H3 Educational Feature: How to Plan for an Addition or other Large Projects

Planning an Addition or other Large Projects

An insight on how what your overall expectations should be when starting your project

Adding on to your home or adding a 2nd floor is a great way to drastically increase the square footage in some older homes. These projects take significant planning and often involve updating many mechanical systems. Creating an addition that works structurally, blends in seamlessly from the exterior and ties in and fits with the interior space proportionally and stylistically can be a challenge.

SMALL ADDITION

While no addition is a small project, there are smaller additions that can be created. Many homeowners are looking to stay within their existing home but add that one space that is missing. By adding a mudroom, office space, or even extending out your family room or kitchen, you can drastically change the flow and overall look of the home. These additions are created on a crawlspace foundation.

You can also consider doing a whole remodel without an addition. An entire home can be changed within its current framing. Whether you’re knocking down walls or adding new walls, we can look at changing the interior footprint to maximize the space for your needs. Open floor plans are still very popular and can create a whole new home within your existing house.

LARGE ADDITION

Larger additions are created to drastically increase the square footage of your home. A full shell addition creates enough space for three rooms and a bathroom. From there the additions planning becomes more complex as the additions become larger. Our highly experienced team is well equipped to create the perfect addition for your home.
