Twelve Home Additions to get the space you need for family, entertaining, or just a little privacy!


You could call the bump out minimalist or efficient. At Signature we call it fast and effective. We design build kitchens, additions, and baths. What rooms do most people want to make larger kitchens & baths? Bump out home additions can have a huge impact. Take a look at these simple home additions plan views of a bath remodel & a kitchen remodel. (Plan View - Imagine you are suspended above the floor you are remodeling, and can see through the roof, ceilings and floors above that floor. That is what plan view is.)


The impact of a multiple bump-out home additions plan should be clear in the layout below. There are two hidden benefits to bump outs. First if it is a cantilevered bump out, because it does not expand the foundation it may not be subject to lot set back requirements. Second with a multiple bump home addition plan you don't necessarily have to do them all at once. You probably should plan them all at once for cohesive design, but since there not connected you can do one a year or one every other year.


Adding a full size room on the main floor is often what people think of initially. Of course this option is more costly than bumping out or expanding or converting attic space. There are two chief advantages over less costly methods. First for resale purposes you have indisputably added square footage, one of real estate appraiser's main ingredients for assessing the market value of your home. Second boosting the square footage of the main floor has a direct impact on family activities, around the kitchen, family room or sun room. Think about the impact to a child of a consistent Sunday ritual of Dad making breakfast, or Mom, Grandma, and all the sisters making Thanksgiving turkey in a kitchen large enough for all to gather round, or Sunday football with family & friends in large family room addition. All are bound to make your home more livable, enjoyable and valuable, especially if the space you have now cannot address these needs. It is a larger investment. You will have to consider, excavating footers, foundation walls, framing, windows and doors, trusses and roofing materials as well as heating, ventilation, plumbing and electrical to a far greater degree than for a bump out addition or basement remodel. But in the end it could make all the difference in resale value and enjoyment.


Sometimes the space you need is already at hand. An existing garage may provide convertible space for an au pair or an auxiliary apartment to bring parents or children closer to home. A deck or porch may already provide substantial infrastructure for a main level expansion. This may provide all of the benefits of a full size room home additions, at a lower level of investment.
