Wow, what a great area we live in! I may be biased, but if someone would have told me that I could live anywhere in the world when I was young to build decks, I believe I would have said Georgia, specifically Northeast Georgia. What area of the country can beat the climate, the resources (ie pine lumber and materials), and the people for outdoor construction? The truth is that I’m originally from the Midwest and asked myself that very question many years ago. And it’s the reason I’m here today.

For many years, Tailor Decks was a leading deck builder for the Atlanta area, in addition to Northeast Georgia. Also a great area, Atlanta grew and our business flourished. But because of our location out of Stathem, Georgia, it was challenging to drive that far away on a daily basis. In addition to the actual work, we also did a lot of driving for county permits, etc. A couple of years ago, we decided to focus on Athens and the surrounding areas instead. (I have many deck builder colleagues in Atlanta who continue to build great decks over there.)

The refocus has been great for us. We can spend more of our time on design, material acquisition and actual building as opposed to time spent out on the road. And at the end of the day, we get to spend time with my area customers and friends. If you love UGA or Falcons football, that’s really special. But
if not, that’s ok 🙂
