For most people, when it comes time to add a Monmouth County family room addition, price is a big concern. After all, an addition of this magnitude is something that most homeowners will only do once or twice in a lifetime. It’s often something you plan for and save for while your family is growing, so one day you can add more living space to accommodate everyone comfortably.
This family needed an in-law suite for their colonial style home in Hillsborough, New Jersey. The space over the garage was a perfect location for the bedroom suite. The project included a large bedroom with a sitting area, two closets, and a roomy, three-fixture bathroom.

If you buy a new bicycle you take it for a ride. When you buy a new baseball glove you break it in having a catch.

Today’s mud room may have more possible uses than any other room in the home.

In a recent interview, Neil Parsons, owner of Design Build Pros, was asked the following questions about basic home improvement projects that may be achieved for less than $1,000.
Q: For homeowners looking to make home improvement upgrades, but only have a $1,000 budget, which areas of the home should they focus on? Why?
A: First, I believe that all homeowners should have a list of projects that need to be done. As we all have learned, anything committed in writing is more likely to get done. The list should be broken in two categories: things that need to be done and things than you want to have done. For example, you need to address a leaking faucet or pipe but, you want to change a kitchen countertop. I always suggest completing the needs before the wants for many reasons. One reason is goal setting. People will want to get through the needs as quick as possible to be able to start on the wants.
