The Great Debate: Home Addition Or Move
People all over face the debate of whether to do a home addition or move to a new home. Many are finding that the homes they’re looking at still need updating to meet their needs. “Adding onto a current home enables homeowners to have something that meets their tastes and styles, and functions how they need it to on a daily basis,” says Normandy Designer Tony Tondelli, “Take my own family for example; my kids didn’t want to move to another school district and we couldn’t find any homes on the current market in our district that fit all our needs and wants. It led to us deciding to add on to achieve our ideal home.”
There’s a few different ways a homeowner could add onto their home, and some homes fit certain additions better than others based on style, zoning restrictions, etc. The three most common ways are to add either up with an extra level, extending over the garage, or expand out into the yard.
