Four Fall Home Additions
Posted September 19, 2020 to Before You Buy: Tips, Advice, Checklists.
Fall is a great time to make additions to a home. The weather is great here in the Raleigh area and most people are starting to think of cozy times as we head into the holiday season.
Here are four great home additions that we recommend for the fall:
Porch: Nothing is more welcoming than a porch to hang out on. Being able to sit with a drink and say hello to everyone passing by is what life is all about. Whether you’re adding a porch to a home or sprucing up the one you have with new railings and extra features, a good porch is a great addition to a home.
Back deck: Fall in North Carolina is made to be celebrated from a deck. The cooler nights and crisp air beg for cozy blankets, a fire and good friends. A deck can give the space needed to do this. Thinking about how one wants to use it, and making sure to include ample space and custom features (such as benches and planters), will make it feel like an extra room in the home.
Screened-in porch: Some of us like a little more privacy and year-round use from our home additions. If this sounds like you, then a screened-in porch is what you need. It’ll help keep elements out while still providing that outdoor feel.
Arbors and pergolas: Every yard can use a little focal point and pizazz, and a well-placed arbor or pergola accomplishes that perfectly. In a wooded yard, an arbor can create a quiet, whimsical little spot while in a cleared yard, it can add definition and charm.
The outside of a home can be used as extra living space with the help of a quality addition. Not only will it add value to one’s life, but it will also add value to the home. Contact Sierra Structures to get started on an addition to your home this fall.
