Renovate To Suit

Renovate to suit your lifestyle. If you love where you live but dream of having more space with a custom home designed to suit your own style and needs, updating your home may be the right answer for you!


One of the main reasons that homeowners move or build is because they want more space. The great news is that you can add that space to your existing home, allowing you to stay in the neighborhood you love without sacrificing your dream home. Adding a second story to your home not only doubles your existing living space, but can drastically change the look of your home for a more luxurious look as well. Adding an addition may seem like a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be. The experts at Modular Home Additions specialize in making the process as quick and painless as process. They walk you through the planning stages and help get everything together for you. The walls are prebuilt in sections so that when it comes time to begin work, they can have the old roof removed and the second story ready to finish in as little as 3 days!

One of the benefits of a custom home is the ability to customize all those little details that really make the home your own. With a little planning, you can do the same thing in your existing home as well. Moldings are the perfect way to add a personal touch to any builder grade home or condo and the new Option {M} line from Metrie makes it easy to select the right moldings for your space. The line is divided into 5 trendy design styles; Bohemian, Modern Farmhouse, New Traditional, Shabby Chic and Vintage Industrial. Each combination offers a variety of interior moldings and doors that work together, allowing you to quickly select the best options for the look you wish to achieve! – Metrie,


Custom homes often have creative design features like double sided fireplaces, stone feature walls, panel-ready appliances and other unique touches that really make the home unique. To create this unique touch in your home, you don’t have to redo everything. Instead, choose one unique feature you’d like to focus on and make it stunning. Consider which areas of the home will be most visible and choose a feature that will create that WOW factor! We love this stone half wall with a double sided fireplace, it makes a custom statement and divides the two rooms without losing the open concept feel!

  • It truly is “in the details.” A great designer and contractor can make all the difference between a nightmare renovation and a superior one. Worked with both!
