Structural Changes

Moving walls & structural elements.

Budget Options...

They do exist.

Structural changes are another matter. But even here you can trim some costs.

Talk to a professional remodeler about stealing space from other rooms or bumping out walls a few feet. There are ways to gain space without the headache of new foundations and roofs. If you need another bedroom, look to the attic and basement. You may be able to find the extra space within the current structure of your home.

Then again, you may want to add a new wing. Extra square footage will be an added bonus on the resale market. Just be sure to check codes and stay within the rules of zoning laws.

Structural Changes Require Professional Help...

Let's look at how to find a qualified remodeler to assist you.
