Design-Build Second Story Additions in Falls Church, Virginia

As a design-build construction firm, we’ll work with you from start to finish. You can single-source your design, engineering and construction services with our team. We have years of experience in adding second stories to homes across Northern Virginia.

Our process is as follows:

  • Consultation: We’ll set up an on-site visit to assess your home and project goals. For one to two hours, one of our project managers will take measurements, determine necessary permits and discuss your ideas with you before moving onto planning.
  • Designing and planning: Our architects, designers and project managers will finalize detailed construction plans and design outlines. We’ll account for design goals, budgeting and functionality.
  • Construction: After we’ve finalized the plans and signed the necessary contracts, we’ll begin working on your addition. We’ll strive to minimize any interruption to your family’s lifestyle, and you’ll have access to your project manager if you have questions at any point.
  • Project completion: Near the end of construction, we’ll hold a walkthrough with you and make a list of any remaining points to address. Once we finish construction, your home warranty period will begin. You can start enjoying your new space right away.

The Benefits of Adding a Second Story
