NJ Family Room Addition Facts
Are you interested in building a family room addition on your home in New Jersey. Creating your family room home addition can instantly solve the lack of square footage that your family desperately needs.

Many homeowners that consider moving like the idea of staying put if they can increase their existing homes area especially if they can build a family room on their lot.
There are some considerations that need to be addressed when you are thinking about building your NJ Family Room Addition. Each lot has a specified amount of allowable building coverage. This simply means that you can’t overbuild on your property and that the local government regulates this process within your building department.

There are some considerations to think about when designing your family room addition in NJ. After determining the estimated size that you can build, you want to start to layout the floor plan. Window and door placements are first. Access from the existing room into the new family room needs to be considered as well. Usually the family room is built off of the existing kitchen or dining area. From a simple 3′ arch up to a full span opening can be considered for your New Jersey family room. You want to have an open floor plan from the existing into the new so the larger the opening the better. Don’t forget about lighting. Insert plenty of high hats. Try to zone them off so that all the lights aren’t on at once. You may even want to consider a separate ceiling fan centered with it’s own switch as well. Remember, as soon as you start inserting the furniture, your family room will get small real fast so try to consider at the least, a family room stating in the 16x20 size range and nothing smaller.
Lastly, I would like to touch on the area of doing your due diligence. Using common sense when selecting a family room contractor is to be assumed. However you still hear of some horror stories regarding contractors. Start by simply doing an online search of the contractor you may being leaning towards. The information is out there, so use it.
