Several aspects of home addition construction must be decided prior to the design of the home addition floor plan. Take, for instance, your home’s existing structure. What shape is it in? And what about walls in the area you plan to build the addition; are they “load bearing?”
Will the construction of your home support an addition at the chosen point; roof, walls, floor, and foundation? And what type temporary supports will be required during the construction stage of your home addition idea? This will be determined by the framing style of your home.
Another important consideration is the style and layout of your home. This will determine home addition design. You will need to consider your home’s various systems: wiring, plumbing, and HVAC.
These considerations are important and require much forethought and planning in your final design. K Construction and Remodeling can assist you with all of the details necessary to begin your home addition project.
