1.) Possibilities: In the beginning, while you may have an idea of how you will use your addition, it should still be comforting to know that its purpose can be modified at a later date. When you really consider the options (i.e. workout room, office, extra bedroom, second living space, etc.), you’ll be amazed at what you can create.
2.) Moving Alternative: While sad, there’s truth to the idea that as life happens, we tend to outgrow our homes; however, relocation often means new neighborhoods, new schools, and a lot of hassle. If this process is not something you want to go through anytime soon, adding an addition to your existing house can be a fantastic alternative.
3.) Added Home Value: While you may not be ready to sell right now, there’s a good possibility that you’ll consider it down the road. Therefore, even a modest addition will add a great deal of value when it comes time for an appraisal.
4.) More Room: If your lifestyle regularly consists of family members and other house guests who visit on a regular basis, an extra room can make a great deal of difference when it comes to being either cramped or comfortable.
In the end, when considering an addition, it’s important to note that haphazardly adding square-footage may not always give your home the value boost you’re looking for. To combat this, consider the services of a highly-qualified home builder who can properly match your addition to your home’s existing layout and flow.
