The Second Story
We love a good home makeover. People are drawn to the home makeover shows such as Extreme Makeover, Fixer Upper, Property Brothers, Love It or List It and so many more. We love the before and after photos of homes that have been transformed into something so much more than what they started out. Its the fairy tale story for your home. The servant to the princess, the beggar to a king that touches our hearts and imaginations. A home makeover can offer this same rags to riches story for your life by adding a second-floor addition to your home.
Let’s begin by being completely transparent. Adding a second story to your home is a huge undertaking and costly. This type of remodel isn’t for the faint of heart! The payoff is that you are able to stay in your favorite neighborhood with your wonderful neighbors and good school district yet able to expand your living space. Or perhaps you want to have an open floor plan and desire to move the bedrooms to the second floor. Whatever your reason may be building onto your present home is a great move if your neighborhood can hold to the increased value and your budget can manage it.
Before and After Second Floor Additions
As you can see by the before and after photos we can transform a rancher or split foyer into a two-story colonial and build up in lieu of out. This is especially beneficial for homeowners that do not have the square footage of property to add an addition to the side or rear of their home. Building up is more invasive for the homeowner and an experienced contractor is needed. Removing a roof over an entire home and keeping the inside safe and sound is of the utmost importance and not impossible for skilled contractors. Take a look at some of our mid-construction photos of several second-floor add-ons.
We are in the business of building and your family is our number one consideration. Our Design-Build team of architects, interior designers, and skilled craftsmen can create for you and your family the home you have longed for without having to relocate. There are many considerations for this type of home makeover such as county codes, setbacks on the property, your existing home and of course budget. Take a look at several of the second-floor additions we have completed over the last 35 years. Then give us a call if you want to discuss a second-floor addition or any home remodeling need for your home. Our goal is to be your trusted expert in all building and remodeling endeavors. We have a long history of home construction in many Maryland neighborhoods.
Onward and Upward!
