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.
