Add Valuable Square Footage to Your Home
Is your family outgrowing your home’s capacity? Do you need an extra bedroom, home office, or private workspace for the kids? Do you want an open layout floor plan or crave a gourmet kitchen with lots of storage? A new addition may be exactly what you need. A home addition is a great way to add the necessary square footage to improve your family’s quality of life.
Whether you’re building up, building out, or remodeling a basement, hiring an experienced contractor with a proven track record and happy clients is critical. Avoid otherwise costly mistakes by properly planning, designing, budgeting, and building your new home addition with a reputable design-build firm like MainStreet. Since the overall process is more costly and complex than a typical home remodeling project, here are some helpful tips to get you thinking about a home addition and if it’s right for you.
If your home was built in the early to mid-1900s, like many of the Michigan homes built in our area, you want a home renovation that looks like it was originally part of the house and altered to fit today’s lifestyle.
MainStreet Design Build is uniquely qualified to do just that—representing 30+ years of experience authentically matching design details with the architectural style and integrity of homes in Birmingham, Bloomfield, Royal Oak, Pleasant Ridge, Troy and other select areas of metro Detroit.
The MainStreet design team will walk you through a simple three-phase process to assist you in the planning, design, and budgeting of your new addition.
We begin by documenting all existing conditions, proceed with conceptual floor plan drawings and then work collaboratively with you to create a realistic budget for your home addition project.
Phase II—Detailed Design
We continue by turning those conceptual drawings into detailed three-dimensional renderings. We then work with you to establish realistic material allowances and proceed by producing a complete and realistic cost estimate for your room addition project.
Phase III—Construction Documentation
The final phase takes place once we have entered into a construction agreement. We start by creating a construction schedule and proceed with full working permit drawings. Then, we finish by working closely with you to make all of your final material selections.
