Room Additions to Expand Your Home
“I love my lot, but the house is just too small”
“We love where we are, but we just don’t have enough room.”
“I want a bigger kitchen, but there isn’t any room inside to expand it.”
Room Addition Design and Avoiding “The Box” Look
Whether you want to expand an existing room or add completely independent spaces, your room addition project will impact more than just your interior space. There are exterior architectural considerations as well, which must be part of your design planning. If you’ve ever seen a “box” addition, stuck on the side of a house with no rhyme or reason, then you know what the wrong kind of addition looks like.
Our goal for any addition project is to make it look seamless with the rest of your home. It takes a little more planning and a lot more skill, but the result is an addition that not only adds space to your home, but adds to its architectural character as well.
Foundations – To Dig or Not to Dig
If you’re expanding the footprint of your home, then a crawlspace or basement foundation will be part of the scope of work for your project. However, there are other ways to expand your living space that may not require digging up your yard.
First option: Going up. If your home’s foundation will support it, adding second floor spaces over your existing footprint can be an efficient way to create en suite, bedroom, or bath additions.
Another option: capturing under-used outdoor space. If there are existing outdoor spaces under roof at your home (screened porch, patio, sunroom, garage, etc.), chances are good all or part of them can be converted into finished interior space.
