Home addition plans create growing room

Architect - Christine Mondor , Contractor - Dan Meade

Written by: Joan Pearlstein Dunn

These Pittsburgh-area homeowners had found their dream home. Or so they thought. When they bought their three bedroom, one bathroom house in 1998, they were perfectly happy, but by 2010, they had four children and the design just didn't cut it. “We loved our neighborhood and couldn’t afford to upgrade to one of the bigger homes, so we added on a 1,600-square-foot addition which was equal in size to our original house,” says the owner.  “It gave us everything we wanted, in the price range we could handle, and without having to move.”  

The couple went with Dan Meade, of Prime 1 Builders, as their general contractor.  “To begin with, we discussed their needs and developed a sketch and budget,” says Meade.  “It’s a service that we provide to clients before they decide to move forward with an architect.”
