Hi Marcy, welcome to the forum.
Considering this is a DIY site, most of us here would likely be making our own!
Weather and winter storage would be a concern to me as to what type to build or buy.
Buy too cheap, and your guests end up on the ground.
Buy too expensive, and you have to re-mortgage your home!
Make your own... neither is a problem!

i think the best overall value is cast aluminum. It's sturdy, relatively inexpensive, comes in a variety of styles, and is pretty much maintenance free. Because you are in Hotlanta, it might be a little harder to find closeout deals, but take a look around, especially at the big box chain stores and wholesale clubs. If you are not picky, there are some real deals to be had on patio furniture, grills, lawnmowers, etc this time of year

Don't rule out online store, especially Amazon. They run some great deals on patio furniture this time of year to get this stuff out of their warehouses, and they usually have a pretty good selection, whereas the stores have a much more limited selection. Plus you can read the reviews and see what others think about the stuff before you take the plunge
Those who can, do...
Those who can't criticize on the internet

Hi Marcy,
I'm new to this and not sure if I can do this or not. I have been in patio retail and the patio and deck service business for a long time and I have been building high quality out adirondack furniture for several years. I have moved into the polywood type furniture.
