New Room Additions for a More Spacious & Usable Home
by Summit Design Remodeling
Remodeling your home within the confines of the existing space may make it difficult to achieve the desired results. This may make the addition of a family room, dining room, sun room, porch, kitchen, bathroom, etc. necessary to make the space compatible with your requirements.
The goal of any addition is to design a structure that, in the end, looks like it was a part of the house from the beginning, and within the the confines of building codes and zoning ordances. In order to accomplish this, thoughtful planning must be done in advance to ensure that roof lines work with the existing parameter, such as, windows above competing roof lines, etc. Our design team will examine all of the possibilities to not only provide you with an addition that looks like it belongs with the original, but also a room that is energy efficient and economical to build.
There are many ways and reasons to add space to you existing home:
- One or two story bump-outs. Expanding the existing foot-print of your home.
- Dependent on site conditions, the confines of the lot and the orientation of the existing house, it may not be feasible to expand outward. Expanding upward may be a feasible alternative. These types of additions, commonly called "pop-ups", are very common in the metro Northern Virginia area.
Since additions can, and often do go in many directions and take on many different configurations, its best to have the right contractor from day one.
