Home Additions

Home Additions In Chicago

As life quickly evolves in the lively city of Chicago, it is important that your home is evolving with you. There can be a variety of reasons for these changes, such as a growing family or simply outgrowing your current space. However, we also understand that the need to create more space is not always the most feasible in a big city. You need someone who is knowledgeable in taking advantage of every square inch available so you’re left with an addition that is functional, beautiful, and marketable to other home buyers.

Home additions in Chicago can be complicated and expensive. It is not an easy task to properly mesh an older structure with a new addition. Homebuilders in the Chicago area must have significant experience, vision, and expertise to build an addition to someone’s home. They cannot just be a “jack of all trades.”

A house addition is not a minor alteration to your home’s design that you can fix if it is done incorrectly, it’s a permanent solution to the expanding needs of your family. This is why it is imperative that you look for a licensed service provider with an experienced team and technical experts.

When it comes to growing your living space, we believe that creating a space that is functional and beautiful is equally as important as being technically sound from a construction standpoint. With this in mind, we manage Chicago home addition projects with a finite and sophisticated process and work with you in building beautiful rooms that also add to the function of your living space and to the value of your home. To simplify the process, we guide our clients through the following simple phases:

  • Architectural Drawings: We sit with you and take note of your preferences, budget, and timeline so our architectural design experts can then create a plan that delivers the greatest value based on what you want. With certified professionals working on your design, you can rest assured we will not compromise on regulatory compliance and will create a functionally safe space that is beautiful. With our architect and structural engineer partnerships, we are able to match prospective clients with the right fit for their needs.
  • Construction: Once architectural plans are finalized and approved, our construction team will take over and review the drawings with a fine-tooth comb to provide an accurate and itemized labor and rough material estimate. We maintain open communication with our architectural team to ensure no item was overlooked and serve as a second set of eyes to ensure all local regulations are followed per code.
  • Design: Our in-house design team will work with you to create mood boards, renderings, and material selections that match your vision and ideal budget. With a huge network of suppliers, we are able to present a variety of material offerings and styles.
  • Finishing: Once construction has wrapped, the punch list is completed, and the final certificate of occupancy is issued we will welcome you home!

Our designated project coordinators at Arete’ will ensure that all appropriate Chicago building permits are filed so you do not have to worry about compliance and zoning codes. We will bring your vision to life by creating a functional space that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. From the initial concept phases all the way through construction and even to the finishing touches, we will be there every step of the way.
