3. Match New and Existing Designs
In addition to preparing the ground and soil areas for building, you may need a blueprint to orchestrate cohesion between the current home and your planned expansion.
If your current residence is a colonial-style home, your addition should naturally follow suit. The new section should smoothly integrate with the existing structure so that casual observers would never guess that a home extension had been added.
Use the same windows, siding and door designs as you have on your original home.
4. Update Your Landscaping
When the expansion is well under way or finished, you might want to add new landscaping. This should match other landscaped areas of your property unless you plan to redo the entire lawn and garden areas.
While you can add new flowers and shrubs, avoid greenery that differs noticeably from your other landscaped areas.
Building an extension to your current home is an exciting project that will add more room for your family’s growing and changing needs.
Follow steps like these to make sure everything falls into place and complies with local property rules so that your home looks better than ever while providing additional safe, comfortable living space.
