Carport conversions are a great way to recapture some of the existing footprint and better utilize the space for you and your family. Throughout this conversion we added a structural header across the front of the carport, re-framed the ceiling, enclosed an existing window leading to the breakfast room, added electrical for interior and exterior lights and replaced the non-fire rated breakfast room door. Old Brick can always be a challenge to match, although the finished product here couldn’t have been a closer match- 40 years later. We upgraded the new garage door and added an l.e.d. display garage control with an extra quiet opener. This conversion looks true to the home and is now a functional, finished space.
This home owner had a brand new home and wanted to build a special room for her pets ( 12 Birds, 6 Dogs and a few cats ). She wanted the addition to match the home and she also wanted to be able to close off the room from the rest of the home or have the entire space open.
These home owners loved the location of there home, it was close to work, close to schools, it just needed to be a little bigger especially with 4 growing children. Located in Memorial where home values start at $ 225.00 per square foot, adding 850 square feet at about $ 175.00 per square foot just seemed to be a good investment. This home was built in the 1960’s and was located on a corner lot so matching the homes original Architecture was a huge factor. We added 2 bedrooms, a master bath, a private office off of the master bedroom and a little remodeling to the adjoining structure to create a seamless transition to the new addition.
For this project, the home owners wanted to add an Art Studio for their daughter along with a guest bedroom and additional full bath. Most importantly, they wanted the addition to blend with the surroundings and not look like an add-on. In case you can’t tell where the addition is, we added 16 feet to the right hand side of the home.
These home owners needed a play room for the kids and also a home office. They also wanted a much more custom and workable kitchen than the one the home was built with. Being that the home was located on a corner lot, it was very important that the new addition looked like it was designed and built with the original home.
