Expand the Possibilities with Skelly Build:
Building an Addition to Customize Your Home


Do you love your location but just need a little more space to “move about the cabin?”

Building an addition onto your home can offer a wide range of benefits, both practical and financial. Below are some compelling reasons to consider adding an extension to your home:

1. Increased Living Space

  • Extra Rooms: An addition can provide extra bedrooms, bathrooms, mother-in-law suites, or living areas, which are particularly beneficial for growing families.
  • Increased Storage: An addition can provide custom storage areas tailored to your specific inventory and needs.

2. Enhanced Functionality

  • Add Modern Amenities to an Older Home: Make daily life more efficient by adding modern conveniences, like a larger kitchen, pantry, laundry room, or mudroom onto your home.
  • Improved Layout: Additions can help you redesign the layout to improve traffic flow and make better use of your existing spaces.

3. Increased Property Value

  • Higher Market Value: A well-designed addition can significantly increase your home’s resale value, often providing a good return on your investment.
  • Desirable Features: Adding features such as extra bathrooms, a sunroom, or a larger primary suite can make your home more appealing to potential buyers.

4. Cost-Effective Alternative to Moving

  • Avoid Moving Costs: Building an addition can be more cost-effective than moving to a larger home, especially when considering the expenses of real estate transactions, moving services, interest rates, and potentially higher property taxes.
  • Stay in a Preferred Location: If you love your current neighborhood, adding to your home allows you to stay in your preferred location while gaining the extra space you need: a win win!

5. Customization

  • Personalized Design: Constructing an addition enables you to tailor your home to your specific tastes and needs, ensuring it integrates seamlessly with your existing structure and suits your lifestyle.
  • Creative Freedom: Building from scratch allows you to choose the design, materials, and layout that best fit your vision and functional requirements. Who wouldn’t want that?

6. Accommodating Life Changes

  • Growing Family: Accommodate new family members, whether it’s children, elderly parents, or extended family.
  • Specialized Spaces: Skelly Build can help you construct dedicated spaces such as a home office, gym, or playroom that cater to your family’s specific needs.

7. Energy Efficiency

  • Modern Standards: New construction can be built to higher energy efficiency standards, reducing utility bills and improving overall home comfort.
  • Upgraded Systems: Take the opportunity to upgrade heating, cooling, and insulation systems in the new addition, which can improve efficiency in the entire home.

8. Improved Aesthetics

  • Enhanced Curb Appeal: A thoughtfully designed addition can enhance your home’s exterior appearance, boosting its curb appeal.
  • Updated Interiors: Modernize your home’s interior with new finishes, fixtures, and design elements that reflect current trends and personal preferences.

Building an addition to your home can be a smart investment that enhances your living experience, meets changing needs, and increases your property’s value. Skelly Build is here to help you plan carefully, considering both immediate requirements and future possibilities, to ensure an addition provides lasting benefits for your family, making it a more enjoyable place to live.
