Build Out or Build Up With a New Addition For Your Home or Business
With proper planning and a skilled contractor, building an addition or adding a second or third story can be a seamless experience.
The key is to hire competent people that know what they're doing and can guide you gracefully through the process.
Ground Floor Additions
Building an addition on the ground floor can be a great way to get more enjoyment out of your home, increase square footage and resale value.
There will be much to consider when planning your addition, and North East Remodeling can help you get the ball rolling in the right direction.
We work closely with some very experienced and reputable architects in the Ulster/ Dutchess County area. This insures that your new addition will be executed seamlessly from start to finish.
Room "Bump Out"
A "bump out," as the name implies is not the same as adding a full-on addition, but it is a happy compromise.
Perhaps you don't have the budget to add a full addition? It is possible to extend the square footage of an existing room to get the extra space you need, without breaking the bank.
Maybe you want to squeak out a little more space to accommodate an eat-in kitchen layout? Or perhaps you want to expand a half-bath or a family room? The possibilities are endless.
Second Story Addition
Sometimes it makes more sense to build up rather than build out. This is especially true when property lines and or zoning laws don't cooperate with your vision.
Depending on what you want to to do, sometimes adding a second floor can actually be more cost effective than building out on the ground floor. That's because it can be easier to tie into existing plumbing and you don't have to pour a new section of foundation.
The most important aspect of adding another floor is having good plans, designed by a reputable architect and stamped by a structural engineer. When you engage North East Remodeling for your addition, we will guide you through the process and put you in touch with the right people.
Adding a Dormer
Dormers are typically used in attics. It's a term used to describe a type of addition used to make a renovated attic space more habitable.
This can be a very cost effective way of adding another floor to your home or business without actually adding another floor. Because an attic space will have a slanted roof as the ceiling, dormers are installed to make the space more habitable.
A dormer projects outward from the roof. It makes it easy to stand and move around without bumping your head on a slanted ceiling (the roof). Many times people will put a bed or a desk in this outcropping.
