Building a new home provides an amazing opportunity to including everything you could need or want.
Many types of additions are easier and more affordable to add while the home is being built, rather than waiting until it is complete and performing a renovation. By adding features to the home during the construction process, you can save money and frustration in the long term. If you have made the commitment to build your new home, think about whether you would want one of these features at some point, and consider adding them now.

This classic Craftsman house plan is complete in Cedar shake siding and stone accents. The garage has been relocated from a front, side entry to a rear, side entry. The front porch is framed in columns and an arched entryway is a charming addition.
This design lives much larger than its 2649 sq ft by making efficient use of space with garage storage, a walk-in pantry, a spacious utility room and mudroom. Each bedroom has spacious closets and the master bedroom includes a sitting area and access to the back porch. This house plan has an enlarged screen porch with vaulted ceiling just off the dining room which features an inviting fireplace for year-round enjoyment. You also have a nice covered porch area off the back of the house.
