Restoration after a flood

"During a vacation in October 2010 one of a homeowner’s greatest fears became reality to my wife and me.  Upon our arrival, we discovered that a water service line for a downstairs toilet had leaked, flooding 85% of the first floor of our two story home. After making the required calls to our insurance company and the water removal service, I called our realtor and friend for a quality contractor to help us put our home and lives back to normal. Her recommendation was Ira Lacey and Lacey Custom Carpentry. We followed her recommendation and called Ira. Ira arrived the next day with his best subcontractor Chris. Upon their arrival and the subsequent initial meeting and planning session, we began to feel at ease and hopeful in no small part to Ira’s professionalism, obvious mastery of his trade, ability to plan, and his innate ability to understand his client. After almost three months of restoration work, words cannot express how happy we are with our restored home. Ira not only restored our home, it is now better than it was before the water leak. The list of repairs and items that were replaced is extensive, but everything is now better than before, from the paint to custom cabinetry. The craftsmanship now obvious throughout our first floor is simply amazing. Ira has a passion for his profession and it is obvious from project start to completion.  Ira’s craftsmanship and work ethic are unparalleled in our personal experiences of building two custom homes and renovating a condominium. To say it simply, we will use Ira and Lacey Custom Carpentry for every home renovation or change we wish to make in the future."

"Ira, Chris, and his subcontractors did a beautiful job at my house. My main project was renovating my master bath, installing a built in desk, planning and installing my laundry room shelving. I couldn't be any more impressed and pleased. Ira is a spectacular and innovative craftsman who is dependable, honest, punctual, very reasonably priced, considerate, a genuinely nice person, and cleans up like he was never here. Being in the design industry for 16 years, I am familiar with contracting/remodeling horror stories. Ira and his workers are quality contractors, and made my project completely painless. I would definitely use his services again and highly recommend him to anyone!"

Bathroom Renovations

"Lacey Custom Carpentry recently remodeled two bathrooms in our home and gave our rental property a face lift. In both instances, the work was top quality and reasonably priced. Lacey Custom Carpentry shows a dedication to making the customer happy -- something you definitely don't get with other contractors. I am certain we will call them for our next project."

Custom Built-Ins

"We used Ira as our main carpenter for a recent renovation of a 1926 bungalow in the Peachtree Hills area. Simply put, I couldn't be happier as a client. He's dependable, creative, honest, and most of all, a darn talented woodworker. In all, he helped us build a new master closet, a new pantry, a new threshold for a rotten back door, and new vanity for our bathroom. In most cases, he guided us on design ideas from conception to creation, and made sure our needs were being met every step of the way."

"We couldn't be happier with the work that Lacey Custom Carpentry did on our home. Ira went above and beyond to custom design our second floor up to every last little detail. Every aspect of the job was done right, and they warranty all of the work. Ira uses quality contractors, and we completely trusted them in our home. He kept us updated on everything he did, and he even came in at budget!! Ira was extremely professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. We wouldn't think about calling anyone else but Lacey Custom Carpentry in the future."

Kitchen Renovation

"It’s hard to believe a year has passed since Ira completed our renovation.  We absolutely love our kitchen, and not a day goes by that we are not grateful for Ira's superior workmanship!  It was a huge project, but he managed to complete it in record time, and with attention to every detail.  Ira is the ultimate professional and a true master of his craft.  Our kitchen is gorgeous!"

"Lacey Custom Carpentry and Ira Lacey are a homeowner's dream to remodeling and carpentry contractors. My wife and I have used Ira on several occasions and as my wife says "Every home needs an Ira." He is professional, courteous, on time (which is hard to find in Atlanta) and the quality of his work is always exceptional. We would recommend Lacey Custom Carpentry (and have on several occasions) to anyone looking for quality and service at a competitive price."

John Bianchi

Owner / Operator of

Residential Renaissance

"It's very difficult today to find a true craftsman that does old-world quality work.  Ira of Lacey Custom Carpentry is that craftsman.  No matter what the project, from rough framing to building cabinets and furniture, Ira gets it done right.  I worked on several projects with Ira in Connecticut before he relocated to Georgia and I still to this day tell people of his abilities.  I wish they'd hurry up and get that cloning process worked out so I can get an Ira back here to CT."

Custom Trim Work

"We were very pleased with the results that Lacey Custom Carpentry has provided us.  Not only did they do a great job with our crown molding, they were able to give us insight and guide us with the right choice of product to use.  The attention to detail is what beautifies our living and dining room.  If you're looking for professional and quality work, I would advise Lacey Custom Carpentry for the job."

"Ira Lacey is a rare breed in today's world where work ethic and keeping one's word seem to be a thing of the past.  Ira defies all of our preconceived notions, and underestimations of what we've all come to expect from people who don't live up to their word.  Not only is he the most talented carpenter I've worked with to date, he was also a joy to have in our home.  He's friendly, easy to work with, he shows up on time, he gets the job done, and he's clean!  He built several pieces of furniture for us, as well as some renovations, and we receive compliments on them regularly.  Ira exceeded all of our expectations, and we actually found ourselves missing him once he was gone.  I definitely plan on utilizing Ira in the future, and recommend him to anyone who will listen."
