Experience the Advantages of Building up Instead of Out
Besides giving you extra living space, second story additions in Arlington provide several benefits:
- Affordability: If you’re considering building a horizontal addition, you’ll have to pay the cost of digging a foundation and performing site prep work. A vertical build helps you avoid these expenses. You’ll also pay less for permits and other fees.
- More design flexibility: Another story gives you numerous options for customizing your home’s design. If you’re planning to start or add to your family, you can gain extra bedroom space. You could also include those dream amenities like a home gym, office or entertainment center.
- Better views: If your home is in the right location, a second level could provide some stunning glimpses of our nation’s capital and the surrounding Arlington countryside. This feature can make your home more attractive to prospective buyers should you decide to sell.
- Ground floor improvements: Adding another story also allows you to make changes to the first floor. You can complete a whole-house renovation project that serves your family’s needs for years to come.
