Adding living space is more popular than ever. People start their new room addition projects fully knowing the benefits of adding to their existing home vs buying a new one.
Have you outgrown your present, outdated home? Before giving up on your current home consider the possibilities of a room addition.
Special new features offer great opportunities to generate architectural drama, particularly if the rooms are on different levels. Soaring ceilings, cantilevered balconies, clerestory windows, and cascading staircases can give your house a whole new focus—and a new dimension of visual excitement
Attach to one wall of your existing house or wrap around the corner? Should it be a direct extension of your house or more like a freestanding structure connected by a transition space? We can engineer the room addition that not only suits your current home but also fits your lifestyle and your families needs.
Think broadly in the early stages of planning multi-room additions, it needn’t be just a one-level, boxed-in appendage; it can take any of several basic configurations, depending on the limitations of your budget and your building site. Should you build entirely on one level or would the new addition function more efficiently—and fit in more seamlessly—if it contained two or three levels?
From bedroom additions, the building of a new master bedroom with a large bathroom and walk-in closet to a ground level bedroom addition when all of the bedrooms are upstairs. It can accentuate who you are and what you want in your home. Some large scale home additions do much more than simply overcome shortcoming; they shift a house’s focus to a new area or type of space and changes its personality inside and out. This is particularly likely if you’re expanding and revamping the living or family areas of the house—main-floor spaces that set the tone of the household and provide a backdrop for various types of gatherings. It’s common for a multi-room addition to dramatically alter a home’s main axis, shifting everyday activities from the front rooms to the new spaces in back.
A new family room gives a house extra stretch; a full-size laundry area, a mudroom, a first-floor powder room, and a home office makes a home function as if it’s a different house altogether.
