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.

MainStreet Design Build exceeded my expectations with quality. They completed the work beautifully. The workers are super kind and helpful. They helped me move furniture and cleaned up and put away some things. They are very professional.
“I am still enjoying the QUALITY work that the Mainstreet team performed on my Kitchen, Dining room, Laundry room, Pantry as well as the terrific work on the three bathrooms! Christine, I’m still receiving compliments on all the colors and tiles and all the rest of your work you and JoAnne did together! Steve – STILL loving the design to keep the kitchen/dining area open and actually INCREASE cabinet space! Everything is working well and looking new!”
“MainStreet has been very easy to work with. All dealings have been handled in a very professional manner and we have always had the feeling that they are working for us. Their workmen are quite skilled and the subcontractors all do quality work. We get the feeling that they are concerned about doing the job right. We will use them again and highly recommend them to others. Their work is something we proudly show off to others and often get nice unsolicited comments from others. You can not go wrong with MainStreet Design Build. As you can tell, we are happy we chose them for our project.”
We love where we live – but we needed to add more space for our growing family. We were impressed with Steve’s design suggestions for better use of space and enhancements to our plans. They really do focus on quality and integrity in every aspect of their work.
Mainstreet is a quality company with quality employees.
What an amazing group of individuals from the top on down. Main Street touts itself as taking the worry out of your project from beginning to end. And that is so true! What a great group of people. For my project, I only had a select few. But, from Steve and Christine to Kevin and Rick, the experience was amazing. First, Steve put up with my details for my pergola (which he probably regrets-just kidding). Then, Rick, the project manager was always there to answer a question, or knocking on my door for any concerns. Lastly, Kevin is a treasure. I get up early and would text Kevin and he would be answering within 5 minutes. Telling me he was on any concerns I had. I could go on. The finished project is beyond my expectations. Its all in the details. The final pergola fits so well to the frame of my house, even the tiny detail around the gutter. The height is awesome. Matching my stone to pre-existing stone, makes it look like its part of the original house and not an “add on”. I am so amazed at my finished project! Additional thanks for using Walpole-this time. The detail in the pergola really is amazing. My pergola looks like no one else’s. I will definitely be using them again for projects I have in my for the future. When you give them a project, all your headaches are gone for looking for contractors. That leaves you all the time for looking for your tile, etc. What a great idea to have a company to complete a project from beginning to end and have QUALITY contractors to do it!! I could go on, but this would get too long. Thank you so much to MSD.
Christopher provided the vision and helped execute the plan. He was so helpful guiding me in all selections and making sure we stuck to our plan. My kitchen refresh is everything and more. My kitchen now looks like it belongs in my home and really is a “wow” feature. I just love, love, love the way it came out!
Thank you to the entire team for making our home ‘fit’ us! From the first consultation, you understood this wasn’t about trying to make a small house huge. We needed it to suit our lives better, and that is what you gave us.
The MainStreet Design Build contractors who did the work were very professional, very courteous, and on time. We had a wonderful experience.
“It was an amazing experience. The quality and level of professionalism are great with this company.”
