3 SUMMER HOME RENOVATION IDEAS

Three summer renovations for your Iowa Home


While summers are usually spent out at the ballpark or in the backyard grilling with friends and family, this year has inevitably been a little different. Instead, we’re spending a bit more time indoors, and at home than we ever have in the past. All that time spent cooped up in your home probably has you making a few too many honey-do lists, and wishing you had a bit more space. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list of 3 Summer Home Renovation Ideas we can help you with, while still maintaining our distance!

#1 Idea: Add or Update Your Deck

Summertime is the best time to add a deck to your home. Even if you have an existing deck, it might be time to give it a much-needed upgrade! At about a quarter of the cost of a fully-enclosed addition, decks add great outdoor living space that can be enjoyed for the majority of the year. With endless options to choose from for materials and colors, your deck can be as personalized as your home!

#2 Idea: Add an Addition

Another way to get a big bang for your buck is to add a sunroom! You can help increase the value of your home by adding usable square footage. When it comes to any remodel project, planning is your best friend. The more prepared and informed you are before you get started with the process, the smoother the project will likely go. Most sunrooms are built on the back of a home for a few reasons. One being that the back of the home usually has the most space available to add on to, and the other is that backyards typically yield a gorgeous view. If you’re interested in building a sunroom, check out our post titled, “Sunrooms in Iowa” for a few key things to consider when planning, designing, and building a sunroom in our area.

#3 Idea: Build a Custom Garage

Dare we bring it up again? How are those Honey-Do lists coming along? We know you’re loving all the time spent at home with your loved ones, but for those times when you just want to get out of the house… don’t you wish you had a space of your own? We can help with that. Whether you want an attached or detached garage, we will work with you to develop a plan to build your vision. If you’re in need of some inspiration, you can visit our Ankeny showroom!

All three of these renovation ideas are great summer projects that can be completed in a fairly short time frame. We’re also happy that these options still allow us to maintain our distance to help keep you and your loved ones safe! Have a project in mind? Contact us to get started!
