Home Addition San Antonio
Adding a home addition or granny flat is becoming more popular in San Antonio, Texas. Families have been forced to consider this option instead of sending an older relative to a retirement home or due to children moving back in with parents. This is now referred to Multi-generational living. A home addition is added on to the exterior footprint of the existing home and can also be done by adding a second story addition if space on the lot is an issue. An architect and structural engineer is required for two story additions in San Antonio, Texas. The new room addition can have all the amenities as a small home or apartment (small kitchen, laundry rooms, sitting rooms, garages, etc).
Every home addition has to be carefully analyzed to ensure that it blends with the existing home. Building setbacks and easements must be looked at prior to the design to make sure all building code laws are obeyed.
Increasing livable square footage can also increase the value of the home. Careful planning and use of building material should be taken into consideration. We build a lot of room additions in the Alamo Heights and Terrell Hills ares. The home tend to be small and when families purchase their new new home, they have an immediate need to add more living space. –Danny Garcia, owner of Rhino Design Build, LLC in San Antonio, Texas.
