What should you do if your current Rochester home is no longer meeting your needs? Family dynamics can change. Perhaps you’ve added a child or two since you first moved in. Perhaps you’ve had an older family member move in with you and you want to be able to accommodate them comfortably. Maybe you need to make some changes that address the needs of multiple generations. Or it could be that you’re looking ahead to your own retirement and want to make sure you’re in a place you’ll enjoy for years to come. How do you go about creating your perfect Rochester home? Is new right for you?
Often, the first thing homeowners think about in response to changing needs is making a move to a new home. Sometimes that’s the right move. For some individuals, however, a new home isn’t what they really want. What if you really like the neighborhood you’re currently living in? What if you have a great relationship with your neighbors? Good neighbors aren’t a guarantee when you move into a new community. And what if you essentially like your house?
Remodeling your home is a great way to get the space, comfort, and convenience you want from your home—without having to move. Whether it's an extra room or a new second floor, Gerber Homes & Additions can work closely with you to turn your existing home into the home you really want and need. We’ve developed an approach that allows side, back, and second-story additions to be completed while your family remains in the house throughout construction.
You may not need to do a full-blown addition to your home. You may simply want to re-purpose some of your existing space to make better use of it. Maybe you find yourself working from home more often—but don’t like the idea of setting up shop in the kitchen or the spare bedroom. Here’s a look at how to create a great home office.
It could be that simply re-designing your kitchen will make your home more comfortable and convenient. Here’s a look at kitchen features you’ll want to take into consideration—whether you build a new home or remodel your existing home.
