How to plan a home addition
While adding an addition to your home can take some time, developing a detailed plan will make the process go more smoothly. Zen Living specializes in home additions and can help you through every step of the process, from design to final construction.
Excellent communication is the key to a successful home addition project, so we will try to understand your expectations during the first few meetings (which can be at our showroom, a virtual appointment, or an on-site consultation) to discuss your wants, needs, and goals, for the home addition as well as determine its feasibility. Our design professionals will then work closely with you to create a detailed design and plan, considering all your needs and desires. Once you approve the plan, we will work on bringing your vision to life. Zen Living takes pride in our workmanship and uses only high-quality materials and finishes, so you can be sure that your home addition will be made right.
