New construction offers your family the unique opportunity to add space where you need it. Homeowners often opt to relocate to a new home only to find that they have more space, but the house still does not function as they would like. When you add on to your home, you can make the choices that are important like layout, size and style. You do not have to be at the mercy of the home market. And when you choose new construction over a move, you are making a smart investment in your home. By adding square footage to your property, you are increasing the resale value. Because the housing market has been so unstable, you may not be able to sell your house for what it is worth. So home additions can give you the space you need now and serve as an investment toward your future. Creating the Home You Want Your family is unique and your home should reflect that. You can add rooms exactly where you need them and re-imagine the layout of the existing property. If the current layout doesn’t function well, change it. Many families add bedrooms and bathrooms as necessities, while others expand their kitchens or add a home office, gym or theater as a luxury. Whether your new construction project is a want or a need, our 15 years of experience can handle it with expert care. Professional Certifications Because we are certified by Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (L.E.E.D.) Accredited Professional Organization and the American Institute of Architects, we are constantly seeking innovative new construction ideas and methods. We want to contribute to the community by building more environmentally friendly homes. We will work you to find great materials at great prices and design home additions that will make a difference in your life. At the end of the day, you will have a seamless addition that seems like it was always part of your house. Building Out If you are willing to sacrifice some of your outdoor space, building out could be the option for your family. Whether you add just a couple of rooms or expand the whole side of your home, adding the square footage on the outside can allow for major changes on the inside. When you push out a wall with new construction, you have made space inside your home for all sorts of remodeling opportunities. We can: Expand your kitchen to create a larger area that is easily accessible from the deck for entertaining. Add an in-law suite that will give your loved ones their own personal space when they come to visit. We can even add a private entrance so that the space could be used as an income property. Create a sound-proof music studio for avid musicians. Build a home gym, office or theater to cater to your family’s unique needs. Second-Story New Construction Home Additions When you add a second story during new construction, you add to your home a level of privacy not quite possible with one floor. Homeowners will often choose to add a mother-in-law suite to allow private space for visiting family members. Others will create a home office or a hobby room. What works best for your family is exactly what we will do. Because the privacy is greater on the second story, you have the option to make the second floor entirely for bedrooms and bathrooms and use the first floor for entertaining and living space. The separation is beneficial for families made up of early risers and night owls. No more worrying someone will wake up the rest of the family. Our new construction services are designed to make the home remodeling experience pleasant for our clients. We strive to communicate clearly about what is happening on their project from day to day. Through open communication, we can ensure that the progress being made is satisfactory. We want to be your partner in this life-changing experience.
