What to consider before beginning a major home renovation.

You may have done your research and know exactly what you want out of home renovation. You may have a clear goal, budget, and perhaps clippings of inspiration. Even so, there are some essential questions that every homeowner should ask themselves before adding to their home

How would you design your house if you were building it new? Imagine you’re starting from scratch and create your ideal home. Once you have a simple sketch of how you would design your dream home, assess how it comes to your current property and what you can do to ensure you get everything you want. You can look for creative ways to turn your building into your dream home, through an addition, a remodeling project or both.

Will the addition add value to your property? While the value of your home may not seem significant to you if you plan to stay in it for more years to come, you (or your family) may decide to sell it one day. Always consider the resale value of your project so that you know what lies ahead. It’s wise to find what additions give the best return, for example, master bedroom additions, second story additions, and living room additions. Your family will thank you later!

Are there zoning regulations and restrictions? To control and direct property developments, most municipalities have zoning regulations and restrictions. It’s important to understand how your property is zoned. It’s always great to check with your local building department as you begin your project planning

How will the addition tie into the house? Adding to home requires a bit of skill to make it look like it belongs in the home. Not only do you have to ensure that it doesn’t seem too modern or dated in your current property, but it should leverage all the modern amenities available today. You’ll want to consider how to the roofline connects to the house as well as the windows, utilities, heating and cooling aspects, and more. The best way to go about creating a seamless addition is to hire skilled architects.
