Smaller home additions have as much impact as large ones.  If you lack the space to expand, it's time to be creative.  Work with the existing structure and add only the things you need.  Here are some ideas for a small and effective home expansion.

Turning unused space into something new is a great cost-saving idea. 

  • Evaluate the home and determine if the space is currently in use.  For example, if you never use the dining room, merge the table with the kitchen and turn that dining room space into something else. Another example is turning a small room into an exercise room, laundry room or walk-in closet.
  • Unused small rooms can attach to the adjacent room to make the space larger.  You will have to knock down the wall separating them, if possible.  For example, merge the dining room space with the kitchen or living room space.
  • Use attic, storage or basement space into something useful.  Additional bedroom, closet space and kids rooms are great examples.

If you do need to tack on additional space, be specific.  You want the investment to be worth every penny. 

  • Add a carport, garage or driveway to the property.  After dents and scratches from being on the side of the street, your car will thank you.  Garages take up so much land, but provide 360-degree shelter for your car.  In addition, people can use the walls of the garage for storage.  A carport is a cheaper option providing sidewalls and a roof for shelter. If you want storage, you can give up space for a small utility closet.  A third option is to create a driveway; while it doesn't shield your car, at least it's off the street.
  • Prefer outdoor gatherings or enjoying the view? A patio, sunroom or deck is your solution.
  1. Sunrooms are enclosed glass chambers where families and friends can enjoy the outdoors without going outdoors.  Place sunrooms near the kitchen, living room or dining room in an area where the outdoor view is breathtaking and the sun hits the room during the day.
  2. Patios are an alternative to sunrooms.  Installation is at the back of the home.  Some patios come with ceilings and walls; some don't.
  3. Decks don't come with ceilings or enclosures, but are a great place to feel the wind, look at the view and host gatherings.  It's great for anyone to be in the thick of outdoor space.
  • Fireplaces bring people together, so it's no wonder it's a popular home addition feature.  Fireplaces come in many shapes and styles.  As far as function, there are three kinds: wood burning, electric and gas.  Choose to install one inside or outside the home.  Place the fireplace in an area where it will be used a lot (patio, living room, kitchen, bedroom or bathroom).

Home additions are large and extravagant operations.  It doesn't have to be.  By being creative, you can get the most out of the space allotted with visually pleasing results.

Its not too difficult to imagine summer temperatures with winter and the drizzley, damp and chilling freeze during the winters in Washington, DC.  Working from October through March allows for swimming when the warm temperatures of spring and summer arrive. alt In this project, Natelli Homes installed a kidney-shaped pool, with a screened porch, a great room with vaulted ceilings and kitchen space for summer outings.  We used JeldWen SiteLine clad windows and slate roofing to match the original custom home that was also built by Natelli.

As with many of our projects, Natelli Homes coordinated the overall site planning, architectural design and construction of the project.
