When it is Time to Add on!

When it comes to adding a room addition on to your home, it can be a very concerning and stressful decision in itself and then you have to figure out how to get the process rolling.

The first thing to do is to try and figure out exactly what it is you want to do and how much room you will want to add on. For example, do you need another bedroom, another bathroom or do you just need to add more living space on to your home. Once you have decided what type of room, or rooms you want to have built, then try and think about how it can be done. It may be more feasible to add on to the back of your home, or sometimes even the side of your home if there is enough room. Remember, when trying to decide where to add that extra room you must consider access. You don’t want to be having to walk through a bedroom or a bathroom to get to another bedroom or a living area. So try and keep access in mind when trying to decide how to layout that added room.

Next, try and determine how much money you are able and willing to spend. That in itself will help to determine how much space and how elaborate your project will be. One of the most important things to do when designing a room addition is to remember that you want to enhance your home and to keep intact the style and design of your home as it is now.

Another possible way to go when trying to decide how to add on is up. Sometime the best way to add on to your existing home is to add a second story on to your home. It may be more expensive, but you will have fewer limitations.

If you have been thinking about giving your home a facelift anyway, now would be a good time to do it. While adding a room addition on to your home, it would be a great time for retrofitting your existing home with new roofing shingles, new energy efficient windows or maybe just a fresh paint job. Remember to try and take all these things into consideration when planning for your project.

The next thing you are going to want to do, and this is the important part, is to call American Housing Remodeling, Inc.

The Money Squeeze!

Like most businesses, American Housing has had to tighten its belt over the past few years and now that production cost increases again loom on the horizon, we will soon be having to add these increases on to the price of our one and two story Room Additions.

Over the past couple of months, we have been put on notice by several of our suppliers that material prices will be increasing by the end of the year. They have informed us that because of increases they have had to bear in obtaining health, auto and liability insurances, along with having to pay more for diesel fuel for the transporting of the materials, they can no longer absorb these costs and are being forced to increase the price of their products.

So far, we have been informed that concrete products will increase by 15%, steel rebar and rebar products will increase by 10%, all metal truss straps, anchor bolts and wire mesh will increase by 15%, all masonry bag goods will increase by 15% and drywall materials may increase by as much as 35%.

We at, American Housing, would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our past customers for allowing us to be your builder and thank you for supporting us throughout the years. The past few years have been difficult for those in the building industry, but because of the loyalty of our customers, we have survived this anemic building climate and we look forward to working with our new customers in the exciting years to come.

So, if you, or anyone you know is interested in a one or two story Room Addition, please call us at 727-546-6611, so we can lock in at today’s pricing.

INDIA: A LAND OF UNIQUE CULTURES

American Housing understands that there are many diverse cultures that make up America today. These different cultures are one of the reasons why America is so unique, and so great, in today’s world.

As new a home builder and remodeler, we have had the pleasure of working with many people from some of the different and wonderful cultures from around the world that now make up the Tampa Bay area, including families of Indian descent. Through our experience of working with people of India’s Indian heritage, we have learned that India is a very colorful country, and like us, they have a unique integration of many ethnic groups displaying a variety of distinct cultures and religions.

We have learned that the people of India speak many different languages, dress differently, follow different religions, and eat different foods, but are basically of the same spirit. So when there is a celebration, they don’t celebrate alone. The entire neighborhood or community is involved in bringing merriment to the occasion. Likewise, in times of sorrow, neighbors and friends play an important part in sharing a family’s grief.

In working with the many wonderful people of Indian descent, we have learned that family plays a very important role in the Indian culture. From an early age, children are continually reminded of their place in society and taught to respect and honor their elders. It is a system in which extended family members, including parents, children, spouses and their offspring often live together, with the eldest male member of a household being the head of the family and making all of the important family decisions.

Like many countries around the world, India has certain traditions that have become a part of its folklore. For instance, it is said the simple act of utensils falling on the floor may foretell the coming of guests. And you know what that means. Company! And, oh yes, it is also said that a sparrow building a nest in, or near, a new home is an omen for good fortune. We will have to look in to this one.

Another interesting thing we learned about is the Indian belief in the Doctrine of Karma. This Doctrine preaches that every person should behave justly towards others because every act or deed will one day come back in full circle. Karma, what goes around comes around.

It is fun to learn about other cultures and traditions. We were told by one family of Indian descent that they compare their culture to a garden of flowers with many of shades and colors that lends harmony and beauty to their garden.  They said they read it somewhere and just loved how it expressed their feelings. Very Nice.

We, at American Housing, appreciate the many diverse cultures and respect all of the many different customs and traditions. As builders and remodelers, we realize that we may have to modify our designs in creating the perfect home and work closely with our customers to achieve this goal. Whether we are building you a new home, adding on a room addition, or remodeling your existing home, we will listen to your concerns and requests regarding the design and building of your project.
