Home Addition Benefits

There are many reasons to consider a home addition. Whether you’re looking to add value or just enjoy some elbow room, these are some important things to think about:

  • More functional space – The goal of any home addition is to create more room. The goal of an expertly designed and executed addition, however, is to make every inch of your new space work for your needs and fit your tastes. Our team works with you to establish what’s possible and to create detailed designs for your consideration. 
  • Increase home value – Increasing square footage is a great way to add value to your home. If the main objective in taking on a home addition is to make your home more valuable on the housing market, take some time to research what kind of addition would do the most to increase resale value. Examine the existing space, floorplan, appliances, and your property to determine what direction will have the biggest impact on ROI. Invest in a home addition, bathroom renovation, kitchen remodel, or a comprehensive renovation that includes more than one room. 
  • Add a guest room – Welcome friends and family in comfort. Offer guests their own space to make their stay more enjoyable for them and more convenient for your family. That extra room may fulfill other needs in between visitors as well, perhaps serving as a gym, yoga studio, or home office. 
  • New needs, same home – Stay where you always wanted to be, even if your needs have changed. From a growing family to new interests, a home addition offers the chance to shape a new space to be exactly what you want, without the headache of moving. 

Home Addition Options

There are three main types of home additions to consider: 

  • Build Out – A build out expands your home’s footprint at the ground level. This option often depends on how close the proposed addition is to your property line. 
  • Build Up – This option builds vertically on top of your current structure to extend an existing upper floor or create a new level entirely. 
  • Detached Build – A detached build is a completely new structure that isn’t attached to the main home at all. Like a build out, this option is often dependent on the size of your property. 

We can help you decide which type of home addition is the right fit for your property, as well as share any local restrictions on home addition construction.
