Expand your space without a room addition!

Expand your space without a room addition!
Rose @ 10:22 am

During the last several years we have been expanding our client’s homes with room additions. We found that many room additions were done to accommodate either a new, larger kitchen or to build a larger master suite. New homes were larger and had more open floor plans.  Often, the only way to accomplish that look in a smaller home was to add on.

Now, years later and in the present economic times we are designing many projects within the existing foot print of the home.  People are down sizing or deciding to stay where they are.  Rearranging the current space to better suit the family’s needs is what we do today. We have also used “bump outs” 2 feet deep or so to enlarge the space “Just Enough” to accomplish the design. A great reference book we use is called Creating the Not So big House from Sarah Susanka. Her approach is to design the house and each room in it to suit the needs of the individual clients who live in the home.  Her concepts will work in any size house – the idea is to design or remodel the space so it suits your particular needs.  Have fun on her web site- it might just change how you think about where you live.
