What to Consider Before Building a Room Addition

When contacting us at Corbett Design Build to discuss building a room addition in Raleigh, NC, consider the following factors:

  • Your timeframe and budget – We want you to have realistic expectations about how long your room addition or home expansion will take, so having a sense of when you’d like it to be completed is a great first step. We also want to stay within your budget, so having a budget to work with ahead of time will make things easier.
  • Your overall design and aesthetic – You don’t need to have every detail mapped out, but a general idea of the overall design and aesthetic you’re ultimately hoping to achieve with your room addition will get us started.
  • The primary purpose of the room addition or home expansion – This is key to determining the size of the room and the features you want it to have. Are you adding an extra bedroom or guest room? Will it be an office, family room, kitchen expansion, basement remodel, or garage redesign?
  • The key components of your redesign that you can’t live without – You may realize that the budget you planned for may not allow you to have everything you want in your redesign. Having a sense of which features are crucial to creating the space you’ve envisioned will help you focus.
  • The permitting and building restrictions in your area – Having a basic understanding of the permitting and building restrictions in your area will give you a better sense of what’s possible to achieve with your room addition or home expansion.

Effective Planning for Home Additions

If you’re not sure where to begin in gathering ideas for your room addition in Raleigh, NC, here are some questions to ask yourself that will help you begin effectively planning:

  • What problem am I trying to solve with my home addition or room expansion?
  • What is my timeline, project scope, and budget?
  • How do I want the room addition to look and feel?
  • What restrictions am I bound by with regard to space, function, time, budget, or permitting?
  • What type of home additions are possible?
  • Who can I hire to do this and do I need a builder, architect, and contractor?
  • Should I live in my home while the work is being done?

The Process of Room Additions and Expansions

We work closely with our clients throughout the entire process of designing and building your dream room addition or home expansion. We like our clients to be as involved as possible in every stage, from the initial consultation to the final product. Here are the key stages of our process for room additions and expansions:

  • Initial consultation – We’ll meet you at your home to discuss what you have in mind, your goals, your budget, and the overall function of the room addition or home expansion. We can give you a general sense of the timeframe and cost.
  • Design phase – If you decide to proceed with us, we’ll move into the design phase, where we’ll create 3D renderings of your project for you to review, tweak, and approve.
  • Approval and contract – Once you approve our designs and are ready to move forward, we will draw up a contract for you to review and sign. At this point, we are bound to a timeline and budget.
  • Blueprints & permitting – We will draw up the official blueprints and apply for all necessary permits.


  • Preparation – We will discuss how to prepare your home for our arrival and construction. If you’re staying onsite during the construction process, we’ll help you work out where you’ll sleep, which bathroom you’ll use, and we’ll help you protect your home and belongings so they won’t be damaged during the construction process.
  • Construction – We pride ourselves on working efficiently and on schedule while still providing the highest quality services. We’ll communicate with you every step of the way and make every effort to stay on schedule and on budget.
  • Last looks – You’ll have a chance to review our work and make sure it’s what you expected. It’s your chance to make any final changes (if possible and within scope and reason).
  • Completion – Once approved, we will complete the finishing touches, including painting and installing plumbing, hardware, appliances, wiring, and other features.
