Could this be the year you decide to create an addition for your home? Atlanta Curb Appeal helped this East Cobb family add a new wing to their home. And they are in love!
Originally, they found Atlanta Curb Appeal because we had already worked on several homes in their East Cobb Chimney Springs neighborhood. At first, this project started out as a simple add-on. The homeowner wanted a master bedroom built above the garage, but as the homeowner started talking about options with us, they decided to go even bigger. Great ideas just kept piling up! When all was said and done, they decided to also update the exterior of the house and refresh the kids’ bathrooms.
Home additions are always fun – and often full of surprises. This one was no different. The initial idea was to build a new room above the garage, but as we began demolition of the attic above the garage, we decided to take a different course. We knew that the existing garage would not be a good foundation for a new room, so we decided it would be better to rebuild a stronger garage and foundation first. In this case, renovating an old space would have caused more issues than starting fresh.
There are a few other things besides foundation that you should consider before starting a home addition project. For example, will the home addition location be ideal for new plumbing, electric, and HVAC pipes and ducts? Will you need to add more HVAC units to keep the home cool/warm? Also, local inspectors will want to see wiring, smoke detectors, and new breakers in the circuit panel. The other factor is flow. These are all things that ACA can help you determine when you are thinking about an addition.
