At times the only way to go is up; this family had a smaller lot that they wanted a lot of house built on. This 29×25 two-story addition with a full basement added almost 1,500 additional square feet, not including the 725 square feet of unfinished basement, to the rear of this home. Adding a master suite, family room, and office was the priority of this Okemos family. We began with a poured-wall foundation and did everything from framing to the final paint. Along with new electrical and plumbing in the addition, the house also required a new HVAC system to work with the added square footage, and a new hot water heater to handle the soaker tub we installed in the new master suite. All rooms but the bathroom feature an engineered wood floor that we extended into the existing dining room. All of the doors were custom-stained to match the existing stained wood doors. Painted wood T-111 was installed on the exterior of the addition to match the existing siding as well as matching wood trim. The entire home and garage were re-roofed and two new decks were constructed. The master bathroom was a treat for our crew. With an intricate tile design and a large bathroom filled with it, they thought they would never see the end. With dark cabinets and a light colored Corian vanity top, this bathroom has a rich look to it. Due to battles with the Township, battles with weather, and homeowner delays, this project took approximately four months to complete.
