Are you looking to expand your current home? Perhaps you need more space for a growing family or need to accommodate a more substantial home office or workspace. Home additions are a fantastic way to give you the space you require without having to move or change neighborhoods. The cost of a home addition often is often outweighed by the myriad of benefits that extra space and new functionality provides. There are several popular transformations your home can take: 

First Floor Additions

First-floor additions are a great way to expand upon your home's original square footage. First floor additions are popular for those who are looking to escape a small or cramped kitchen or would like to expand upon the floor plan of their ranch home. First-floor additions are an excellent way to incorporate the extra space needed for entertaining or having friends and family over with plenty of space to roam. 

Second Story Additions

Second-story additions are attractive for those who might not have the space to expand their current homes square footage. Second-story additions are also common for those who are looking to incorporate a nursery, teen game room, or extra bedrooms. 

ADU's and Casitas 

If your home permits, an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) or a Casita is a fantastic way to add additional space to your home. ADU's can be used for a variety of situations, including short term rentals, Airbnb's, or hosting the in-laws for an extended period. If you're home's current floor plan doesn't lend itself to building up or building out, an ADU or a Casita may be the perfect option to give you extra space. 

Other Home Additions

Need a space for just you? Maybe you need your own space to watch the big game in peace, or you're looking to add square footage to incorporate that dream bathroom. Whether you're looking for a custom wine cellar, an outdoor kitchen, or a home exercise room, the possibilities are endless when design and construction work seamlessly together.

Home Addition Process

Site Visit and Tour

The Hochuli Team will visit your home, discuss your needs and help you explore the possibilities.  We’ll discuss all the ideas you’ve considered for your room addition, and this meeting will seek to answer several questions:

  • Is your home structurally sound enough to handle the addition?
  • We might need to order a lot survey to verify setbacks
  • Where are the plumbing and electrical lines located, and can they handle the additional capacity?
  • Does it make sense to build up? Build out?

We'll then explore the following options for your home addition: 

  • A connected new structure and foundation
  • Add a bump out to enlarge the bedroom or bathroom
  • Multi-car garage
  • Bedroom suite
  • Chef’s kitchen and great room for entertaining

At the end of the day- the possibilities are endless!

Design and Planning

If we mutually agree that we’re a good fit for the project, a deposit will set your project in motion.

  • We’ll introduce you to our Award Winning Design Team to review and discuss ideas you’ve found in design magazines, Houzz Idea Books or on Pinterest.

Involving our Design Team in Space Planning is a key ingredient to our recipe for a successful project!

  • We’ll work with you to plan the home addition that’s best for your needs. Our Design Team will make suggestions and recommendations for layout and space planning to help you determine what is most functional for your project.
  • We will provide you with upfront pricing for our design, project planning, and architectural services before work begins

Pre-Construction and Plan Development

It’s time to pull it all together.

  • Our team will complete and submit the necessary floor plans, elevations, and specifications required for City Permitting
  • We take the time to make sure all the ‘T’s are crossed’ and ‘I’s dotted’ to ensure the entire team is on the same page, and plan the project so that you experience the least amount of disruption as possible.

While we await final approval from the building department:

  • We will prepare a Firm Price Proposal and Construction Agreement for the project scope
  • We will create the construction schedule
  • We will confirm availability of the crews and trade partners
  • Long lead-time materials and supplies will be ordered
  • We will create a work area that allows us to do our job while providing you with as much undisturbed livable space as possible

Time to Build The Plan

It’s time to tackle the construction of the project. There will be noise, there will be dust, there will be a mess, there will be safety to consider throughout the addition project. But that’s another reason you hired Hochuli Design & Remodeling Team; to manage all of the chaos. Our team will keep you in the loop, and you’ll know what to expect, and when, to help alleviate the stress and headaches of construction.

The Big Reveal

You’ve dreamed, we’ve planned together, we’ve torn up the house, and put it back together; It’s time for the big reveal.

You’ve been able to watch the transformation every day, and now it’s time to enjoy the newly found space.  Or, maybe you’d prefer to wait until it’s complete to take your first look at the new room addition or mother-in-law suite like they do on the TV shows?  That’s fine with us too!

Enjoy it and Show it off!

It’s time to get settled in your new space, invite friends and family over to show it off, and share with them how enjoyable the Hochuli Team made the experience!
