A major addition might be the solution for more space without moving.
Sometimes you outgrow your home. There are only a few solutions to that problem. Most people think about moving to a new house, but the thought of packing up, moving to a new community and having a larger mortgage can be deterrents. The building of a major addition should be considered as a good option. Using some of your home’s equity to hire a professional builder could solve your problems.
The professional builders at B. Chaney Improvements have been adding valuable space to Charleston, SC-area homes for more than a decade and on the East Coast for nearly three. They know exactly how to match a homeowner’s desires with a design and structure that meets every need. These examples include additional living space built and tied into the original house and the finishing of unfinished space. Unused garage, porch and bonus room space often have exceptional potential.
Building Major Additions
Do you need a home office? Do you need more living space, such as a bedroom, bathroom or comfortable family room?
The next question is, can you see how to add that space or do you lack the vision to see a new layout? If not, don’t worry and trust that a meeting with Brad Chaney of B. Chaney Improvements will lead to ideas and opportunities you never thought about for your current home. Brad’s team will listen to the homeowner’s priorities. They will ask questions and formulate ideas to match up with the client’s desires. This process will go on until the homeowner is excited about the plan. It may be a simple addition for that home office need. It could be a multi-room, major addition that includes bedrooms, bathrooms and/or an open living area for the larger family gatherings.
A popular trend is the “in-law suite” for extended family to move in, because they need their own space and to be close to family that can be a help. Aging parents usually need a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living space. These spaces can also be designed with the “aging-in-place” approach. This design allows room and the conveniences for physical limitations that may require walkers, wheel chairs, etc…for the residents.
Finishing Unfinished Spaces and Whole-House Rehabs
Brad has more than two decades of building experience and has tackled every kind of residential building project. It was just a couple years ago that he was asked to renovate and reconfigure an older Lowcountry home for Roberta and Lisa.
The couple was living full-time in Atlanta and decided to do a major remodel of their older Lowcountry home. This meant there had to be a trust factor with anyone they hired in Charleston.
“He’s a very trustworthy guy. He had my best interest in mind the entire time he was working, ” Lisa said. “I felt comfortable with the key to my home in his hands.”
The couple had a local architect draw up plans for the renovation and recommended a number of local builders. After interviewing all of the builders, Brad and the B. Chaney Improvements team was selected.
“He is great at communicating,” Lisa added. “We would text back and forth all the time and, because we weren’t around during the week, he would meet me at the house on the weekends.”
The work included a complete gutting of the main floor of the raised, single-family house. Brad and his crew rebuilt the kitchen, existing bath and closed in part of the wrap-around porch. The additional enclosed space was enough to add a bathroom to the existing bedroom for a master suite, and another bedroom.
Other improvements included new floors, windows, a metal roof and some renovations to the second floor living area.
“He added a lot of windows for great views of the ocean and the marsh. We now have beautiful views from everywhere on the main floor.”
“The quality of his work is outstanding.”
