When planning a new home addition, you should be aware that your existing house is much more than just four walls and a roof. It is an interactive system made up of many components including the basic structure, heating, ventilating and air conditioning equipment as well as the external environment. Each component influences the performance of the entire system and some additions may require structural changes.

Construction is largely a sequential process. A variety of professional resources with a wide range of expertise is needed to complete a project successfully. They need to be available at the right time and be able to work together at different stages of the project. For example, when building components or manpower is not available at the jobsite when needed, it will cause delays.

Shortcuts on material and labor will affect the outcome of the entire project. The cost to fix problems caused by the use of substandard materials or incorrect application can be substantial.

Working with Hood Canal Home Builders gives you the confidence that your project will go smoothly.
The design you choose will determine what kind of construction method needs to be used to build the home. More complex structures can include elements of post and beam or timber-frame construction combined with conventional framing. Homes can also include solid log rafter systems instead of posts and timbers. This means that different structural techniques are needed to support the roof and floors.
All structures have the advantage of being able to incorporate open plan living, vaulted ceilings and large expanses of glass to maximize the use of natural light. Although they are a little more costly to build than conventional homes, they generally have a much higher appraised value.
Hood Canal Home Builders can help you determine the right kind of design for your budget. Your choices of design, materials and construction method also play a major role in the look and feel of the finished home.
