Room Addition St Cloud MNHow to Develop Effective Home Addition Plans to Fulfill Your Construction Goals

1. Establish a Singular Overall Goal

First things first—before we can start planning an addition to your home, it’s important to determine what you’re hoping to achieve with the new space.  We recommend starting out by establishing a singular overall goal for your addition.

Are you hoping to have more living space for you and your teenagers to enjoy, or are you looking to add on a couple extra rooms to accommodate your growing family?  Whether you want to improve your daily quality of life or simply wish to increase the value of your home, it’s essential to clearly define your goals and expectations before the project begins.

2. Articulate Your Needs and Wants

Next, you need to begin thinking about the specific elements of a home addition that you both need and want.  Perhaps an extra bedroom with a closet and bathroom is a necessity, but turning that closet into a walk-in and expanding the bathroom so that it has room for a garden tub are both wants.

We will always work to strike a balance with your home addition project so that you can include as many of your needs and wants as possible, but it’s definitely best to identify them separately before starting work.  Doing so allows us to help you stick to your construction budget throughout the duration of the project.

3. Plan Each Phase of Your Project

Once you have a better idea in mind of what you want and need to accomplish during this project, it’s time to start planning out the specific phases of construction.

We’ll start out by developing blueprints and construction plans for each part of your new home addition.  Then, we can move on to selecting materials and choosing the actual elements that will make their way into your new space.  Once we’ve mapped out what will take place during your home addition construction, we can begin working on building the new area of your dreams.

4. Talk About Your Project with Your St. Cloud Contractor

Throughout the entirety of the project, we recommend staying in close communication with your St. Cloud home addition contractor.  Craig Schoenberg takes great pride in his work and puts his customers’ satisfaction above all else.  If you have a question about your project, want to add something to your addition plan, or simply want to check in on the construction progress, Craig is always available to help.
