Minnesota Home Addition


Adding that extra room, bathroom, or simply square footage can change your home for the better. The issues you’ve been having with your home CAN be resolved. Leaving you happy with your neighborhood AND the home you’re in.

The most common addition we do for homes in the Twin Cities area is a kitchen bump out. We simply add 6-8 feet along the width of your house giving you more space in your kitchen. (while also adding an additional bathroom or mudroom) With a lack of bathrooms on the main floor of many older homes in the Minneapolis and St Paul metro area, adding a half bath can drastically improve the usability of your home. We all know a 10 x 10 kitchen just doesn’t work in today’s modern living. A larger kitchen can drastically affect how you feel about your home.

Another common addition is adding a room to the side of the house.
You can gain a family room, library, or office on the ground floor and potentially finish the second story as well. We’ve helped many homeowners go from 3 bedrooms 1 bathroom to 4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms. It’s a change that will give you the space and functionality needed. Also, depending on your budget we can also add space to your basement or create a storage area under the additional room.

We have also helped homeowners add a second story onto their existing ramblers, which is another unique way to add the needed square footage while staying in the location you love.

These projects often blend the old with the new… something rarely thought about until the end with other contractors. House Lift understands this from the very beginning. That is why we insist on having our own carpenters on staff. Upon completion of our clients project, they are thrilled with how seamlessly old transitions to new.
