Cheaper to Remodel

Our clients come to us motivated by so many reasons -- but one we hear a lot is, "We really love where we live, but we need more space!" For many, it would be more costly to move than to make an addition to their home. Neighbors, schools, and communities are hard to say goodbye to. Connections perhaps irreplaceable. But some smart planning, a little framing, roofing, windows & doors - and all of a sudden your "love where you live" home is just that -- a place that fits your family, your needs, a true home sweet home. 

This family decided to take their 1.5 story home and make the second story more substantial. As a bonus, they also got to totally redo their master bathroom (expanded shower, separate water closet, closet expansion) without adding to their footprint at all. They borrowed a bit of space (not much!) from the garage storage area and were able to organize the bathroom more efficiently so that it feels bigger! The second story addition will contain a 14 x 16 rec room, a laundry, a new bathroom, and generous closet. The upstairs laundry, closet & bath put this rec room in a perfect position to become an en suite bedroom in future.

After the Old Comes the New

The old stuff piled into the dumpster, materials for the new rooms are delivered, and our carpenters get to go to town. A new bedroom out of thin air, a whole new floor up in the air -- it's the magic of construction to see a plan fly off the page and become real.
