Building Up and Building Out: Design Solutions to Live Better in Your Home 


Home additions come in many shapes and sizes, creating a new opportunity for you and your family. Whether you’re looking at building up or building out, the goal of a home addition is to help you live better in your home. Creating new spaces requires careful consideration of your needs and desires. Building an addition that looks like it was part of the original structure takes exceptional skill and craftsmanship.

Materials, technology, and how the space is used changes and grows over time. Because of this, we spend a lot of time getting to know you and your needs intricately. Together, we will take a look at what the space needs to achieve, how you plan to use the area now and in five years from now, and what this means for the existing structure of your home. In the end, a home addition should respect its original structure while creating the modern functionality and features required in the present.
