Boston Home Additions Contractors

Do you love your house, but just wish it were a little…bigger? A home addition can create refreshing new space. However, if it’s poorly done, a home addition is an expensive eyesore. At New England Design & Construction, our design experts won’t let that happen to you. Our goal is to add onto your home in a tasteful, seamless manner, so the addition is practically invisible.

We build home additions for the following:

A home addition gives you so many options:

  • Room for children, relatives, or pets
  • Covered outdoor patio space that integrates with your landscape design
  • A guest room for overnight visitors
  • Craft, office, or hobby space
  • Storage for lawn, home, and/or garden equipment

Our first step in home additions is to discuss what needs this new construction will meet. We want to design something as functional as it is beautiful. Then we practice what we call “complete planning.” We create a detailed 3D rendering and a full set of architectural drawings so you can review exactly what your home addition will look like.

Our Boston home additions contractors don’t stop there, though — we select every single fixture, finish, and material prior to construction. Before we even break ground, you know every detail of the project. That way there won’t be any surprises.

Additions are an excellent fit for our delivery method. Because there are so many elements of design used in creating the best possible space for your family, our thorough design approach allows us to fully plan your project and provide itemized budgets and construction schedules prior to lifting a finger in the actual construction. This has the capability to reduce headaches due to unforeseen circumstances down the road: the industry standard rate for change orders is around 15%. NEDC has been below 3%! A typical addition with our company is in the $150,000 – $450,000 range.

Before, Designed, Built


 

Before: This client was looking to create a backyard oasis where none previously existed. The clients wished to integrate a structure that combined both a one-car garage and a pool house with a patio to complement their new in-ground pool and landscaping. It was important for the structure to appear as if it had always been there. This placed a special emphasis on design and materials to match the existing home.

Designed: This rendering shows the design intention before we constructed it. We matched elements to their existing home, including siding, awning brackets, molding details, tapered Tuscan columns, roofing, and the garage door. The pitch of the roof on the new structure is angled to match the existing home, but in a scale that is appropriate. The back of the structure was angled in such a way that it cannot be seen from the front, yet still allows for the patio to align with the pool for optimal use.

Built: A gate helps conceal its dual functionality and strengthens the change in atmosphere once past it. The metal roof adds a sense of uniqueness and change from the existing home while still fitting in well by using a hipped roof — a play off of a projecting oriel window in the rear of the home.
