The word conservatory carries an air of sophistication. We often think of a conservatory as a type of music school. But a conservatory is also a kind of room in a home, one that originally developed in the 19th century as a way to bring in additional light to a part of the house and offer a space to more effectively grow plants indoors. The conservatory is still a popular option for a room addition that can take a standard home and give it the feeling a luxury mansion.

Room additions are one of the best ways to add value and function to your home without having to undertake major renovations inside the house. There are many options for room additions, and if you haven’t decided on a specific one yet, we’d like to show you some of the benefits of a sunroom.
A sunroom is usually added onto the side of a house as a supplement to one of the larger living areas, such as a living room or family room. They have glass on three sides (and often the roof) to allow in the most light, and are typically used to enhance enjoyment of the house rather than add on more facilities.
Remodeling the kitchen is a major change and it can be a great pain in the neck. Still, there are many reasons that homeowners decide to go through with a major kitchen remodel. The end result is well worth the trouble if you’re concerned about the look and feel of a room you use so often.

Remodeling an attic is one of the best ways to add space onto your home and to potentially increase its value. Your new attic room can be a space for you to escape to. It can be a guest bedroom, the kids’ playroom, a scenic drawing room, or an office. But no matter what you turn your attic into, there are a few things you should know before you start the remodel.
You’ve got a perfect picture in your head of the features you’d like to see come to life as you build your home. But what if the location you’ve chosen to build it on cannot accommodate all of your new home design hopes and dreams?

During the call or visit with a potential contractor, don’t be afraid to ask questions and get specific answers about the work to be done.
