Home additions have become a great alternative for expanding families that do not have the means to relocate or love their current home and neighborhood yet need the additional space. There are many different types of additions and each one is unique to the home. After analyzing every aspect of the home such as lot coverage, roof lines and possible foundation options, we discuss the needs of the family and their goals for the new space. Some families look to create a great room where the entire family can enjoy some time together in a less formal area than a living room. Others add a large enough space, also known as a mother/daughter suite, to create a private suite for an elder family member with their own private bedroom, kitchenette and living room.
