Remodeling & Additions

Your life changes as your family changes, don’t let your home or office limit what you do. When refinishing is not going to create more space or help with the flow of your house, you may need to do some remodeling. Think of “trading spaces” as a cost effective way of rearranging the rooms in your house with what you already have.

Adding on to your home is the best way to make more space, whether it’s a straightforward add-on at the rear, a New Orleans style camel-back, or restructuring, this could get the most of the property and meet your long term goals.

Remodels usually are more friendly and faster where additions may be for those with a larger appetite. You give us your ideas, needs, and wants, then we turn that into either an estimate or a proposal for a design to get to the estimate step.

Remodeling can be done in different levels of work and design from easy refinishing to restructuring, and then adding storage. You may first want to rearrange spaces, or move walls. Then you can pick out all of your finishes, from basic to complex patterns. To complete a good space, you can add furniture, custom built-ins or our go to semi-custom look. We take everyday available materials and resources and marry them to the overall theme and spaces of what you either already have or are re-created.

Think of also rearranging a kitchen, maybe your master bath needs a shower AND a tub, adding shelving and storage organizing, or even opening up a room to a more modern layout. These are all the ways we can help you live and use you home and building in a way that gives back.

Additions not only add space, they add valuable square footage that is always worth doing and in the long run. It may be easier to first add space to the home before remodeling others. How can you renovate a bath if you only have one? Do you need to make storage space before refinishing or remodeling, or is a garage addition, master suite, or bonus room just what your property needs? There are more requirements and planning involved when it comes to additions. Design & engineered plans are required, preferred to price, and permits are needed.

LDB handles all of these from idea, construction, to client ready.
