Adding onto your home is a great way to enhance the comfort, convenience and beauty of your property. In this post, custom home remodeling expert Highland Design + Build, formerly known as CASE Design/Remodeling Birmingham examines four types of home additions and how each can benefit you.
This is a single-room structure typically added onto the side of a home. It’s usually meant to be a bedroom or a bathroom, but it can also be used as additional space in the kitchen. With a bigger kitchen, you can make way for an island or transform a cramped dining area into a roomy place to eat and socialize.
Converting a garage into a bedroom or living area is an easy project for experienced home addition contractors since the basic structure is already there. You have the foundation, walls, concrete flooring and roof. However, it also comes with a few challenges. Plumbing and HVAC systems are typically not included in this area, but a good contractor won’t have a problem installing all the necessary components.
Conventional Home Addition
This is usually a multi-room structure built onto the side of a home. It can be permanently open to your main home, and with the right design, it can blend into the original structure. A conventional home addition can serve various purposes, functioning as a bedroom, bathroom, bonus room or home office.
This home addition often serves as a supplemental living area. It’s typically smaller than a conventional addition, and it can be closed off from the main part of your home with doors. A sunroom is not usually designed to be a permanent living space, so it may not be necessary to install heating or air conditioning.
