From simple modernization projects to extensive building extension work, East Bay Developments is experienced in all kinds of custom home renovations including decks and additions.
There are almost as many solutions as there are circumstances surrounding additions or renovation work. You may simply need more space for a growing family, or want to make room for naturally evolving lifestyle as time passes.
Custom home renovations allow you to stay in the home you love, saving you the worry of moving into a potentially unknown new living situation. Besides, your home is much more than four walls; it’s the place where you’ve created memories and have already invested so much love and attention.
When you really don’t want to move, but would love to make changes to your home, there are multiple ways of achieving your new dreams. We can help you find solutions for all situations.
Improving Your Lifestyle Without Extra Space
Basement suites and additions are popular renovations in Victoria, BC. Many older properties that need updating have unfinished or finished basements that owners could turn into valuable extra living space for the family. They could even provide additional income from rentals, or become self-contained suites for extended family members.
External additions worth considering include raising the roof to provide an extra floor. You could take advantage of elevated views or enjoy an extra bedroom or home office. If adding another storey isn’t possible or desirable, consider converting a garage or existing attic into a functional room.
Sometimes, just changing your current internal layout can provide the improved living space modern families need. Maybe moving the staircase would open up the entry hall, or removing a dividing wall would create a bigger, open plan family room.
Extending Your Home’s Footprint
On a larger plot of land there is scope for external additions in the form of extensions. You may, for instance, want more kitchen space or the luxury of a private bathroom off the master bedroom.
Building outwards from the existing house provides as much extra living space as you have land to build on. Another huge benefit is that external extensions don’t compromise the existing internal structure too much.
Deck Additions and Renovations
Yards are special places that deserve just the same attention to detail as the interior design of your home. Whether you use yours for fun family evenings, a party zone for friends, or just a cosy outdoor nook to relax in, a deck provides the ideal outdoor space.
We are expert carpenters who share a love of fine woodworking, so any deck built by East Bay Developments will enhance your home. Choose patios, sun decks, sunrooms or arbours, and add ornamental but functional fencing. Beautiful outdoor spaces make a vital connection between indoors and out. They extend your living area in ways both practical and functional.
No Planning or Permit Worries
In Victoria BC and surrounding areas, whatever building, renovation or additions work you choose, you’re likely to need planning and building permissions. There are also municipal inspections that ensure safety aspects such as smoke detectors or damp-proofing and ventilation in basements.
The challenge of finding your way through the legal processes involved with building additions or completing renovations can prevent those not in the trade from going ahead. East Bay Developments takes care of all the necessary legal aspects on your behalf, including liaison with relevant authorities and drawing up all required plans. We aim to make the process as simple and stress-free as possible, always keeping you informed, completing work quickly and efficiently, with as little disruption as we can manage.
