“When we bought this house, we thought it was more than big enough,” Kiana said. She laughed and looked out into the back yard, where her two sons, Zachary and Matthew, were playing. “But then life gave us a little surprise.” Kiana is expecting twins in November. “We love the neighborhood. The schools are great. We don’t want to move. But we’re going to need more space. That means an addition!”
Framingham Home Additions: Second Story Additions
“The way our home is situated on our lot really limits our addition options. There’s just no room to build out,” Kiana explained. “That means we have had to go up.” She contacted her Framingham building contractor with her idea. “We explained what we needed to have done, what our budget looks like, and especially our time line.”
Choosing a design/build contractor made the home addition process faster and easier for Kiana’s family. “Our needs are simple and straightforward: we need more space! I didn’t want to have to pay an architect to design two rooms.” A.A. Tofani is a design/build contractor, allowing you to complete your second story addition on time and budget.
Second story additions are a great choice when your single story home simply isn’t large enough. Building up, rather than out, is a smart way to add usable space to your home without increasing your home’s footprint. A second story addition can be the only option on sloped, small, or challenging lots. If you want to maximize the amount of green space on your lot – an important consideration for families that want to garden or enjoy outdoor recreation – a second story addition is the way to go.
