Types Of Home Additions We Can Build

Bump-out addition: This is a small-scale addition that extends an existing room by a few feet, typically to create more space or add a specific feature like a window seat or storage area.

Room addition: This involves adding a new room or rooms to the existing structure, such as a bedroom, bathroom, or family room. Room additions can be built on any level of the home, including the basement or attic.

Sunroom or four-season room: These are glass-enclosed spaces designed to provide natural light and additional living space while allowing homeowners to enjoy the outdoors year-round.

Second-story addition: This type of addition involves adding an entire new level to a one-story home or extending the living space of a two-story home. This can significantly increase the square footage of the home and may include new bedrooms, bathrooms, or living areas.

Garage conversion: This involves converting an existing garage into living space, such as a bedroom, office, or family room. This type of addition is popular for adding square footage without altering the home's exterior appearance.

In-law suite or accessory dwelling unit (ADU): This is a separate living space within the main home or a detached structure on the property, designed to accommodate extended family members or renters. In-law suites typically include a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living area.

Basement conversion: Transforming an unfinished or underutilized basement into a functional living space, such as a home theater, playroom, or additional bedroom and bathroom.

Dormer addition: This involves adding a dormer window to an existing sloped roof, creating additional living space and headroom in an attic or upper-level room.

Yes, you will need a building permit for a home addition in New Jersey. Permits ensure that construction projects adhere to local building codes, zoning regulations, and safety standards.

DM Bekus Construction can walk you through the process and submit all of the required paperwork for your permits.

Zoning regulations govern various aspects of construction, including setbacks, building heights, and land use.  These can vary from property to property and from town to town.  At DM Bekus Construction we will be able to discuss the specific zoning issues that might affect your home addition project.

The timeline for a home addition depends on factors such as the size and complexity of the project, weather conditions, and our current availability. We can discuss a realistic timeline with you for your particular addition project.  A home addition is generally a several week, if not a few months, long project.

If your home is in a historic district or is a designated historic property, there may be additional regulations and guidelines to follow when planning a home addition. 

Financing options for home additions may include personal savings, home equity loans, home equity lines of credit (HELOC), cash-out refinancing, or personal loans. Consult with your financial advisor, bank, or mortgage specialist to determine the best option for your situation.

A home addition will increase the value of your property, which may require updating your homeowner's insurance coverage. You will need to contact your insurance agent to discuss any changes needed to ensure you and your new home addition and it's contents are adequately covered.

Depending on the scope and complexity of your home addition project, it may be possible to continue living in your home during construction. However, you should be prepared for disruptions such as noise, dust, and limited access to certain areas of your home. We can discuss the construction schedule and potential disruptions with you before work begins.

Depending on the complexity of your home addition, you may need to consult with an architect or designer to create detailed plans and ensure your project meets local building codes and regulations. A professional designer can also help you maximize space, create a cohesive design, and ensure the addition complements your existing home.

In New jersey a homeowner can draw their own plans as long as the home is a single family owner occupied.

Incorporating energy-efficient features in your home addition can reduce energy consumption and save on utility costs. Consider options such as energy-efficient windows and doors, insulation, heating and cooling systems, appliances, lighting, and solar panels.  We can discuss green, energy-efficient options with you.

These prices are only ball park figures to give you a rough idea as to what you should expect for the cost of design/build home addition project completed by a team of craftsman.  Your particular addition project may vary depending on the site, any zoning issues, the size and scope of the addition, the specific materials you've chosen, and the overall scope of work.  If you need a firm price please request a consultation so we can view your potential project, listen to your ideas, and determine the actual scope of work required to complete your home addition project.  After our on-site consultation we'll be able to provide you with a firm estimate to build your new home addition the right way.

I met Dave Bekus through our local bank VP.

I met Dave Bekus through our local bank VP. I had plans for my "Dream House" designed by Taliesin of Scottsdale, Arizona. Dave and I worked together hand and glove to bring this project to fruition. I could not have asked for a better builder who was most knowledgeable and honest. Where I not 71 years old I would love to work on another project with Dave--and anyway how many people actually get to build their dream house and enjoy it every day?

Rick Harris

We first met Dave over 16 years ago

We first met Dave over 16 years ago when a co-worker recommended him when we were looking for a contractor to put new siding on our house. Since then, we always call Dave when we need a contractor (he has since put on our new roof and installed new doors and a deck). Dave always returns calls and keeps us informed regarding all aspects of our projects. His crews show up on time, are professional, pay attention to details, and take pride in their work. Everyone treats our home with respect and the property is always clean when the project is completed. We would recommend Dave to anyone who is looking for a contractor for their home improvement project.
