Is your family growing? Are you quickly running out of space inside your current home?
It is typically cheaper to build an room addition than to buy a new home that would be comparable to your existing home with an addition.
The Hampton Roads area has many well and established neighborhoods. Moving involves a leaving the many things that you value such as your neighborhood, your neighbors, and schools. Then there is going through the process of finding a new home and still further selling you current home. Additions are a great way to remain in your present home and the neighborhood you enjoy, while creating the larger home that your way of life demands.
Home Additions can come in many forms including but not limited to the following. If you have a design idea feel free to contact us to discuss your idea.:
- Second Story Additions
- Sunroom Additions
- Family/Gathering Room
- Room Expansions (Master Suites, Kitchens, Bathrooms)
- In-Law Suites
Depending on the situation, building a second story addition can sometimes be less expensive than building out since there is no need for foundation building. This amount to saving yard space and existing lanscaping. Second story home additions are usually bedroom and bathroom additionsbut can also include nurseries, home offices, and guest rooms. Homeowners with an expanding family (children, in-laws, parents) may have the most to gain by using a second story addition. Second story home additions can add bedrooms and at least one full bathroom to the home. Crawl spaces and a new attic can increase storage space and possibly free up space in the main living area. A second story addition can also be used for a home office to provide a quiet and secluded area from which a homeowner can work.
A sunroom is an enclosed porch specifically built to let sunlight and air into your home. Sunroom additions can be built off an existing exterior wall .Sunrooms can have large floor-to-ceiling windows to provide homeowners with an unobstructed outdoor view. They are often used as bonus relaxation rooms. A sunroom addition can also be used as an extended living room.
A family room can provide abundant space for living and can include many amenities such as a fireplace, skylights, a built-in entertainment center or a wet bar. They are a great way to add room for your family to relax. Family Room Additions can be built on the exterior wall of your home and can even be designed to extend your current family room.
If your current rooms don't meet your lifestyle expanding out the room is another possibility. Room expansions can be done either by removing existing interior walls or by attaching the extension to your exterior wall.
Popular choice for room expansion include:
Kitchen expansions - a kitchen expansion can add the necessary room to provide room to completely remodel an otherwise small kitchen and to provide additional working area.
Bathroom expansion - a bathroom expansion can provide the necessary space to have double vanities, separate bath and shower areas, and or an enlarged tub. It can also be used to create the master bath of your dreams or even a guest bath added to an existing guest room.
Master suites - expanding a current master suite can provide homeowners with the needed room to enlarge the master bath, provide additional closet spance, and or provide additonal room for a sitting area or a reading nook.
Smaller rooms can be extended with a "bump out"' to expand a breakfast nook, an existing bath to provide more room, or a laundry/ mudroom to make a smaller space usable. Bump outs can also provide an area of privacy for homeowners by providing a sheltered area where the bump out is placed.
In-law suites can be built onto any portion of your home, and can be built to include amenities such as a kitchenette, living room, master bedroom, closets and a bathroom. In-law suites can also be built with accessibility in mind to provide ease of access for the resident.
Garage additions can be made to replace an existing garage, or add a place to store vehicles and other items in a home that otherwise doesn't have a garage. Typically, garages are built adjacent to the house using an existing exterior wall but can also be built as a seperate building of its own.
Garage additions can include adding a room above your existing garage. This area can be used for additional living areas such as a bedroom, home office, recreation room, or a personalized home theater.
Other options include converting you existing garage into a usuable living area can be an economical way to gain additional living space or adding a dormer to an existing room over the garage can add valuable space to an already cramped area.
