Second storey additions Calgary
One of the most popular custom home additions in Calgary is a second storey addition to a single-storey home.
It allows you to build up instead of outwards so that it doesn’t impact on your much-valued yard space.
Most importantly for many homeowners, you get to stay right where you are while creating a home more in keeping with what you need.
A second storey addition can be an ideal solution for homeowners who:
- Have new additions to the family and need extra space
- Feel cramped or restricted in their present single-storey home
- Love their neighbourhood and don’t want to move
- Do not want to go through the upheaval of finding new schools, etc.
A second storey addition is a major investment but it allows you to add new functionality to your home, with more bedrooms, a second bathroom, etc., without leaving the neighbourhood you love.
Other types of custom home additions
Besides second storey additions, you may want to add a new room or extend an existing one.
A New Home Office
Most of us have had to work from home at some point recently. We all know how difficult that can be with kids running around and constant interruptions.
A new office addition can revolutionize the working-from-home experience.
You can either build a dedicated personal office space within the confines of your home or look at building a separate and detached space that you can rent out to another business owner when you’re not using it.
Another Room Addition
A bedroom for a new arrival in the family or a place for guests to sleep may be top of your list.
Or perhaps it is a second bathroom to ease some of the congestion in the mornings and evenings.
Maybe you want a family room addition – a place to all huddle up and watch a movie together on winter evenings?
To achieve these new spaces, we may be able to extend outwards or even utilize space over an attached garage to create an entirely new room that makes the best possible use of space.
Not every home addition needs to involve adding a new storey or room.
You may want to extend a kitchen or bathroom or simply add a window seat with extra storage facilities.
