Johnson and his wife, Erika, say that the Frontgate furnishings and accessories strategically placed throughout the home's interior and exterior are appropriate to the setting, and help to bring authenticity to the period look. Other finishing touches include 3" wide wood blinds that give a plantation feel to all the interior windows, and poplar stained wood doors on the main level.

Four Generations of Family History and a New Focus

Beginning in 1908 with his great-grandfather, Johnson's family has been in the real estate and building business throughout the Atlanta area. He learned the essentials of the custom homebuilding business from his father who helped transform the look of '50s and '60s Atlanta architecture into the more traditional styles we see today.

Since the 1980s, Johnson has taken the building business to a new level, becoming a major name in new home construction. But in recent years, his focus has expanded to include a passion for recreating and reconstructing historic residences. His list of projects in this genre is impressive, and includes several high-profile Atlanta area homes.

Johnson notes that "Many clients are choosing to restore, renovate, or upgrade their homes. I think we excel in this type of work largely because our ability to recreate the past authentically. Many of these homes were originally built in a classic period architectural style, and our research in historic, time-honored architecture enables us to literally reconstruct the past here in the present."

Giving Back

Johnson views the building business as an opportunity to make a difference in the community. In 2007, Johnson undertook a massive 2-year renovation of a West Conway estate originally built as the Neiman Marcus Southern Accents Magazine "Holiday House for AID Atlanta", and featured in a 1-hr. HGTV Christmas feature. In addition, many of his homes have been sold to raise funds for charities including the American Diabetes Association, Georgia Transplant Foundation, Heartline Ministries, and Child Kind. Deane has also been involved with an inner-city development group dedicated to training the homeless so they may become productive members of society.

Crafting enduring historic architecture for future generations is both a passion and a vocation for Deane Johnson. His creations, whether old or new, have become assets not only to the owners but also to Atlanta and the Southeast.
