Waterfront Home Addition

If you already own a waterfront home but feel it is time for a change, a great option to consider is to have an addition built onto your already existing waterfront home.  Additions can expand living space, such as a family room or a master bedroom, open up the flow of your kitchen or emphasize your waterfront view with a sun room.  Other ideas include building on an in-law suite, a luxury patio, a balcony area built from the second floor- or another entire level!
