Everyone needs more space, can’t seem to get enough of it, and would love to have more space at a moment’s notice.
Home addition ideas to expand your space
If your roots are firmly planted in your current home, moving to a new house might not be viable. But there’s another option that’s the best of both worlds: a home addition to your existing house.
For many families, a custom addition might be exactly what they need. They can continue to live and grow in their current dwelling while adding some much-needed space. An extra room or two can make a world of difference for some people.
That could mean a new guest bedroom for family members to stay over. Or added space for that growing child who prefers to get their own room instead of sharing with a little sibling. It’s all possible with a home addition from Pioneer Craftsmen.
Will putting a home addition add value to my house?
The truth is, how you use your home now differs vastly compared to several years ago. You might have outgrown some aspects that were fine enough when you moved in, but now that space doesn’t fit your family’s needs anymore.
Invest in your space to make it work best for you, a custom home addition is one of the best investments you can make in your home. Not only will it make the house more livable for you, but that makes it more livable and enticing for the next owners of the home when the time comes to sell.
Large kitchens with modern amenities are very attractive to buyers, as are updated bathrooms. People now spend a bigger portion of time in the kitchen area than they did a decade ago. With an increased focus on entertaining, kitchens are often the hub for most activity in modern homes.
I want to put an addition to my house, where do I start?
Now that you’ve decided on a custom addition, let’s take the first step to your dream home addition. The best place to begin is to do an audit of how you currently use the space, and your addition wish list. What are the biggest pain points in your current space? What can be improved? And how do you envision the new space working best for you?
Budget is a big factor and should be front and centre when considering a home addition from an addition contractor like Pioneer Craftsmen. Meet with your financial advisor to see what you can afford to invest into an addition and what makes the most sense for your family.
Speak to your family and friends about their experiences renovating. Find out what they liked and didn’t like about the process and how they wish things could have been improved. You can use that information to ensure your process goes smoothly and factor all that information into your decision about your custom home addition.
Finding the right home addition contractor is crucial, and not everyone will have the same wish list for their project. Interview to a few contractors to get a sense of which one can make your vision come to life. After all, this is your dream project, so make sure you are comfortable with contractor you decide to work with on the design and build of your home addition
The cost of the project varies on the complexity and the amount of features required for the home addition. The price tag on a kitchen and bathroom addition will cost more due to the added fixtures and appliances required for the makeover.
