitchen feel intimate and dramatic.

Another home that will be on the tour featuring Construction Resources countertops can be viewed at 5454 Heyward Square Place in Marietta. The homeowners wanted to make their small, hectic kitchen more open and spacious with a design that would blend authentically with their Craftsman/Tudor inspired home. Their kitchen now boasts two large islands featuring walnut cabinets that pair beautifully with the Vintage Delicatus countertops. Add a pop of red in the pendant lighting to feature the homeowner’s favorite color and this chef’s inspired kitchen is complete.

“We are very proud that our products are featured in this year’s Tour of Kitchens. This event is a great experience for people to get inspiration for their kitchen renovation and see new products they can use to achieve their dream kitchen,” said Mitch Hires, managing partner of Construction Resources.

All of the homes on the tour are featured in this month’s Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine, including four homes that boast beautiful products from Construction Resources.

The Tour of Kitchens is a two-day event featuring 14 of Atlanta’s finest residential kitchens. This event has raised more than $1 million for the Junior League of Atlanta. With a membership of 3,500, this organization’s mission is to support women, children and education by designing programs and events to engage the community. One week before the Tour of Kitchens, patrons are invited to attend a kick-off party, “Toast of the Tour.”

Built to Honor Construction Resources announces its participation in PulteGroup’s second annual Built to Honor event. Atlanta Marble will donate cultured marble tops in the bathrooms while Atlanta Glass and Mirror will donate wire shelving for closets, bathroom mirrors, bathroom hardware and shower doors to the home being built for U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sgt. David Payton and his at Harmony on the Lakes in Acworth, Ga.

On Friday, March 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Construction Resources’ Atlanta Glass and Mirror will participate in an Operation Finally Home tradition call Notes of Love. Project partners will write Notes of Love on the studs and rafters for the Payton family to read prior to the installation of the sheet rock. This event is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to attend.

Jody Horn of Atlanta Glass and Mirrors says, “We are honored to participate in this worthwhile cause. Pulte has once again gone above and beyond to support a veteran with not just basic shelter, but a beautiful home.”

Payton currently resides in Woodstock with his wife Heather and seven children. PulteGroup surprised them in December with the announcement that they would receive a mortgage free home.  Payton sustained life threatening injuries in 2005 while deployed in Iraq when a rocket propelled grenade hit a chemical tank that he was sleeping next to and it exploded. He suffered severe burns to his lungs and eyes and is blind. He retired from the Marine Corps in 2011 with a Purple Heart, among other awards.

Launched in 2013, PulteGroup’s Built to Honor is a nationwide program created to thank returning war veterans for their countless sacrifices by building brand new, mortgage-free houses. This year, Built to Honor is partnering with Operation Finally Home, a nonprofit organization that works with wounded warriors across the nation.
