Our Design-Build Second Story Additions in Fairfax, Virginia

As a design-build firm, we’ll work with you from start to finish on each project. Our team will create a plan, a timeline and a budget that fits your goals.

With second-floor additions, our typical process is as follows:

  • Consultation: One of our project managers will meet with you and go over your general goals. We’ll take measurements and analyze the space to create a foundation for our design.
  • Design and planning: After our consultation, we’ll begin creating and finalizing project plans. We’ll discuss all the specifics, including budget, function and design requests.
  • Construction: After we settle on a design, we’ll obtain the necessary permits and set up a construction plan. Once we get started, we’ll work to minimize interruptions to your family’s life as much as possible. You’ll have access to our in-house project manager at all times.
  • Completion: Just before we finish construction, we’ll do a final walkthrough of the addition to compile a list of any last-minute tasks. Once we complete the last few steps, you’ll be free to enjoy your new space.

When you work with us, you’ll gain access to a team of trained engineers, designers and other specialists. You can provide input at every step, and we’ll work with you to make sure you’re satisfied with the final product.

Enhance Your Home With an Upstairs Expansion

There are many benefits of second-floor additions in Fairfax. When you add a second story to your home, you can:

  • Add extra living and storage space.
  • Get a chance to remodel the ground floor as well.
  • Rent out the new rooms for additional income.
  • Improve your family’s privacy while giving everyone their space.
  • Increase your home’s market value if you choose to sell later on.
