We started this project in 2020. It was a house in a state of abandonment and we had to incorporate a design that would better highlight each of its special qualities.
Taking advantage of its structure, we appropriately chose the tone of the paints to make the space look much more spacious. We also changed the flooring and lighting, which gave an excellent elegant, and refined tone to the entire property.
Likewise, the bathroom and kitchen became magnificent spaces ready to be used and for their owners to live comfortably in a very functional environment, with top-quality finishes based on recent trends in interior design.
Basic information about the Project
At Avatar Contractors we always focus our project on functionality and excellence in every job we start. For this reason, we turned this property into a beautiful space not only ready to live in but with perfect features to enhance its value and performance.
These are the main features of the renovation project:
Weeding of the outside area with the felling of trees and bushes.
Opening of windows to improve ventilation and natural lighting.
Painting of doors and window frames.
Total renovation of the kitchen area.
Demolition of walls in the kitchen to make an open space in the living room.
Construction of custom cabinets and countertops.
Installation of a custom kitchen island.
Replacing tile floors and cleaning work with hardwood floors.
Painting of all rooms.
Total remodeling of the bathroom in terms of lighting, flooring, and tiling.
Change of bathtub for shower tray, as well as other bathroom fixtures for matching ones.
Optimization of electrical lighting in all rooms.
From Abandoned to Brand New
One of the initial steps was to clear the property from its abandoned state. We cleaned up all the areas so that they no longer looked run down and had no debris or waste that is useless to the owners anyway.
We then focused on finishing the unfinished parts of the construction, such as painting the large walls of the living room, as well as the frames, doors, and windows. In this way, we gave it a fresh, renewed, spacious and illuminated air in which it is always very comfortable to live.
Total modernization of the kitchen
The house had a classic and closed kitchen, but given the amplitude of the spaces we decided to demolish one of the walls and make an open kitchen, with cabinets made of marble of the highest quality, and countertops to extend the functionality of each of the spaces.
In the same way, we incorporated a custom kitchen island made with the same marble material that not only matches but also functions as a dining or cooking area if you wish. Now the kitchen is a beautiful space unified with the living room that invites companions to join in that space and enjoy a good meal together.
Improved fixtures and lighting
The furniture and light fixtures in the house were old or in poor condition, so we replaced the old fans and light fixtures with new, more modern ones that matched the color of the walls, floor, and overall style of the room.
In the same way, we took care of checking that all the electrical installations were in perfect condition and that they were working properly.

The best source of information will be people who have used the builder for their own pool. We will provide you with a list of referrals, and then you should call the customers on the list and ask about their experience. Visit pools built by Avatar Contractor to get a firsthand feel for the quality of our work. Not all builders are the same. Many cut corners on stone work so they can move on to the next pool. Look at examples of our work and work by other companies. You may also wish to check with the Better Business Bureau to see if there are any unresolved complaints against the builder.
The U.S. Department of Energy recommends every 7—10 years using mineral insulation such as cellulose, fiberglass, etc. There are several reasons: -The first reason is that the R-values will diminish when the insulation settles down, kind of like a sponge. You see, the tiny holes in insulation are what traps the heat or the cold. Once those holes are full they cannot absorb any convection heat, as when a sponge cannot hold any more water. – The other reasons range from traffic, dust, moisture, and workman such as cable or phone installers who have moved through and stepped on the insulation in your attic, crawl spaces, or basement, thereby packing it down and reducing its ability to insulate effectively.
Every inch of batt insulation is equal to R-3, unless it’s more than 20 years old. For example, if you can see the floor joist (typically 2×6’s), that equals to R-18. For blown-in cellulose it is R -. Be sure to pay attention to the floor duct work. Lift the duct work to see if installers actually blew insulation underneath the ducts. Most commonly you will see insulation on vertical walls or the tray ceilings that have completely fallen down or never were installed properly.
On a 90 degree day, here in Georgia, attic temperatures can climb as high as 140 s to 160 degrees. What is recommended temperature for your attic on the same 90 degree day? You never want your attic to get above 120 degrees.
