Most often additions are built on the backside of the existing house allowing for various combinations of resident arrangements. These are great for growing families wanting some extra space, families looking to make some extra money through adding a portion to the house suitable for a rental, young professionals needing space to run a small business, or multi-generations who want to live in close quarters. At Realty Renovation, we can build modest, comfortable, and affordable addition for your home in the Okanagan. Talk to us today about how to make the most of your space.
It All Starts With The Foundation
A proper foundation does more than just hold a house above ground. It also keeps out moisture, insulates against the cold, and resists movement of the earth around it. Oh, and one more thing: It should last forever. Building a good foundation requires a lot more than digging a hole and pouring some concrete into forms. It must be tailored to its site like a custom suit, taking into account soil conditions, water tables, even the quality of the backfill. And as with a custom suit, every detail must be perfect: the base properly compacted, the formwork set up right, the concrete free of voids.

Things to Consider
1. Determine what you want to achieve with your renovation.
What is the purpose of your renovation? Do you need more space? Does a certain area of your home not seem to function right? Answering some of these questions will allow you to create a better vision for what you’d like to accomplish.
2. Visualise all your design elements together ahead of time.
It’s all in the details. Picking your design elements before the renovation begins is the best way to make sure you’ll be 100% satisfied when the renovation is completed.
3. Be inspired by timeless trends.
Trends may come and go but there are certain elements of design that will never go out of style. With our guidance, we’ll help you create a modern look that will stand the test of time.
4. Design your space around your needs and lifestyle.
There are many ideas to choose from when renovating your home. We always recommend that families sit down together and decide which of them will best improve their quality of living.
5. Be prepared for the renovation period.
Once the renovation begins, that portion of your home will be unusable until completed. It’s best to have a plan in place so you can continue to live your life with as little inconvenience as possible during the construction period.
