What’s going on at Michael F. Simon Builders?

This month, our featured project is a second story home addition. Our clients loved their home and the location, but wanted more space. They were working with a home designer on plans and different addition options while Simon Builders was working on a similar project down the street.  After a joint meeting with the designer and our clients, a final plan was agreed on and we got to work taking out a section of the roof and adding a bathroom, bedroom and walk in closet to the second floor. (Click on any of the pictures below for a larger picture).

Front Before Front After

FloorplanExtra care was taken during the demo and framing stages, as this addition is directly over the existing first floor dining room and kitchen. Now, as you walk up the staircase, a larger landing offers access to the new bedroom and to the hallway leading to the bathroom.

With so much work going on, we made sure to finish as much as possible outside, before opening up and connecting the new addition to the existing home. This helped minimize the dust and commotion inside the home. After all, we were sharing this space with our homeowners and wanted to interrupt their normal routine as little as possible. Inside the new rooms, we incorporated the same look and feel as the rest of the home.


Our goal for every addition is to use materials that match the existing home. From the exterior, you would never know this home had an addition. Both the front and rear of the home look as if  they were part of the original construction, With there now being a well-balanced appearance to the home.

We are happy to have helped this family add the space they wanted to their home. If you have been thinking about remodeling and want to know if your ideas are possible, we would love to meet with you to talk about it. From concept, budget, and design, through the construction process, we use our knowledge and experience to help make it a fun and enjoyable process for you. When all finished you will have a home you are proud to show off to friends and family.
