Room Addition Construction
Home expansions have become very common in Los Angeles. One of the main reasons our clients consider a home addition is to accommodate their growing families. The most common type of room addition is a grand master suite and a spa like master bathroom. Home owners are also maximizing their property by building ADU’s. Our Project Managers have room additions down to a science. We work on the technical details of the expansion, while setting you up with everything you need from early construction planning to material sourcing, obtaining permits and obtaining certificate of occupancy. Your assigned Project Manager partners with you on all aspects of the addition from start to final inspection. Things to consider before your next addition:
- Room Addition Options. It is important to be mindful of your existing floor plan and strategically expand to sustain the natural flow of your home.
- Contractor vs. Design Build. Deciding on the right team for your addition is another key
factor. As a General Contractor we enjoy creating a partnership with our client and
- Now vs. Later. When interviewing clients during our pre-construction stage, the most
common question is “should I expand out, or reconfigure my interior space?” It is
important to decide on a future plan when considering a room addition.
If you’re considering a home remodel, it’s okay to think outside of your existing square footage. Adding another room is a popular service within the building industry, and for good reason. It can open up new possibilities in terms of layout and functionality, allowing you to more fully realize your vision of what your home should look like. To help you get started, we’ve gone ahead and answered some of the questions that might arise when considering a room addition:
What are the most common types of room additions?
When it comes to remodeling your home, MODAA’s professional team takes every possibility into account. In past remodels we’ve added everything from children’s playrooms to home offices.
Here are some ideas to kickstart your imagination:
- Grand master bedrooms
- Spa-like master bathrooms
- Second-story additions
- Family rooms, playrooms, and home offices
- Garage and workspace expansions
- Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) investment opportunities
Among the options listed above, ADU’s, master bedrooms and bathrooms are probably the most popular. But choosing a room addition is always a personal experience — at the end of the day, it’s about what you think your home needs to truly shine.
What are some limiting factors?
Of course, not every home can support every kind of room addition. You’ll likely be limited by the size of your lot, your budget, and any potential use and variance restrictions in your area. Fortunately, our professional team at MODAA can help you navigate all of these obstacles to arrive at a solution that’s both practical and stunning.
Prior to starting the process, we can help you come up with a checklist to ensure that your room
addition will be as seamless as possible. Here are some initial tips to consider:
- Stay true to the original style of your home. Unless you are planning a redesign of the entire building, the addition should look seamless and authentic.
- Adhere to local restrictions. It’s a good idea to ask your local building and safety department about variance restrictions and setbacks. We can be a valuable asset in determining the best approach for your investment properties.
- Leave room for your backyard. Be sure that you’re allocating enough space for your yard by factoring in patios, decks, and other exterior construction resulting from the addition.
- Set up a temporary living space. You’ll need a kitchen and temporary bathroom to access during construction.
