Initial Assessment and Planning

The project began with a detailed inspection of the existing structure to assess its condition and identify necessary upgrades. The homeowners desired additional bedrooms and a family room, leading to comprehensive planning that addressed both structural enhancements and system upgrades.

Excavation

Careful excavation work was conducted to prepare the site for construction while minimizing disruption to the surrounding area. Obstacles impacting the foundation’s stability were removed to ensure a solid base for the new addition.

Installation of New Supports

Structural supports were strategically installed to ensure the stability and integrity of the new living space. Reinforcements were meticulously connected to the existing structure to create a seamless transition and long-lasting support.

HVAC and Electrical Upgrades:

To enhance comfort and efficiency, a new HVAC system was installed to regulate indoor climate effectively. The electrical system was upgraded to accommodate the increased demand from the expanded living area, ensuring safety and reliability.

Energy-Efficient Enhancements:

Energy-efficient windows and insulation were carefully selected and installed to improve thermal performance. These enhancements not only contribute to lower energy consumption but also enhance the overall comfort and sustainability of the home.

Finishing Touches

The final stages of the project focused on transforming the new space into a welcoming and functional area. High-quality finishes were applied to walls and floors, integrating seamlessly with the existing home’s style while creating a comfortable living environment for the family.

OUR APPROACH

By working closely with the supply chain and the client, we implemented innovative, efficient, and cost-effective solutions to various issues identified during the planning and execution phases. These challenges were identified and resolved early to avoid impacting the project timeline.

We utilized advanced construction techniques, including specialized structural supports and energy-efficient enhancements, to ensure the addition was strong, stable, and sustainable.
