Benefits of Building Out for Home Addition, Instead of Up or Down

Home additions are a big decision and likely a decision that was a long time coming. When running out of space, homeowners will have to choose between moving or adding on to their homes. However, if your family is happy with your home’s location and already have an established life where you are, a home addition is the right way to go.

There are many types of home additions, but we’re going to highlight one in particular that we think is a great solution to needing more space: main-level additions, or building out instead of up or down.

For starters, if the yard space is there, building out instead of adding another level to the home is the easiest way to go in terms of structure. One major advantage to adding to your one level, ranch-style home is it’s the least disruptive home remodel out of the home addition options. The new part of the home will get built before we open up the exterior of your home to connect it, so you have more time still living inside the home. We will lay the foundation, then build the walls and roof before connecting the new space to the existing structure.

Another advantage to building out is even a small addition can make large impact on the overall layout of your home. For example, expanding your kitchen just 5’ can make a big difference when it comes to adding more cabinet space and square footage. It can also add a much-needed room, which can make all the difference. An extra bedroom, playroom, office or dining room might be all your home needs to feel complete.
