BENEFITS OF BUILDING A HOME ADDITION
March 3, 2016
Home additions can be complex. The General can handle all the details.
Building an addition to your home can deliver real benefits. The extra space that it provides and the lasting value it creates often make an addition the right decision. However, addition projects can have logistical, structural and architectural issues to be addressed and can require the involvement of zoning authorities, utility companies, and other third parties. Let us manage all the details. Our team is experienced in designing, planning and building side, rear, second-story and other additions, so you can give your home extra space and tangible, added value.
TYPES OF ADDITIONS
FIRST FLOOR ADDITIONS
If you are looking to expand your kitchen or family room, or to reconfigure and enlarge the living space of your home, consider a first floor addition. By enlarging existing space, you can have the features you want – such as a gourmet kitchen or new powder room – while staying in your existing home. Clients also use first floor additions to add new rooms, such as a home office, media room, three-season room or an extra bedroom.
SECOND STORY ADDITIONS
We can take an older, one-story home and convert it into a modern, two-story residence. This is a great way to create a get into a much bigger home for less money. Often, older homes have their living space and two or three bedrooms all on one floor. By removing the roof, we can go up a full level, moving the bedrooms upstairs, and converting all the first floor space into new living space. These kinds of additions have a dramatic impact, and can often double the size of the original property.
If you need more space on both floors of your home – for example, more living space downstairs and an extra bedroom and bath upstairs – a two-story addition may be right for you. These large additions add a new wing to your home, providing you the extra square footage you want to meet your family’s needs.
NEW SPACE OVER THE GARAGE
The space over your garage is a great place to add space to your home. Often, adding living space over the garage is very cost-effective, because much of the structure is already in place. You can add another bedroom, bathroom or upstairs playroom, or perhaps you want a brand-new master suite. Adding a luxurious master bedroom to your home can be one of the best ways to increase your home’s value. More than just added space, a custom-designed master bedroom suite is both a sanctuary and one of the two major areas that future buyers will value most.
