Building Up or Building Out 

Does your home need more space? Perhaps a growing family or a new hobby finds you needing to expand your current space. Room additions can take shape in a variety of ways- whether you build up or build out- we take personal pride in our attention to detail on your home additions. From start to finish, we focus on quality craftsmanship, innovation, and the professional completion of your design and construction objectives. Take a look at the types of home additions to decide whats right for you: 


Second-Story Additions

Second-story additions are great way to expand the living space in your current home. Depending on the situation, building up can sometimes be less expensive per square foot than building out because there won't be any need for foundation building. With a second floor addition, you can add bedrooms, bathrooms, an office/study, or any other space you desire. 


Benefits of a Second-Story Addition

Building a second-story addition onto your current Fox Valley home can allow you to:

  • Create more living space without having to move 
  • Increase the value of your home
  • Keep your outdoor living space and yard as is
  • Design the layout and features of every room 
  • Tailor the space to your lifestyle

If a full second-story addition is a little more than what you need, consider a dormer addition. A dormer is an addition that comes through the roof to create a higher ceiling and more interior space. This will require removing part of the roof and building the new structure into the space. You can use the dormer addition to create a private office, bedroom, or playroom.
