Starting A Home Addition
Breaking ground on a home addition is no different than new construction. We will take care of the permits, surveys, plotting, and design all before we lift a tool. The safety of your family and our crew depends on these early stages of planning and starting, so we take them very seriously and don’t skip any steps. There can be a phase of demolition as well so we can tie the new home addition into the existing structure.
During A Home Addition
The steps in a home addition can and often do include everything a whole house would need.
- Foundation Pouring
- Sheeting the exteriors
- Wrapping the exteriors
- Plumbing / Electrical Rough Ins
- Windows & Doors
Once the outside is water tight, we move inside and can start finishing things. Typically, there could be one or more trades on-site any given time to accomplish different tasks. A roofer and a siding contractor can be working while the electrician is working inside and so on.
What to Expect During A Home Addition
There will be inspections, there will be waiting, there can be supply chain issues, we plan accordingly for as much as possible but no one can plan for everything. We stay flexible and work with our clients very closely so information is always available and clear to everyone. There is always a choice to be made. Making ourselves available for communication is the number 1 way we stand above our competition, because we want to talk to you and make sure you are comfortable with what is going on.
Should we make drastic changes to the plan, the budget changes too. Very rarely is a change in plans an even swap. Things can be done to save money and lots of things can be done that cost money. The most important thing is to ask. “Is there budget for this…?” of “How can we do this…?”. There is always a way, it’s just not always free.
Finishing A Home Addition
Cypress Hill Development can help you get your home addition done properly and hopefully it will outlast the rest of the house. A truly great home addition is one that doesn’t look like a home addition. Designing a space that looks like it was always intended is the secret and we are happy to share that secret with you on your home addition.
