The Templins: Room addition in Clairemont

The Templins are long-time Ritz customers. Over 10 years ago we completed a front addition and they were very satisfied. Fast forward a decade and they came back for more outstanding service.

Ritz Design Build opened up the kitchen by taking out the support wall. We engineered the project so the surrounding walls could support the roof. The kitchen and family room now form a backdrop for the many gatherings the Templins host. When it’s football season, friends and family come over to watch the game. Naturally, the large screen is visible from almost every point in the family room and kitchen area, so die hard sports fans don’t miss a moment of the action!

The living style of today’s family is rapidly changing, from generations before us.  The needs and desires of today’s modern family have evolved from a space to complete homework & watch TV, to allowing space for multi-generation families to comfortably live together.  Ritz Design Build recognizes the value of a higher quality of life, and how to obtain it through the construction process.  The name “family room” has begun to adopt a new definition as well.  “Great rooms”, are creating space, comfort, and an organized, fun, workable environment, for all living in the home.

Design according to your lifestyle
The Ritz Design Build team will help you prioritize and design a home that reflects your lifestyle. Before you begin an addition, you should really look at how you spend your time. Do you love your home being a social hub?  Do you entertain friends & family frequently? Then you may want to open up your family and dining room like the Templins did. Do you want a cozy haven where you can curl up with a good book? Then you should consider putting your dollars towards a reading niche.

Finding the right area and space for any addition is one of the vital keys to a successful room addition.  Our team here at Ritz Design Build, will assist you in the proper placement, to optimize your homes unique characteristics!

Plan your technology needs before we begin
Are you a technology lover? If you’re like most of us, a large, flat screen TV is the center of the entertainment!  We work with you, to plan out the details, before we finish the design. The days of the massive home entertainment center are over. We can integrate the flat screen on the wall, tuck the components in a sleek cabinet, and hang the speakers. By incorporating your entertainment solution into the remodel, we place all the wiring in, during the construction phrase while the walls are still open, saving time, headaches, and resulting in a beautiful space!

Connecting inside and outside
Many great rooms tend to lead to the backyard. This is an opportunity to bring more of the great outdoors in! Do you have a simple sliding glass door? Ever considered french doors?  What about a door wall system?  Is the view to die for?  Ritz Design Build will work closely with you, in the design phase, to obtain every ounce of worth and beauty the home offers!

3D: Know before you build
Our design process is very thoughtful and comprehensive. Our team will visit your home and ask what you are expecting out of your addition. If you’re like most of us, your want list is probably more than you can afford. Fear not, this is where Ritz Design Build really shines. We’ll help figure out how to get the most bang for your dollar. Then our designer will get to work and render his designs in digital 3D models. You’ll literally get a feeling of the flow of the floorplan and can see how furniture and windows fit into the design. You can see what’s working and what’s not and give us your feedback. We’ll then make revisions and you’ll take another look. As Ritz Design Build, design is a collaboration between you and our team.
