A home addition is a multi-room structure that’s built onto the side of your home. It can have specific purposes depending on how it’s designed and built, and it can be done either sparingly in a few weeks or a few days with a trusted contractor. Homeowners will often have home additions built to accommodate different needs and preferences, so it helps to know what you want for your home if you’re planning one this spring. Here are a few ideas to consider.
If you have an unused garage attached to your main home, you can easily have it renovated into a full living space with all the basic materials, such as flooring, walls and ceilings. This type of home addition won’t take too long to complete since the walls, foundation, concrete flooring, roof and other parts of the basic structure are already in place. But depending on the design, you might still need to add more plumbing especially if you’re installing a new bathroom. Additional ductwork may be needed as well for your HVAC system since garages normally don’t have a ventilation system installed.
A sunroom is essentially a supplemental living area built with prefabricated aluminum, windows and skylights. It’s designed to let in more natural light, which allows you to enjoy the view without having to go outdoors. It can be designed either as an open space connected to your main living area or a closed-off area from your main home. Just make sure that you work with a trusted professional in home remodeling if you want to ensure a successful sunroom construction for your home!
If you need more space on the ground floor area, consider building a bump-out. It is a type of home addition that’s built at the back part of your home and can be as big as the amount of free space you have in your backyard. Most bump-outs are just 3 feet wide and 10 to 12 feet long, and they’re designed for a walk-in closet to an additional tub, shower or a master bedroom. But if you want to add space for a kitchen island or an eat-in area in your kitchen, a bump-out can also be an ideal choice.
