Bursting at the seams is no fun. You can get your much-needed new space without leaving your current home by going up or expanding out. Briggs Renovations Inc. can take you from dreams and ideas through to the final build phase of the addition process.
If you are stuck in a too-small home, moving into a larger one is not always possible. Moving may be too expensive, too disruptive, or perhaps you’re in love with your current neighbourhood. In any case, we understand that the benefits of staying in your current home outweigh the cons. Fortunately, there is another solution that comes in the form of a home addition. What if you could remodel the bungalow into a multi-storey home that would fit your ever expanding family? Add a family room over the garage? Push the kitchen out into the backyard? Not only do home additions make sense financially, they can also significantly raise the overall value of your home.
Here are some of the possible improvements you can make to your home, when your current space is not enough:
Second Floor Addition
When your one storey home is lacking in bedrooms and leg room, you can consider adding space overtop without expanding into the plot. A second storey addition is one of the most extensive home additions you can make, coming just short of completely tearing down and re-building your existing home, but the benefits and added space can be outstanding.
Above Garage Room Addition
If you have a free-standing garage, or one which has unused space above it, consider a garage room addition. The extra room will be large, depending on your garage size, and can often be divided into more than one room. Depending on the structure of your home, you might be able to add that extra bedroom for the kids who are getting too old to share, a home office, extra storage and anything else you might need. A separate standing structure can be turned into a private living space for guests or family members who could use the privacy.
Rear, Side, or Front Home Addition
If there is unused land on any side of your home that you are willing to build over, consider using it to make extra space. A home addition could create an extra room, or expand an already existing room within your current structure.
Maybe your kitchen is just too tiny for the entire family, or maybe you just don’t like that there is no room to place a bar. A room addition or expansion could increase the space you have available within a particular room, at the expense of another area or the land outside your house.
As you can see, there are a multitude of options you can explore when looking at expanding your home. Home additions are a less invasive process than moving, and allow you to expand your space in much needed ways without sacrificing your current home. Consider a home expansion when you need more room to live, but are unwilling to sell your current home.
