ROOM ADDITIONS

Our Room Additions Will Make Your Home the Perfect Fit

What do you do when your house is too small, or lacks essential rooms such as a family room, an office, or a guest bedroom?  You could decide to sell and move to a larger residence, or you could consider adding a new room on to your existing home. Not only are room additions more cost-effective than relocating, they don’t require you to leave your home and the surrounding neighborhood, and they can add significant value and enjoyment to your current property.  At White River Construction we understand that room additions don’t simply add square footage – they reconfigure your home to fit your needs and your lifestyle. Our expert room addition contractors and designers will work with you to create a space that adds dimension to your house, but also transforms your home into a perfect fit for your taste, style, and budget.  Room additions should flow seamlessly with the original architecture of the home, and not look or feel like an old space and a new space have been sewn together. The lines of the room addition, both structurally and aesthetically, should be impossible to notice. Our room addition contractors at White River Construction are professionally trained to build additions that appear as if they have always been a part of the home, but now provide that extra space for functionality and comfort.

The design, plan, and construction of a room addition can be as complex as building a new home from the ground up. No matter the size or scale of your home addition, White River Construction will provide meticulous craftsmanship while delivering unmatched professional service and attention at every step. We will work efficiently to avoid any disruption or mess to your property, and will maintain a safe, clean, and well-protected job site.

REMODELING TIPS

This checklist is helpful for those preparing for the inevitable disruption remodel projects can bring.

  • Prior to enjoying the pleasures of your new kitchen, there is the process of the remodeling construction that can bring with it some challenges.
  • In a fond farewell to your old kitchen, spend some time in it, cooking. Make family favorites and throw them in the freezer. You’ll thank yourself later.
  • In the weeks before the work begins, keep a list of all of those restaurants you’ve been meaning to try. When the microwave gets old, your list will come in handy for a quick escape!
  • Pack up the kitchen well before the cabinets arrive. While it’s a great time to spring clean your shelves, don’t forget to label the storage boxes well. This will make the unpacking process a lot easier and a lot more fun!
  • Plan to create a temporary kitchen and to relocate a refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee maker for use during construction.
  • You may be able to temporarily move everything you need…except the kitchen sink. Consider where your water source will be in relation to your temporary kitchen.
  • Arrange an eating area.
  • Keep utility utensils nearby such as: can opener, bottle/wine opener, sharp knives and microwavable plates.
  • Keep daily use staples available: butter, ketchup, salt and pepper, spices.
  • Tell the kids you’re picnicking…use paper plates, napkins and disposable silverware.
  • Remember cleaning supplies and dishtowels.
  • Don’t forget about Fido & Kitty! If there isn’t an area in your home to keep them safely away from construction – especially during certain phases – it may be a perfect time to treat your pet to a vacation with family or a play date at a friend’s home.
  • Decide on where you’d like the installers to store their tools. Make sure it is in a locked area.
  • Dust…there’s just no way to avoid it. If there is a fish tank or electrical equipment in close proximity to the work, remember to keep them well covered.
  • Before the cabinets arrive, prepare a safe enclosed area for the cabinets and appliances to be delivered to. Usually a garage is a good location.
