Creating functional, livable and beautiful home additions
There are so many reasons to consider adding on to your existing home or a home you’re considering purchasing. Adding a room or expanding the size of your home is an exciting project and the possibilities are endless. Add an attached garage with or without living space above it, add another floor, expand the attic space, or build out and add on a dining room, family room, kitchen, bathroom, or guest bedroom. Adding an addition to your home can increase square footage, increase property value, and bring more comfort and joy to your home life but it’s important to work with an experienced home addition contractor.
Home Addition Planning & Preparation
Before starting a home addition project, it’s important that you plan ahead. This includes working with a licensed general contractor to help with accessing the possibilities of your home, obtaining building permits, planning, preparation, and design as well as setting a budget and timeline for the project.
How about your existing infrastructure? Your addition may require an upgrade to your HVAC system, the plumbing, and your current electrical service. Some items may need upgrading whereas others may require replacement.
Home addition Design Considerations
When designing a home addition, there are many factors to consider. First you will want to consider working with an architect and an interior designer to help bring your vision to life. You should decide whether you want the new space to blend in with the existing architecture of your home or stand out as something new and unique. How will the addition fit into the established traffic flow? Will you have to change the entrances and egress? These are all important factors to consider with your architect, interior designer, and general contractor.
Have the right home addition contractor by your side
When it comes to adding an addition to your home, having the right home addition contractor on your side can make a world of difference. An experienced and reliable general contractor can ensure that your project is completed within the desired timeline and budget, while also providing invaluable insight into how different design elements may affect the success of the project. They can provide feedback on things like aesthetic appeal, structural integrity, energy efficiency, and overall functionality. Plus, they will be able to advise you on obtaining any necessary permits and other legal documents that may be required in order to begin building.

Project 0251 consisted of a three-season room addition with a storage room below. The ground floor walls of the three seasons addition were veneered with natural stone and capped with a bluestone water table. This detail ended up being carried throughout the existing foundation as well. The project also included a new deck and patio area capped off with a complete landscape renovation including plantings, turf, irrigation and lighting.
