In 2020, people in the Lower Mainland spent a lot more time at home. Many started working from home. Children started being homeschooled. Everyone definitely didn't go out as much locally. Vacationing in place became fashionable.
"Home" more important today
Today, the home is once again the heart of everyone's activity and, if you are reading this, you know that some improvements need to be made. Maybe you need a real home office. Maybe that kitchen isn't up to snuff. Hey, we need more family room and a place for schooling. The truth is, despite the uncertain times, home design and renovations are booming. We know because our phones have been ringing off the hook and even the media have noticed.
Best option for new space
So let's talk about home additions as a renovation option. You love your neighbourhood and don't want to leave but the elbow room in the house has gotten tight. You need those new spaces. A total rebuild from scratch isn’t an option. So expanding your living space with a home addition is a great plan.
Depending on the configuration of your house and the available buildable portions on your property, a home addition will generally go either up or out, adding either a partial or an entirely new story or an extension onto the existing structure at ground level.
Here are some great reasons to consider when deciding to have a home addition:
- Adds space – Gain valuable usable space, not just the illusion of it. You can expand existing rooms or have your home’s entirely new areas serve as completely purpose-built rooms. Give some free rein to your imagination and brainstorm the possibilities.
- Increase your home’s value – Adding to your home’s square footage automatically boosts its value and therefore increases your long-term equity investment.
- Control over design and budget – Design the new space according to your own taste and specifications, while staying on top of your bottom line.
