Exterior view of a Minnesota Home Addition by House Lift


Adding that extra room, bathroom, or 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 your home.

The most common Minneapolis home additions are 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 Twin Cities metro area, adding a bump out to your home can improve its usability significantly. 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.

Home office additions, a family room, or even a library can be gained on the ground floor, while potentially finishing the second story with dormer additions 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 add space to your basement or create a storage area under the additional room.

We have also helped homeowners with a second story bump out or even adding 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 of a project 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.
