What Type of Room Should I Add?
Peaks Construction helps Southeast Michigan homeowners create beauty in any room addition project through a wide variety of additions. Whether you want a game room, sunroom, media room, or additional living space, we can design and build a room that fits your style. When considering adding a room, you must ask yourself the following questions:
1. Will The Addition Accomplish My Space Needs?
Before making an addition, you must assess your current living space and determine if the addition will accomplish your needs and solve your space issues. If your house doesn’t have a guest room, a bedroom addition would allow out-of-town family members and friends to visit more often. If your nieces and nephews love to play at your house, an added playroom would provide a safe space for activities.
Before you spend the money for a room addition, it’s important to make sure it will add benefits to your lifestyle and give you that much needed space.
2. Will The Addition Increase Your Home’s Value?
Even if selling your home isn’t on your mind at the moment, you need to think about the impact of the room addition on resale value. Whether you choose to sell, refinance, or take out a home equity line of credit, you’ll want to get the best possible appraisal of your home.
Room additions are typically costly, and often return less on investment than home remodels. If you want to maximize the return on your investment you should consider adding amenities that are in demand. An example of this is if the majority of homes in your area have a garage and you don’t, then that would be considered a good investment.
3. How Much Will The Addition Cost?
Every property is different so without talking to a local contractor it’s not possible to guess how much an addition will cost. As a general guideline, you can expect to spend an average of $100 to $200 or more per square foot for building costs.
Another factor to consider is the costs for furnishing and amenities. Your heating and energy costs will rise as well because you’re increasing the square footage on your property. Your property taxes will also likely increase especially is you add amenities such as a fireplace, hot tub, or sauna.
4. Is There a Lower-Cost Alternative?
Remodeling an existing attic or basement space are lower cost alternatives to additions to your home. Another option is to simply re-configure your existing living space.
5. How Should I Tie The Room Addition Into The House?
There must be a lot of planning when making an addition to your house. The key is to make it so that it looks like the addition was always a part of the house. Some things to consider are the roofline and how the addition will connect the house. You also want to consider how you can enhance the style of the house with windows, doors, and other exterior materials/finishes.
Your space needs and property size will determine whether you should build up or build out. Building up is always more expensive than building out because they require retrofitting of the home’s foundation.
6. Are There Any Zoning Restrictions That Will Affect The Project?
Most municipalities have zoning restrictions that dictate what you can build and where you can build it. You should talk to your contractor about local building codes that may impact your addition.
Room additions are a great way to transform your home and increase your living space. Even small additions can yield big results. If you add three or four feet into a kitchen or a bathroom it can make a huge difference.
