The Gross’ were on a mission to plant their family roots in the Decatur neighborhood in a home that would not only provide the perfect setting for their growing family, but reflect the fresh, creative atmosphere of the area. The original home was built in 1980 and, according to Jenna, left a lot to be desired. The game changer was the backyard, with the amount of space the lot offered Jenna and Caleb couldn’t pass it up.
After purchasing the home, Jenna drew up the floor plan on a napkin and handed it off to the architect, Adam Stillman, who made their dream a reality along with Thrive Homes in Atlanta. The renovations began in 2011 and were completed in March 2012. Jenna and Caleb were involved in every aspect of their home’s design, from the hardwood flooring and paint selection, down to the grout color.
