An addition increases a home’s living space by building on square footage. Often, homeowners are faced with a great impasse when they love their home, and their home is in the perfect location, but there is not enough living space in the home to meet their needs. Building an addition can solve this issue by enhancing the home a homeowner loves to fit his or her lifestyle needs. In many cases, an addition can be cheaper than selling and moving, particularly when the market is volatile. When it comes to additions, there are a variety of different types of additions depending on a homeowner’s specific needs.

Bump Out Addition:

A bump out addition includes increasing the square footage of an existing room or wing of the home to meet the homeowner’s needs. For example, this can be increasing the size of a kitchen to accommodate a breakfast bar or island. Bump out additions can also include adding on a room or a full wing to the home.

Two-Story Addition:

A two-story addition involves adding living space to home by building up. In this process, the roof is removed to allow for another floor to be built on an existing home.A two-story addition not only creates the possibility for a lot of additional living space but increases a home’s appeal by making it appear more prominent from the outside.

Garage Conversion Addition:

A garage conversion “addition” is, as the name says, converting a homeowner’s existing garage into a livable space.This type of “addition” is ideal for homeowners who cannot build up or out.


Sunrooms are also called “all season rooms,” which provide abundant natural light year round. Built with insulated glass, these rooms dramatically enhance the dynamic of a home and often seem bigger than they are.

Basement & Attic Finishing:

Homeowners often have unused spaces that can be made into livable spaces. Mainly, unfinished attics and basements allow the possibility for increased living space without building up or building out of the existing structure.While there are challenges to making these spaces inhabitable, a good expert can skillfully navigate such challenges to create warm and inviting spaces.


Also called mother-in-law apartments, in-law-suites create a fully functioning secondary living space within a home.Thus, these additions often include a bathroom, a small kitchen or kitchenette, and a bedroom.In-law-suites allow for homeowners to host long-term guests comfortably.
