“After we had the entire family here for Thanksgiving, it’s clear that we just don’t have enough space anymore,” Dawn said. “Our youngest is still living at home, and my Mom just moved in. Obviously, we’re family, we’re going to make it work – but it would be a lot easier to make it work with a home addition!”
Adding living space, storage space, and space for a home business are among the top reasons families have home additions built in Framingham, MA. There are many different types of home addition, with three particular types popular locally:
The First Floor Addition: By far the most common type of home addition, the first floor addition adds space to the home by expanding the home’s footprint. This type of addition is particularly useful when you’re seeking to create living space for older family members or anyone who has mobility concerns; a first floor addition removes the need for stairs. First floor additions can also be part of extensive kitchen remodels, or used to house a home business.
The Second Story Addition: There are times when expanding the home’s footprint is not an option. When the home is too close to property lines, or trees and landscape features preclude building, the need for extra space forces homeowners to build up. Second and third story additions are useful for providing extra living and storage space. In the Framingham area, second story additions are most often built to house master suites, bedrooms, and for storage.
The Sunroom: Whether you’re having a sunroom built on your deck or as a home addition, you’re gaining a beautiful, open space to enjoy with your family and friends. Sunrooms can transform a summertime deck into a area you can use year round, and are great for families who have kids that need room to play. Pets love sunrooms too!
