Additions & Dormers

Why buy a bigger house somewhere else if you can expand the one you have? If there’s enough space on your lot to change the footprint of your house, or enough room to expand up and out, an addition or dormer is a better way to gain more living space.

Additions

3060948698_980e56c34e_zYou could add a dining nook off the kitchen to make room for family and entertaining. Or build a studio, home office, den or guest room. We’ll help you determine what kind of addition is appropriate within the allowances of your lot size and setback requirements.

Then, we’ll handle everything, from the foundation to the roof, the plumbing to the electrical, and everything in between.

It’s also important to know how an addition will affect the flow of your home. We’ll make sure your new addition matches your house’s existing design characteristics both inside and out, paying close attention to architectural details and finish carpentry.

Dormers

3060095951_66f1f66145_bWhen you simply need more living space, a dormer is a great solution. Like an addition, it’s an investment that improves both your quality of life and your home’s re-sale value.

How about a gable dormer in front, with a shed dormer in the back? Dormers are cost effective because you don’t have to change the footprint of your house. Done correctly, they can also add architectural interest and curb appeal.

Particularly for vintage homes, it’s essential to respect the existing lines of the house. For this reason, Complete Construction uses recycled building materials whenever possible, matching the dimensional lumber that was used when your house was built.

This allows for seamless continuity inside and out, making it nearly impossible to tell which part of your house is original and which part is the addition. And while all our work is done to code, even building inspectors have been fooled by our attention to detail!
