We get a lot of requests for home additions – everything from a small walk-in closet addition to a second floor over the garage. If you love your neighborhood and if your home has gotten too small, due to a growing family, or the desire to cook gourmet meals for guests, then it is time to add on to your home.

Many houses have rather small kitchens, and an an expanded kitchen may attract a buyer’s attention and stand out from other similar homes with more conventional, modest kitchens. Having a larger kitchen can also make food preparation and storage easier. Expanding the kitchen is a good time to install new water efficient appliances and low power use refrigerators.
