Home Additions
Mike Nelson Construction has many years of experience in the design, engineering & production of room additions.
Do you love your home but just wish it was larger? What do you do when your house is too small, or lacks essential rooms such as a family room, an office, or a guest bedroom? You could decide to sell and move to a larger residence, or you could consider adding a new room addition onto your existing home.
Do you build up or build out?
What about a bump out?
What's a build out?
Room additions are the perfect solution for growing families, couples desiring a second story retreat, or for those looking to attach a new kitchen, home office, or fitness room to their existing floor plan. Proper design and planning is essential to making the most of your existing home and seamlessly blending the new addition. Room additions provide your home with more living space while increasing its value and your enjoyment.

There are two ways to add additional space: add a second story or increase the footprint of your home. Mike Nelson Construction can design either way but sometimes the part of the house you need dictates which method. Kitchen and living rooms of course tend to be on the first floor. But if you need additional bedrooms or home office, a second story could be the way to go. Mike Nelson Construction can help you make that decision.
Most additions are build outs which means increasing the footprint. Usually, we’ll come in and dig up the area where the addition will sit and build a new foundation or slab. Then we’ll build the walls and roof of the addition and then we’ll blow out the existing exterior wall and link the new and old spaces.
A bump out is an alternative for saving money on a small addition. Bump up square footage without a higher price tag! We’ll hang the space off the edge of the building. Mike Nelson Construction can extend a floor about 3 feet for a 10 to 12-foot length. That’s enough to add a bathtub to a bathroom, add additional seating in a dining room or add more space in a living room. This can save up to 15% on construction costs!

Adding a 2nd story addition to your house can improve the appearance of your home and property.
At Mike Nelson Construction, we have one goal in mind when adding a second story to your home: to build a quality second story that provides beauty and function, but is also safe, reliable, and complies with building codes.  Building a second story is an extremely detailed and meticulous project, and should only be handled by industry professionals. We are fully licensed and insured, as is each contractor who works on every job site.
There are plenty of reasons why you may want or need your home to be bigger. Due to landscaping and lot sizes, you do not always have the option of spreading it out further; sometimes you need to build up rather than out. In addition, adding a second story can increase your property value in terms of larger square footage, but also aesthetically with elevated views of the surrounding area that aren’t provided through ground floor additions.
