Building an Addition
There are many circumstances that occur after buying a home that influence the amount of space necessary to live comfortably in a home. Changes in lifestyle or a growing family are a few of many reasons that could directly affect the amount of space needed. When space becomes an issue there are really only two options: buy a new home or add an addition. With limited choices, adding an addition to your home is your best option. Almost every homeowner has dreamed of having more space in their home and when it becomes a necessity, it’s time to stop dreaming and start remodeling. Building an addition is starting from scratch, the possibilities are limitless; you may already own your dream home! An addition will improve your daily life, adding functionality and convenience to your home. Maybe you have been considering adding on to your home, but aren’t sure if it’s a good idea? Here are some good reasons why other homeowners decided to build onto their homes.
Creating Your Dream Home; Your home can become the one you always dreamed of with a custom addition. If you’re content with your current location an addition allows you to incorporate modern features into your design transforming your dreams home into reality.
Enlarging Existing Spaces; As a home owner I am sure you would agree that there is at least one room in your home that you’ve wished it were larger. Adding on to an existing space is often the solution. Are you considering remodeling your kitchen? A Kitchen expansion is a common reason for a home addition. When you are in the process of remodeling an area of the home, it is the perfect time to add on additional space especially if they are adjacent areas and combining the two projects into one could save you some money.
Less Expensive than Buying a New Home; if love your existing home and neighborhood but need more space, then building an addition may be a solution. Adding a room to your home for an extra bedroom or bath is less expensive than buying a new home.
Entertaining and Recreation; Is your home comfortable for day to day living yet seem inadequate when entertaining? Homeowners will often add on, to accommodate the types of entertaining they do. For some people, this may mean a game area, a sunroom, or enlarging the dining area. An addition will provide the additional space required to set up & organize while entertaining and will enhance your everyday life.
Increase Resale Value; A quality built addition will enhance the market value of your home. Adding a master suite, a sunroom or even an attached garage to your home will add to its demand in the real estate market.
Outdoor Living Space; An enclosed patio that allows you to enjoy the outdoors while protecting you from the elements is something that people enjoy. The climate in Virginia makes these areas functional virtually all year long. A Patio Enclosure often becomes the most popular area for the family and they are great entertaining.
Create Privacy; Creating another bedroom so that children do not have to share a bedroom is another common reason for building an addition onto a home. A home that seemed sufficient for small children can suddenly seem too small when those children become teenagers. As the children are getting older so are mom and dad, sometimes the best solution is to add a 1st floor master suite. Adding a 1st floor master gives you added seclusion, provides separation and privacy for the kids as well. Ideally your new suite is designed with your aging in mind.
Aging in Place Design and Build; Let’s face it; we’re not getting any younger. Most people dreamed of watching their kids grow up and move on so that they would have the home to themselves. The reality is; you love your home, the neighbors, and even the conveniences of your location. But your home with its stairs, narrow door openings & hallways, cramped kitchen and baths make it virtually unlivable.
Building a master suite, redesigning and enlarging your kitchen are the perfect solutions to aging in place. Adding onto your home makes it simple to design a space that will accommodate your needs.
