Nashville, Tennessee is as diverse in its homes as it is in its music and culture. There is no single style or architecture that captures the entire experience of living here. But there are some recognizable themes. Let’s explore a few:
Indoors & Outdoors
One of the most prominent themes in Nashville home remodeling is the idea of bringing the outdoors-in…or the indoors-out.

Some of their projects include sun rooms, screen rooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, over-sized patio spaces, open rooms, and elaborate garden structures of stone and brick.
In keeping with the outdoor experience, Nashville home owners are also into gardening and backyard experiences. More and more residents are expanding their barbecue areas, adding outdoor fireplaces, retaining walls and extended patios and walkways. These outdoor projects are known as “hardscapes” since they turn the soft landscape into a more permanent part of the home through the use of stone, brick, and tile.

Our living spaces reflect this with large open rooms, indoor-outdoor spaces, grand barbecues and patios, and delicate touches of American Colonial style. There's a lot more than music in Nashville and our homes reflect this, while offering the simple comforts of the South
