Three Ways To Beef Up The Space In Your Home With Extra Rooms

Though you may have dreams of purchasing a mansion or even a McMansion in the suburbs. There are times where real estate in your area will lead you to get a home that is smaller than the one in your dreams. Though you may have fewer rooms than you desire, you can have everything that you need in a home with a little creativity. If you purchase a home for sale with a decent sized yard, you can insert some extra rooms within the space that you have. Here are a few ways to beef up the rooms that you have in your home with some building. 

Place a shed as a room

No matter the extra room that you need for additional activities, one of the best things that you can do is put down a shed. Most sheds will not require any extra permitting, as long as it meets the proper standards for your city ordinances. Sit down a pre-made shed and use this as your exercise room, your home office, or man or woman cave for a little privacy. With the help of a generator and a little plumbing work, you can turn this into a room that will function on its own. 

Screen off part of your front or back porch

If you have a porch, there is more that you can do than just sit out chairs. You can screen off some or all of your front or back porch in order to create an extra room. This room can be an additional family room, a dining area, or space for the adults to sit and fix outdoor food and drinks while watching the kids in the yard. Sealing off the area can be a one or two day project and provide a separate section for the desired activity. 

Turn the attic into an attractive space

If you have an attic, this does not have to be used to store boxes and old items. Skip keeping the old items and turn the attic into a room itself. Install windows inside of the attack and a skylight to turn it into a legal room. Next, be sure to extend the heating and cooling are extended into the attic. If you are able, you can build a set of steps that remains stationary, along with a separate closing latch door for privacy. Turning the attic into a room itself will provide an excellent private suite that increases the number of bedrooms in the home overall. 

About Me

A New Home by Christmas

When I was born, my parents lived in a tiny, brick home. The small house only had one bathroom. And the laundry room could be reached only by going outside and venturing to the side of the house. Thankfully, my family purchased a new home when I was in the seventh grade. The new place was approximately twice as large as the old home. We moved into this sprawling farmhouse a couple of days before Christmas. I will never forget how amazing the first few days of living in this new place felt. On this blog, I hope you will discover some tips to help you purchase your dream home by Christmas. Enjoy!
