As seen on HGTV and DIY Network's Elbow Room, the Zappa residence in Atlanta, GA is now fully equipped for outdoor entertaining after the backyard renovation by licensed contractor Chip Wade and his team. Renovations included a fire pit, dining area, and a kitchen/grill area as well as a game area for outdoor chess, basketball and volleyball for the whole family to enjoy
As seen on HGTV and DIY Network's Elbow Room, Chip Wade and his team designed a space where the Zappas could gather and entertain as a family. The space is complete with a dining area and multiple relaxation areas, as well as space for playing with the life-size chess board.
Stone crowns atop columns lead the way to a giant chess board made of prefab 2x2 concrete squares with exposed pebbles. Taking inspiration from Alice in Wonderland, designer Margie Grace of Grace Design Associates. Inc., has red roses on one side and white roses on the other. Fourth of July roses, which are speckled and look like they're being painted for the Queen, are in pots behind the benches. "If it's your fantasy, just go there," says Grace. "Don't do it by halves."
