“If there’s one thing I wish I’d known when I was shopping for my first home, it’s that you can never have enough storage space.” Rachel M. stood outside her Natick, MA home. “When we bought this place, it seemed huge. I never imagined we’d fill it up. But now, two kids and fifteen years later, there’s just not enough room for all of our stuff.”
Sound familiar? Many Natick families face the challenge of not having enough storage space. The older homes in our region are notorious for their lack of closet space. If you don’t have a spacious attic, where are you going to put all of your things. That’s when it’s time to talk to your Natick building contractor about a home addition.
There are several ways to add storage space to your home. The most popular is having a garage built. A garage addition can protect your car from the elements – kind of a big deal, considering our New England winters! – while simultaneously providing the space you need to store sports gear, lawn care items, camping equipment, holiday decorations and more. Natick garage additions can be designed to accommodate one, two, or even three cars.
Other ways to add storage space to your Natick home include having a room built on, or a second story addition. Having a room addition added on the ground floor is a great idea for families who have members that are getting older or who may be facing mobility challenges – no need to climb stairs! A second story addition is a great way to increase the storage capacity of your home without increasing the footprint of your home – a sometimes critical condition depending on how your home is positioned on your lot.
