Home additions are a great way to expand your living space. There are many different ways you can do this. Whether you’re deciding to build a place for guests to stay, or a garage to park your car in the winter, we can help you with all the planning and construction.
There are many different benefits to adding an addition to your home. Some of these benefits include:
Increasing the value of your home – Local real estate agents can make an estimate of the value of your home before and after home additions. If you plan on someday relocating, this will allow you to be able to ask a higher price.
You don’t have to buy a new house – Home additions allow you the benefit of getting a new “place,” but without going through the stress of selling your current home, buying a new home, and paying a higher mortgage
Reducing the risk of damage – If you take on a project of this proportion yourself, there’s a good chance you may make a mistake. We have the expertise to not only construct home additions, but also to help you through the zoning issues and any other issues you might have.
Adhering to a budget – When we come out to give you an estimate, we can also come up with a plan that meets your budget requirements.
For any major home improvement project, you should really consider hiring a contractor. We are skilled at what we do.
If you think a home addition is out of reach, we can help you attain your goal. If you don’t have the property space, because you live in an urban area or in a close neighborhood, we can do vertical additions instead of a horizontal addition. We can add another floor to your house. If you don’t know where you might add a horizontal addition to your house, we can come out and help you plan the perfect addition. It’s our job to make sure that you’re happy with the way we do home additions.
Drawing up your own plan can be a helpful way to make sure that we know what you want. Once we know what you want, we can help you to get it. Here are some tips for drawing up plans for home additions:
Consider the amount of space you want your addition to be – If you’re just building one room, you may already know the dimensions of the room you want. Measure the furniture you already have in your house. This will help you decide how big you want your new addition to be, based on the furniture you want to put inside your new addition.
Consider where you want your addition – Of course you have to take into account that you need to add you addition on a part of your property where it won’t interfere with property lines, power lines, trees, etc. You also need to consider what room or hallway you want your addition to be built off of. Home additions are a permanent part to your home; you don’t want a kitchen coming off of your master bathroom.
Utilize tools to draw up your plan – If you want to draw up a plan to scale, you might think about using graph paper and measuring devices. There are also computer programs, some of them free, in which you can make up a plan as well as plan the interior decorating of your home addition.
Of course, we can help you with any of these steps. Adding a room to your home can be as personalized by you as you want it to be.
