Some other tips:
We also suggest inviting a professional to your home for an hour to go over what your options are. This can be someone from Gene Rodgers Home Improvement or a realtor. With any room additions and plans for expanding your home it's always good to get input from a professional about how each addition will improve the resale value of your home. A professional can advise on current designs and trends and help you gauge whether your room additions are compatible with what others are doing in your neighborhood.
Look at home magazines for inspiration. Cut out any articles that inspire you and any photography of handsome room additions done elsewhere. This will help you as you consult with your professional.
