Can you update an older home to provide more space for a growing family while still preserving the look, charm, and aesthetic appeal of the original home? We certainly think so! Let us share some of the strategies our clients have used to enjoy more living space:
Ashland: The Second Story Addition
New twins are on the way, your college graduate is moving back home, or your parents need a place to stay? In Ashland, a second story addition is a popular choice. Going up rather than out respects lot size restrictions: there are no worries about getting too close to the neighbor’s property line. A second story addition can be the same size and dimensions as the lower story. It can also be smaller. Working with a design/builder like AA Tofani means you’ll have a streamlined, efficient process that results in the look you want, the high-quality construction you demand, all while being treated with respect and courtesy.
Ashland: Finishing the Basement
Another option to add living or storage space to your home is to have your Ashland building contractor finish the basement. Unfinished basements are wasted space, whereas a finished basement can provide valuable square footage to your home. Some families use the new space for laundry rooms, storage, and more. Other families use finished basements as apartments for adult children who have returned home, or for parents or in-laws. Worries about the basement being dark can be addressed by an experienced Ashland building contractor who knows how to expand entranceways and increase the amount of natural light that makes it into the basement.
