Add on to that house. You may have many reasons for wanting to stay where you are, from the kids are in a great school, to you only live 5 miles from work, to you home has a great view. So add on to that home; if you don’t want to expand horizontally, you can add a floor and go up instead. We have done both for clients. Here are a few photos.
Addition in progress
Here is a photo after completion:
So consider an addition, with a bathroom, when you find yourself having to wait 30 minutes to get into your bathroom!

Addition - Before
This 1978, three bedroom two bath home was dated and lacked the square footage for the entire family to enjoy. With a confined kitchen, they wanted a space to open the kitchen up to and entertain. We added 260 square feet of den and entry to the front of the home while completely remodeling the master and kids bath. We also replaced all the dark stained doors and trim with painted materials to modernize the home and give a fresh look and feel.
