Let's Design Something Amazing.

Wade Works approaches every project with the experience of a craftsman, the creativity of a designer, the awareness of a builder, the intuition of an architect, and the innovation of an engineer, to ensure that each plan is created with everything in mind and so that nothing is overlooked.  Utilizing our unique set of qualifications, we seek to educate our clients, create innovative spaces, and fabricate custom art and furniture that are the best representation of our client’s aspirations.   

After graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering from Georgia Tech, Chip moved on to earn his certification in residential construction while working for an Atlanta based home builder. Chip has been featured as a designer and host for countless shows on HGTV, DIY, CNN, CBS, and NBC where he has become known for his unique ability to utilize cutting edge materials, processes and authentic creativity to craft these large scale, multi-faceted projects.


Evelyn is our architecture and design project guru. She comes to Wade Works Creative with 25+ years of experience in residential interior design, new construction specifications and residential project management. Wanting to dive even deeper into residential design, she joined our team in November of 2018 and we couldn't be happier to have her on board as our Architecture and Design Project Manager.
Fun fact: Evelyn, her husband, Stefan and daughter, Livia love to travel.



Paul is another Ramlin' Wreck from Georgia Tech in the Wade Works family! He has been working with Chip and Wade Works Creative since the very first season of HGTV's Elbow Room. He has degrees in architecture from both Georgia Tech and Southern Tech (Kennesaw) and an additional certificate in city planning from Georgia Tech. Paul is a registered architect and also runs Hamby Architecture and Design.
Fun fact:. In his free time, Paul enjoys hiking and playing golf. He's even scored a hole in one!

"We had the great opportunity to work with Elbow Room for a kitchen/family space remodel. The space was transformed into a breathtaking retreat, like a luxury vacation resort. But the best part of the experience was working with Chip Wade and the amazing people on his Elbow Room crew. Seriously, they were so sweet and so much fun. It was the highlight of my family's experience. And as a parent I thought it was all pretty educational for my kids too.
Chip is a detailed guy. The artistry in our brick work is exceptional. It's the focal point of the house."

"Chip was very knowledgeable and relatable. Not only did he really know his stuff when it came to construction but he was such a natural in front of the camera that it made us feel comfortable and forget the cameras were even there! His design plan was absolutely genius and beyond unique! We LOVE our backyard."

"Chip Wade and his team were a huge help with our renovation flip. Chip came in and helped me pick out colors, designs, structural changes and told me what costly mistakes to avoid. I even used their team to sell the property. We made a great profit and the project turned out amazing."

-David S.

"When we left Atlanta, Chip evaluated our house prior to listing whether it was worth doing extensive renovations versus selling as is, and determining the ideal listing price. Then, based on Chip's advice, Pauli Wade and Jill Hensley sold my house (twice actually) very quickly--thankfully because some other homes in my neighborhood that went up for sale about the same time as ours, are still on the market."

-Annette B.

"This was a total transformation of our (previously hideous) backyard thanks to Chip Wade's visionary design team and Andy Batcheller's contracting and implementation craftsmanship! If you are looking for talented, respectful and meticulous partners on a home and/or yard renovation, we highly recommend both of these outfits...we couldn't be more thrilled with the results!"
