Recently Completed Project – Detached Garage in Centreville VA

April 25, 2019 | 0 Comments »

Seems like everyone wants and needs more storage space at their homes, and garages are definitely one of our most popular addition requests. How many of us actually have two cars in a two car garage? Or is a “one car, one lawnmower, four bikes, one weed-whacker, six lawn chairs, thirteen pool noodles, two trashcans, a snow-blower, and sixteen boxes of holiday decorations” scenario more familiar?

We recently designed and built a gorgeous detached, two car garage in the Northern Virginia town of Centreville – and the Home Owners couldn’t be happier with the final results.

One of the biggest challenges with a garage addition, whether it’s attached or detached, is aesthetically tying it in perfectly to the existing home. No one wants to drive up to a beautiful home with what appears to be a boring, unappealing box slapped on. With this Centreville garage, a lot of attention was paid to the details that make it a perfect match for the beautiful home.

Home Additions in Northern Virginia- Build Up or Out?

April 03, 2019 | 0 Comments »

Many of the homes in Northern VA were built decades ago when common home layouts and sizes were much different. If you are finding that you don’t have enough functional living space in your home, it might be time to add an addition. This space can include a guest room, a master suite, a playroom, a family room, or whatever is most advantageous to for your family. By building up (adding a second story) or out (a ground floor addition), you’ll add a lot of new space to your home.

Before starting, here are some considerations to keep in mind:

  1. Is there room for an addition? For example, is your yard large enough to accommodate an addition to your home?
  2. What are you missing in your home? How will this new space meet your family’s needs?
  3. How feasible is it to make the changes you’d like to make? Would you need to make significant changes to your home in order to do so?
  4. What are you comfortable spending on this project?
