A great advantage of living in the Midwest is getting to experience all the seasons—summer, fall, winter, and spring. Native Iowans know that the length of each seaon varies from year to year, and each is completely out of our control. Every seaons brings its unique set of benefits and challenges. The wind, rain, heat, and snow can drop like a vengeance, sometimes out of nowhere. If you live here, you've likely heard the saying, if you don’t like the weather, just wait 5 minutes. It’s bound to change!
There are plenty of reasons to consider transforming your attic into a useable area, and many options are available for you to turn it into a space you'll love. Utilizing attic space will create more room in your home for you and your family and increase your home’s resale value. Attic conversions in the Des Moines area return an average of 75% recoupment of cost.
Winter has passed and spring is all around us, and you know what that means. Iowa homeowners are excited to take advantage of the weather by moving along in full force with their home addition projects. Whether your family is expanding or you want extra storage space, now is the time to brainstorm.
Have you been longing for more space in your home? Extra bedrooms certainly come in handy as families grow, but these are not the only add-ons worth considering. Your goal should be to maximize living space without wasting square footage. Rather than adding a large spare bedroom that will be only minimally used, consider a four season patio of equal size, which may prove much more beneficial for your family. Bigger is only better when the space is utilized. Knowing your needs will help you decide which house addition is best.
