After the backyard transformation by licensed contractor Chip Wade, the Schroeder residence in Atlanta, GA now has a lot of function. An old shed was transformed into a chicken coop (left) and a sitting area with a custom hammock, as seen on HGTV and DIY Network's Elbow Room.
The Schroeder family asked chip for an outdoor space where their family could come together and create, so in his design, Chip included an art studio so that the family could come together and have a space to create and keep their art.
Balconies, decks and patios make sure that every inch of outdoor space is utilized. The top floor houses the master bedroom suite. The bottom has a large family and game room, as well as another bedroom and bathroom.
Chip Wade and his crew from HGTV's Elbow Room removed an old, dilapidated playground and replaced it with an inviting art studio so that the Schroeders could pursue their passion for creativity. The studio is serene with a beautiful chandelier, plush chairs and beautiful art painted by the family.
For the perfect outdoor living area, this home boasts a stone fireplace and surround, a small sitting area and an in-ground pool with tropical plants surrounding the whole space. The pergola takes a traditional turn by using columns underneath instead of the standard wooden planks.
Doing dishes is anything but a chore in this kitchen with a full wall of windows offering views of the Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., home's verdant back yard. White cabinetry and marble countertops are elegant without distracting from the beautiful scenery outside.
A sunny bedroom, one of six in this Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., estate, enjoys views into the property's beautiful back yard. An en suite bathroom with freestanding tub offers a spot for unwinding at the end of the day.
