Latest Projects

We take pride in our work. Here are a few samples of our home building and renovation projects.

Our Process

Phoenix Renovations is a full-service home building and remodeling company serving the homeowners of historic in-town Atlanta neighborhoods such as Virginia-Highland, Morningside, Buckhead and others.

We specialize in whole house renovation and addition projects to older homes as well as new home construction. Our team strives to produce quality, detail-oriented work, and cultivate long-lasting relationships with our clients. We are grateful to each and every customer for allowing us into their homes and excited as our business continues to grow.

See How We Work

Don’t let our name fool you – we do plenty of new home construction too!  While others produce big box cookie-cutter style homes we build homes one at a time that reflect your individual style. Impeccable attention to detail and a commitment to stay on budget and on schedule will make building your dream home with Phoenix Renovations fun and enjoyable.

Custom homes built one at a time reflecting your individual style and needs.

Latest construction techniques and materials that are eco-friendly.

Quality workmanship that’s beautiful and functional.

Renovations are our specialty!  We service mainly historic in-town neighborhoods so we know what it takes to remodel an older home and manage project sites that are typically in tight quarters.  When doing a renovation it’s easy to let the scope creep but Phoenix Renovations is committed to keeping the budget in check and making you aware of any changes and their corresponding impact.

Proven track record for updating historic homes for modern living.

Experienced at preserving historical and timeless elements.

Impeccable attention to detail and skilled in matching hard to find moldings, doors and hardware.

More than just a garage – a carriage house has to blend in to its surroundings and add warmth and function while intruding as little as possible into the limited space of in-town lots.  Many of our carriage houses include wooden beams, stone and complementing textures to enhance your existing home.  They need to be versatile too serving as overflow spaces for entertaining, cabanas, pool house, etc., while still able to serve its basic purpose of housing the family automobile.

Proven process to keep the building experience stress free.

Knowledgeable in maximizing the design and function of small buildings.

Adept at maintaining a clean and orderly job site to minimize the inconvenience of construction.

Get To Know Our Team

exceptional work quality

We had a great overall experience with Phoenix Renovations. We bought a home built in 1930 that needed substantial upgrades, but we felt strongly about maintaining the style and tradition of both the home and the broader Haynes Manor neighborhood. Lee Fiata and the Phoenix team were honest and upfront from the start by providing us with real perspectives, preparing us for potential issues along the way and illustrating a willingness to work collaboratively with other key partners (designers, architects, engineers, etc). We’ve had a number of compliments from others who have recently done renovations that Phoenix’s quality and attention to detail clearly shows in our newly renovated home.

ahead of schedule & on budget

Phoenix Renovation completed the second story renovation and expansion of our bungalow in Morningside. From our initial meetings through the final punch list, John French and his team demonstrated an incredible attention to detail, mastery of complex renovations, appreciation for the design aesthetics, a passion for perfection and a truly collaborative approach with us, our architect and interior design team. They are quality craftsmen who know how to overcome unexpected obstacles and deliver a quality home that exceeded our expectations in every way, ahead of schedule and on budget. Highly recommend!

pleasant experience

Lee and Phoenix did an excellent job with our second story renovation. They finished 1month early and on budget! It was a pleasant experience. In fact, it exceeded our expectations. Lee and John are both very professional. They have a great crew that they have worked with for years. I think that really sets them apart. Everyone that worked on our home was thoughtful, polite, and eager to get the job done – hence the 1 month early completion date! I highly recommend them. I am also a mortgage / construction lender and have worked with builders for years – so I have seen the good, bad, and the ugly. So both personally and professionally I would recommend them for big and small jobs.
