Let’s Talk Additions

Do you feel “stuck” in your home? Cannot seem to enjoy yourself as you did when it was built or moved into? Well maybe its time for something new; something..exciting! Just like in Goldilocks and the 3 bears, and her fabled search for the perfect chair, the perfect size home falls in to three categories, too small, too big or just right. Most homes start out as just right and then morph into the “too small” category as a family outgrows the size of their home for many reasons. Moving isn’t always the best option when it means changing school districts or adding time to the daily work commute, so the best option is sometimes to get a bigger house and a better fit is to take the major remodeling decision. Most people think of changing the space within their homes when they think remodeling. Such things as adding new kitchen cabinets or new flooring Perhaps some French doors to replace your sliding patio doors or taking down a wall between those two small bedrooms to create a bigger master bedroom.

Expand Your Boundaries

On a larger scale however, it is possible to add to your home, but not just a room but several rooms and sometimes in the form of a whole new 2nd floor to the house. Adding a second story to a one story home is a great way to give a home with smaller square footage added size and by increasing your family size can easily add bedrooms and a bathroom without sacrificing the needed space below. Building upwards is a fast way to potentially double the size of your home’s square footage, and it will also increase the value of the house when and if it ever becomes necessary to put it on the market.

Having Bayou Homes by Design work with the home owner during the whole process ensures that the ideas of or clients are implemented in a cost effective way, and that the remodel construction will stay true to the format and design of the home. A good remodeling job should blend and have an easy flow from one area of the home to the next without any obvious gaps where the old meets the new. For the home owner who can’t build a whole new addition upwards due to the foundation of the existing home, it is also possible to add an addition to the home by building outwards if your property allows for it.

This is a clever approach to keep the integrity of a ranch-style house and increase the size of not only the bedrooms but the living room and kitchen as the whole house is expanded out to give more room inside. Just as Goldilocks finally found the perfect bowl of porridge, the perfect chair and the perfect bed, the homeowner who remodels will find the perfect house was always waiting to be discovered right under their nose the whole time.
