Helping You Redesign Your Home
In some cases, the functionality/layout of your home or just the overall size of a home is not meeting your family’s needs any longer. Walker Homes and Remodeling can help redesign your home, so it meets your needs. Usually, the best way to accommodate it is by adding a new room. But another way to create more space is to repurpose an existing space into a living space.
There are many ways to increase your square footage. You can build up by adding a second floor, or you can build out and add a room by adding a section of the house that attaches through an opening in an outside wall. You can also convert one kind of room to another kind of room better suited to meet your needs. You can build a detached garage or workshop. All options qualify as a house addition.
CONVENTIONAL HOUSE ADDITION
A conventional house addition is a multi-room structure built onto the side of a house or above and permanently open to the main house. A house addition can be many areas: great room, dining room, family room, bathroom, guest bedroom, or master bedroom—even a complete apartment.
A Bump Out is a single room structure built onto the side of a house meant for a single function, such as a bedroom or bathroom. Sometimes it only expands the size of a single room on the existing home.
Conversions are probably one of the easiest and cost-effective ways of adding extra living space and value to your home. The framework is already in place, and most likely, all that it needs is some small-scale construction and internal cosmetics.
On average, the addition consists of a basic room with necessary electrical wiring and little to no plumbing. Features such as bedrooms and bathrooms with luxury fixtures start raising that square footage price. Every door, window, and wall adds to the price. The more luxurious the design, the more it adds to the cost.
But every dollar you spend in a Room Addition is an investment. By increasing your living, you are adding value to a house. It is no coincidence that making your home bigger (or just so that it feels bigger) will add value; you might be surprised by what can be done within the existing footprint.
So, whether you’re investing in your home with the addition of an extension, loft conversion, basement conversion, or by reconfiguring the layout of your home for a more open plan feel, find out how to add space to your home, increase your quality of life, and make your home more desirable if your willing to sell.
