What Is A Home Addition?
Home additions must be built with expertise to ensure they blend with your existing architecture and require quality workmanship to fulfill the investment you’re making in your home.
Adding onto your home is a perfect way to make the home you love more livable with expanded space indoors or outdoors. If you want a bigger home, expanded deck or porch space, additional rooms or enlarged rooms, choose the remodeling pros at Cotswold Builders, LLC.
Types Of Home Additions
House additions come in a few basic types to address homeowners’ needs for living space, cost, and style. House additions range from low-cost, do-it-yourself sunrooms that only minimally can be called additions to expensive full-size conventional additions.
1. Conventional House Addition
A conventional house addition is a multi-room structure that is built onto the side of a house and which is permanently open to the main house. When built well enough, a house addition essentially blends into and becomes the house itself.
2. Room Addition or Bump Out
A room addition or bump out is a single room structure built onto the side of a house meant for a single function, such as a bedroom or bathroom. Sometimes it only expands the size of a single room on the existing house.
A sunroom is an addition to the side of the house that is usually a supplemental living area. Sunrooms typically can be closed off from the main part of the house with doors.
4. Garage Conversion
A garage conversion is a one- or two-vehicle attached garage that has been turned into a living space by adding flooring, replacing the garage door with a solid wall, and installing a ceiling. Usually, garage conversions become living rooms or bedrooms.
