5 Ideas for A Second Story Addition

Do you have a ranch style house that you want to turn into a two-story home? Are you outgrowing the space that you currently have? Don’t worry! A modular second story addition in Northern Virginia can help you get the space and home you desire!

If you’ve considered wanting a second story but aren’t quite sure what you would put up there – here are some ideas to get you started!

1. Additional Bedrooms

If your family has outgrown the number of bedrooms that your current home has to offer, you don’t have to pick up and move! You can keep your family in the house you know and love by adding a modular addition. A second story addition can be the perfect space you need to move kids’ bedrooms upstairs, while freeing up space downstairs in case you need a room for your in-laws to stay in!

2. Bathrooms

As families grow, so does the struggle involved with bathroom access. Minimize the time spent fighting over who gets to shower next by adding another bathroom (or two) to your second story addition! Extra bathrooms also simplify the process of hosting guests, as you can avoid lines at the door waiting for their turn.

3. Home Office

Even now, more people are working from home in the aftermath of quarantine. A second story addition would allow you space to have a dedicated home office, away from the hustle and bustle of life with your family! You could choose a room on the opposite side of the noisiest parts of the house to ensure a quiet environment for you to focus on your work!

4. Hobby Space

A second story addition also gives you room for hobbies! Do you crochet, collect model trains, want to save money with a home gym? Any of those or more make for the perfect use of a hobby room! A second story gives you space to dedicate to enjoying your hobby so that you can feel at ease while doing so.

5. Laundry Room

If your home doesn’t already have a dedicated space for laundry, now it can! Rather than hiding your washer and dryer out of the way in the garage or basement, you can create a space just to do your laundry that is easily accessible! A second story addition is a great chance for you to create the perfect space for your washer and dryer, and also to store everything you need to finish up those loads of laundry.
