Any project that increases the enclosed square footage of a home for use on a year-round basis. This category also includes adding a second storey to a bungalow or raising a roof to add square footage to an existing second storey.
ADDITIONS | CATEGORY A
The customers purchased this house as their starter home. They thought that they would only be there a few years and then move on to something bigger. Fourteen years later they are still there and realize they love the house, neighbours and neighbourhood and didn’t want to move. Now with two children, the issue was they needed more space in the kitchen and living area. By adding onto the front of the house we could give then a larger dining/living area and revamp the kitchen to work better in the existing footprint. We were able to make their wish happen.
ADDITIONS | CATEGORY B
This gorgeous two-story, located on a pie-shaped lot in Starbuck, Manitoba, is home to a growing family. They needed more space and decided to extend their second story over the garage to add three additional bedrooms and some flex space. A catwalk joins this second-floor addition to the existing space, which now includes a fourth bedroom, bathroom, and a gorgeous master suite with a large walk-in closet and ensuite. New cement board siding was installed onto the entire home for a low-maintenance exterior.
ADDITIONS | CATEGORY C
This 1953 bungalow, nestled in the Riverview neighbourhood in Winnipeg, is in the perfect location but was too small. A home addition was added which perfectly compliments the home’s architectural style and which nearly doubled the livable space. The addition houses a second bedroom and separate den, mudroom, as well as the kitchen with full custom cabinets, stone counter tops, island with breakfast bar, and separate dining area. The home addition was designed inside and out to match perfectly with the existing structure; it’s impossible to tell where the old home stops and the new space begins!
