General construction is a broad term that encompasses all manners of alterations to the footprint a building. What do we mean by footprint? If you were to take an aerial or side-view photograph of the structure after a general construction project, the footprint (or shape) of it would be altered. This includes residential general construction and commercial general construction projects like:
· knocking down a wall to expand a kitchen
· building a large family room addition
· adding a second floor office
Many homeowners use another word – repurposing – when they contact Build it Brothers. This is another form of general construction and includes renovations such as:
· converting a home office into a bedroom, or vice versa
· turning an attic into a child's play space
· converting a conference room info offices
Cape Cods in particular lend themselves to general construction projects. For example, the amount of headroom in an upstairs bathroom or bedroom can sometimes be limited in a Cape Cod. So a homeowner seeking to add height to these rooms will hire Build it Brothers to add a “dormer bump-out.” This will increase the headroom, and, in the process, alter the roofline of the home.
General construction involves more than simply installing new cabinets or counters. While these additions might indeed be involved, they are only a small piece of the overall project. Build it Brothers readily welcomes clients who are looking for a full general construction project, as well as those who just want to make changes to the existing layout of their home.
Whether you are considering a general construction project or something on a smaller scale, it’s important that the renovation connects seamlessly with the rest of your home. We strongly recommend hiring an experienced professional who pays attention to the details.
