There are several ways to create more space in your home. If you renovate your existing space but desire more room, more light or a different setting, home additions are a great investment. Prior to building, there are a few things you need to research. You need to know what your options are for putting an addition on your house. You need to consider the following things:

  • Visit your town’s zoning board to determine property setback requirements.
  • The location of your well
  • Septic tank and leach field
  • Drainage and utility easements
  • Underground utilities

These are just a few things that will determine where you can build your room addition. These things will also be considered by the building inspector when you try to obtain a building permit. Take pictures of the side of your house where you imagine your new addition. Notice roofing lines and seams within the home. Look at the plot plans of your home to make sure you can build what you want.

However, you do not have to take on the burden of home remodeling on your own. Wyeth Woodworking and Remodeling and its subcontractors will take you from start to finish with your home addition, helping determine if your house and land meet the zoning criteria to obtain a building permit. When we give you a quote for your new addition, we will provide you with a cost breakdown list of every phase of the project. We will take time to develop a room addition plan what includes both exterior and interior options—from floor layout and the shape to finishing touches and paint colors.

The room addition process can be daunting having to consider electric, plumbing, permits, drawings, dimensions, costs, framing, materials and foundation. Do not let this prevent you from doing your research and selecting the contractor that will give you the best room for your money. Wyeth Woodworking and Remodeling will do our best to accommodate your needs and work with you in every step of the home addition process. Inquire about all the line items in a room addition bid, and make sure to ask every question on your mind. It’s your space, shouldn’t you be the most satisfied?
