Additions

If you sat down with 100 people and asked them to tell you honestly, what are the biggest reasons why they don't put an addition on their house, chances are they'd tell you something like this:

  • "Too expensive"
  • "Unsure what to do"
  • "Don't think I have enough room"
  • "I'm afraid it'll turn into a big mess"

Suffice it to say, unless there's definitely no money available, then most fears basically boil down to  fear of the unknown.

In other words, since putting an addition on is definitely a big job, even thinking about what to do can be enough to give you a headache.

So then, if you want to put an addition on your house, the first thing you need to do is start with an honest budget because a home addition (unlike an less expensive upgrade such as a rear-deck) is generally a substantial expense.

On the other hand though, since we've never had a customer with a new addition who didn't feel great about the new space, in our (slightly biased) opinion, we think money spent on a home addition is well worth it.

However, worth it or not, additions are typically substantial projects, so a sound budget is a must. And for this reason, on every addition we do, the first step is that we come meet with you and make sure that your expectations regarding the sufficiency of your budget are realistic.

Chances are that you will be able to afford the addition that you want, but the first step is that we must sit down together and get everyone on the same page. And the good news here is that this initial meeting is free to you.

In other words, if you are serious about putting an addition on your house, we're happy to discuss your ideas, budget and space limitations - all at no charge.

At this initial meeting, we'll take plenty of notes and in short order, we'll get back to you with some recommendations and pricing ideas. Armed with this information, you'll be able to think through which way you'd like to go and at our next meeting, we can present you with a formalized design/build agreement.

In our experience, the best way to avoid trouble when doing a home addition is to discuss and agree on all the important details up front - this way you get the addition you want - with no unfair cost surprises later on.

If you're thinking of adding on to your home, please call us - we've got 30 years experience and can handle every aspect of the entire job.
