My wife and I had Andy Holmes glass in our screen porch. Andy came and sit down with us and listened to what we wanted , made a few suggestions because of constructional concerns and was back with us in a few days with a drawn plan and an estimated budget. We could not have more pleased; we were so pleased that before Andy had finished the porch we had him redo the garage, put on a new roof, and new gutters all around the house.
All of Andy’s workers were very professional, always came they were suppose to, and always on time. We got to know most of the guys by their first names. Andy checked on out progress almost every day and when he couldn’t he was just a phone call away. We changed our minds a few times throughout the process and Andy was always accommodating.
When the projects were finished, we again sat down with Andy to go over the final figures. He was within a few dollars of the original estimate (not counting the add-ons of course). He told us that he would check back with us in a few months and fix any concerns we had and for us to call if needed before he returned. Andy Holmes is without a doubt the best person you could get to do your construction work.

My wife and I are thoroughly enjoying the screened-in back porch that Holmes by Design built for us almost two years ago. We have been able to spend time on the porch for about ten months out of the year. We particularly enjoy some of the features that they suggested that we incorporatedinto the design of the porch. For instance, the vaulted ceiling that gives us more light and airflow than what we were originally envisioning, as well as the screen system they suggested - that has worked out extremely well. Also, we enjoy the gas fireplace because it extends the time that we can spend on the porch during some of the colder months of the year. And best of all, your estimate for the project was something we thought we could afford - and the total project actually came in below budget, so that was an additional thing to celebrate. We are thankful for your great ideas, your professionalism, and the care and skill that you put into our porch - it has enhanced our outdoor living experience.

Building a forever home is a very personal endeavor. My husband and I did not want to work with just any builder. We had worked with Andy on our first house when he was still with Ole South. He was the project manager for that house, and we really enjoyed working with him. So when we found out he had started his own company we called him immediately!
Andy not only brings a vast knowledge base about constructing a house, he also brings an artistic touch to every aspect of the house making it an unbelievable home. He was able to listen to every ‘hair-brained’ idea we had and mold it into this amazing house that I get to come home to everyday (I’m still pinching myself).
In our first meeting we met the team at Holmes by Design. At first I was not convinced that a team could do what I had in mind. I thought they would not see the vision. I was totally wrong! Johnny is a very hands-on project manager. He has been with us every step of the way, making sure that we are comfortable and the subs have done what they were tasked to do. Laura, there are no words to describe how much she means to my husband and I. She has gone out of her way to keep us up to date on everything and her checklists are awesome! Doug was on the ball from the start with our budget and keeping us on track. There is not one person on this team that out shines the others, but this team outshines any other team out there! There is absolutely no way we would every build or renovate anything without calling Holmes by Design!
Andy Holmes is doing something different in home building and people are noticing. It’s almost like being on one of those television shows where the finished design blows the home owner away. I felt like I was on one of those shows with Andy. The only difference was I never saw a camera crews, rather work crews who understood the timeline and the budget.
If you want to have one of those “blown away” moments like people experience on television – do what I did. Call Andy Holmes.

For many people, a garage door is located in one area: the garage. However, recently there has been a new trend developing that gives garage doors a new purpose and location. Now the traditional vinyl garage doors have been given a glass makeover and open up to allow people not into the garage, but to places like a patio or even a pool! The modern trend has grown so popular that businesses are adopting the idea to host events such as live music sessions and more. By simply repurposing a common mechanic for something completely different gives a more fun and exciting feel to the home and overall experience.
While this makes a great addition to homes, it is wise to take a step back and consider all the benefits of having the glass garage door before having it installed. Take a look at both the pros and cons of having an industrial glass garage door placed in your custom home today.
As stated above, adding a glass garage door inside your home is quickly becoming the latest trend. Having this desirable feature in your own home can increase not only the appearance of your home but the value as well. You can even boost the value further by having the door insulated!
With one of your walls completely taken down to essentially be replaced by a giant glass door, you will be sure to receive plenty of natural light into your home. For many, this is an added bonus and can be considered very pleasant. In some cases, the extra sunlight can even be considered as beneficial to your health! On top of that, when you roll up your door, you will have direct access to fresh air. Not to mention the beautiful view of the sun rising would make for the perfect morning!
It’s not a typical occurrence to look up from washing dishes only to see a live musical event only a few feet away. However, with the glass garage door installed inside your home, you can! You can now host special events in style that will have the entire neighborhood talking.
Although repurposing something by placing it in a different location can be fun and exciting, it can also be tricky for your contractor. Installing a garage door in a non-typical location may not be a simple task, which could run the risk of construction problems. To add on top of that, depending on the location of your door, you may also be facing the possibility of having a higher utility bill from all the added airflow.
When opening the door to the outdoors, you risk the chances of letting in bugs and debris into your home. Not to mention, if the garage door is not put down, you could have some uninvited guests roam inside.
Although glass doors look very beautiful, it may not provide the best protection from outsiders, animals, dangerous weather, and more. Before installing your glass garage doors, make sure that you are covered with your insurance company in case something were to ever happen to you and/or your home.
At Holmes by Design, we are very familiar with not only how to install glass garage doors, but also the best place to put them.
