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.

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.

It feels hard to look beyond the current sluggish economy for another Florida housing boom, but booms have followed every recession in th Tampa Bay area.So the time to invest in your home is when?

Neal urged real estate agents to look beyond economics, while citing statistics and demographics. “Homes are a consumer product. They are the place we live. They should be sold on the emotion of home ownership, not the economic value,” said Neal.

Judy Green said, “Neal has changed to the market and that’s something the Realtors need to do too.” She stated that she’s still cautiously optimistic and sees signs of hope in various areas. Green reminded the real estate agents, “We got through the challenges of the late 90s and that recession. After every recession there’s a housing boom. So, I’m very optimistic about the future.”
