Teardowns & Additions

What Is Your Vision?

The first thing you need to do is imagine how you want the end result of your addition or rebuild to look. Do you want to update your home to a more contemporary look, create more space, knock down and start fresh or renovate parts of your home? These types of projects make your home life better and add value to your property. Down the road, if you plan on selling your home, you’ll likely get that money back from your investment.

When you’re thinking about the work you want to be done on your home, the cost is an important thing to take into account. Here are a few projects and their estimated costs:

  • Demolition: The average cost of demolishing a house is at least $18,000. The cost is broken down from preparing the site for demolition, doing any rebuilds and preparing for any hazards.
  • Adding square footage: The cost of expanding your home can cost anywhere from $80 to $200 per square foot that’s added.
  • Remodels: The cost of a remodel will depend on the room you’re remodeling. A kitchen remodel, one of the most common home renovation projects, can cost more than $20,000 on average.

Once you’ve decided how you want your home to look and feel after the project is finished and what your budget is, you need to find the right type of addition that will make your vision a reality.

Types of Home Additions

Here are a few different types of projects that Design. Build. Modular. can do to turn your home into your dream home:

  • Second story additions: Turn your one-story house into a two-story home. This project will add more living space and storage compared to your current floor plan.
  • Side additions: A side addition will make a current room bigger or give you a new, separate room. Use your side addition for a living room, dining room, mud room or a bigger kitchen.
  • In-law apartments: Do you have family that visits frequently, or do you want to augment your income by putting this space up for rent? An in-law apartment addition is a great project for your home.

Benefits of Modular Home Additions

Besides adding value to your home and improving your home life, here are a few extra benefits of completing a modular home addition:

  • Less intrusion: Because most of the work is done at a different site with a modular addition, you won’t have as much noisy construction going on at your home.
  • Faster turnaround: Modular home additions can be completed much faster than projects that use different construction methods.
  • Efficiency: With our streamlined process, durable materials, options for customization and available financing, you only need to sign once — with us.
