Add the Space You've Always Wanted.


When the current house no longer fits their needs, homeowners are faced with the dilemma either to move and buy their dream home or to renovate the current house to fit that dream.

​One of the most common reasons the house no longer suits the needs of the homeowner is that the family has outgrown the space, leaving a feeling of being uncomfortably cramped.

​In these circumstances, single rooms often serve multiple purposes - like a spare bedroom doubles as the home office, or the family room is also used as the home gym. 

​The best solution to stay in their home but to get the additional space they require is to build an addition onto the home.

There are multiple options when adding an addition onto your home, like ground level additions, second story additions and sunrooms, among others.

​Choosing to renovate your home is a huge step, and one that comes with a lot of things to consider.

The first thing you need to decide is if you are planning on “building out” by increasing the footprint of your home on the ground floor or “building up” by adding more stories to your existing home. Of course, the right answer depends on your needs, preferences, and limitations. 

The specially trained sales & design staff at Lumen Homes will work with you to determine what option works best for your situation.

build out

This is the most common type of addition. This involves adding to the footprint of the house with an addition on the ground level of the existing home, extending the perimeter outwards.

​ These types of additions are great for creating additional living spaces like a new bathroom, increasing the size of a family/sitting room, extending a dining room space - the possibilities are endless.

build up

This type of addition is when you build onto the second story of the home, or create a second story altogether.

​ This allows the home owner to expand their living space without increasing the footprint of the home

​ This allows for the creation of an additional bedroom, a second floor bathroom, a home office - anything is possible with the help of the team at Lumen Homes Inc.
