Inspiring House Additions

Choose the home addition you need

Whatever your reason, you can gain your stunning yet simple and inspiring house addition right there on your existing property.

Depending on the type of addition, you may not even need to seek a building permit. Of course, you will want to first meet with a few architects to be sure that what you envision as your breathtaking room addition is actually something that can be accomplished, fit within your budget for your home addition cost, and within the time frame you need.

Move your living space to a whole new level

Moving up in the world

Loft or attic conversion home additions are among the best ways to gain needed space inside your home.

If you already have space hovering overhead, why not put it to good use and turn it into a room or even a complete upstairs apartment space.

Depending on the extent of what you want done, your loft can be done simply in no time at all, with the main concern being figuring out where to place the new staircase.

You can design an open loft reading room or an easily built guest bedroom. Or, it could be quite extensive, adding plumbing and an entire level filled with a bedroom, extra bathroom and maybe even a small kitchen.

Exactly what can be done and how extensive the home addition will be determined by the slope of your roof, how much head room you need to create, and how easy the area above is accessible to the rest of the house or what rooms are already in place underneath the loft area.

Knock out a back wall to expand

When extending outward, it will also mean finishing the home addition to look like or, at very least, to complement the look of the original architecture so the finished job doesn’t look as though you patched on a box.

If you live in a brick home, for instance, it may be tricky to match brick that has been in place and weathered.

Instead, you may consider using white bead board or other wood that does not stick out like a sore thumb, but rather, finishes the original architectural look with style.

Four season conservatory

Open up the back or side of your house and let the sunshine in with a sunroom addition or four-season conservatory home addition.

You know your yard best as far as where the sun hits it at a certain time of day and what views you want to see or which ones you’d prefer to block out. Tap into this knowledge of your landscaping, and add on a sunroom.

Unlike a back extension, a four season addition is going to either add on a conservatory style room with plenty of windows or is going to enclose an existing deck to create livable space that makes it possible to enjoy your back yard from the inside year round.

Use the garage

Move the car

Sometimes the easiest and fastest way to gain extra space needed for a new room is to enclose the garage and transform it into living space with a garage addition. Many people never park their cars in the garage anyway, so it is one of the most logical choices for expanding inside rooms.

A garage room addition makes a great choice for an extra bedroom, office, or even a man cave. Of course, the main concern is going to be making sure you have proper insulation, finishing the flooring and ceiling, and that the large garage door opening is now closed off as a wall that complements the rest of the home’s architectural style.

Build a separate house addition out back

If there is absolutely no place to add onto the existing home, or maybe you already have a detached garage, gazebo, or shed that is easy to turn into a house addition.

Either build additional constructed walls and walkways to bring the outbuilding and the main home connected. Or, keep the room additions separate to use as mother-in-law quarters or even to rent out as a separate apartment if your local laws allow.
