Peter Michelson CEO & Owner

As a fourth generation construction professional, Peter grew up helping out with the family business in the Boston area, and later worked as a carpenter for various remodeling companies in San Francisco and the Hudson Valley region.

After graduating from the University of Michigan with a BA in History, Peter spent time working in San Francisco for several firms on a variety of construction projects, ranging from high rises to historic restorations to remodeling projects. Next came extensive travel in Asia and teaching English in Taiwan. Peter returned to the U.S. to earn a Masters degree in education and became a teacher at the Waldorf School of Atlanta.

In 2001, Peter “retired” from teaching and rolled his family background, Waldorf education and work experience into a new endeavor, Renewal Design-Build an Atlanta home remodeling company. As a business owner, Peter has built Renewal Design-Build into one of Atlanta’s premier home renovation companies. Since 2001, Renewal Design-Build has completed hundreds of home remodeling projects and earned numerous awards for design, craftsmanship and customer service.

In addition to running Renewal Design-Build, Peter is a graduate of the Leadership DeKalb Class of 2011, the 2014-2015 President of the Rotary Club of Decatur, a board member of The Waldorf School of Atlanta, and an Advisory Board member of the Lifecycle Building Center.
