From Conventional to Conversions

Most of us think of home additions as an entirely new room or an expansion of an existing room. These are definitely suitable and often satisfy the objective, but some cannot always afford a new room addition to their home. Fortunately, there are many affordable home additions you can consider.

Concierge Home Remodeling is dedicated to helping Los Angeles residents make their homes more suitable for their needs. From home additions to conversions, our team can help find the right type of home addition for you. We may even suggest a type that you may have never considered or even knew existed.

Types of Home Additions

The most common type of home addition is adding space to an existing room. You may want to add several square feet to your kitchen or living room. This process expands the ground floor several square feet to add a room to the house. For many, this is the type of home addition they think of when it comes to the subject. Yet, there are so many other options to consider. Check out what else you can do:

Bump-Out: If you don’t have the budget for any large home additions, then a bump-out is the next best thing. Bump-outs only add a few square feet to a room, but they can do wonders to a bathroom or kitchen. They often look like they have been a part of your home since the beginning, and their cost is significantly less than a traditional expansion.

Enclose the Patio: The patio already has the foundation to become a room. All it needs is a roof and some walls. Enclose your patio to become an excellent semi-outdoor living space. This is a great option for those wanting to extend their living space or add a den to their existing home.

Enclose the Porch: Just like your patio, the porch may also be enclosed to create a nice outdoor living space that isn’t directly in the sunlight or the elements. At the same time, you can convert your porch entirely into an indoor space like an expansion of your living room or entryway.

Second Floor Addition: Out of all the home additions possible, this is one many people overlook. Adding a second story to your home is a great choice if you are unable to expand horizontally. Your neighbors may be too close, or you may want to preserve your backyard. In those cases, expanding upward is a great choice.

Convert a Room: If any of the home additions above are out of the question, then try converting an existing room. Common rooms converted include basements and attics. These rooms are often neglected and can easily be converted into a much more enjoyable space. You’ll save money and time when converting these rooms because they already have the essential foundations.

Build Above Your Garage: Instead of building a second story or if you already have a second story, build above your garage. This could be an attached or detached garage. Either way, you can create a small apartment above the garage or turn it into a master bedroom. You can either connect them to your home for detached garages or keep them separate, depending on what type of addition you are making.

Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU): An accessory dwelling unit or ADU is a secondary living structure on the same property as a primary living structure. ADUs are also known as granny flats, in-law units, cottages, and carriage houses. These units feature a bathroom, kitchen, and living space with fewer square footage. The state of California is pushing for the development of ADUs since they provide much-needed, affordable housing options. ADUs may be detached or attached depending on your budget and your property.

Questions?

Home additions are not easy projects. They can bring up a lot of stress and questions. Our contractors answered a handful of commonly asked questions to help ease you. 

Will zoning laws restrict my ability to build a home addition?

Zoning laws can prevent you from building a home addition. We recommend researching your municipal’s zoning restrictions and contacting our team to learn if a home addition is possible for your property. 

How long does a home addition take?

Building a home addition can take three to four months to complete. Some factors may impact the length of time, such as the size of the addition, weather delays, and potential building delays.

Will the addition match the rest of my home?

Yes! No matter the type of home addition, our team strives to blend a new part of your home into the existing structure. This means using the same materials and installing them correctly to make it seem as if the new room always existed.
