Hilltop Relaxation

re:FORM joined creative forces with noted Atlanta architect Eugene Surber to design this new family "second home" perched high on a hilltop near Elijay, Georgia. The homeowners opted to use the Earthcraft Home criteria (such as installing geothermal HVAC, foam insulation, a tightly insulated building envelope, etc.) to make their home environmentally friendly. In addition, they incorporated a "smart" system to control their lighting, alarm, A/V, etc. with the newest technology. The construction has been completed by Decatur-based John Wesley Hammer Construction Company and the home is now ready for move-in!

The home showcases classic, luxurious materials such as reclaimed antique woods, imported stone, and custom designed metal stair railings and door strap-hinges.

The cabinetry, doors and flooring are constructed of reclaimed antique hardwoods.

The structural truss work, columns, and brackets were constructed using antique floor beams that were salvaged from old barns in the South.
