Let’s face it; homes come in all styles, shapes, and sizes. For those of us unwilling to compromise on location, the alternative often means compromising on the design and space within our home.

Our Future Vision Remodeling design team will ensure that your home addition matches seamlessly with your existing structure. A house addition or room addition can be as simple as adding one new room to your home or as elaborate as adding a whole second level. Best of all, a home addition adds lasting value to your property.
Types of Home Additions
When it comes to remodeling your home, the options are endless.
Bump outs. One possibility for expansion is a scaled down version of a home addition known as a bump out. A bump out can be something as simple as adding space to an existing room such as square footage to your kitchen so you can add extra cabinets or a kitchen Island or turning a little used powder room into the extra full bathroom that you have always wanted.
Building Out. The most popular home additions involve increasing the square footage of your property. Why? According to the experts at Future Vision Remodeling, the majority of room additions involve first floor additions. Unlike bump outs, build outs involve adding rooms such as a much needed family room or extra bedroom.
Building Up. Adding space to your home does not necessarily have to involve building out. You can add space by adding a second or even a third story to your existing floorplan. A scaled down version may include installing dormers in a pitched roof or adding living space over an existing porch or garage.
Sunrooms are a popular addition to California homes and have made a big come back in recent years mostly due to design. Years ago, the sunroom was often thought of as a poor man’s addition, typically made of aluminum and glass that was too cold in winter and too hot in summer. The humble sunroom has certainly evolved and is now precision cut to ensure a water proof seal that won’t leak along while holding the heat in winter and cool in summer.
Conservatories are another popular addition to homes. Built mainly as room additions to nurture exotic plants and admire nature, conservatories are considered upscale sunrooms which are extremely popular in many parts of sunny California.
Garage conversions are a great way to convert existing space into a finished living space. Most garages come prewired with outlets already in place. Some garages even have drywall, making the space even less expensive to transform into a gym, craft room, or a game room.
