Home Additions


Home additions are one of the most ambitious remodels you can do. With most remodels, you’re simply rearranging things, tearing down walls, or replacing flooring. Home additions are in a league of their own because they require construction, and they quite often require major changes to the existing infrastructure. For these kinds of drastic changes, it’s essential to have high-quality design plans and building permits. A home addition not only needs to be designed according to code, but it also will require a permit from the city. At Houston Plans and Permits, we can help you with both of those things.

There are some small changes to your home that you can make without having to go through any complex processes. Nobody’s going to hold you up or demand a permit if you’re just repainting one of your rooms or replacing your cabinet doors. But, if you’re doing a much more ambitious renovation, you might have to go through the city, acquire professional design plans, and ensure that your plans are up to local building codes.

For these reasons and more, home additions can be a daunting renovation. At Houston Plans and Permits, we’re here to make things easier. While we can’t actually build your home addition, we can provide you with the plans for it. We specialize in creating house plans for renovations and new construction projects. You take those plans to a contractor, and by doing it this way, you can save a lot of money.

It’s absolutely essential to work with professionals when you’re considering a home addition. Home additions quite often tear down existing parts of the home, and when you’re adding a new structure, it has to be cleanly implemented into the existing architecture, while also being built to safety standards and building codes. If you want high-quality design plans, along with the necessary permits associated with them, contact Houston Plans and Permits today.
