Renovations and Additions

Georgia Coast Design and Construction is primarily a custom home builder; however, when scheduling allows, we offer custom renovation services ranging from remodeling bathrooms and kitchens all the way up to adding new additions and whole house renovations.  We use the same skilled craftsmen to do this work that we use when we are building high end custom homes.  In 2014, we remodeled two houses in Sea Palms Golf and Country Club, a very large Italian Villa style beach house in the Village area of Saint Simons Island, and a large river front home in the south end of Brunswick. 


Our work on these properties included gutting and completely remodeling several baths, remodeling a large kitchen, and removing several walls to convert 2 small rooms to a very large great room with vaulted ceilings, 3 sky lights, and drop down ceiling fans.  The work on the river front home involved removing extensive rotten wood that had become a structural threat to the entire house, and rebuilding over 150 ft of covered porches, including replacing hand rail and water proofing with Hydro Stop.  We used a special process to finish the Hydro Stop in a way that looks like travertine stone, but is completely water proof.


The work on the Italian Villa-like beach house involved tearing off 3 exterior porches and replacing them with new porches in a completely different design.  It also involved removing and replacing several hundred feet of Mexican tile with new travertine tile, as well as extensive painting, stucco work, plumbing and electrical work, and various other miscellaneous items. The house is in the Historical District, so I had to get a local architect to draw the plans, and then we walked the plans and proposed project through the Saint Simons Historical District planning and review process.
