A home addition, by definition, is the process of adding another room or building aside from the main house that was built originally. The add-on could be a second-story extension of your house, a shed on the ground floor for storing your tools, or a bigger garage where you can store your tools and/or another vehicle. Adding a different building or a second floor to your home is a big project, so it is only sensible that you hire a bunch of contractors for the job.
There are many different types of home additions. The most popular ones are as follows:
Two Story Extensions are designed to build an extra room for a house that is already wide enough, but could use some extra length or width. A two-storey extension can be built on any side of the house. The rooms inside a two-story extension depend on the size of the extension as well as the customer’s desires. Usually applicable for families who want to live together, but desire a private place of their own inside the house.
Second Story Extensions
Second Story Extensions are for customers whose homes need an extra floor for extra members of their family too. The contractors will remove the entire roof from the house. With careful planning, the second story extension is added on, followed by the roofing installation as well as the repair of HVAC, air, electrical, and anything else that had to be removed to put the extension in place. The design and size of the second-floor room will depend on the customer’s wishes.
In-law home additions are built onto any side of your home and are usually built to include a kitchenette, living room, master bedroom, closets, and a bathroom. These additions are not just one room being added to your house – they typically are meant for those who would like to up to double the size of their current home to accommodate an additional person(s).
Kitchen Extension Addition
Is your Kitchen too small? Kitchen Additions can add around 200 additional square feet to your kitchen, or any exterior wall of your existing home to function as a Room Addition. The existing roofing and siding will be matched to your existing home and a kitchen extension addition will be built on the exterior wall where your existing kitchen resides on a crawl space foundation.
