The Glastetters in the Saddle Creek neighborhood of Roswell, GA faced a problem when their mother-in-law retired and wanted to be closer to her daughter and grandchildren. They searched all over the north Fulton area for a property with a carriage house for their mother-in-law to live in, but they couldn’t find anything that fit their criteria. That’s when they saw our jobsite sign in their neighbor’s yard and decided to call us.

They had already developed the carriage house plans with an architect, so we moved right into material selections and finished the permitting. We began with the foundation work, which required several stem walls and grade beams. Once the footers were dug, we ran the inground plumbing and electrical conduit. We passed our first inspection and poured the concrete, and after a few days of curing, we began framing the carriage house. This stage went very quickly, and the Glastetters were excited to see the progress.

We dried in the structure by adding asphalt roof shingle, windows, and exterior doors. With the house dried in, we could start the plumbing, HVAC, and electrical work. We passed our second inspection, and from there, we installed insulation and passed our third inspection. The exterior of the carriage house was sided with part Hardie lap siding and Hardie shake. We moved into the finish stages of the project by installing the drywall and fireplace insert. From there, we installed gray shaker cabinets in the kitchen with a white quartz countertop. The bathrooms were tiled, and interior doors and trim were installed. Flooring, interior and exterior painting, and stair treads were installed to finish this project.

The Glastetters were thrilled with the finished product, and their mother-in-law was able to stay in her current home in a great subdivision in Saddle Creek. If they didn’t complete this project, the Glastetters would have been forced to either move or have their mother-in-law move into their basement, which was not a great option for them. We were happy to provide them with a solution that worked for their entire family.
