We know how wild the seasons can get in the Mitten State. From summer to fall to winter and finally spring, we love them all. Do you? As your Michigan home builders, Schultz Builders is ready to help you get the most out of your house.
If you’re looking for ways to enjoy the seasons like never before, here are 5 amazing home additions for Michigan homeowners that you can think about today.
1.) A Sunroom
One of the most common home additions is a sunroom. But we also want to call your attention to the stars.
A sunroom is a great addition to your home if you want something that feels close to the outdoors, but has the amenities of the indoors. Sunroom windows allow you to soak in the outside, without having to be outside. But what Schultz Builders offers is an opportunity for you to also admire the stars while being inside. Glass roofs have become more popular and are a great way to keep sunrooms warm while also adding a view of the beautiful Michigan sky. So, whether it’s summer’s heat or winter’s bite, you can appreciate the outdoors from indoors with a sunroom.
These rooms work great as a play or study room as well. Whether you have little kids that need a hang out space or you’re a parent trying to get away to work, a sunroom will give your home the add-on it needs. There are tons oftoo to help you customize yours no matter the season!
2.) An Outdoor Gazebo
For the summer fans, an outdoor gazebo is a must. They’re basically an oasis.
The addition of an outdoor gazebo is more than just adding a small pavilion with some chairs. You can get wild with it. Adding things like an outdoor grill, a bar, a fire pit or fireplace, and a lounging section are all ways to turn your backyard into the summer hangout spot.
If you have a pool, outdoor gazebos serve to help keep your pool parties outside. Rather than having guests cross your threshold with dripping swimsuits just for a glass of water, you’ll have the gazebo there for them to hang out at with any refreshments or snacks they need.
3.) A Proper Family Room or Den
Your living room is more than a space to put your couch. It’s where guests will gather, sit, and enjoy your company when it’s too cold to be outside.
One of the best home additions is a proper family room or den. There’s a lot of creative freedom with these too, and what your home has now doesn’t have to be the permanent choice.
If your family room or den feels closed off or disconnected from your home, we canremodel it to be more welcoming towards guests. One of the most popular options is to add a fireplace. With indoor fireplaces, you get the joys of sitting around the flames without battling the outdoor elements. There are tons of options with that can change the dynamic of your home as well!
4.) An Upstairs Balcony
When you wake up on a Saturday morning, imagine sitting out on a balcony and overlooking the land below while sipping a warm cup of coffee. Sounds nice, right?
An upstairs balcony is one of the best ways to enjoy Michigan. For three of the four seasons, you’ll be able to soak in the outdoors without having to do anything fancy. Upstairs balconies are perfect if you want to put on sweatpants and relax, read a book, or simply sit and daydream for a little while.
They’re also one of the many additions that increase home value. An upstairs balcony doesn’t have to be a small spot with a table and chair, we can design it to be an entire hang out space with outdoor couches, hanging swings, and even a fire pit.
5.) A Finished Basement
We all know the term Michigan basement. They’re cold, sometimes damp, and often require people to crawl around them.
Due to Michigan’s abundance of freshwater lakes, Michigan basements are common. But if you have the opportunity to add a furnished basement, we’re here to help make it happen. A finished basement adds a ton of value to your home, and they also serve as a popular hangout space no matter the season.
With a finished basement, you have a ton of free space to play with. This can mean adding a bar, an office space, or even an indoor movie theater. With Schultz Builders as your building contractors, your possibilities are endless.
