Home Remodeling Oakland County MI

Are you feeling cramped in your current living space, but aren’t willing to part from your home?

We understand that your home can hold many good memories that make moving difficult when you need more space. Home additions can become an attractive option to homeowners when their family or income grows. Either way, an experienced Oakland County home building contractor can help you decide the best way to expand your home.

Extra Bedroom

Whether you are expecting a new addition to the family or having an aging parent move in, a spare bedroom can give you the space you need while still being able to stay in your home. An extra bedroom can also come in handy for when relatives are staying over, especially during the holiday season. Whatever you decide to do with an extra bedroom, many homeowners appreciate having the extra space in their home. You might find it easier to get along with family members when you have more space.

Expanded Kitchen

A big family requires a big kitchen. Not only do you need space to prepare meals, but you also need enough storage space for food, bulky kitchen appliances, and other kitchen overflow items. It’s hard to use your kitchen when there’s too much clutter on the kitchen countertops. This is why many homeowners decide to build pantries or storage rooms off of their kitchens. A knowledgeable home building contractor can help you determine the best way to expand your kitchen.

Attic Conversion

What’s more cozy than an attic bedroom tucked under the eaves of your home? Not only does converting your attic create more space in your home, but it also makes better use of the room you already have. Your home remodeling contractor will make sure that the attic has the necessary support for everyday foot traffic.


Adding a sunroom can make it difficult to sell your home. Most homebuyers aren’t willing to live with a room with glass walls that’s often too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. However, if you plan on staying in your home for years to come, you may be interested in building a sunroom. Sunrooms are perfect for people who want to enjoy the outdoors without having to actually be outside. While sunrooms may not be for everyone, they do help bring more natural light to your home.

Living Room

An added living room may be the perfect space to entertain guests or hang out with family. Depending on the space you have in your yard, a living room may be the perfect way to make better use of space. If you have a gorgeous view from your home, you may benefit greatly by building a room that faces the view and has generous windows. The overall return on investment for home additions depends on how the new space adds to the functionality and beauty of your home.
