Is your family outgrowing your current home? Need an extra bedroom for a new baby? Would a first-floor master suite mean you could age in place instead of having to move? Thinking about converting your basement or attic into a mother-in-law suite? If your home was designed for the way families used to live, Distinctive Design / Build / Remodel can help you evaluate your options and determine whether adding on to your existing home is the best answer for your family. We're an award-winning Design / Build team with decades of experience in all aspects of custom home building and luxury remodeling.
The first step is to decide what you want and need and what your budget is. Establishing a realistic budget early on in the process is crucial because budget affects design. As a full-service Design / Build team, we can guide you from the early stages of conceptualizing your project all the way through construction. We offer phased design services to help you establish a realistic budget before spending time and money developing the construction plans you’ll need to get a permit for your addition.
Building an addition is typically a more affordable option than buying a new home with the space you want. Once you consider the fees you’ll pay for selling your existing home and buying a new one, as well as all the costs associated with moving, adding on is often the best answer. This is especially true for families who love their neighborhood. We’ve built additions as small as a closet and as large as an entire new wing - but all were designed to make our clients’ homes more functional and, of course, beautiful.
Some additions look like the original house and it’s hard to tell what is old and what is new. While other additions stand out like sore thumbs. We pride ourselves on the fact that our additions look like they’ve always been part of the house. If expertly designed and built with quality products, your new addition may actually increase the value of your home resulting in a higher sales price when you sell it and improved quality of life while you’re still living there. Take the time to plan and do it right the first time with a Design / Build team that’s dedicated to craftsmanship and customer satisfaction. Just remember the old adage – “You get what you pay for.” This is especially true in the remodeling business.
