We are underway with a good sized addition in nearby Elko New Market. The home is 19 years old owned by the original owners. Their needs have changed so we are adding a nice dining room addition that also includes some craft and hobby space. The lower level will be dedicated to hobby work as well. Our work also includes adding on to their garage….one never has enough garage space!
Whenever possible I like to match new foundation work to existing foundation work. In this case the house has a concrete block foundation so that is what we chose to use on the expansions. One difference is that we wrap the exterior of the new foundation with 2″ of Styrofoam insulation. That keeps the foundation warm and really reduces heat loss. Since the garage is not heated we don’t use insulation at that foundation.
