Home Additions or Conversions: The Big Debate

Home additions and conversions both add livable space!

Are you getting the most out of your home? Do you need more space? Do you have unused space? Building a home addition or converting a room into usable space could be the solution you’re looking for.

All Star Construction, Inc. can build an addition to your home or convert that vacant attic into a study, bedroom, playroom, or a game room. Also, your garage can be turned into the family room, workshop, or outdoor kitchen you’ve always dreamed of.

So, which do you choose? Home additions or conversions?

Additions increase the square footage of your home, giving you more living space. In addition to more space, there are a variety of other benefits to adding to your home with room additions or a complete second story. For example, you can rent out the room for additional income, house extended family members, add luxury to your current home, and most of all, add value to your home.

Here are a few ideas for your home additions or room additions:

Sunroom Addition 

If you need extra space to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beautiful outdoors all year long, consider a sunroom addition. All Star Construction can design a sunroom for every lifestyle, every budget, and every home. A sunroom is a great way to escape the rest of your home, without actually leaving your home.

Garage Addition

You love your home. The bathroom is luxurious, the kitchen is unique, and the bedroom is a masterpiece. However, your beloved home lacks a garage. A surprising number of homes do not have a place to safely park your vehicle. A garage addition will give you more room for storage, a safe and practical place to park your car, or an area to partake in your hobbies.

Second Story Addition

Adding a second story to your home provides many benefits, especially if you live on a small lot. One of the greatest advantages is if your home needs both additional space and repairs. Building a second story lets you hit two birds with one stone. Also, you can make changes to the first floor, keep your outdoor space, and raise the market value of your home if you choose to sell in the future. Moreover, you will have space outdoors to have a beautiful garden, refreshing pool, or amazing playground for your children.


Game Room

Many homeowners are beginning to add a game room to their home. Some build a second story to accommodate the room; others convert an unused area. Financially, a game room can help a family save money. Staying home to play your favorite games alleviates the need to spend money going out. It also allows the family to spend more time together, especially when the entire family can play the same game.


Do you have existing living space that is underutilized? Consider a room conversion. As opposed to a home addition that adds square footage to your home, a room conversion, such as a garage remodel or attic conversion, takes an existing room and redesigns it. This increases the value of your home and improves your home’s livability, all without adding square footage.

Garage Conversion

A garage conversion is one of the easiest and most cost efficient ways to add living space to your home without a room addition. The best part is that most of the structure—including foundation, roof, and walls—is already in place. When it comes to a garage remodel, the ideas and possibilities are endless. One of the most popular conversions is creating a master suite, whether it is a bedroom, bathroom, or mother in law suite. What if you choose to remove the garage doors? Replace them with a set of windows or French doors. This adds charm and personality to your new room.

Attic Conversion
