My wife and I have worked with David Grace with A Classical Studio on three separate projects over the last seven years. We started off in 2010 when David designed a fabulous porch and deck bringing nature into our living space. In 2015 when we decided to do a total renovation of our master bathroom and wanted something strikingly different. We knew to guarantee success we simply had to call David Grace. Once again David delivered an incredible job and our bathroom was featured in My Home Improvement Atlanta magazine. Now in 2017 we decided to expand our entry hall, add a front porch, update our exterior and bring the design theme David started in 210 with our deck and porch around to the front and side elevations of our home. We are in the process of selecting the contractor but absolutely know David’s design will be a grand slam. Bottom line if you want the absolute best in design, call David Grace with A Classical Studio.

From Client

As a General Contractor, we have had the pleasure of working closely with David Grace and the talented team at A Classical Studio on a number of whole house renovations and new homes. They provide our clients with superb designs and their creativity and attention to detail is unmatched. David and Rob make a point to take time with each client to get to know them and fully understand their wants and needs and are able to accurately capture our client's dreams for their homes. Every detail is thoroughly discussed and planned out and our clients end up with the perfect custom design. They make a point to listen and communicate well and always provide an innovative design that is delivered on time. We appreciate the detail and accuracy in their plans which shortens our build time and makes our new construction and renovation of our client's homes a very smooth process.
