Building home additions is one of the most common types of projects we get hired for. An addition can be a fairly simple way to add some square footage to your home, whether it be to expand a bedroom or kitchen, or to add a leisure space like a sunroom. Depending on the type of addition you’re looking for, you could spend anywhere from $5,000 to $50,000 or more. If you’re thinking about a home addition but you’re not sure what would give you the best bang for your buck, give us a call and we’ll come do a consultation.
What Kind Of Home Addition Are You Interested In?
Room Expansion for Kitchen
If you haven’t done much work to your kitchen since moving in, it’s probably one of the rooms you think about updating a lot. In Newburyport, old homes come with small rooms, which means you probably can’t build your dream kitchen with the existing space. A home addition, such as adding a bump out, would help solve that issue. Often, you don’t need to add that much square footage in order to make the space more usable. Not only will you get the kitchen of your dreams, but the extra square footage will increase the value of the home.
Adding Square Footage for Bedroom/Extra Space
Lots of people love their homes and their neighborhoods, but at some point they start to grow out of their house. Instead of moving, it makes more sense to do a home addition. Adding square footage will always increase the value of your home, and then you’ll have space to grow within the house you love. A home addition a great option for adding another bedroom or creating an office space.
Building a Pool House/In-Law Apartment
We have a lot of clients who have the acreage and the desire for more space, but in a separate building. Whether it’s a pool house or an in-law apartment, adding another building with a bathroom and kitchen can add a lot to the value of your home. The photo below is a project we have in Newbury, turning a garage into an in-law apartment. Everything to the right of the roofline is brand new. We’ve built a kitchen, bedroom, closet and bathroom, plus two outdoor spaces.
Building a Sunroom
Living in New England, we only get a few months of beautiful weather where you can spend time outside on a deck or porch. A lot of homeowners choose to build a sunroom off their house in order to spend more time “outside” year-round. We can build a sunroom that’s fully insulated and can be heated, or we can build something that’s only meant to be used in warmer weather, but will protect from the sun and bugs.
