Considering an addition for your home?  No matter where you find yourself in the process whether you have no idea where to start or you have construction plans,  knowing how the remodeling process works will ease any concerns about a process that can seem overwhelming.

The Addition Process at Moss Building & Design

At Moss, any remodeling project from a kitchen to a basement begins with the initial consultation. Through this consultation, your sales consultant is able to assess your needs and learn more about your family dynamic. This way, we can learn more about you in order to make sure we understand exactly what your ideas are and how they fit in with your family, home, and budget.

Questions about the Remodeling Process

Co-owner Jason Hampel, when he goes on appointments, uses this initial consultation to cover a number of topics related to the client, their home, and needs. His goals are to:

  1. To fully understand the family situation
  2. To talk about the needs of the family and their ideas
  3. To get more in-depth on where the client is in the process
  4. To give his feedback based on the client ideas, needs, design, budget, and his experience

Part of Jason understanding your family situation will include questions like:

  • How long have you been in the home?
  • How many family members?
  • How long do you plan to live in the home?
  • How many family members live in the home?
  • How do you foresee using the home in the future? ( i.e. do you plan on having in-laws move in?)

Through the topics covered on the appointment, you will discuss the ideas you envision for your home as well as provide expectations for your remodeling timeline and the guidance you have received on the project prior to the initial consultation.

Finally, Jason’s feedback will take into account his impressions  so that he can give you his expert opinion based on the feasibility of the space, timeline, and budget.

This level of care provides us information so that we can give you a proposal that accurately reflects your needs.

Financing your Addition

A large part of any remodeling process, especially an addition, comes down to what is reasonable based on your budget. There are a number of options available from refinancing your mortgage to a home equity loan. In his consultations, Jason will go through a number of questions to see what would make the most sense and a few things he considers are:

  1. The equity you have in your home
  2. The time frame you are considering for the addition
  3. How much your home is worth

Based on these factors and others, we would determine your level of need which would dictate the right option whether a loan or in-house financing offered by Moss.
