Our homes are our sanctuaries, but do you ever wish that you had a little more space to move around, work, cook, or entertain? We may love our homes but desire a slightly larger version. That doesn’t mean, however, that the notion of moving houses sounds appealing– especially in today’s competitive housing market. If you feel like you’re one room addition away from having your dream home, the solution is simple.

Growing families want more space, especially in these changing times. “Some homeowners desperately need a home office – or two – now that more remote work is occurring,” says Jake Koepkey, room addition manager for Custom Concrete. “Additional square footage is a great way to elevate a dynamite house to a dream house.”

The concept of a room addition may look different than what was envisioned a decade ago. For instance, a room addition may include a barn or shed with concrete flooring that will be used as a home gym or yoga studio. It may be a specialized porch, a detached garage, or a pool house.

“Any project that increases square footage, your home’s value, and your joy is a great room addition project,” says Koepkey. It all comes down to adding value to your space and bettering your life.

Perhaps you’ve always wanted a walk-out basement for entertaining or additional garage space to store mowers, heavy equipment, or other gear. These amenities may not have been an option when you first purchased the home, but Custom Concrete can make these dreams a reality.
