In-Law Suites

In-law suites, or as some like to affectionately call them, out-law suites, have become a very common type of room addition for many homeowners today. For whatever reasons, more and more parents are opting to move in with their children and are enjoying the best of both worlds.

Many retirees today travel and feel comfort in knowing they have a place to come home to and a place where they can enjoy being with their children and grandchildren. For may people, it is a win / win situation. Ahhh, the joys of being a grandparent.

For more information on the possibility of adding an in-law suite to your home, or adding another type of one and two story room addition to your home, you can contact  American Housing Remodeling at 727-546-6611 for a free, no obligation quote.

 

FLORIDA’S ONE AND TWO STORY ROOM ADDITION CONTRACTOR

 

There are as many reasons for adding a room addition on to your home as there are people who own homes. A few reasons might be: because they like where they live and don’t want to move, or they like the schools their children attend, or they are close to their favorite stores for shopping, or they have many good friends and neighbors where they are living now, or they live close to their favorite links and love to play golf, or maybe they live on the water and enjoy watching the sun rise or set on their back deck. For whatever reasons, there are many people who just want to stay where they are and add on to their existing home because they simply know it would be difficult to find another place quite as nice to live.

As people’s lifestyles change, so do their needs and wants. As a person gets older there are many changes that will occur that will affect their lifestyle and what type of home they will want or need. Then, as time goes on, there will be other factors that will determine what type of home they will desire. Like most of us, you get married and have children and that usually means you may need a little larger home with extra bedrooms and bathrooms. Then as your children grow up, there comes a time when your children will want to move out, but then by that time you may have parents that need a place to stay, and then you never know, your children may want to move back home for a while. “When will it all end?” you ask yourself. But then the time will finally come when your parents will be back on their own and your children will move back out and you will finally say to yourself, “Free at last,” “free at last,” but now what do we do?

Ahhh! This may be the time in your life when you can do what you want to do. Maybe you have always wanted an oversized garage to put your collection of motorcycles or antique cars in, or maybe even that workshop you have always wanted. Or maybe you always wanted a room to showcase your collectables or a room to work on your hobbies, or just a room to call your own and do whatever you want. Something very popular today is a media room where you can entertain friends. A room where you can watch movies, HGTV or a football game without being disturbed. You could even have a popcorn machine off to the side making popcorn while you are watching your favorite movie on that big screen TV. There is something about the smell of popcorn that makes a movie seem even better.

As your lifestyle changes, there may come a time when you realize that you need a larger master suite or a larger living area with maybe a new kitchen and a new bathroom. After all, your home is a special place. Your home is a place where you can relax, entertain, and escape the realities of the real world. Your home is your castle and sometimes you just need to make some changes. You may not want to go as far as adding a “mote” around your castle, even though your neighbors would be really jealous, and instead just go with a new “re-mote” for that big screen TV in your new media room instead. Just a thought.

So, whether it is a one story or two story addition you are considering, a room addition can be an exciting venture for any homeowner. It is a chance to transform your existing home into something extraordinary in order for you and your family to better enjoy the comforts of life. So, as the economy continues to improve, it may be the perfect time for you to consider adding that extra room on to your home and American Housing Remodeling is the right company that can do it for you. We will work with you from conception to completion and will take care of all of the design work, plans and permitting and building of the project.

BUILDER / REMODELER CHECKLIST

Redington Beach 2nd Story Room Addition

American Housing Remodeling, Inc. wants to be your remodeling contractor, but we know we have to earn your trust first. This is a great checklist from the NAHB that will help you select the right home builder or home remodeler to work on or build your home. After checking us out, we feel confident that you will see why so many others have selected American Housing to be their builder for life.

  • Ask family, friends or coworkers for recommendations.
  • Make sure the builder or home remodeler has a permanent business location and a good reputation with local banks and suppliers.
  • Find out how long they have been in the building business. It usually takes three to five years to establish a financially sound business. You want to make sure they will be around after the construction is complete to service any warranties.
  • Check out the company’s rating and if there have been any complaints filed with your local Better Business Bureau: http://www.bbb.org/.
  • Make sure the builder/remodeler has sufficient workers compensation and general liability insurance. If not, you may be liable for any construction-related accidents on your premises.
  • Ask the builder/remodeler to provide you with names of previous customers. If they won’t, beware. If they do, ask the customers if they would hire the builder/remodeler again.
  • Ask if you can see the builder/remodelers work, both completed and in progress. Check for quality of workmanship and materials.
  • Do you feel you can easily communicate with the builder/remodeler? Remember you will be in close contact with them throughout the construction process and afterward as you live in your new home.
  • Make sure the builder/remodeler provides you with a complete and clearly written contract. The contract will benefit both of you. If you are having a new home built, get and review a copy of the home warranty and homeowner manual as well.
  • Be cautious of unusually low-priced bids. If the builder/remodeler is unable to pay for the materials and labor as the project proceeds, this may indicate a potential problem. Keep in mind that less expensive does not necessarily mean better!
