As with any construction project, an addition to your home requires careful planning.
Before you decide to go ahead with the project, it is important to clearly identify the features you want.
Just as important is a thorough inspection of the current structure so that any existing problems can be corrected at the same time.
The key challenge is to make sure that your addition meets your living requirements and looks like an integral part of the existing home.
You will likely need help from a professional designer who can take your ideas and prepare blueprints that will meet structural and permitting requirements.
At Grand Bend Home Builders, we have the experience to assemble the resources needed and perform the work to professional standards.
Construction techniques for new homes have changed rapidly. Most of these improved techniques also apply to renovations.

Before renovating, it's important to assess the condition of your home to determine if there are any significant underlying problems that must be addressed before or during your planned renovation project.
Consideration should be given to:
- Various elements of the home to be upgraded
- A look at lifestyle needs and comforts
- Replacement of inefficient or worn building components

Your choices of design, materials and construction method play a major role in the look and feel of the finished home. There are many ways to combine different construction types with design and material that creates the perfect home for you. Some may choose spacious open plan living, abundance of natural light and the ambiance of natural timbers while others prefer more traditional and easier to build structures.
Different construction methods will be required depending on the type of structure selected for the home. Conventional framing is the most common option. More complex homes may involve the use of post and beam, timber-frame or log structural components. In some cases, these components may be combined with a conventional frame to get a more cost-effective result.
Building different types of homes takes special skill sets. Grand Bend Home Builders uses the best construction practices no matter what design and structural materials are selected. We recommend the use of higher quality materials as they give a better finished result, reduce labor costs during the building process and minimize waste.
