At Copper Sky Renovations, we are as much artists as we are remodeling contractors, which is why old homes hold such a special place in our hearts. We know the unique history of each era of architecture, we know the current design trends, and we love getting to know our clients’ needs.This is how we’re able to accomplish our mission: to save Atlanta’s historic neighborhoods one by one, restoring each home’s original image and blending traditional design elements with modern touches of luxury and taste.
Our Craftsmanship at Work in Woodwork
What differentiates us from other remodeling contractors is our meticulous attention to detail. Take a look at the parlor to the left. Not only did we restore the original flooring and the original bookshelves, in themselves detail-oriented projects, but we also added a traditional and playful secret passage within the bookshelf itself to lead into a back room.
When closed, the bookshelf door fits seamlessly into its surroundings, trim against trim, so that none but a limited few know its secret. This is a great example of our craftsmanship at work in woodwork.
Because we believe every detail is important, we also spent time installing backlighting into each of the glass cabinet doors above the bookshelf to highlight the period serving dish display. To see how we carried this level of detail into the whole house remodel, view this Smyrna historic home remodel portfolio here.
Our Craftsmanship at Work in Ironwork
One of our favorite challenges is designing home details across platforms. Not only do we love restoring woodwork, but we also love enhancing and crafting original ironwork. For the outside of this same Smyrna home, we designed metal balusters and railings leading to the grand front door.
We echoed this same design in the back of the home and decided to enhance the ironwork by crafting and mounting a matching metal plant hanger on a wall adjacent to the railing. Perhaps the best part of this iron-crafted creature is its uniqueness: these Smyrna home owners know that no other home has an identical decorative hanging.
Our Craftsmanship at Work in Glasswork
Another of our favorite areas to work is windows. For instance, the window above belongs to an Arts and Crafts home in Atlanta’s Morningside Neighborhood. The stained glass adds a modern design to the pane layout (this one features our own logo) and of course designing it with every current design technique to ensure air-tightness and prevent drafts.
Finally, we made sure we kept the modern design period by framing the window with period trim. To see the full house remodel, click here.
Creativity in Home Remodeling
The examples above are a small sampling of the many creative and time-honoring ways in which we approach our Atlanta home restoration projects. It is our dream to ideate creative designs for whole-house remodels and carry out each individual component with unparalleled craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail.
