Adding On To House Home Design Ideas

Adding on to an existing house is done when we need to add rooms. It is a major undertaking that requires careful planning because adding on may jar the whole look. We need to make it look unified; blending seamlessly that the addition could not even be noticed. Adding on takes many forms; it can be a second story, an extension in front or back of the house or it can even be a separate building. The things to be considered when an adding on is to be done would be the design and the lot area. Here are some marvelous adding on to house ideas that may inspire you.

1. Additional Room

This house did an adding on by connecting it to the yard at the back. The additional room was built with more doors leading to the yard and blended right in with the existing house.

2. Wooden Structure

The best adding on would be to the back of the house. In this case a different design was done. The homeowners opted out to add a wooden structure instead of having it in bricks like the old house. It cut costs and the addition could hardly be noticed.

3.    Small Structures
