Living in a great location and neighborhood is one of the top reasons why homebuyers decide to remodel instead of move. While your current home may no longer meet the needs of your family, the thought of packing up and moving out may sound like too much of a commitment. Rather than finding a new home, adding on to your house can provide your family with the functionality and space you’re looking for.
Depending on your unique needs and goals, there are several different types of home additions to consider, including the following:
Building house additions typically involves knocking down an exterior wall and building off of your existing architectural structure. If you’re looking to add multiple rooms and spaces to your home, a traditional home addition could allow you to expand the square footage.
For some homeowners, traditional home additions may be more than they need, or more than their budget may allow. Bump-out additions can provide a huge impact on expanding your space without as much upfront costs, since the addition size is smaller and requires less materials. House bump outs allow you to target a certain area of your home that would benefit from having more space.
If building out isn’t a viable or appropriate option for you, you may want to consider a second-story addition. This type of building-up home addition allows you to utilize vertical dimensions without compromising yard space.
Additions don’t always refer to building onto a house. If you have an underutilized or unfinished space, such as a garage, basement, or attic, you may desire a conversion addition. Depending on the unique space and your transformation goal, this type of home addition may require installation of other systems, insulation, drywall, etc.
Determining which type of home addition to consider for you and your family can depend on a variety of factors, including the following:
