Every homeowner is in a constant battle for more space. Whether it’s for storage or living space, we all just want more room to move in our homes. At some point though, there’s only so much space we can gain by rearranging our furniture and living spaces and we need to look at home additions. But what exactly can we do to gain that space with home additions? Here are our three favourite options!
Enclosing a patio can be a lot of work as you’ll be putting up new walls and a roof, along with a foundation, but if done well can become a wonderful addition to your home. By enclosing a patio that’s easily accessible from your current home, you can add square footage easily.
Likely the most common way to gain square footage in your home is by finishing your basement. Unfinished areas of your home don’t count towards your total square footage, so this option gives you the double advantage of both giving your home more usable space, but also increasing your square footage in the event of resale!
Another option is taking advantage of a one-story attached garage. You can use the base of your garage as an opportunity to build a second story, giving you a potentially large space that can be used for a multitude of possibilities, whether it’s a bedroom, a rec room, or whatever your heart desires!
