Maybe you need an extra bedroom or bathroom, or quite possibly you want to design a larger kitchen and eating area and change the floor plan of your home. Whatever ideas and dreams you may have up your sleeve, let McDonough Construction walk you through the process from start to finish. As a start, here are a few things to consider:
What New Space Do You Need the Most?
You probably already have some ideas about the answer to this question. However, this is an important part of the remodeling and construction process. This part can start right where you are, you don’t even need a pro at this point.
Are you looking for more practical space (like an extra bedroom)? Do you need a larger kitchen or desperately need another bathroom? Sometimes an addition is just that – a literal add-on that is an extra room.
Other times a construction project involves creating additional space while also changing part of the layout (expending the kitchen into an unused old dining room for example). Sometimes an addition goes up to a second floor, sometimes out into the yard.
Give some careful consideration to this question, and feel free to contact us at McDonough Construction for a free estimate and helpful expertise to guide you through the process of considering your perfect remodel or addition.
How Much will a New Addition Cost? Is it Affordable?
According to HomeAdvisor, the average national cost of adding a room or building an addition is $43,310, with most homeowners spending between $20,850 and $66,835.
Many homeowners eventually come to that daunting dilemma on whether to buy their dream house or transform their current home into that dream. Once you make the commitment to build an addition, you’ve probably decided to go down the latter road. This decision might be something you’ve long considered, or it may have been thrust upon you by an expanding family. In either case, recognize that this will be a profound investment in time and money, but one that, if done properly will enhance the value of your most important investment.
Should You Be Worried About the Hassle of Being Involved in a Remodeling or Construction Addition Project?
Any time you take on adding to or remodeling your home, there will be some level of stress involved. Parts of your home may not be able to be used temporarily, and during certain times of the day, there will be construction activity and noises. We don’t want to minimize the possible stress these things can cause. However, in the long run, it can be well worth a minor inconvenience to get the house of your dreams!
