Whether your family is growing or you just need more space, a home addition or accessory dwelling unit (ADU) can be an excellent investment. Additions not only increase the value of your home, which can be advantageous if you ever choose to sell in the future, but can also make your everyday life more comfortable and functional. The professionals at Monumental Contractors will plan, design, and build an addition that seamlessly blends with the rest of your home and provides you with additional space to improve your quality of life.
The Home Additions & ADUs Process
Consult & Contract
Monumental will send one of their design and construction professionals to walk through the project with you and grasp your vision for the space and design. Once the design is agreed on, Monumental will then send you an estimate to sign.
Design & Selections
Once the the design agreement is ratified by both Monumental and yourself, the fun begins!
Monumental will gather all of your selections for the project including- paint colors, vanities, flooring, lights, and pull any necessary permits. This allows the project to run smoothly and more efficiently.
Prep & Pre-Construction Meeting
Monumental will schedule a pre-construction meeting with your assigned project manager, supervisor, and in-house team as an introduction. During this time we will discuss project logistics & timeline, answer questions and confirm scope & selections with the client.
Construction & Quality Check
During the construction phase- we will cover all steps from demo through rebuilding. Once we have completed the project we will have our quality assurance team do a quality inspection walk-through. This is one of the Monumental standards that set us apart. We will make sure your project has top quality and workmanship before turning it over.
This is the last step before you can enjoy your renewed space! Monumental will do a final walk-through with you, make sure that every question is answered and any final touch ups are taken care of. If necessary, we will make sure final inspections are passed and get images of your space. Now you are able to enjoy your dream home!
Add Some Space To Your Home
There is more than one way to increase the square footage of your home. When you contact our team about additions, we will schedule a consultation and discuss the best option for your space.
The most common way to add space is to build out, which means adding new rooms. New rooms are generally built on ground level and can be constructed in a way that makes the room look like it has always been there. Use your new room as an additional bedroom, family room, home office, sunroom, media room, children’s playroom or even a luxurious master suite. You can also add outdoor living spaces, such as a front or back porch, deck, screened porches, etc.
Another way to add to your home is by building up. This generally means adding a story to your home. Building up is a bit more labor-intensive than building out as the existing structure of the building must be able to support the additional weight. Our team will look at the condition of your home’s foundation, its strength and load-bearing qualities and similar features when determining if building up is a good option for you.
Accessory Dwelling Units
Another way to add space is to build an Accessory Dwelling Unit- an ADU is an independent residential unit located in the same lot as a stand-alone home. Accessory Dwelling Units can be a great way to receive some additional income. The area, in most cases, is used as an additional residential space that can be rented out!
