Architectural details and design can help make the difference when adding a room addition to your home. We strive to have your project feel like it was built with the original home by paying attention to the details and doing it right the first time. Curb appeal is always important for resale after remodeling.

When designing your new space it is important to decide the primary objectives for your custom home addition.

Family Room Addition

If you plan to build a family room addition think about the types of family gatherings you would like to hold to ensure your project accommodates the dynamic needs of your family and friends. 

• How does your family enter into your new space?
• Do you prefer an open area or a space with more privacy?
• Think about how comfortable the space will feel when no guests are over.
• Think about how you want to place your furniture and the flow within your space.
• Do you want the family room to be open to the kitchen?
• Does the family room provide options for seating without inhibiting the host’s kitchen workspace?
• How many electrical outlets do you need? Do you need any electrical outlets in the floor?
• What type of lighting is appropriate?
• Do you need space to accommodate a large TV and a speaker system?
• Do you need a bar or snack area?

Master Suite Addition

Adding a master suite addition to your home can help you create space for a growing family while giving you the privacy you desire. Here are a few things to keep in mind when designing your master bedroom or suite addition.

• How much closet space do you desire?
• Does the entrance into the master bedroom provide some privacy from the main living space?
• Do you want space for a sitting area or alcove?
• Do you desire custom built-ins?
• What is your view?
• How much natural light and windows do you want?
• Do you need French doors leading to the outside?
• Wet bar and refrigerator
• How many electrical outlets do you need?
• What type of flooring and finishes do you prefer?
• Can closets be placed in areas to provide sound barriers between your room and the main living area or on walls shared with other bedrooms?
• What features do you want in your master bathroom?

Common other master bathroom features include a double-sink vanity, separate soaking tub and walk-in shower.

Patio Enclosure or Porch Addition

One of the benefits of having a covered patio enclosure or porch addition is to extend your outside living area. A covered porch provides a comfortable place to enjoy the outdoors. If you are looking to add a porch or patio enclosure below are some things to consider:

• How do you plan to use the space?
• Do you need space to accommodate dining furniture or lounge seating?
• Do you need an outside bar area?
• What direction do you want the porch to face?
• Do you want the space to tie into your existing roofline and architectural style of your home?
• Does the space need to open up to a patio or pool?
• Do you need electrical outlets?
• What type of flooring do you desire?
• Does the space need French doors or sliding doors leading into your home?
