Every addition is, by definition, also a remodeling project because the existing home has to be remodeled to some extent to accommodate the addition.
We had a house in the recent Parade of Homes. Of course, as an old remodeling contractor I didn’t build a new house for the parade. It was the first remodeled house in the Parade in 15 years.
Not only did we get an award, which requires, a score of at least 95% on all six judges scores, in any category, but our combined score was 99.9%.
Mother-in-Law Addition with new garage and expanded kitchen
Frequently we’ve been asked to add a number of rooms and renovate, modify and remodel part of the existing home at the same time. In this project we created a mother-in-law suite incorporating Aging-in-Place senior modifications, built a garage, rebuilt the wall adjacent to it, removed a small galley kitchen, then built a large area where we created a new spacious kitchen and remodeled an existing bathroom, all at the same time.

Historical Preservation Addition
Gold Award Winner
Parade of Homes Winner
Historical Preservation is remodeling but is limited stylistically, on the exterior, to matching the period in which the home was built. This home was built in 1941. A flat roof porch, supported by 6”x6” posts, was later enclosed with block in 1965, and bore no resemblance to the original home.
Outside Kitchen is part of garage and breezeway Addition
Gold Award Winner
Sometimes the addition is large and dramatic like this one. This outside kitchen is only a portion of a multi-room addition including a 3 car garage, full sized bathroom, dumbwaiter lift to attic storage, and 3 large storage areas which together totals 3,200 Sf. We built the original home for them seven years earlier, when he said we would add the garage and pool later. Three years after this addition we added the dining room he said we would build. He always did what he said he would do.
Two Story Redwood Addition with Garage and Breezeway.
The first phase was a large addition, which nearly doubled the size of the home, and a major interior remodeling project. The small second floor bedroom was greatly expanded with a large dormer on the west side. During the second phase, a year later, we built the large garage with the breezeway connecting it to the original house, at the kitchen door.
Family Room Addition
More often the addition is a simple expansion of the home to increase the living area. The photo is the family room which was added. The result – to the client’s delight – is that it’s almost impossible to distinguish on the exterior where the existing house ends and the addition begins.
