Add a Second Story to Your Home
Adding a second story to a house is one of the most popular home addition projects. Such an addition typically requires extensive inspection and renovation to ensure your home remains structurally sound.
Big Dog Construction’s team excels at seamlessly integrating second floors into single-story homes. We have a full suite of qualified engineers, architects, designers, and contractors to tackle such projects. We coordinate among our departments to ensure your second story is sturdy and spacious and echoes your requirements down to a tee. Whether you want to include a separate suite on top of your existing house or move all your first-floor bedrooms upstairs, we can perform the task to your liking.
Make your second story a permanent extension of your home’s structure and value by enlisting our staff.
Increase Your Space with Bump-Outs
Bump-outs are one of the most cost-efficient home additions. Since they don’t usually involve plumbing or foundation alterations, they can be affordably handled while increasing a home’s investment value.
Big Dog Construction provides bump-outs of all kinds. We offer bump-outs in the kitchen to add a café table or small dining area. Our team also creates bump-outs in living and bedroom areas with bay windows to create cozy seating spaces that bring in natural light. Additionally, we often create bump-outs in the rear rooms of the house to offer extended living space that allows the owner to enjoy their backyard while remaining indoors.
We can offer you a multitude of bump-out suggestions and follow through with our recommendations with superior engineering and quality installations.

BATHROOM ADDITIONS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Aside from your kitchen, there is no room in your home more valuable than the bathroom. So, whether you want to increase your home’s re-sale value or just add a new room to your existing home, a bathroom addition is an effective and efficient way of achieving this end. However, that being said, three important points to consider include:
FULL BATHS OVER HALF BATHS
The fact of the matter is that if you are going to go to the bother of having a new bath installed in your home, then you need to make sure that it is a full rather than half option. Recent research indicates that adding a half bath to your home will increase its value by 10%. However, the addition of a full bath will offer a value increase of 20% for your home.
KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
The simple fact of the matter is before you decide on adding a new bathroom to your home, you need to take a look at where you live. The reality is that if you live in one of the nicest neighborhoods in town, then adding a bathroom worth $20,000 may actually result in diminishing returns rather than any real benefit for your home.
WEIGH THE INTANGIBLES
One of the final points to consider when you are adding a bathroom to your home is that money isn’t everything. The simple fact is that if unhappy family members are standing in line to share a bathroom, you may not care whether you fully recoup the cost of the new addition in any future re-sale. So, while it is important to ensure that you are aware of the costs of new additions and renovations, the reality is that you can’t always put a price-tag on your family’s harmony.
