Digital Additions started as an aid for contractors. It's often difficult for home owners to visualize exactly how a new addition will change the appearance of their home. As a homeowner, it can be frustrating to try and make sense out of blueprints. As a contractor, it can be difficult to explain the blueprints and "paint a picture" for your client.
Digital Additions take the guess work out of the picture. With real world experience in home remodeling, my Digital Additions are built on a solid foundation of understanding the construction process and what can or can't be done. I "build" the digital addition to match the existing structure just as a contractor would. The end result is a print, email, or photo the contractor and homeowner can agree on and share with friends and family.
Side Addition and Porch Roof
I had to combine two photos to allow room for the landscaping and new addition. In the end, a side addition was added along with landscaping, a porch roof, pillars, and railing.
New Front Porch
Taking the photos myself ensures that I get the best views for the project. This client wanted to see what a new semi-enclosed porch would like before committing to the project. I had to digitally remove the awnings and rebuild the windows before adding the porch. Once the porch was complete it was then obvious that the sidewalk would have to be moved as well.
Making a small porch like this just a little wider often involves more work than the homeowner thinks. After seeing the final image, it is more clear that landscaping will have to be removed, a new roof will be needed, and possibly new pillars. But they also get a clear picture of how their home will look with a wider porch and roof.
Two Level Addition
This client was concerned with how the new addition would look and what style of windows would be chosen but also how much landscaping would need to be removed and re-planted. For this project I digitally covered the deck with the new addition, added matching siding, large view windows, and a roof pitch that suited the existing structure.
