Do you wish you had improved or enlarged your home before Covid-19? After weeks of constant togetherness and constant activity throughout the home, a few more walls or a private work space designated for a home gym, home schooling or working remotely may sound like absolute dream come true!
Is Now The Right Time To Expand Your Current Home?
You might think that it is an unusual time to consider a home renovation during a national health crisis, but at Fiderio & Sons, we have been hearing from people that they have set their sights on home remodeling projects with laser-like focus. Many homeowners are evaluating the areas in their home that just don’t work for them amid Covid-19, with the stay at home guidelines. Let’s face it, being confined in one place with the entire family for a few weeks or months is a sure-fire way to get you thinking how you’d like to modify your house so everyone has room to work, study, exercise and relax!

Therefore, we have continued to offer complete interior & exterior home remodeling services and amid Covid-19, we are using video calls, teleconferences and virtual conversations to help get the conversation started for many homeowners taking precautions. There is a noticeable shift however that we are beginning to see, in what homeowners are seeking as far as, home renovations. Due to the social distancing, homeowners are exploring basement renovations, side additions, sunrooms and exterior exteriors. All of these renovations are geared towards increasing the living or recreational space in a cost efficient way and improving the functionality of the home.
Rethink the Space
Turning an unfinished basement into livable space is one of the most affordable ways to boost your home’s usable square footage — and your home’s overall value at future resale. Imagine gaining an attractive new bathroom, home gym or recreation area downstairs before the winter sets in and weather limits our ability to be outside together. You will appreciate the bonus space whether family members must quarantine or just need some alone time from the rest of the clan. Untapped basement space can be converted into any type of room, from a wide-open floor plan to multiple smaller rooms for a gym, home office, and kids’ play area or even make shift classroom.
Investing in Yourself: Find Your Zen
Maybe it’s because we have all be sheltering in place, but being outside right now seems extra special. Our team is building several sunrooms for families who have made a commitment to enjoy the fresh air while increasing their homes square footage. The concept of adding an enclosed porch or a three season room has given some families the chance to enjoy the fresh air regardless of the extreme weather. No better way to enjoy the upcoming fall season in a mosquito-free space, where you can study, work or reflect and find your zen. Call today to chat about how we can help you enclose your current deck or build a sunroom or two season room.
Many people have been displaced from their gyms, bringing into question how they will continue to maintain a a regular fitness or training regime. Often, home gyms are typically installed in the “leftover space” in a house, like an attic, a corner of the basement, or a spare room or nook. When designing a home gym, functionality often trumps beauty and aesthetics. Many homeowners will add a mirrored wall since it makes you feel less closed in and wall mounted a TV so you can enjoy your favorite show while on the elipical or attend a virtual exercise class. At the end of the day, it’s your personal space that should be tailored to your favorite workouts. You won’t regret investing in your health and wellness.
