How Can You Increase the Square Footage of Your Home?
Although one of the biggest home addition projects, adding a second story can add significant value and square footage to your home. Just be sure to check that your home’s structure and foundation can support this addition.
A Room Over Your Garage
If you’re looking for a project to keep your home and daily life from being disrupted too much, adding a room over your garage may be the perfect option. This versatile space can be used as pretty much anything, including a guest room, family or game room, or even an apartment that you can rent out for extra income.
Finish Your Basement
A lot of times basements are left to be used for random items that have accumulated over the years. But this versatile space is valuable and can provide great ROI when remodeled properly. If you’ve been neglecting your basement, it may be time to revisit all of the options you have for using this space.
Master Suite Addition
Quite the popular upgrade to homes nowadays, adding a master suite to your home can really increase the convenience and comfort of your home. Features can include an outdoor space, walk-in closet, master bath, and even a breakfast area.
If you are looking for an addition to allow you to enjoy the outdoor view and lighting, it might be time to add a sunroom. You can enclose an already existing porch to create a sunroom or build one from scratch accessible from the house with heating and air conditioning to make it like a second living room.
