Atherton Estate Luxury Home by Markay Johnson Construction

Builder: Markay Johnson Construction

Project Details:
This uniquely American Shingle styled home boasts a free flowing open staircase with a two-story light filled entry. The functional style and design of this welcoming floor plan invites open porches and creates a natural unique blend to its surroundings. Bleached stained walnut wood flooring runs though out the home giving the home a warm comfort, while pops of subtle colors bring life to each rooms design. Completing the masterpiece, this Markay Johnson Construction original reflects the forethought of distinguished detail, custom cabinetry and millwork, all adding charm to this American Shingle classic.

Architect: John Stewart Architects
Photographer: Bernard Andre Photography

dimension between posts - great patio, what is your dimension between posts and it looks like you used double 2 x 12 for the beam...

Markay Johnson Construction
Thank you, the dimension was about 18' wide. The beams were a true 2"x12" beam and were doubled. Best, Markay Johnson Construction

Can you add a gabled cover over the back of an existing fireplace (current fireplace interior) - I am wanting to build an outdoor fireplace an put the back against the exterior brick of existing one an cover with gabled cover. Concerned that it might leak
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Markay Johnson Construction
You should contact a local contractor for more information on how to do this type of work correctly. You can install a gable as shown and it will not leak if installed correctly. Best, Markay Johnson Construction

I believe these pavers were purchased from Mississippi Brick Company. I do not know the color. A local material supply house should be able to match them. Best, Markay Johnson Construction

Is this fireplace a dual fireplace on the inside of the home?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The fireplace is not a duel unit. There is one dedicated to the exterior patio and one dedicated to the interior. Best, Markay Johnson Construction
