Need more space in your home? One way you can do this is through a structural addition. However, before you go ahead with it, we suggest that you make a list of requirements and identify what you really need.
The reason we suggest you do so is because there is more than one type of home addition. Let’s take a look at these and determine which one of these best fits your home:
Main Floor Addition
Have space in your yard? Well then, we suggest that you go for main floor additions. Basically, what this means is that you add to your home’s foundation or the roofline.
The company that you hire for remodeling will use excavating equipment in order to dig up the area and install new foundation in that space. It’s done in such a way that the old and the new part of your home seamlessly merge.
There are several ways in which you can use the additional space. This can be the place where your aging parents live. Or you can use the additional space as an entertainment center.
You can use the space as a bathroom or a laundry room as well. In some homes, people use the additional space as a gym.
A Bump Out
This is a great option for people who don’t really want to go for a complete main floor addition. Unlike the former option, though only a small amount of space is added to the home. Through this option, you can increase the space available in your living room.
Like main floor addition, you will also need to add foundation to the roofline however; the costs will naturally be lower.
Not everyone uses the basement and garage. If you are one of those people, we suggest that you convert these rooms. For example, you can convert the basement into a separate bedroom or a kitchen.
Similarly, you can convert the garage into a gym or a storage space. You can also use this space as a working place. Really, it’s all up to your imagination.
Installation of ADU
These have gained quite a lot of popularity in the last few years. These are independent residential units that are built on properties at a certain distance from the main house. They have a separate bathroom, kitchen, and a main door.
