This time of year many home owners host family and friends during the holiday season. Having house guests can be fun and exciting this time of year as gifts are exchanged, festive meals are prepared and fun parties are enjoyed. Making sure your home is comfortable and inviting to each guest is important and essential to being a gracious host. One issue that many home owners run into when hosting family and friends over the holiday season is simply not having enough room for everyone to stay. Having only so many rooms to sleep in can be frustrating when you are hosting a larger family or group of friends.

Expanding a Room & Addiing Square Footage

One way to make your home a better place to host family and friends is to build an addition onto your home. Not only will you have more space for people to stay, but you will also be making more room to store your belongings. Items like bicycles, work out equipment, old photos and other belongings can easily be stored away in your newly constructed home addition. Adding onto your home doesn’t always have to include putting on an additional room, but it can also include expanding your kitchen, creating more space in a bathroom or adding more square footage to your living room space. While large additions make a significant difference, small additions that are only three or four feet of a difference can also make quite an impact in a smaller area.

Building an Extra Room on your House

Another benefit of building an addition onto your home is the option of making a little extra money by renting out the space. If you build on an additional bedroom and bathroom, you could house a tenant and make extra money each month. It is a great way to keep up with the building costs and have a little extra cash in your pocket each month. Another popular option is having a family member live with you long term. Many adult children are moving back home to stay with their parents until they can get a place of their own or until they finish school. Building on extra space provides privacy and comfort for both you and your permanent house guest.
