This new house was built for a professional couple who wanted to find a larger home but still live within walking distance of downtown Decatur, Georgia. After looking for years they finally settled on a lot next to their children's elementary school and close to downtown. The biggest challenge was to design a house that looked like it had always been a part of the turn of the century neighborhood that it is located in and not a new construction project.

In order to reflect the a look and feel of the neighborhood, the exterior of the house is anchored by two traditional entry features, the front porch and the port-a-cochere. The large front porch welcomes guests to the home and allows the family to sit on the porch swing and mingle with neighbors as they pass by. In Decatur, carriage houses and detached garages are a common sight.  Therefore the family opted for a detached garage that is accessed via the side port-a-cochere. The red dutch door on this side entrance, welcomes family and friends directly into the mudroom. Vintage details were incorporated on the exterior of the house such as reclaimed farmhouse wood brackets and diamond pattern window mullions.  The back of the house has a screened in porch, almost a necessity in the South.

On the interior, the house feels very open and modern yet it incorporates all of the traditional rooms found in older homes in the area. The gracious foyer leads to a "front parlor" that also functions as a piano room and as a private living room for their guests. There is a guest suite on the main level that would accommodate aging parents and is connected to the front parlor. The side entry leads to a mud room which opens to the kitchen and accounts for most of the family's daily traffic through the house. The kitchen, breakfast, and family room are all combined in the back of the house and lead directly to the private expansive backyard. To complement the homeowners' love of entertaining the kitchen incorporates an 12' long island and custom baking center. An antique pantry cabinet was refurbished and built into the kitchen. In addition, the x-pattern found on the antique pantry cabinet was incorporated into the tops of the new cabinetry.

larsonbrent larsonbrent writes: Things to consider when shopping for the best hard disk drives
If you are shopping for the best laptop hard drive, you're going to have your work cut out for you, especially buy laptop hard drive online. Finding a reliable hard drive to purchase is not going to be as easy as 123. You may have to spend some time looking around on the Internet and doing some comparison shopping so that you can find a hard disk for sale that will satisfy your expectations and meet your needs as well, before you make a determine you can just know about the laptop hard drive cost in the field. Using a laptop means that you're going to need enough space to store your files, install your software and do everything that you want to do on the computer. There a lot of things to consider when you purchase a new hard drive for your laptop. Below, you will find with some of these things are and why it's important to shop around for hard disk drives for sale so that you can find the precise laptop hard drive that you want to buy.

1,Look for a hard disk drive that has enough space to meet your needs
Knowing how much space you need on your hard drive can be a difficult thing. Often times, people don't think they need much space but then they come to realize that they needed more than they originally thought. For instance, some people think that they just need to purchase a hard drive that is going to cover their files. For instance, if they have about 10 gigabytes of files, they may purchase just a 20 to 40 gigabyte hard drive. The problem with this is that you are not accounting for the operating system. If you plan to run an operating system like Linux or Windows on the computer, then you need to purchase a hard drive that has enough space to properly run the operating system and store your files. There are other things to keep in mind as well, for instance, what software are you going to be putting on the computer? Software can take up a lot of space on a computer, especially games and software that is very complex. These types of software titles can get up into several gigabytes of space, so you need to have a big enough hard drive to accommodate for these applications.

2,Remember that it's okay to go over what you need but it's not okay to go under
Of course, you can easily see there are so many laptop hard drive for sale online, when purchasing a hard drive, it's okay to purchase more gigabytes than you actually need, just like me, I love installing lots of games, so I bought a big sony laptop hard drive in advance. However, if you were to purchase less gigabytes than you actually need, this is not going to be okay because you won't be able to do the things that you want to do on your computer. Be sure to shoot for more disk space. Keep in mind that installing a hard drive on a laptop can be more complicated than installing a hard drive on a desktop computer. You also need to accommodate for the installation costs when you're going to have a company install this for you. Look online and do some comparison shopping so that you can find the best laptop hard drive for a price that makes sense for your budget.
