Life is an ever-changing entity. We never live in the same space for an extended period of time, even if we live in the same home for many years. Changes in lifestyle require changes in your immediate surroundings. Today we’re going to talk about the lifestyle changes that benefit from a home addition as well as what to expect after your addition has been built.
Lifestyle Changes that May Require a Home Addition
- Having a baby or adopting a child
- Inviting elderly parents to live with you
- Teenagers needing their own space
- Separate media and entertainment rooms for teens and adults
Adding onto Your Home Will Change the Appearance and Dynamic
You may enjoy the overall appearance of your home as-is. Please keep in mind that adding a home addition will add another entire room (or multiple rooms) to your home. Those rooms will change the outward appearance of your home, reducing yard space, as well as giving more room inside. Carefully consider where your addition will be built before you contact us to work out the details.
Home Additions Take Time
We work as quickly as possible to make your homeownership dreams come true, but building an addition does take time. Be patient, and remember that a high quality finished project will require time to bring to fruition. Any time you’re worried about the progress of your project, feel free to ask.
Avoid Hidden Costs
Building a home addition isn’t one of the most expensive things you can do to improve your home, but it does come at a cost depending on the size and scope of the addition. Here at Authorized Construction Group, LLC, in Essex, MD, we will help you create a budget that works for you and allows us the ability to create the addition you need. We don’t add fees for anything after the paperwork is signed.
Budget to Include Splurge Items
Budget at least 15% additional for splurge items. You may want nice closet doors, special feature lighting, or a nice art piece for the wall after the addition is complete. Include those splurge items into your budget from the beginning so you’re sure to get them.
Add a Sunroom
It’s Essex, MD; everyone needs a sunroom. The sunroom allows you to create a space to relax in a controlled climate whether it’s raining or the sun is shining. You may also choose to use your sunroom as a fresh-air area to play with your household pets in a safe environment, or as an additional entertainment area.
Choose Your Reason, and Then Choose Your Addition
The addition you add to your home depends entirely on the lifestyle changes you’re currently experiencing. You may need to build a nursery or an in-law suite, or you may just need extra space in the kitchen or family living areas to accommodate you teenager bringing friends over. Whatever the reason for your home addition, we’re here to help design and build it. Call Authorized Construction Group, LLC, in Essex, MD any time to discuss your ideas.
