Home additions are a great way to improve your home’s functionality and value. However, they can get tedious due to the various functional requirements and personal needs. This is further amplified if it’s your first time planning a project of this nature. In this post, your deck and additions specialist, Villwell Builders, LLC, shares the do’s and don’ts of planning home additions.
Do Plan Months Earlier
A home addition project is a large-scale project that requires months of planning. You can start planning even without a contractor. Simply going online and searching for inspirations and researching about the project can go a long way. In turn, this lets you make better-informed decisions and lets you avoid impulse decisions you might regret once the actual project phase begins. This doesn’t end here as you’ll still need to read up even as the project progresses. This pays off when you have more projects in the future and helps manage your expectations.
Don’t Overbuild a Home Addition
While it’s a well known fact that investing in a better siding and home addition can improve your home’s value, it can turn into a double-edged sword if you end up sacrificing your outdoor living space, such as your backyard. Overbuilding your property constricts your landscaping and decking options, which is especially tough if you have a limited space.
If this is the case for you, be sure to enlist the assistance of a professional home builder to help you find the perfect balance between the outdoors and your indoor living space so that you can get the most out of your investment. This will definitely be worth it if you’re planning to sell your home in the future as this can raise your home’s curb appeal, as well as its resale value.
