Finish your basement

Do you want to create more living space in your home without the hassle of moving out and renting another house? At Habermehl, we can help you turn your basement space into anything from additional bedrooms to an entertainment room with a pool table or arcade games. 

It’s easy to turn a basement into a rec room or game room with simple additions like built-in shelving, carpeting, and paint. However, this requires assistance from an expert designer. Whatever the size of your basement or how you plan to use it, it’s important for the space to achieve its full potential.

Attic conversion

An attic remodel is a great way to add extra space to your home without paying for a whole home addition.

Attic conversions are commonly done when no other rooms in the house need expansion and can improve your home’s livability. They can also be part of larger renovations or additions that include new rooms or living spaces.

The attic should be amenable to insulation and ventilation requirements mandated by the area’s building code. It should also support the weight of additional flooring without compromising its integrity or causing damage to your home.

If you’re planning on installing a new dormer window, you may need a permit from your local municipality to ensure compliance with zoning regulations and building codes.

Expand the kitchen with an open floor plan

Expanding your kitchen increases your home’s value, but can be expensive and time-consuming. Fortunately, we offer affordable ways to expand your kitchen without breaking the bank. One of these options is to create an open floor plan where rooms are connected. This allows for increased space and more flexibility in your design. 

We encourage homeowners who want to increase their kitchen to consider a breakfast bar and extending the counters into the adjacent dining room. This option allows you to keep the original layout of your home intact while adding space for cooking.

Open floor plans offer versatility for the way you live today and are great for family kitchen dinner schemes. Open-floor kitchen ideas are also all about space; space to cook, space to entertain, and space for the whole family to gather and just be together.

Remodeling exterior rooms

Exterior remodeling projects are a great way to update your home. A new patio or deck makes your house more attractive and increases its value, while an addition creates more space for guests and family members.

Exterior rooms offer great opportunities for customization and personalization. Our designers can help you turn your patio into an outdoor kitchen by adding grills, sinks, and refrigerators for entertaining guests during the summer.

We recommend hiring a home additions contractor if you plan on making major changes to your home’s structure. This ensures that all necessary permits are obtained, and proper building codes are followed to guarantee your home is safe and watertight.

Adding an extra story

Adding an extra story addition can add square footage to your home and living space without moving out of your neighborhood or having to find a new home. However, adding a story requires a professional who understands the area’s construction codes and has experience.

Hiring a team of architects, designers, and construction engineers with years of experience is essential. They can help you determine whether a two or three-story building is suitable for your space. 

Adding a story may require structural changes, such as adding supports for the new floor above. It also requires that electrical wiring, plumbing, heating, and cooling systems be upgraded to support the additional load on them.

Adding an extra story to your home adds a full or partial additional level to your home, and done right, the addition can completely transform your space into your dream home.

Build an outdoor room addition
