About Me

Like Playing Blocks — for Grownups Did you enjoy playing blocks as a child? Maybe you liked stacking them up and then letting them tumble down. Or maybe you enjoyed creating the most elaborate structures you could dream of. People with this affinity for playing blocks often find that they like working as contractors and construction workers. After all, these jobs are sort of like playing blocks for grownups! You get to build things, albeit these things are much more complex than block towers. Sometimes, you also get to knock things down. If you like this analogy as much as we do, then we invite you to read more about construction and contractors on this website.



Do you feel like you need more space in your home? Maybe you can't put your finger on exactly how or why you need that space, but you just feel cramped. You need more space to spread out, or more space to spread out your things. A home addition can satisfy your needs. But rather than just tacking a random extra room onto your home, you should take the time to make plans for that room. Then, you can have the addition specifically designed to meet your needs. Here are some creative ideas to inspire you as you have a home addition built.

An Indoor-Outdoor Room

One idea would be to make your home addition an indoor-outdoor room with a glass ceiling or large skylights. The walls could feature large windows with screens so you can open the windows and let lots of air inside during the warmer months. Your indoor-outdoor room could be equipped with a gas grill so you can cook out there. Or, you could put a pool table or foosball table out there for entertainment. Once your indoor-outdoor room is built, you'll probably spend more time out there and less time in your living room, which will help your home feel less crowded and cramped in general.

A Pet Room

If you have a big dog or a couple of cats, there may be times when you want to lock them away somewhere so you can prepare food, care for a baby, or handle other obligations. Locking them in a crate may be a bit restrictive. But what if they had their own room? You can have a builder add an entire room with pet-friendly, easily cleanable carpeting, a platform bed, and plenty of storage cabinets for your pets' things. You won't feel bad if you have to leave your pets alone in their own, luxurious room for a few hours.

A Guest Bedroom

If you often have guests stay with you, then you might be tired of having them on the couch. Adding a guest bedroom to your home ensures they have somewhere more distinct and private to stay when they visit. You may even have more friends and family members come to stay once you have this room, which can be nice. Consider having an en-suite bathroom included if there's room in the budget for it.

Having an addition built onto your home is a great way to give yourself more space. Just make sure you plan how you're going to use it in advance. For more information, contact a local company, like Dog Star Construction.
