Proceeds from the tour will benefit the Georgia Chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (www.mda.org). The tour is self-guided and will be held rain or shine. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 the day of the tour, and are available at www.AtlantaRemodelingTour.com, along with a downloadable map showing each home location.

“Every year the tour has grown in popularity, as we showcase the beautiful and creative home renovations, expansions, kitchens, master suites, outdoor living spaces, green improvements and more created by local remodelers, builders and designers. It is also extremely gratifying to partner with MDA and donate a portion of the proceeds to them,” said Mark Buelow, president of Distinctive Remodeling Solutions and chairman of the NARI Tour committee. “We also want to thank Valerie Hoff of 11Alive News for serving as the Tour’s Honorary Chair again this year.”
The participating remodelers and the addresses of their Tour homes are:
- Bires Remodeling - 12882 Waterside Drive, Milton
- Distinctive Remodeling Solutions - 1060 Balmoral Lane, Roswell
- Hall Design Build – 4704 Lake Forrest Drive, Buckhead
- Neighbors Home Remodeling - 2801 Long Lake Drive, Roswell
This year’s Tour homes demonstrate that remodeling projects can often be undertaken within the home’s existing space. All four homes feature beautiful recreation and entertainment spaces created from formerly underutilized basements, and one includes a landscape makeover to complement the newly-finished terrace level. The Bires Remodeling home showcases a new family area, bathroom, office and entertainment center with a wet bar and under-cabinet wine cooler and refrigerator. For a family with teenage children, Distinctive Home Remodeling transformed a Roswell basement into an extension of the outdoor pool and patio area with a sauna, steam room, custom bar and multiple TV viewing areas.
Hall Design Build, working with Home Expressions Interiors by Laura Bloom, built out a terrace level to include a billiards room, sitting room, bar, wine cellar, guest suite, home gym, spa, movie theater and powder room. They also gave the landscape a makeover with a saltwater pool, arbor and stone retaining walls. Neighbors Home Remodeling built “The Parent Cave” that includes recreational space with a pool table, large-screen TV, sitting area and wet bar, along with an enlarged bathroom and new storage space.
The 2013 NARI Atlanta Tour of Remodeled Homes is presented by Reliable Heating & Air/Trane and sponsored by The Home Depot, Oldcastle Surfaces, Cowan Supply, Stock Building Supply, Atlanta Home Improvement magazine and SEMCO Productions, producer of the Atlanta Home Show.
