Build an Addition

Build an Addition

House additions come in a few basic types to address homeowners’ needs for living space, cost, and style. House additions range from low-cost, do-it-yourself sunrooms that only minimally can be called additions to expensive full-size conventional additions. Garage conversions can even legitimately be called additions since so much living area is added at once.

A conventional house addition is a multi-room structure that is built onto the side of a house and which is permanently open to the main house. When built well enough, a house addition essentially blends into and becomes the house itself.

A house addition is the most expensive, time-consuming, and space-intensive remodeling project. Yet an addition seems to be the one house alteration that most people want usually because they really need the extra space and adding on allows them to stay in their current home rather than buying a bigger one.

Most homeowners complete an addition by hiring a remodeling contractor or builder, but that doesn’t mean the owners are hands-off. To make informed decisions and to ensure that the work is completed to their satisfaction, homeowners should be involved in every stage of the process.
It can be helpful to think of a home addition as a massive, step-by-step undertaking.The specific building materials and the tools required to use them will vary from one project to another, but home additions generally include many of the same materials as a new house.
