Home Additions

One thing is certain; life is always changing and our homes should change with it. A home addition is a great way to embrace some of those changes. Whether you’re running out of bedrooms, need more room for movie-night or you’re tired of sharing the bathroom with the kids, an addition can enhance your family’s quality of life and comfort while increasing your home’s value.  Being the leader in the industry, Design First Builders is known for our exceptional designs and production of your family’s needs.

Bump Outs

Bump out additions should be considered when a small amount of additional square footage is needed to enhance an interior space.  A kitchen bump out, for example, is a good way to increase the size of your kitchen and allow space for an island that might not have been possible otherwise.

Ground Level Additions

Depending on zoning regulations and lot line setbacks; ground level additions can typically be built on any side of your home. This is often a solution for homeowners who need additional living space for their growing family or more entertainment space for their guests. Our team of architectural designers have an array of resources to determine what can and should be designed for your new space.

Second Story Additions

Second Story Additions are a great way to increase your home’s square footage as well as increase curb appeal and property value. More often than not it’s also a cost effective and more viable way to get a bigger home without spending the time, effort and money moving. Design First Builders has completed hundreds of second story additions and managed to keep happy families in the homes and neighborhoods they love.

First or Second Floor Reconfigurations

Chicagoland communities have ‘old bones’, but they are strong and worth investing in.  Many homeowners love the size of their home but not the flow or configuration.  Styles and standards have changed since many of the homes we’ve renovated have been built.  Reconfiguring an entire floor is a real investment but has the capability of truly transforming the way you live in your home. Design First has the talent and vision to space plan your entire home from the ground up and find those missing spaces you’ve always wanted in your home.
