Houston homes often contain home offices or bedroom suites for grandparents, but the houses may not originally have been built to suit such purposes.
Perhaps you are ready to quit the commute and start of home-based business. Or, your family circumstances are changing and a grandparent is moving in. Perhaps the stork is preparing to make a special delivery. But, the house just isn’t ideally configured for the changes.
Additionally (no pun intended), we build extensions to create sunrooms, outdoor kitchens, home gyms, spa rooms, great rooms, laundry/mudrooms, project rooms and workshops.
In other instances, the homeowners are looking to build a separate structure for a guest house, home office or pool house. While the She Shed trend was more about setting up a little escape, these additions, extensions and structures are built by Northstar to be used for everyday living and day-to-day business.
As summer approaches, we are mindful of how often people wished they had a set up off the back of the house a pool bath or in a separate pool house that people can quickly dart into, even with a wet suit, to wash up and dry off. We can use materials in flooring and otherwise than can handle wet feet and wet towels. Storage and changing areas can easily be configured and adjoin a laundry room.
If entertaining is essential to your lifestyle, we can discuss what kind of parties you hold and what kind of food you serve. We get that a crawfish boil requires different accommodations than a formal business dinner.
Your home addition could also be two stories, with an entertaining, utility or office space on the ground level and a bedroom suite upstairs.
Northstar melds the design of an addition to the rest of the house in a seamless fashion. The end result is an extension or patio cover that looks like it was always there.
