Room Addition / Sun Room Addition
House starting to feel a little bit cramped? There are lots of reasons for that. Your family may simply have grown, or over time your possessions may have accumulated. You might now be working from home, or have taken up a new pass time that demands more space. Or you just might be feeling growing pangs. Of course you could buy a larger home, but there are so many objections to that. Aside from the fuss and the finance you probably feel, well, at home in your home. Maybe schools and workplaces are already settled with the house you have and you don't want to have to disrupt your life and that of your family. Yet you could do with just a little more space? Well there's a way. By adding a room, or a dedicated sun room you can extend your home outwards and give yourself a little elbow room while creating a gorgeous space to enjoy on your own or with family and friends. Does adding a room involve building codes and planning permission? That depends, which is why you want to come and talk to our experts about just what you might be able to enjoy, what it would add to the value of your home, and what we need to do for you to make it happen with full compliance to local authority regulations.
Three Season Sun Rooms
Call it a sun lounge, a solarium, a conservatory, or even a Florida room the sun room is a glassed in space that extends your living space into the outdoors in fair weather which works perfectly here in California.
Four Season Sun Rooms
A four season sun room is one that is intended to put up with whatever the weather all year round and so the construction is a little more robust and the temperature control systems – insulation, ventilation, and heating – a little more sophisticated to ensure that whatever it's like outside you're as cozy as possible.
A very cost effective alternative to a full sun room is a screen room or porch constructed of lightweight materials and intended for use in pleasant weather which gives you another room to relax in outside of your home.
Attics offer a great opportunity to expand your living space upwards and outwards and include a number of styles depending on what you want to use them for. Attics can be converted into guest bedrooms, a peaceful study or home office, or simply be transformed into more organized and protected storage space than the mound of boxes and clutter that normally ends up there. Talk to us about how to expand the headroom of attics with different styles of roofing or to install a dormer window for space and light. There are some technical considerations with attics, mostly to do with upgrading the wiring and also modifying the plumbing, especially if you currently have a hot water storage tank up there but we can show you ways of getting around that including switching to more efficient and economical on demand water heaters that take up far less space.
