“So I have spent three months telling my kids that I wanted everyone here for Thanksgiving,” Erin said. “And amazingly, everyone listened. They all drove out to Framingham – my four kids, their spouses or partners, and their kids. I turned around twice and suddenly, there were 23 people in my house. It never felt small before, but it was wonderful.” The rest of the family had a great time as well, promising Erin that they’ll be back next year. “Do you know what that means?” Erin asked. “I have a year to add more space to my house.”
Among the most popular home improvements in Framingham are those that add more space to the home. Adding on a room is a popular option, as is having a custom deck added. Both of these solutions can prove to be useful when things get crowded during holiday gatherings and other family fun. “When everyone’s in the house, it can get a little warm,” Erin said. “So if we add a deck with a screened in area over on one side, there will be enough space to get outdoors comfortably.” The screened in area is ideal for containing grandchildren, some of whom are still young enough that they have a hard time staying in the yard. “You don’t want anyone running out in the road here, that’s for sure!” Erin said. “I really like the idea of customizing a deck plan with my family in mind. If we didn’t have the little ones coming over, maybe we’d do things differently. But they are coming over, so I want to make sure things are safe and fun for them.”
