Garages & Home Additions

Garages and additions are handled as new construction. There are many phases of new construction that involve defining specific needs and expectations of how the new space will be utilized. 


Planning & Permits

The key element to any successful home addition project begins with a plan. Structural, mechanical, door and window schedules must be developed prior to submission for permits. It is only with a developed set of drawings that a proper estimate can be completed and true costs established. The costs associated with this phase is dependent on the size and scope of the project. These fees are not included in the construction costs.

The second phase begins with preparing the work site for the structural addition. Depending upon the plans and specifications, this may include the digging of a foundational pad, basement footer,or crawl space footer. In step 2 of a ground addition site prep, concrete block is typically placed upon the footer structure to build a foundation for the white box.
